I think the most important is to save people around and bring electricity back everywhere. There's no doubt the track will survive under an even improved form. The first time I went to was in septante cinq if memory serves, and I remember the place is almost impossible to drain under heavy rain.
I do remember real champions like Gerry Marshall in his Magnum surfing the streams crossing the straight at Uniroyal tower level and the flooded tunnels, nothing new.

"Septante cinq" - 75? That's a construction I've never seen before.

Its the way some Belgians speak french, les Walllons, in fact they do it better than us! Septante for 70 as suggested by Max, nonante for 90. I remember they also say huitante in some Swiss areas.
Would be interesting to know if terence says 90° degrees or nonante degrés to his pupils…

You know, now I think hard I have a very distant memory of "septant" from years ago. I was an avid reader of Tintin in its original language, maybe that's where I recall it from.

Track limit infringements?Yes of course that's no problem for British F3 drivers(Until the get to Spa that is)
Had the task of helping a 16yr old learn Spa last Thursday,I think the kerbs were magnetic as he was naturally drawn to every one!
I then suggested that a road going BMW 240i was absolutely no comparison to what he would be driving today and that no doubt the Belgian CoC wouldn't take any excuses for allowing the car to be completely over the limit line.He explained the Series allowed you to go over as long as the inside wheels didn't go over as well.FIA say absolutely no wheels over,boy could be in for a dissapointing day.

Yes very.Brit F3 organisers say its OK,FIA say its not?
Laughable isn't it.Fastest top 11 drivers yesterday had their times disallowed.Sounds like F3 will be a better viewing than F1.?

Agreed! Fully agreed. I think the youngsters in F3 should not be allowed to watch F1.
What is confusing is during the briefings here you're shown that two wheels on the kerbs are allowed unless the two others are still on the track. Hence the discrepancy between the marshals reports and the drivers. Sometimes…
