They have made the brakes to good & a little to much downforce resulting in very short braking distances, they were hardly touching the brakes into turn one, overtaking is gonna be so tough on road & street courses & the downforce is only gonna increase over the next couple of years. Need to make the stock brakes worse & increace the Horse Power. The noise of the cars took me back to the mid-80's Formula one race tho, i could of closed my eyes & imagined Senna in a JPS lotus & Mansell in a Williams Honda all over again..

The cars are really growing on me, love the sound of the V6 too. They look much better than most of the F1 grid.

I wonder if Rubens will fair better than Sato has during his IndyCar career? Sato's spent most of his time in the walls, but kept clean in the first race.

Can't wait for Barber.
