India’s a weird track. Unused for the majority of the year, the circuit takes a bit of running to get it in shape for the drivers. Late in the year (hot and humid, to boot), engines struggle to stay together as the season inexorably draws to a close. We’ve only three races to go after this before the 2012 season’s in the books. Time for India.
You can see by the short player list this week the time for the race is pretty gnarly. I’m typing this part shortly after 4 am.
- @joehrossi – 4
- @aussiedamo – 4
- @DrHansman – 4 (just for fun, not for points)
- @kbaskins – 5
- @harryagapidis – 5
- @graemefowler – 6 (but got in after formation lap!)
- @johnneese – 7
- @andyrolfe – 7
- @TrillF1 – 7
- @LargeEddie – 7
Three out, including Schumacher in the closing laps. Massa ran out of fuel on his post-race in-lap. No winners. Next weekend.
Not the most exciting race, but it’s still F1.
