I like how he still checks his mirrors after exiting the pits - old habits die hard :)

You should see a doctor if you keep losing your memory on a yearly basis

I think Spa is very overrated nowadays, the giant run offs areas killed it.

I know its contentious.... so I'll simplify the question... other candidates for "top 2 must attend GPs"?

still the track layout is awesome. OK, nowadays eau rouge / radillion combo is flat out, but you can't blame the track for the massive amount of downforce current cars have.

Pouhon aka "double gauche" is still one of The corners imho.

For me it isn't what it was, say 8 or 10 years ago when it was right up there with Monaco and Suzuka as the ultimate challenge- for me Spa has been a bit sanitised (but I say that as someone who's only gone round the track on computer game) I mean, its still one o the best tracks, but not right up the top like it used to be.
Pouhon isn't the 150mph eye of a needle corner now like it was
Eau Rouge (at least for F1 cars) is 'easy flat' in the dry- that's not circuiot though- more down to the cars.
Tarmac runoffs at La Source, Les Combes, Rivage.... basically everywhere
Bus stop is easier now because there isn't the wall on the exit of the first part

Sanatised or not, still a great track. Few of my mates are going in a month. I couldn't afford it. Gutted is an understatement.

What was that? A Pirelli test drive with Spa coming soon? Do they collect data at every race track in advance?
