Re: The Official Hungarian GP practice thread

Red Bull situation is interesting. If what we read is true that the engine mapping they had allowed for a better exit from slow corners then Hungary would be a particular circuit where this would be a fairly big advantage that they have now lost.

Re: Hungary a boring track?

I really like Hockenheim. I know it's not what it was but it still has one of the best places for passing all season and the 3-4 corners after the hairpin also also great for action. Hungary is a shame, yes the regs do not help but even GP2 races tend to be a bit dull around that circuit compared to...

Yep, tiny adjustments to all manner of components will have a tiny effect over a lap but all add up to a problem over a race distance.

Also slightly short fuelling a car will mean they have to run the later part of the race in economy mode.
