The new Arena course was originally designed for MotoGP, after Silverstone lost the F1 to Donington. However, with the demise of Donington, the F1 has returned to Silverstone.
We'll see this weekend, with the GT1 cars, to give us an idea of what it's like.

I am so tired of these commentary from people who just have nothing but criticism...esp. the "never won a GP" F1 drivers who are so quick to point fingers at Schumacher for attempting a return to F1 at 41 years old. The new layout looks great and Silverstone is still on the calendar....Just shut your hole and enjoy a great and competitive season in F1. :rolleyes:

Indeed, the new section won't help overtaking in F1 despite not destroying the flow of a Silverstone lap, you'll still need to try your luck at Copse, Stowe or Club...

@CDF 50cent obviously does not like me. He posted a couple of attacks on rob01 yesterday or the day before and I told him he should remove them, So he obviously does not like me. Oh well, cant win them all!

@50cent, Cmon bro it was uncalled for. If thats how you operate "bring it on". After reading your posts I dont think I have much of a mental battle ahead of me. :)
