Arrow F1: Turkish GP '21

i hope this year it ll be dry for experiencing the track fully or at least if it rains it wont be like a butter on a hot pan again..

it can be really nice to see what sort of G's turn 8 will pull on optimal conditions on drivers.. if it ll be dry we might see a lot of head leaning towards to outside of the turn on 8 during the race..

there are few corners almost wholly leans on mechanical grip and some pushes the car for understeer.. and some corners are literally blind entries.. dying to watch how hybrid cars tackle the dry track..

even if im located in Istanbul recently most of the time not in Ukraine i wont go to track..

last years greasy race..



and here is the program for next weeks race weekend..

I wish it was last years cars too, much higher downforce than this year so the G forces would have been even higher. I especially wanted to see what the w11 could have done.

I hope it is as slippery...last year was a fun race that separated the men from the boys!
But they have worked on the track surface to remove the oils etc to make it more grippy.

Well mate ...Actually I heard about it . And the teams aren't sure about the grip there !

And I heard there's a chance of rain again ...

What do you hear about the weather prediction at your place there ?

And yeah ...It separated the men from the boys ! Like at Imola ...

Translated for you ...

"Mercedes considers engine penalty for Hamilton in Turkey"

•Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff does not rule out the possibility that Lewis Hamilton will switch to his fourth engine of the season in Turkey next weekend and incur a grid penalty for the race at Istanbul Park.

Rain always makes things more exciting, maybe George, Stroll, or even Seb will win. That would make me really happy.

If the track was oily last year I don't see how they can remove the oil from the Turkey tarmac,what process would that be then if tons of detergents are used then it may destroy the composition of the track after time.
