2006 330i  [4.67]
2010 Formula 1 Turkish Grand Prix

Not the most exciting track, but still much better than middle-eastern ones.
And this is one famous one where Bridgestone recommend "tire-eater" Lewis Hamilton to make additional pit stop for the sake of his tires. That got him lose out in 2008. We'll see if this year there's similar recommendations to Lewis again.

yes i am.....i don't see this race was as exciting as Brazil last year....
might be fun to drive, but what about viewing?

I hope you don't think i'm a driver...

Many drivers also like Monaco, but for us, besides the girls and glamor, sometimes the race could be boring...and wat's up with Spain? *yawn*

I'm not saying its boring...just not as exciting to watch as Spa, Brazil....

Well said. Spa is my favorite as it's typically a real "race" and not a precession from start to finish. I also LOVE the pine trees and huge elevation changes. Just a gorgeous track setup IMHO.

I can see there's a lot close competition this year from P3-P8 between the Ferraris, McLarens, and Mercedes.

FRIGGIN RBR in their own little universe owning P1 and P2....
So far they are as good as Brawn GP last year. Just some unfortunate events happened with Vettel...

Spa...all time favorite...
I remember Bob Varsha said something like after La Source, there's another grid start for supporting races. just imagine you are sitting on the grid for GP2 or Porsche GT2 races....waiting for the start and staring on the Raidillion hill....

its just WOW!!!

even tho its a long track...but it does have a good flow and rhythm...
