:rofl:

I can't think of any trends about the three I've been to. Although Webber won two of them, so maybe there's a link? :p

But we have decided to go to Monza next, so you can already write down a DNF :)

I don't know why, but the atmosphere there is so much better than at the Nürburgring, you tell me why.

Trees make a track, I'm sure of it. And the Tifosi too!

So we can make this fun fact then; 4 of the 5 F1 races attended by the F1Zone writers/staff have been won by Red Bull :p

Evans & Abt are the most likely drivers to make it into F1 one day. Evans showed great pace in qualifying whereas Abt is a very clean, consistent racer. He did a very good job in avoiding trouble and has the pace to win races.
Abt was unfortunate that only half points were awarded for the feature race in Spa otherwise he might be champion. However, I think he shouldn't stay in GP3 for another season as there is very little he can prove now.

I agree, Daniel Abt and Mitch Evans were surpreme in GP3. But Tio Elias, that last race, made me sit up and think 'that was a damn good performance'. So maybe another year in GP3 for him and then move to GP2,could be one to watch. Similarly to Da Costa.

But most deffinitely Abt and Mitch deserve to move up.
