Ah Simone! I think you're meant to be driving on the black stuff - not the blue stuff ;)

Ecclestone has expressed an intention to return Formula One racing to the circuit by hosting a biennial French Grand Prix at the circuit beginning in 2013 (with a Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps in the alternate years).[1]

Is it just me or is this a hard track to learn.  I think the lack of scenery/landmarks keeps seeing me forgetting where I am on this one....

I didn't find it that hard. Most of the corners are quite distinctive.

Looking forward to giving this track a try.  I did have a quick run on an earlier Virgin but the lack of scenery turned me off so I pulled out.  Will be interesting to see what this place is like if it might be taking over some of Spa's races.

The practice server still has 0.5 on it, but the race server will be using 0.6 tonight.

Is she still a virgin seeing you pulled out due to lack of attractiveness.  ;D

Its been used quite a bit for F1 tyre testing so Bernie does get to run it quite a bit, there isnt any other real f1 testing outside of the few official season tests.  Here is some F1 tyre testing from a good POV angle as he sticks the camera in front of one of his eyes then drives to give a more accurate driving angle ;D

<iframe width="640" height="385" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/1go3dL2eSYU?fs=1&start=" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Its pretty silly how they keep limiting F1 claiming its for cost cutting then make them completely reinvent a new car every couple years. Then limit testing so the cars struggle early on due to limited miles and probably make them spend more money needing to get things done quickly between races rather then properly testing and developing cars as they need to. This would also give more young drivers experience in f1 cars being part of the testing program and sure the bigger budget teams would have an advantage but they do anyway so limiting things really doesn't solve that issue.

Wally is the exos the standard or S1 we will be using tonight, I will run a few laps of the new version and see if I can make a basic setup for the 3 cars.
