However, the newly laid surface could be covered with a layer of oil and grease while paving.

Depends on how much running and the amount of rubber being laid down before the race, we could see very high degradation or a typical one because its too slippery and less abrasive.

This time pirelli is very conservative in terms of bringing the type of rubber this time.

You raise a good point, it remains to be seen how the newly laid surface acts.

That being said, I would be very surprised if it even rains a drop over the weekend. Rain is very rare at this time of year (it rains perhaps once every two months).

First onboard footage, track looks incredibly dusty. They better get the brooms out this week!

Yeah, all that dust plus a newly paved surface and high temps should be really interesting.

Agreed.

On another note, I still haven't gotten my track passes yet. So far all I have is my confirmation # and my race weekend schedule, which is really frustrating when the race weekend is 4 days away.

Gah! You beat me to it. I was also going to comment on the dust. That's gotta play hell on the engine!
