It's about time the FIA finally fix these top speed detection points. This is now so retarded and bugs me to sh88!
Amen... Shows you how "stupid" some "intelligent" people still are...
The obvious place is at the end of the longest straight, yes? But that's also where the DRS is. A car getting a DRS tow will be significantly faster than one that's driving on its own with the wing closed.
Putting the speed trap where it is means that the cars are all driving with the wing closed at that point.
Anyone who looks at top speed as being a useful metric is deluded anyway. A car with a high top speed is often also one that lacks downforce and thus drag. Many examples over the years of car which top the speed chart but languish down the table in lap times.
