I wasn't pointing fingers, Enrique. You've had two tough weeks, for sure. And that was what I was trying to note: Here it's easy to go from, in Frank Sinatra's words, flying high in April to shot down in May. Monaco and Sachsenring are daggers pointing at the very heart of the philosophy of this league, that being if you don't take care of your cars, you're finished. Our 63 coins three weeks ago was in the middle of the pack; today only one team has more than that --- Smokey, of course --- but when they finish repairing their Lotus, they'll be down to 69. I repeat: that's the biggest treasury in the league. But that's what Monaco and Sachsenring have done, and the latter isn't through with us yet.

Maybe an idea for next season to have different tracks for D2 in place of certain difficult tracks.

Um, might you be inclined to change your mind, Rob, if I were to tell you that so far this year the average D2 driver pays 1.9 coins each race to fix car damage while the median in D1 is 5.8 coins per driver per race?  :)

+ 6.18 x 1014. Monaco and Sachsenring have destroyed our team's treasury. Three weeks ago we had 63 coins, a Ferrari, and a Brabham. Today, with another round of Sachsenring still to be faced, we have 21 coins, a BRM, and a Cooper.

The ovals are like the practice of anesthesiology: 99% boredom and 1% panic, and it's that 1% of the time that really separates the sheep from the goats.

Unfinished business at Brno, you say? So do 15 of the 32 drivers who showed up on the starting grids last year.  :)

Bpb, 75% of 22 laps looks like 17 laps (16.5). At 3:10/lap, that will take you about 54 minutes. If you can manage that minimum, be sure you've got the pit stop patch installed and ready to use. Then you can come into the pit, get gas, and wait for the carnage to end. If you park it while you're 10th overall, you'll probably be 4th when the checkered flag waves.

In the last week I don't think I've done more than 11 laps without finding something to hit, usually hard enough to loosen up some teeth. :)

If we go for an oval I nominate Gateway

Just as we're required not to have a fantasy track, I thought we were required to have an oval. Last year it was P.I.R. Before that it was Syracuse, a sort of oval on LSD. Three years ago it was the King of Ovals, Daytona. I personally would vote for any oval, even Bristol, before I'd voluntarily return to a scorpion's nest like Brno, Bremgarten, or Turin.  :)
