Is it really a corner though? I thought it would be easy flat for most F1 cars. Maybe not the HRT But I think the art there is to choose your line. For example, I've noticed that Button/Vettel/Alonso (only 3 qualy laps of 2010 I've seen) take rather different lines to each other there. Alonso is a more "late apex" line, Button a more "conventional" "mid apex" line, and Vettel takes it like the old Club corner (apex very early, then just put the car through one straight line all the way. It's been a while since I've seen those laps though so I could be slightly wrong in my descriptions.bomz_za wrote:I'm excited about turn 13, tight left-hander. Its exit determines the top speed down the back straight.
A large part of that, it seems, was the wing level - RB seem to have been covering off some of the straightline-faster cars by using less wing angle on the rear, whilst McLaren were trying to cover the Red Bull's cornering downforce by sacrificing their spare top speed and adding more rear wing.beelsebob wrote:I doubt that – at Sepang it was McLaren dominating through the fast corners.
