What, they changed the layout? The second last turn is the classic sweeper, or what?

MotoGP used the classic sweeper last season, but they didn't use it in testing so I would have to assume the chicane is still in?

- The kerbs on the apex of Turns 5 and 7 have been lowered and new concrete verges installed behind them. Additional kerb elements have been installed behind the initial kerbs.
- The grass verge on the drivers’ left between the exit kerbs of turns 15 and 16 has been replaced by concrete.

Note: These changes were implemented before pre-season testing.

I just miss the LULs that Maldonado provided. Thought I would pay him tribute at the anniversary of his only F1 win. :haha:

I think this is the first that I've actually been on top in the standings. And apparently it's Round 2 in the accuracy championship for me and @Picci this year. :wink:

Thanks again for running this, @XcraigX - you're doing one heck'uva job.
