“Really good balance on track.
It’s very nimble on change of direction, good in the front end in mediumslow speed corners. I think the tyre probably hurts it through the higher load, higher radius corners. The M3 is very much, you do two or three laps and take a breath and know you’ve worked to produce the time. You feel you can get to the limit of the Alfa and AMG much easier than in the BMW, it’s more on a knifeedge. The gearing was really perfect for the track, but its biggest weakness is its brakes; after two laps the pedal is all the way to the floor and you’re just not sure what it’s going to do.”
