8:36 am
too much speed before the center of the corner, it messes up the center and the exit. so all of those little things, i know it looks like cars going around in a circle, but i promise you it's not. a lot more going on than having the car driving the way that and what his car will give yo and you can't just drive the car the way you want to drive it all the time. you have to drive what the car will give you technique in itself. and one thing and then the next lap your car gets tighter and it doesn't turn well, you have to adjust to that as a driver. there's a lot going on in the cockpit. >> we're looking forward to the race and thank you for giving us so much to look forward to with the race today. >> there's so much on the line and the championship means so much to everybody.
