Twenty-thirty miles an hour more? Judging by that I believe you've never driven a car in a situation where you're twenty-thirty miles an hour faster than your opponent. See the picture below. As you can very clearly see, Kubica is about a car length in front when Räikkönen turns into the corner. Five seconds later he's zooming past at perhaps five car lengths away and seven seconds after that the gap is still the same. Had there been a speed difference of 20 mph through all these twelve seconds he would have been a good 20 car lengths behind Räikkönen when entering Eau Rouge. Now he was well in front which quite clearly indicates no speed advantage for the Ferrari. About "no intention to make the corner", 180 degrees of lock can very clearly be seen in the pictures. That's about as much as the wheels turn in a F1 car outside Monaco. Why turn that much at all if the intention was to take a wider line? And your point that the tyres would have cleaned before braking into Les Combes has one huge flaw in it. Yes they would but before that braking he had to take Eau Rouge, arguably still the hardest corner in the series, with dirty tyres and lack of downforce in Kubica's slipstream. Hardly a desirable situation. Interesting that overcooking it into a corner and thus cutting the chicane is acceptable but going too fast into a corner and thus running wide isn't. Just about as interesting as you foaming about "double ****ing standards" on the previous page. Hey, it's no secret that you seem to hate Ferrari and Räikkönen in particular but you could at least agree with yourself!
