Re: Le Mans 2020

""but the Circuit de la Sart doesn't really make sense for F1. It's far too huge, and an F1 car would be flat for a frightening amount of the track.""

has anyone simulated what time an f1 car would lap on this track? curious always think of steve McQueen when lemans comes around

Well Aston Martin will be able to use the 2020 Merc rear end next year without eating into their development tokens. This bodes rather well for Vettel.
