No, safe to say DC still holds that title.

I don't think they had the timing hooked up so DCs lap times were all unofficial.

interesting perspective as to why Mercedes has been the suck:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/formula1/19064856

Which then makes me wonder why Lotus is still pursuing the double-DRS even if its a dead-end technology? McLaren was also talking about potentially jumping on the bandwagon.

McLaren to follow Ferrari’s ‘pull-rod’ lead in 2013

Another publication is reporting rumours McLaren will follow Ferrari’s lead in opting for innovative pull-rod front and rear suspension for its 2013 car.

A little more than a month ago, the Spanish sports daily Marca said the British team’s MP4-28 – like Ferrari’s current F2012 – will have pull-rod front suspension.

Until 2012, the configuration had not been seen since Fernando Alonso raced a Minardi more than a decade ago.

Ferrari struggled initially this season, but Marca said the Italian team’s giant strides of progress since then piqued the interest of McLaren’s technical director, Paddy Lowe.

“Obviously, at the start, after the winter tests, we were a bit behind,” Ferrari’s British technical director, the former McLaren man Pat Fry, said this week.

“I think we learned a lot in this period and used that later on.

“In my opinion, we have overtaken a large part of the other teams in terms of development over the season — we staged a good recovery, but there is still a long way to go.”

Similar information about McLaren’s pull-rod approach for 2013 is now being reported by Autosprint, the authoritative Italian motor racing weekly.

“A few months ago it would have been unthinkable,” said the publication’s Alberto Antonini.

Antonini also said it is “likely” Ferrari will keep the pull-rod layout for its 2013 car.

Haven't seen it mentioned, but it looks like GA has sold out at COTA.

i thought Lotus' was an additional rear wing stalling above 150mph, and not anything like Mercedes' front wing contraption.

i think it is more akin to F-duct from 2010 than double DRS.

Oh funny you should mention Tiago, he just tipped up in WTCC testing. http://www.autoblog.com/2012/07/30/h...ew-wtcc-civic/

Few photos taken today at Circuit of The Americas. The facility is coming along nicely. It was really cool hearing all the details about paving process and stringent requirements needed to be FIA complaint.

Good photos HRG. I love going out there and seeing it grow.

Turn 1 looks insanely steep.

Turn 5 is the back stretch which isn't flat at all. I'm wondering how the drivers are going to feel doing 175-220mph with 2 humps.

Turn 1 in person is pretty awesome. It's a complete rundown then climbs steeply.

Are they really predicting speeds near 220mph on this course? That's far and above anywhere else.

You know marketing peeps, haha. I'm pretty sure 210 isn't a far stretch.

A planned 'hero's homecoming' Formula 1 street demo for Williams driver Pastor Maldonado in the Venezuelan capital Caracas was cut short on Sunday when he spun and damaged the car on only his second lap.

Maldonado, visiting his home country for the first time since becoming Venezuela's first grand prix winner, was due to complete a 12-lap run on the Fuerte Tiunas military parade ground in front of 20,000 fans and numerous political and military VIPs, with team owner Sir Frank Williams and shareholder Toto Wolff also present.

But Maldonado was caught out by the extremely bumpy surface of the show ground and spun his Williams FW33, damaging its suspension on the roadside kerbing.

The run had been planned as the highlight of a day of national sporting celebration, during which Venezuela's top sportsmen, including Olympic gold-medal winning fencer Ruben Limardo and IndyCar racer EJ Viso, were paraded before the assembled crowd.

However, fellow PDVSA-backed driver Rodolfo Gonzalez saved the situation by performing an eight-lap demonstration run in his GP2 car.

A violent electrical storm shortly after Gonzalez completed his demo ended thoughts of repairing Maldonado's car to resume running.
He can't even do heroic homecoming parade laps without crashing into something
