To me turn 1 is not a substitute for "Abbey" and Turn 15 is definitely not a suitable substitute for the mighty "Stowe" corner and the thrilling "Maggotts, Becketts, Chapel" can have no substitute. Or am I the only bloke who can't remember which bloody corner turn x is? Names are so much easier to remember and apart from that aspect names incite passion and excitement so much more than boring bloody numbers. Anyone agree? or are numbers better in this digital age? Hopefully I'll get some sane responses.
BTW, this subject came about as turn 1 will apparently be a DRS open corner and I had to mentally figure out which corner it was, it's Abbey which was flat-out and the DRS will be deactivated after Farm into Village which will be quite interesting to watch in FP and particularly qually as it will mean a faster lap. In race trim when following, sadly they will probably have to close the DRS into Abbey.
OK, I'll put my soap box away now and watch free practice.
