Renault changes its mind..

https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/a...DwtQ4JolC.html ..

its so great see the circus back in Istanbul after 9 years.. as they mention in the article really wondering how much faster cars will be in Istanbul this time, they were 6 seconds faster than 2011's Silverstone quali this year..

For 3 + hours I was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway , because an accident had happened a few miles in front of me .
That day thousands of people missed the race , and I was one of them ..People ran out of fuel on the highway , and stranded on the highway .
That day I drove 7 hours back and forth and I never saw the race ..
But every year in summer I drive 2-3 times through the Belgian Ardennes , and Francorchamps is always part of it .
In the evening I always pull over at a fancy restaurant , but this summer no way my friend as you know about the damn virus and the heat waves !
I drove with my car over Eau Rouge , and at high speed I felt the downforce !
Of course big b@lls are required
My MBelgium friend -
OHHHHHHHH NOOOOOOOOO!!!!
That is terrible; to have such traffic on race day is just crazy.

Wait a minute....you drove your car over Eau Rouge????????

^ My US friend,with the way your Z is set up it would be IDEAL to take Eau Rouge/Radillon at full pelt avoiding the painted strip going up the rise on the right hander.

Nice.
The old Spa circuit was even more dangerous than today and apparently the legendary Masta kink even beat Radillion/Eau Rouge for pure racing madness.

DAS will give some heat on their tires in the rain ....

Pirelli confirmed that C2/C3/C4 will be used in Spa .
As we know that rubber compound is actually too soft for Spa .
