    ".. no big busses.." erm... are you thinking what I'm thinking? XD police car, tourist bus... ring a bell? Btw, after a lap (say when the parking lot is opened again) would it be advisable to go drive around for a few minutes before parking the car straight away, in order to cool down the brakes better? Last time I went to Hockenheimring TF, afterward my brakes become "uneven" or sth like that, since then it vibrates a little bit almost everytime I brake. Would driving around after a lap prevent this problem? (ofc except the obvious solution, upgrade better brake disc)

    I think the most important thing is to remember that you're not 16 years old any more, and that hormones can kill. Adrenaline is good, but too much testosterone will really screw things up. It's not a driving sim; it doesn't matter that you're not getting cool footage for GRbuild; it's not a moronic 'drifting' video; it doesn't matter that you're not king of the castle or top of the heap. There will always be someone faster than you. ALWAYS. So relax. When other guys pass you, it doesn't matter. Nobody's laughing at you. If you're not Number One, it doesn't matter. If you're just driving an ordinary road car, it doesn't matter. It's not a race. And it's not a Merkin-style drag race, either - something for social inadequates with unresolved size, power and performance issues best dealt with by a sexual psychiatrist. Just savour the driving. Belting down an unrestricted Autobahn is boring. Sustained high speed is no biggie, and no challenge, either. The Nürburgring's different. Special. Enjoy the moments when a pro driver overtakes you at 170 mph. Watch his line through the next corner. Raise an eyebrow. Smile. You've got absolutely nothing to prove. The fact that you're out on the circuit, driving, and not sitting at home in an armchair shouting 'expert' advice at a screen is enough. Have fun. (And maybe some pancakes.)

    Not to complain about your off season content, Misha, but this is the stuff your subscribers signed up for. Great video. I think your channel cultivates a feel and appreciation for the laid back attitude of the real car enthusiasts community. If it were for appreciating and respecting each other, not trying too hard and having fun with the right mindset, there would be drastically less accidents.

    When a car passes you, check before continuing back to your preferred line, as the car might have another car right behind it. Or even multiple cars. Seems obvious, but it’s actually tricky sometimes, to suddenly need to drive off line at speed.

    The insurance seems to be the most important thing. Because if you overtake on the right or don't respect a rule you can be banned. But imagine if by your oil or coolant you make crash a Performante....or an Enzo ....or a Zonda.... or maybe all 3 and you are not covered......could be a real financial disaster (Gates, Besos, Musk and friends are not involved on this matter 😂)

    Hey Misha, I've always wondered what dictates whether the Nordschleife or combined layout is used during TF? More simply, is there a way to find out in advance which is being used so I can drive a combined layout or is it luck?
