Wish they had showed more of the straight on shot of the "high point" of the esses instead of behind; we can see the front wheels come of the ground at full tilt. Just the coolest part of the coolest section of one of the coolest purpose built circuits in the world. I found myself yelling "show the other angle!" numerous times.

If we're talking about the Lexus in the tires at Oak Tree, it's rare to see a car there and is one of the (if not) slowest corners on the track. Not much of a danger, especially when the drivers heed the local yellow.

But I agree. Was happy that there was the appearance of sitting on the double yellows for a little while, allowing drivers time to remove themselves from danger.
