Only the horizon and the […]

Job security for the carbon techs.
Added challenge of keeping the car in one piece for the real race.
More thrashing for the teams if they don’t, providing more opportunity for something to go wrong in the real […]
Clay commented on the post, Inconsistent track limits rules confusing for fans, say drivers 7 months, 4 weeks ago
