This tour of the Tuscan Grand Prix track by George Russell is delightful


The Tuscan Grand Prix will be racing on Sunday, Ferrari’s 1,000th Grand Prix and the Formula 1 Grand Prix for the first time in the Mugello circuit. The track has already proved popular with drivers, including George Russell, who took a spin round to give us a delightful tour about driver strategy.

The “best” corner of the circuit is either six or seven; It is a bit unclear. But what is clear is that Russell loves that stretch of track the most (be sure to walk along the minimap on the bottom right.) And you can see why: the pace.

“It will be flat out on Saturday,” says Russell.

My favorite detail is when Russell instructs viewers to keep an eye on the trackside flag to detect wind direction and speed – something that I believe drivers don’t do every race in an actual race, given that There are a lot of other things going on. But this is something that I imagine they all do to be qualified, when they are just trying to walk at a fast pace.

My other favorite part is watching him interact with Understaker and Overstair in the final turn, before he exits Fir Flat again. I do not know what to do on Sunday. Although drivers say they love Mugello for speed, they have also said that it can be difficult to get ahead because the track is quite thin and the corners are all a bit faster, which will make all the more important. Keep an eye on those flags, accompaniments.
