    They ate saying in the coverage that the circuit will be updated next year :s

    Last sector apparently.
     
  6. Correct James, The Last Sector/Corner and the Pit entry will have a major overhaul next year.

    Very dissapointing, i like this track and pit for being very narrow :D

    Apparently they're widening the pit straight to encorporate a run-off area.
    Due to a death this year when someone ploughed into the wall.

  9. I think there has been 2 there this year in a short space of time, along with a few others over the last few years.
     
  10. that's correct i read 2 Article's who said there was 2 fatalities.

    such a shame, but safety comes first whether it ruins the integrity of the track or not.

    Nico Hulkenberg in the Force India? What happened to Sutil?
     
  12. Nico Hulkenberg was allowed some track time for FP1 only :)

    Seriously Sutil doesn't need it for the first stint, he's pretty decent in the car imo.

    oh btw check this out....

  15. This must be the most odd Practice in a very long time. If you look Sutil in 9th in Free PRactice nr.2 and go all the way down to the last driver you will notice ´that all teams have lined up after each other.

    If anyone else isn't watching FP3, Hulkenburg has just said he knows he has a seat at Force India next year. I wonder if Vijay Mallya appreciates this revelation.
