Serious but stable condition for Aleshin, it was a big hit.
Very lucky for Kimball as well, it would be nasty if Aleshin was some inches lower…28th August 2014, 13:07 at 1:07 pm #272525
The pitlane is the line northest at the start/finish of the lap. The circuit is 7km including the around 900m pitlane :)
I guess I must describe it :D
The circuit starts with a quick left corner, and another straight coming. A quick S is coming up and it is followed by a kink and the first braking/overtaking spot on the circuit, which is a left-hander. (Before and after this corner the are some very small chicanes which I didn’t want to have, I may correct it later) A very long, fast corner is following, leading to a chicane which can be very tricky and helps overtaking. Another fast section is following, and we come to a 90-degree corner, another overtaking spot. We go to some easy flat-out kinks and we go to another heavy braking spot. Then we go to a fast left corner, small straight and we go to a fast S to reach the start-finish straight!
Widening is not necessary, maybe only in the part where “Mega Motors” is.28th August 2014, 9:23 at 9:23 am #272509

Alonso on Perez, beautiful, quick thinking.22nd August 2014, 15:51 at 3:51 pm #271074
Just to mention it, in 2012 we had changes to the layout. So Power’s lap, doesn’t exactly show the circuit Indycar’s layout.
And I hope Kanaan gets his second win at Sonoma, he deserves one this year.21st August 2014, 12:48 at 12:48 pm #270896
Each driver has three choices, for the time he is in F1. The number he gets depends on who else is on the grid. If Button for example leaves, 22 will be free for anyone to get. Or, for example, Bianchi’s first three choices were: 7, 27 and 77. If Raikkonen, Hulk or Bottas leave Bianchi will get one of his other choices.
But this of it. If each number is for a driver, and for the entirety of his career, in a few years we will run out of them. :D
Also, this number system started this year. From 1996 I think, number 1 was for the defending champion (driver), 2 for his teammate, and the other numbers depended on the constructors championship.
Before that, teams where exchanging numbers, if the one was the defending driver’s champion team, and the other was the successor’s team. For example, in 1989, McLaren had 1 (Senna) and 2 (Prost) and Ferrari 27 (Mansell) and 28 (Berger). Prost won that championship and took 1 with him at Ferrari, with teammate Mansell geting the 2. McLaren got Ferrari’s numbers, 27 (Senna) and 28 (Berger).

I am not planning to go to the GP (I wish I could though :P ), but does anyone know how much staying in Yas Hotel during the GP weekend costs?2nd August 2014, 21:10 at 9:10 pm #269385

Alonso on Vettel, fast, around the outside, so close!!22nd June 2014, 16:45 at 4:45 pm #264077
Kvyat on Perez – Similar to Ricciardo on Hulk, but he completely outbraked Perez (was fully behind him in the start of the braking zone), with colder tyres19th June 2014, 22:00 at 10:00 pm #263449
Ι believe that the main advantage will be for Loeb. In rallying, even with the co-driver, you may well see something unexpected in a corner, and it is so difficult to remember all corners here, even for the drivers…19th June 2014, 15:43 at 3:43 pm #26343811th June 2014, 20:06 at 8:06 pm #263027
@Jackyflatter: #Duval suffered flesh cuts (lower leg) and a cut on his neck, probably ’cause of the belt. No life danger. he’s in a MRI. #24LM #LeMans201411th June 2014, 16:51 at 4:51 pm #263023
That is really bad, I really hope he is alright :(10th June 2014, 18:56 at 6:56 pm #263004
