Last weekend I drove the Ardennes Luik/Liège-Luxembourg motorway and just seeing the names of the exits gives you Goosebumps:

Stavelot
Spa-Francorchamps
Malmédy (old circuit)

The Masta Kink was apparently more dangerous than Eau Rouge

Drove back home via Liège , and was caught by a f@cking speedcam !

So...For the moment I'm afraid to open my mailbox....

Mercedes has a PU upgrade.

Dry I'm going HAM-VET-VER-LEC-BOT.
Wet I'm going HAM-VER-LEC-BOT-VET

Sectors 1 and 3 favor the Fezza. Sector 2 favors the Merc and RB. Detailed in relative strength I'd go:

Sector 1: Fezza and AMG
Sector 2: AMG and RB
Sector 3: Fezza and AMG

Lap time: Who knows?!?!!
