My third contribution for the AWD group.
The Hard and technical Suzuka track in japan.
Suzuka circuit Built by Honda as a test circuit in 1962, designed by HUGENHOLTZ John.
Suzuka has an 18-turn, figure-of-eight course.
- It begins with a fast 7th gear bend that tightens to lead into a
- series of fast S-bends.
- Spoon Curve and the legendary
- 130R are the other great challenges on this popular driver's circuit.
Overtaking is normally done in the
- 50mph Casio Triangle chicane at the end of the lap.
More difficult passing moves can be performed into the 140mph First Corner and very occasionally at the Turn 11 Hairpin.
I Steel do not understand why it's out of F1 competition for several years (!!) changed by Toyota FUJI Track.
It's despairing for a lot of professional pilots.
This is a real track for real men...
See particularly the way that Senna negotiates the corners... just art in it's summum!!
See also Senna makes his own short preparation (he touches the tires to see the temperature, take a look for the front of the car, etc.).
Remark also that he has no special clothes which mean that this car is really for all persons and not just for racing.
Very intelligent commercial attitude from Honda at that moment.
Now when we see the Honda F1 results I and you understand better why they lost the F1 competition on their mythic circuit...
Can they do better for the end of this season and next year? Only the future let us know this...
