The bustop chicane is now a right hand, then a left hand corner.....and the Start finish straight is now Longer !!...so the la sourse hairpin is moved into the trees...
what do you think?

I think those changes are good, much better than the one they had since 2003. But nothing will beat the real Bust-Stop Chicane, thatw as great, but this new version looks good and it's a great passing opportunity

Been my favourite track forever but I'm abit annoyed at the way they feel a need to f**k it over every few years. The old track was comparable to that of the old nurburgring but faster and a tad shorter and now it is nothing like that legendery circuit it was one of the most fearful and fastest and most challenging a few years ago and now they are making it more like the poncy tilkedromes grrr Bernie and Tilke get on my tits give me control of the circuits and I could give the best circuits in the world wityh good saftey why do they think hospitality is the most important thing who cares about the dum sponsors who have no interest in the sport but only go cause it's free.

grr sorry for the rant but general ballsing over of my favourite sport in the world really gets on my nerves.

BTW nice avatar nelmesy

I can't wait to see those car driving in that track!!! It looks sooo good! I hope that Kimi will take his third win in there (basically it would be third win in a row in Spa-Francorchamps for Kimi if he wins in there) :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Now the run to euo rouge is even faster than before
As the La sorce hairpin is further down the field...
So it should be more challenging than before

Not really they'll probably stay flat through eau rouge, but the speed wont differ much because of the aerodynamics

It'll be nice to have spa back on the calendar. The bus stop was a classic set of corners. But I hope the new corners allow more overtaking chances

As long as they don't modify anything else, the new Bus Stop looks so tight that will increase overtaking chances into La Source a lot, drivers can take different lines into the chicane, that'll be exciting in the race :D

i think that too many changes may cause the circuit to lose it's spirit.
