The Running Commentary

European Grand Prix

hami_mcl_jerez_08pre_daim.jpgThis week see the end of the “break in testing” and onto the European Grand Prix. This circuit (Valencia) will be provide some really exhilarating racing, with cars reaching some very high speeds (300 kph) and also having to content with slow corners (80 kph).

Typical of a street circuit there is going to be little room for driver mistakes, and will be very punishing on the cars and drivers alike.

It will be good to see the free practice times when they start on Friday and to see how the drivers handle this circuit.

Once again we are hopefully set for some really good racing.
