We've seen this before.. When Mansell left FI as world champ and then came to Cart and won the title. 1993 I think. I still believe the F1 drivers are better than the Indy drivers. "Steering around" at 4gs is still a lot of work

Default How to start an F1 car

Terrific article on what is involved in preparing an F1 car in current Road & Track magazine to prevent absolutely destroying the engine. Eye-opening.

Sarcasm... It took forever for anyone to get there and longer to do anything. I was amazed. There are a lot places I'd expect this level of incompetence but not Spa.
