Pre-race Questions ​

1) Silverstone has long straights but fast sweepings corners. With dirty air a potential issue, is it better to have low Downforce or a slightly higher Downforce setup?​



2) Given Silverstones fast flowing nature it is very easy to clean corner cut. Are you expecting penalties to play a big part in the result?​



3) What do you think the podium will be? Who do you think will set the fastest lap?​

1. To be honest, there is nl use being fast on a straight if you cant keep up with people, so i would say a good balance.

2. Yes definately, it is very doable to go along portion of the race without getting warnings, but it is very easy to get them. So yes, i definitely think some positions will change at the end due to penalties.

3. Deki, Michael, Neyo.

1. Low downforce - Wheel; High downforce - Pad.

2. With the new F1 cars in Silverstone it is harder to get penalties, so they aren't gonna be the key. It will be like any track.

1. A mix of both would be perfect. Slipstream is quite powerful at some parts around silverstone so overtaking shouldn't be a big issue even with a high downforce setup.

2. It's easy to invalit your lap in qualifying, especially through the S's. We could see an exciting grid. Silverstone isn't the worst track for corner cutting so I don't expect anything big
