I do too. Lets see if its any better than the old one.

I can see why they shaped it like that. Its curled up in the center in order to avoid the turbulent wake off of the engine intake/crash structure. The idea that I can imagine is that despite making the wing smaller (reducing lift) it will boost efficiency to the point that it actually develops more lift than the old wing.


Lets find out if im right!

Enjoy the race for those that are going. It is really a fantastic city minus these occupy wall street wannabe losers. Feel free to dispose of the protestors however necessary if confronted.

Quite a shunt from Heikki, surprised to see the clock is still ticking even in a Red Flag situation.

They don't stop the clock for red flags in practice sessions.

I finally got into F1 last year and this was the race that really sucked me in. The rain delay sucked, but the level of racing that followed was incredible. Being on nights, I'll be cutting my sleep short to watch this race.

I must agree with you. I was in Montreal last year and absolutely loved the city!
