Talk about millimeter perfect! Max takes these turns in the hairiest possible way, as far as I can tell, with a distinctive engine note as he exits the second turn. This is precisely where he crashed in free practice last year. I'm going to qualies tomorrow with a friend, but probably not the actual race. Just too dear.
Greetings from Gig Harbor!
Such awesome seats to watch FP....your description of millimeter perfect is....perfect; I'll NEVER forget the 08 race from Casino Square....the first 1/3 it rained....the second 1/3 a dry line was being established....the last 1/3 was FLAT-OUT....only one GP pilot sounded like he was flat through Casino Square....it was HAM....so close to the Armco that a sheet of paper wouldn't fit....it was surreal to see just how fast the cars were negotiating the corners....it just didn't seem possible; we were staying in Nice and took the train on race morning....it was unbelievable to see nearly 100,000 arrive on the Principality....we watched the Porsche Super Cup support race and the remaining Formula races....and then The Boys came out to play.
