I didn't really notice anything about the pit entry but the pit exit looked stupid as the cars came out into effectively oncoming traffic. (only saw last 16 mins of FP2).
The exit should of gone across that run off that the Toro Rosso used with the incident (I think it was why Heidfeld went wide at t1).
Nice track, I spotted I few places for overtaking but not sure whether thats how they will turn out.

When ever a new circut is put into calender, in the first press conference all drivers and team bosses say that the organizators have done a great job, which was the same case in Singapore. All they say that they've done a great job.

What great job? Pit enterance is on the racing line, guys. How come they make such an error? It's very very dangerous. They must do something, have to, ought to, should.

I didn't see much rain today. So will it indeed be wet for the rest of the weekend or is it all just hype?

The track looks great on TV and photos.Can't wait to see practice tomorrow morning so I can see the track,though this thing about the pit entrance is worrying.

Nope, walked slowishly and the slowest way. Thought practice ended at 3:30 not 4. :p

The Hamilton "face" cam is a bit weird as you can actually see his face and expressions from that shot. I remember in Monaco when they used those clear visors we sort of had it but not like this time.

As for Trulli driving backwards this is what he had to say on it.
-it is one of the quickest corners on the track and you don't want to have a crash there."

Source
Why drive backwards through the exit of it then? Just do another lap and save yourself $$$.
