GP4 Onboard Lap - Nico Rosberg - Circuito do Algarve - 2011
Nico Rosberg, aka Mathieu Brière, put his wheels at Circuito do Algarve at Portimão, Portugal, for a very private session these days. Here his first impressions of the new GP4 venue:
"Great fun ! Many 1st gear turns, but all different to each other, so they're very challenging. Challenging is how I'd describe this track best".
"While some corners look easy on map, they need a different approach due to the previous corner. The best example are turns 11 & 12. You have to turn in late and slow down just enough for the second apex, which then becomes quicker than one would think".
"Track seems very accurate. From the hills inside the track to the buildings, every detail is shown with outstanding accuracy. Just watch an A1GP onboard and you'll see!".
Thanks Mathieu, oops... Mr. Rosberg.
P.S.: Track project is still WIP. Further development will be achieved to last version at proper time.
