On the turn before Lost Hill and the turn after the Esses, it looks like the driver could have taken at WOT but he held back just a little. I believe his time could definitely be improved by a full second.
Now the time attack record is held by the HKS CT230 Evo driven by Taniguchi putting up a 1:43. I can't wait to see the record broken again. This is a healthy competition and should boost up the tuner market here in the USA. If anybody looking for a time attack driver, I am available. I know Buttonwillow pretty well and did a respectable 2:03 with my 300hp mildly modified S14 on Falken Azenis RT-615.

Drift Angle Competition at Tsukuba last turn. This is pretty interesting too going for max angle while still maintaining a good drift.

Kimi Raikkonen has played down his fellow F1 drivers' concerns that the ban on traction control will make the sport more dangerous, particularly on a wet track."This sport is dangerous anyway," the Finn, nicknamed within the sport as 'the iceman', said at the launch of Ferrari's new car for 2008, the F2008, in northern Italy on Sunday."You can have a big accident whether you've got traction control or not. It will make driving in the wet a bit trickier, but if you think it's too dangerous then you shouldn't be in the car at all," Raikkonen said.The 2007 world champion was asked about the issue after a group of drivers - including Brazilian team-mate Felipe Massa - pushed for talks with the FIA about having input into how wet races are handled this year and beyond.
But rather than worry about driving without traction control, Raikkonen said the ban on driver aids makes Grand Prix cars more fun."For me it's a bit more enjoyable because you can get the car sideways, and it may help with overtaking because people will probably be making more mistakes," he said."It is more tricky for sure, you need to be awake more of the time," Raikkonen added.
That's exactly what I would say! Just like how people always complain and ask dumb questions at the Formula D drivers meeting. Quit the whinning and just go drive balls out!!!!
