For Bahrain’s second GP this season, Formula 1 has decided to use an alternative configuration consisting of just a few turns and will be a big challenge for all powertrains.

The first simulations predict laps of just 53 seconds, and although many are intrigued, Romain Grosjean is not thrilled:

"Personally, I'm not convinced [that's a good idea]."

"I don't want to judge too soon because it's always good to try things out, but if you calculate a little bit - it turns out that each car can only get 175 meters of track."

"It doesn't work if you need 1 second space for the slipstream in the current Formula 1."

Grosjean will give the track a chance, but fears it might be awkward:

“When you are last then you have to miss the Mercedes in front of you, but then the others will be behind you very soon. Once you miss everyone - Mercedes will be behind you again. ”

“We will sit in the drivers' association and discuss the proposal for Formula 1. I would prefer that we decided to drive the second race according to the standard configuration, but in the middle of the day and in the hottest weather. Then it's a completely different race than in the evening. "

    “When you are last then you have to miss the Mercedes in front of you, but then the others will be behind you very soon. Once you miss everyone - Mercedes will be behind you again. ”

    Although he speaks wisely here, I don't know why,

    and this

    "I don't want to judge too soon because it's always good to try things out, but if you calculate a little bit - it turns out that each car can only get 175 meters of track."

    touches, when it will probably fly out…. : mrgreen:

    BTW, how in Indycar 24 cars are loaded on some "oval" of some 1,5 km (eg Iowa Speedway 1,4 km)

    We are not thrilled with you either, so what;)
    Maybe that Bahrain turns out to be good considering that Lewis will have to pass you at least 4 times for a lap, there will be a chance that you will touch: p
