I think there will only be one line through T1. Loudon has something similar, but nobody shoots up the inside because they can't really carry the speed through the apex. If they did, it would make a mess of things, though.

It sure does look odd. Must have something to do with making a pit out that doesn't put them in the racing line at one of the fastest places on the track. I would guess pit out requires them to hug the inside until they make that hairpin. Seems like they could have had it follow the inside on seperate pavement like Laguna.

That doesn't explain the same configuration at T11, though.

We should put Krop on the case.
