It's been raining since wednesday with a break on thursday (the day I went). Yesterday it started again but the teams actually love it when it rains here because you can test dry and wet all in the same day/session/week and get a lot sorted out. The Sauber was doing some serious miles and only went in from time to time only to come right back out again. It was really shifting it some too. Alonso was doing short stints all afternoon in the Ferrari.
I've taken several cars around this circuit (GT, 147 GTA, MiTo...) and seen an 8C and Brera do a few laps but nothing compares to the speed these F1 cars manage. It blows you away the way they flick the things around the corners and just sprint off. Although it's twisty and short it is actually regarded as a fast and very technical circuit. Shame they don't open up for track days but it's council run so they're not bothered. Trying to put a preassure group together to get them to open it up like other circuits around the country. Would love to get the 164 on there!!
