No pics to contribute sadly, but looking forward to this race more than any other this season. Weather reports that I have looked at saying dry all weekend too so happy about that.

Double S curves. It is said that if you get the first one wrong, all of them will be compromised.

Wow, that is some run up to T1. Blind as well.

I can see a massive pile up happening. Someone going in too late on the brakes.

Grosjean?

I'd try to qualify as far away from him as possible.

From memory that was Coulthard's run last year before the Tarmac was laid. The layout and elevation was the same, but his grip was obviously not going to be there.

I think he rated it a good track (from his limited experience).

this is going to be very dangerous if alonso qualified the usual 5th or 6th , because i can bet my house that there is going to be an accident in turn 1 in 1st lap , and he is in danger of getting t-boned from a late breaker

That turn one really reminds me of the first corner at the A1 Ring and there was almost always an accident there

It really does remind me of India with the elevation changes, blind and fast corners

True, it reminded me of that too. But this turn is blind and has a lot more space than at A1 ring. Hopefully no pile-up and hopefully no hot-headed youngsters at the front. I'm mostly worried about Perez, that guy has taken some stupid chances lately.

Best Tilkedrome ever.. it really looks awsome.
