Top Drastic Corners

Post by kirai » 23 Mar 2008, 14:29

Turkey (Istanbul Park) - Turn 8
4.48 G #Fear

Turn 8 has 4 apexes and on second apex lateral G reaches 4.48, it's almost equal to braking force (4.5 - 5G's).
And drivers feel this pressure along 7 seconds!

Apex speeds:
1. 270km/h (3.68G)
2. 270km/h (4.48G)
3. 260km/h (4.28G)
4. 280km/h (2.64G)

Edit: The topic has been changed by mods. It was actually about G Forces. But it doesn't matter. We can go on this way...

shouldnt be any different considering at such high speeds the aero would be providing so much downforce the tyres would have huge amount of grip

lol you really hate him

But i guess the turn 10 on bahrain will be funny, is really hard to break and accelerate again.

Yes, Massa will spin there

From that list, voted for Ascari at Monza. It has to be Monza - with very little downforce for the drivers to rely on - that'll be the most exciting GP this year to watch.

Although its not like it used to be Eau Rouge still requires respect.

Watch it this year, no TC could make it interesting on the exit.

Other corners...

130r (old version), plus Dengas 1 & 2 at Suzuka

oops its not its turn this year is it! :blush:
Find the line, the speed will come.
