Heh. Since the official thread is busy with the bottom end of the field, what about the top end?
We've gotten used Fringe being the epitome of mechanical competence, but on Saturday, Bissa had multiple mechanical failures on the same roll. They got it fixed for Sunday, but then uncharacteristically lost a minor hatch. Just a run of bad luck? Or has the rush to finish the the new buggy distracted them from their usual strengths, and will it affect them on raceday?
With the wet roads, nobody was going fast on Sunday. It seemed clear who was in touch with their buggy and who wasn't. Almost everyone turned in too quick on their first roll before correcting - slippery road? or did going much slower than the day before throw off their sense of timing? Will this day of anti-practice have an effect when the time comes to go fast again?
Normally, understeer is hidden, but it looked like some teams (PiKA, SigEp) needed more of their steering range than normal to get around the course on Sunday.
