Ahhhhhhhhh, you can just smell the ambiance! Why wouldn't we want to race here?
Lots of lock-ups all day as drivers tried to come to grips with the green, dusty asphalt, but it became an official session when Pete Rose stuck his HRT into a tirewall will some violence. It ain't real until you've got a dead HRT somewhere one the side of the road.
Reportedly, the weather at Valencia today was about 12 degrees cooler than they're expecting on Sunday. Of course, this played hob with the tires, and pretty much binned any sort of setup tests the teams may have been planning. So, yay, I guess. Nobody will know what they're doing! That should make Sunday even more (ahem) exciting.
Sebby Vettel was fastest on Friday, which means nothing, of course... except that he's won the last two races here. I know that practice results have zero relevance to anything on Saturday or Sunday, but it doesn't fill my heart with warm fuzzies to hear that he's again faster than all. I dunno about you guys, but I'd really like to see an eighth winner in eight races. I think we could legitimately see 10 for 10, though I'm not holding my breath.
Quals tomorrow morning, see ya there!
Which turns are those in your first picture? I can't tell if that car is approaching the camera or going away from it.
No matter which it is, that turn combo looks dreadfully dangerous. There aren't any gravel pits or tire barriers; just walls to run into if you lose control.
