    Turn 7? It ain't that hard, short&sharp or light&long brakes, flick one or two gears down, it's really easy to see when you use the ripplestrips or curbs as visual cues. Turn 11 on the other hand is a lot harder to get it right. It's easy to do 90-95% but really hard to do 100%. It's a bit like turn 14 but more open and hasn't got any real visual cues. In turn 7 you brake&turn about where the outside curb runs out, clip the apex and brake for T8 as soon as you can touch the outside curb safely (you need to balance the car between T7 and T8 to get good rundown to the overpass point in T9.)

    No more safety cars and red flags please :) Just a wet race would be enough to have an excellent race :.

    I doubt we'll ever see full wets being used again. Unfortunately they've decided to dry out any track to intermediate conditions, once there's some heavy rain. Races like Silverstone 98, Spa 98 or Catalunya 96 would have been impossible with the current way of dealing with rain.
