Fans will be able to watch the race, live and for free, in seven European markets including: Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, and Denmark.
What about others? What about France? Spain? Poland?
It's racing! All countries matter!!!
I am very much in favour of filtered water. Preferably passed through a brewery

So far it's looking like it's going to be 10°C at Nurburgring. Light rain and likely overcast.

I have a feeling the hardest compound will have a difficult time getting to the temperature window.

Starting pressure being too high will make it even harder to put heat in the tires.

So a bit like last weekends' 24h (red flagged through the night) around the Nordschleife then ;-)

He's just trying to make a statement about BLM etc.

I'm sure he's fully aware that the countries that can't access those races are covered by existing pay-to-view contracts. Those contracts won't allow free-to-air lives coverage for obvious reasons.

They will drop the pressures to help the teams. Mercedes will be fine as they seem to love the cooler temps.

Even with the sky high tire pressures the low temps will lower the pressures on their own. In fact with low temps they may not be able to turn on the hardest tire Pirelli will bring. They just won't be able to build enough heat for it to work.

Merc just might with their world beating downforce.

Has the fast chicane been taken anywhere near flat before?

Edit: Yes easily.

The very impressive part will be that the right hander that leads to the second DRS zone will be done with a brief lift, not braking necessary. There's so much time you can gain on the last chicane it's incredible.
