    :indiff: I was hoping for better from the CS, but it looks too prone to understeer. Maybe he overheated the front tyres?

    That's certainly the biggest moment I've seen him have, understeering wide coming onto the Fuchsrohe :eek:

    @super_gt did Menzel lose a bet with someone in order to have to do this?

    It is rare to see anyone driving on the edge on the Nordschleife.

    I've watched probably a hundred Nordschleife laps and I've never seen anyone use the curbs like that.

    The subtitles are in English. Very interesting, driving in reverse.

    That was great to see. Kubica drove so effortlessly, so smooth. Really cool to see that onboard footage :tup::tup:

    The really quick drivers make a fast lap look like a Sunday drive. Minimal steering angles with only minor corrections, no stabbing at the throttle, just smooth inputs the whole way around.

    That was a very scrappy lap. He loses over 2 seconds compared to his delta lap!

    I reckon if he did a good, clean run & chose the right gear at the right time, he'd be right on the cusp of possibly going under the 8:40 barrier.

    Good to see him using all his skill though & not relying on traction control to keep things in check as he does too often in the high horsepower cars.
