Default F1 2013 - Round 14: Korean Grand Prix

Last year's thread:

Yeongam
Race Date: 06 Oct 2013
Circuit Name: Korea International Circuit
First Grand Prix: 2010
Number of Laps: 55
Circuit Length: 5.615 km
Race Distance: 308.630 km
Lap Record: 1:39.605 - S Vettel (2011)

Vettel has a more than comfortable lead in the championship, Webbo has a 10 place gride penalty and that's about it. Probably our last time here and not a single **** was given.

Is anyone else shocked by the industrial pollution at the Korean and Indian races? It's hard to see from one end of the straight to the other because of the haze. China is no better.

At least there were some spectators at China.

This is one of those races where Bernie takes a boatload of money from sleazy politicians and then sends the drivers to a hell hole to compete in front of nobody.

But, the boys will put on a good show nevertheless, and I, a slave to Bernie, will watch on glorious tape delay.

Europe has been in far worse financial shape over the past 5 years so they've looked to have races elsewhere in the guise of being "worldly" and a "global sport" but they're really just using these countries for a few years to get by. India and Korea are already gone after 2 and 3 years respectively (Korea is "provisional" next year ). The tracks are barely used the rest of the year after such monumental investment and production. Such a shame. But I'll also gladly watch my SkyHD coverage as it's available.

European countries don't need F1 to attract tourism, so they (and their gov'ts) are less willing to fork over the sums of money Bernie wants to hold a GP. He's got mouths to feed too, so he follows the money.

No more visible tobacco branding/sponsorship in F1 since 2008.

Found that thread - no mention of trash at all.

However, I did uncover a photo of the Korean trash removal in action.

Yeah, i remember reading about how everything was left exactly the way they left it. That even old driver's names were still on the floor or doors of the garage. Oh Korea!
I have to say, i dont hate this track. I like the really hard braking from the long straight to a nice right hander where alot of passing can take place and sector 2 is pretty legit. If this track was in a better location and actually maintained, it wont be as bad as everyone says it is

Should be a very wet GP. Typhoon Fitow is approaching.

Typhoon Fitow now has its sights set on East China instead of mainland Japan. The Korean Peninsula and Japan's Ryukyu Islands, however, still remain in harm's way.

That would "spice it up a treat". Although recent forecasts have it heading West.

as good as kimi and fernando are in the rain, the redbulls are still dominant...

as for the trash, i remember they were commenting on it on the air during last year's broadcast. maybe it was during one of the practices, but they did talk about the previous year's food being left in the fridge.

New pit lane exit among Korea circuit changes

The Korea race organisers have made changes to the problematic pit lane exit on the circuit.

Cars used to rejoin the track from the pits on the outside of turn one, leaving them vulnerable if a car entering the corner had to run wide.

This year the pit lane exit will run through the turn one run-off area, moving the flow of pit exit traffic further away from the racing line.

Other improvements have also been made to the track, mainly to the run-off areas and exit kerbs.

Last year Lewis Hamilton’s race was spoiled when a large piece of artificial grass became attached to his car. According to the FIA the material has been replaced at turns one, three, ten, thirteen and fifteen was a “more hard-wearing product”.

Asphalt has been applied to the verges at some corners to make the run-off spaces more durable. And ‘sausage’ kerbs have been installed at turns four, five, nine, eleven, thirteen and fourteen to discourage corner-cutting.
And a fun fact:

Quote:
Vettel scored a hat-trick of wins in Singapore and is aiming for the same in Korea this weekend. He’s led all bar 12 of the 165 laps raced at this track. Had it not been for an engine failure while he was leading in 2010, no one else would have won this race, so he has to start the weekend as favourite.
