That driver would be me
As Bluesman says, it is a great track to drive. The first half is like Monaco but as you progress through the lap the pace builds so its like 1st/2nd for a while then 2nd/3rd then 3rd/4th and then 4th/5th as you climb back up through the lethal St Jordi uphill left hander back to the start/finish. Then just as you leap off the top of the hill its hard braking into the downhill hairpin El Angulo that is T1. It's a challenge alright and there isnt much opportunity for overtaking but you'll be too busy trying to stay out of the armco to worry about that
With a bit of practice you should be hitting lap times around 1:25.5 in the 69's
