He's their reserve driver for this year, so needed to complete his laps on test day in case one of their nominated drivers is injured before qualifying.

I know that a change to the Ford Chicanes was referenced somewhere in this thread. Is it new curbing or something else? I asked in the LM track changes thread, but so far I haven't gotten much of a response as to what change got made.

It passed me by completely, but then again I didn't listen to very much of the commentary at all.

Sounds familiar to me too, but I can't remember why.

I feel like it may have been Jorg Bergmeister? Like you can't cut them, or approach it too quickly, you'd do too much harm.

Quick look around isn't giving me the link, but I read it sometime in the last 18 hours as well.

Edit: post 41 of this very thread

Must have been slightly tightened, or the sausage curb height raised.

Sounds like they changed the curbs to reduce corner cutting.

They should have done what Thruxton did the other day for the BTCC, install a bloody great pile of tires on the kerb - that'd stop 'em!

They were doing that for the Corkscrew at Laguna Seca a while back, too.

More lovely sights and sounds from test day.

Includes #66 Ford running out of road at Tertre Rouge after putting a wheel on the dirt on entry. Looks very dry and dusty.
