It's also not the only track with that many turns in a row. That section of the track is so good they included it in the design of COTA.

I think it's one of the best (little biased). You got high speeds, quick turns, slow turns, sustaining turns. Plenty of room to race, and a part from the entry speed t he pit has good entry and exit to not cause crashes. When you hit those corners proper it feels damn good!

Also the pit lane marker is pretty easy to see. There is a white line on the ground that is pretty obvious.

That's what I was saying before. It's a great track because it is a very hard track. Probably the most technical of any of the tracks on the calender. It is not like some tracks where a certain setup can make the track pretty easy. Because of the wide variety of corners, no one setup is dominant and you will always have some disadvantages.

Was quite an interesting race.  For the first stint I had a great battle with Tron.  It is too bad he ran into problems because I think we would have had another battle a few laps after I exited the pits.
After that though there was not much action and Dark and I were just barely able to pull off the 1 stop strategy so we were driving pretty slow.  The pit delta is just insane here so it was worth it and I am happy it worked out for the both of us!

Yeah I think it is pretty hard to dislike this track... and it is fast with a great flow to it which is what F1 should be all about!

Also wanted to mention that Tron's Pole lap was insane! JOB WELL DONE!

Deadzero, do u have a wheel? Cause if you are using a controller then ur complaint about this track is fair. This track is unplayable on a controller. It is the only track imo that u need a wheel to be even slightly competitive on.

I'd like to say I run with a controller, running any practice you can certainly see where a controller has downfalls on the track. But I qualified in P4 and finished in 7th. Not great but I certainly am not blaming it on my controller!

Also yeah, Tron was on something I'm 100% sure of it in qualification brilliant lap mate.
