Thumbs up F1: Turkish GP '20

quite a nice track to race and rapid elevation changes can be tricky during braking or for touching the apex sometimes.. and the last couple of corners have more than 1 racing line basically which makes the racing more fun and it ll probably let modern F1 cars overtake on the main straight as well as the back straight..

i guess and i hope not there ll be a crash in the first corner.. recent F1 cars are massive according to the last ones been there.. and first corner closes towards the exit which makes double lane cornering quite hard and probably we ll see 2 stops with high degradation..

program is here..

and for the track.. i ll let young Lewis to show corners.. needs to be watched on Youtube and music is awful though..

Yes but it's time for a miracle with rain with Max winning the last four races without punctures and bad luck.
I hear the people of Istanbul are friendly and helpful so that may be a good omen for Max.

He must be really frustrated , as we know his winners mentality.
4 DNF's in this season and non by his fault . All the other races he finished on the podium ....
Everytime that he could split the Mercs he gave us competition and tension in the top 3.
Even HAM's fanboys are saying : "Without MAX It's not a race anymore"
Amen !

You can't blame him when he lets off steam if things go wrong, if it was only his ability that counted he would come out on top in most races.

They continually post certain corners speed of every track from now vs early 2010s cuz of the expanded tire width and increased downforce, can’t wait to see how much faster these cars are thru turn 8 and if they are flat throughout.

I love the Turn 8 replica at CoTA. It's true...if you get the turn-in right, you don't have to move the steering wheel. I LOVE it!!

you guys think Red Bull really can leave F1?
Ferrari doesnt want engine freeze and at the same F1 is a need for Red Bull..
