That was a very cool day. Laguna Seca in an IndyCar! It is something pretty special, isn't it? 😍

  • Romain, what can you say about the car? Is it fun to drive. I know it's much slower than f1 but i thing racing in indy is awsom.

  • It amazes me how all the drivers leave the pits and just punch it. No warming up. No getting used to it, Grosjean just nails the throttle right out of the pits and off into a blind corner. Skills and guts.

  • Salut Romain, super de te voir limer ce circuit fantastique. Tu vas renforcer notre frenchie’s team en Indycar et je te souhaite de réussir dans cette série qui est faite pour un pilote aussi doué que toi.

  • Romain, gr8 2 👀👀 what its like steering the office around. Indy cars from my limited knowledge r faster than an f1 car on an oval track. Am l on the $money with that statement? But not as quick on a normal style f1 track. How have u found the transition between the 2. Wouldn't mind 👀👀 Indy cars around Melbournes f1 track or Bathurst. Enjoy ur yr 2021

You will do great and know that you have a ton of fans in IndyCar as well. Great FRlift post and we will see you out there.

  • So glad you are recovering from that horrific accident in Bahrain, welcome aboard, my best to you and your family. Now let's talk business. Respectfully, any amateur sim-racer who had never seen Laguna Seca before in their life and spent 3 hours on a sim would have looked more at home than you did here. So I'm assuming you didn't spend at lest triple that on a 5-Star sim before practice day. You better, before every track you don't know. Learn them like the hallway from your bedroom to your kitchen, or the competition in INDYCAR is going to use you like a tampon. You are better than that, and good luck!

  • I was introduced to Laguna Seca in Gran Turismo on the Sony Playstation 1 in the late 1990s and have loved that track since. The difficult speed changes and the breathtaking elevation drops in the corkscrew are things of legend. I'd give my nuts to drive a few hot laps at Laguna Seca in real life.

I've seen it many times from cameras situated on MotoGP & Superbikes, and the corkscrew always makes me feel like I've left my stomach at the top - and that's just from the camera's POV! I've seen it from car cameras, but never from that perspective! Have a terrific season, enjoy those "old-fashioned" tracks along with the updated ones, and most of all, stay safe!

    ًًIl y a mois
    • he would be just fine. These cars pull less G force then a F1 car since the downforce level on the Indycar is much lower. Even an Indycar for most normal people not used to the G force it would prob push them to a point where it would effect their vision.

    • I think we all wish that. Maybe 2022 we will start to see the cars moving around a little more with the lose of downforce that they will have. I cant wait till Indycar car lets them get more HP out of these motors because that will make the cars even more of a monster to keep control of

  • Wow Mr. Grosjean, at 1:47, you slipped through the most feared part of the track like it was a lazy afternoon drive in Switzerland! I've seen winners of the race here crash at this exact place several times. It is like Eau Rouge. It LOOKS like a simple series of bends but the drastic drop in elevation always catches at least ONE person out during the race! Tragically, it has claimed a few lives. The last was Gonzalo Rodriguez, who died during the GP of Laguna Seca at Penske several years ago.

  • Well, about this sim… 1) Too much sun glare 2) Head shaking is exagerated 3) Curbs are too permissive, feels unrealistic 4) Car is way too stuck on the ground; should slide more. Not realistic. 5) Graphics engine is dated. 6) Sound is inaccurate; lacks both bass and highs. Overall 6/10. Only mildly better than Project Cars 3.
