I think they did a nice job dressing it up, but some of the overhead shots where the neighborhood is very visible are funny. Same with the parking along the canal on the back straight.Fast track, but nothing distinctively "Miami" about it. I was expecting something along the beach or marina, this track could be anywhere.
That one section right before the backstretch is Mickey Mouse, but the rest of the circuit is a lot like Jedda. If they can bypass that stupid chicane next year thy will have a decent track.After watching practice yesterday, I took notice of the landscape in and around the track and think they did a very nice job of making it look "pretty". I'm still trying to decide if I like the track itself but I'll wait for the race to see how it will work.
At least they aren't losing ground, but very disappointing after George led P2.I don’t think P6 and P12 are what Mercedes were looking for.
Yeah, Russell said after Q they’re miffed by it still. The car has an extremely narrow setup window and when it’s not perfect with the conditions it falls to mediocrity pretty quickly. Maybe after heavy rain last night the track will be more in their favor again? They ran the same setups in qualifying as they did on Friday and it sounds as though track evolution caught them out.At least they aren't losing ground, but very disappointing after George led P2.
The speed is in the Mercedes, that is, when they can unlock it. The car was fast yesterday and junk today. World's fastest rubic's cube.
