No. Bernie will probably just insist they fly straight from Singapore to Russia then straight to Japan after. At least it keeps them East of Russia

Doesn't look that challenging really, it's a mix of Abu Dhabi, Valencia and a Prison...

I always love watching professional drivers doing stuff like that. The way they make the cars almost dance that is where you see there skill.

Definely a high speed circuit, so its welcome.

As for Vettel's standards that was one shoddy lap. You see him missing at least half of the apexes (even he's smiling knowing it's a sh!t lap), mostly because its too easy to overestimate the capabilities of the car. Few of those corners where you see him braking are easy flat out corners in an F1 car.

Bet he could go at least 3-4 seconds quicker if given another try.

Reminds me of Korea a lot with those walls on the outside of the track, but the last 2 turns look similar to the last 2 at Abu Dhabi.

Here's a funny example of an IDIOT (Pizzaboy) who drove a luxury sports car as if it was an F1 car. This vid never gets old. :hehe:

They've replaced the iron curtain with the concrete wall. That looks depressing as sh*t.

Lol Kvyat has a grandstand named after him in Sochi.

Can't be bothered to paste the link since its such a non event. And kinda lame.
