That's why he probably was trying the best set-up for S2, in the lap he did the purple S2, he did a 24.0 in the first sector, don't remeber the 3rd sector. But it's possible he cut the chicane :p

Here are the cornering speeds for each of the (significant) turns at Fuji Speedway:

89kph (55mph)
238kph (147mph)
265kph (164mph)
128kph (79mph)
73kph (45mph)
120kph (74mph)
98kph (60mph)
102kph (63mph)

Fuji is little more than hairpin after hairpin, broken up with long acceleration zones and just two corners tackled at more than 80mph.

Glock tops the timesheets on Friday on a Toyota owned track. How surprising... :p

Sounds unlikely that they'd use the old rules, but I've heard about using the new system which drops everyone's speed when the SC is on track and so the gaps between the cars should be retained better.

If Honda gets it working properly, then why should they don't use it?

Well, of course they can use it, but what I mean is: Their car is absolutely weak and their lacking from 1.5 to 2 seconds speed a lap, depending on the circuit and instead of improving the car massively, they bring "innovations" like this, which gives them probably 1 tenth or so in advantage. When you are Ferrari or McLaren it makes sense to talk about such things, but Honda should first get a decent car before they talk about the details in my oppinion.

They might as well try it as their season has been rubbish and they should see if it gives them an advantage for next year

Ferrari have said they might still use it next year, so it won't screw the championship up, they'll have time if they do. Then they'll be ready at the end of the championship used to the new method.
