Pretty standard to place cameras at the end of straights so it can see the whole thing, though?

Watched the whole race on catch up today and thoroughly enjoyed it, loved the in car camera work and overall I thought the commentary and coverage was pretty good. Great result for Rob Collard and co. and JB made a good fist of it considering the relatively late call using effectively a McLaren test car.

Absolutely, there's no other place to have them at Silverstone, just saying that it doesn't help make it look interesting.

I think they capture enough of the spectacle of Silverstone. It’s hard when the cameras are so far away from the track, but the camera angles are fine to me

Not really

While not at it's peak of the 80s layout, the new for 2010 design did a lot to correct the rot that set in through various layout changes to the grand prix layout in the 90s

Bridge was a fairly nothing corner in its day and did nothing to promote overtaking, wheras the "rubbish 1, 2 and 3" have all seen overtakes happen through various races, including side by side finishes in the ginettas previous to the British GT, something that Mr Osborne singlularly failed to point out, perhaps because it doesn't quite fit in with his blinkered "everything new is rubbish" view of the world

Plus they keep cars nice and close for a slipstream down the wellington straight too, all in all a great addition and a bit more high speed stuff too than the twisty, boring, laboured abbey chicane into bridge and luffield complext that was a waste of time when it came to trying to get cars to overtake each other.

I guess I'm thinking from an F1 perspective, but it was easily flat by the time they stopped using it, and wasn't an overtaking spot no matter what Damon Hill thought.

We haven't lost anything by not using it tbh, and we bypass a clumsy, needless chicane before it too.

Standing at Bridge watching anything go through flat (as I often did in the past) was always a highlight of a visit to the GP circuit for me. In fact, even now, when I go (normally only for WEC these days) at some time while I'm there I always walk round the corner on the way to watch from Luffield.

That chicane was a bit of a pain though....

We can invalidate most of Spa if we use criteria such as "flat in an F1 car" and "not an overtaking spot" to decide what's a bad corner.

I suspect the reason he calls it Rubbish is as a driver, because those corners really not as fun to drive

I was a bit disappointed with the race last weekend. I really wanted to see at least 30 minutes of clear green flag racing at the start and a safety later on and not at the beginning. If we had I'm sure Baldwin would have been hassling collard and could have made things a bit more tense.

I'm also really disappointed by this new rule of no silver silver driver pairings. It's been so successful this year so why change? It now means that someone like Rob Collard won't be able to defend his overall title unless he gets downgraded to an AM driver but can't see that happening.
