      I think more of him.

      • Caught a couple laps of NASCAR doing the Indy road course. Funny going from F1 who is being very stringent on track limits this year to NASCAR where the racing line is to actually go about five car widths outside the boundary in some spots.

        • Summer break was supposed to start quietly, but it starts with Alonso singing a multi year deal with Aston Martin. Interesting.

            NASCAR will do the same at Watkins Glen both in Turn 1 and especially the Outer Loop.

            You should have seen the first year Indy ran COTA. I think they went into the next town on Turn 19...

              • I don’t understand Alonso. Alpine has been better than Aston this year and I think next year will be the same.


                Re: Indy, it appears Milwaukee is coming back in 2024 along with a race in Mexico.

                  This was a great read, thank you.

                  This though:

                  Pitting for the first time on lap 25-28-ish and then fitting the softs for about 15 laps would have left Ferrari another 27 laps on a second set of mediums. With the lower fuel load I’m pretty sure that would have been a better solution.
                  Lower compared to what? Is this a comparison of Hungaroring vs other courses? Is this just meaning later in the race hence less mass in the tank?

                    Lower compared to the beginning of the race. That’s why lap times get shorter as the race progresses.

                      TIL, thank you!

                      So is the idea that you can put the softs on later because the lower weight means more laps before they fray?

                        Exactly.
                        that plus the late dampness is why Hamiltons pace was so much better than George. Had it been more damp at the start, Russell may have gotten a much better lead to hold onto.

                                That statement is weird. If it were just lack of contract, he could have just pointed that out. But to go so far to specify that he won’t be driving for them.
