Arrow Portuguese GP '20

with a lot of elevation changes, some slow speed corners for overtake this track can be fun.. first corner will probably be different than the video but the rest will be the same it seems..



here is the program for the weekend..

I'd love to see Zandvoort take place and we can only hope this second covid outbreak fizzles itself out.

I'm not sure we can blame the team for this, particularly since no other staff members have tested positive. It likely comes down to a combination of unfortunate interactions with infected persons and a lack of precautions taken by the drivers when away from the team. Lawrence Stroll also tested positive, so that may be where Lance got it.

You're probably right, they make contact with so many other people that a momentarary lapse in precautions can be risky.

Unlikely with Lance being cleared to race,only if Lance's form drops off to the point where there is no option but to replace him and suddenly there are two seats open at Haas.

Max gets second in FP2,Lance turned into him without looking and got spat out of the track causing a red flag. There was minimal damage on car 33.

Obviously it's a historic venue with a unique vibe, racing in the Dunes you can smell the North Sea.
But I did some hotlaps there last year and I'm really wondering if overtaking will be possible for an F1 car (other than at the end of the straight). Could be a boring race.

Max's pitwall thought Stroll is going to go slow and they put Max in the wrong position at the wrong time. Stroll was ahead and he has every right to stay ahead because he was going on another fast lap. Max should've been wiser and backed off but he relied on his pitwall and Lance's wisdom instead of relying on his own judgement.

We'll see what happens after the stewards, probably nothing.

Hopefully nothing. I don't think it's either one's mistake. It's a new track and they're both eager to go fast for as long as they can.

Well my friend ,from what we know from MAX is overtaking no issue

I heard the Zandvoort circuit has problems with sand traveling by the North Sea wind .

Stewards have let it go, just the insurance claim to fix!
