    Well the track will be clean and green for the race. Braking into Turn 1 should be interesting.

    I like Mexico. The thin air is another wild card the teams have to deal with and makes for an interesting weekend.

    The local Ferrari Dealership in my area used to do F1 viewing parties. However, in Illinois, dealers can not sell cars on Sunday. I guess it was a bit much to ask the employees to come in on their only day off to host the events.

    Hopefully they (Ferrari Lake Forest) will do some again in the future.

    Official FIA weather forecast has a 40% chance of a shower in FP3, which starts in just under an hour. For qualifying there a "significant risk of a developing shower that can easily become a thunderstorm."

    uh-huh :rolleyes:

    Yeah Charlie, it's called track limits. It needs to be consistent in every race.

    Charlie Whiting has issued a zero-tolerance warning for F1 cars running wide during MexicanGP qualifying and the race.

    Nice Prac 3. More normal yet Red Bull are still quick. Dry qualy should be interesting. I think Red Bull front row is possible.

    Way back in the normally aspirated age. Some teams would bring an engine with more compression ratio because of the 10,000 foot altitude. It probably doesn't matter as much with a turbo, But other things could be effected.
