DRIVER VIEW from Indianapolis

RALF SCHUMACHER (TOYOTA): "I like the circuit as it has a good rhythm and good overtaking opportunities on the long straight, the corner entering the oval section is also a particularly good place to attack.
"Power is crucial, especially for the long straight, while you also need a lot of downforce for the corners of the infield section. Finding the perfect set-up is often really difficult as you need to find the best compromise to handle the track's varying characteristics."

 

CHARACTERISTICS from Indianapolis

The famous 'Brickyard' circuit is essentially two circuits in one, with a very high speed banked section and a low speed twisting infield.
