    Interesting but I don't believe there is a set speed more like this.

    Low Speed Corners = rely on Mechanical grip more than Aerodynamic force.
    Medium Speed Corners = rely on Mechanical grip and Aerodynamics force pretty equally.
    High Speed Corners = rely on Aerodynamics force more than Mechanical grip.

    Of course there will be some sort of cross over point but this could vary depending on the car the track and the conditions.

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    Not sure there is an "official" classification.
    What I use for myself is an approximation of mechanical, transitional or Aero infulenced grip so (in gears)
    1,2 Low speed corners (mainly mech grip)
    3,4 Med Speed Corners (mix of Aero and Mech grip)*
    5,6 High Speed Corners (mainly Aero infuenced grip)*
    * A corner which is very interesting in this context is "pouhon" (turn 7?) left hander two turns after Rivage in Spa. At entry on high fuel its 4th gear and not much aero grip. As your speed (and aero grip) builds in 5th then 6th gear you can actually wind on more lock.

    Ha Ha Andrew SNAP!
