Reflecting on Round 3 from a Mechanic’s Perspective


 

Good morning, everyone!  Shun has already submitted his qualifying day report, so let me share it with you!

Give him a little limelight in the live web-cast and before you know it…

It is super hot here at the Autopolis…

Some rumors have it that the road got over 50℃, others say otherwise….  (>.<)

As for the qualifying results, we got

16th

but one of the cars in front of us lost their grid position so

for the finals we’ll start in

Role 15!

Hmmmmmmmmmm…  That 80kg handicap sure is going to be tough!

On top of that, it’s much hotter than we anticipated, so the tires we brought aren’t working like we’d hoped.

But our plan for the finals is to climb up whatever the cost and finish ahead so everything is just fine!?  Or so it would seem…

Now let’s get to the mechanic side of things.

Here we are at Autopolis!

The pit road traffic direction is the opposite of every other circuit!

So in other words, though the fuel cap is usually on the right side of the car, this time it will be on the left side.
