Collision > Accident[edit]

Regarding the recent repeated edits to this page by an anonymous IP address (220.221.17.213 & 222.225.117.108) - the F1 results at www.formula1.com use 'collision', 'spun off' etc, which are more specific and informative. Assuming good faith on the part the anonymous editor - please state your reasons for continuously altering the results here from those at the official site. The changes have been reported, reluctantly, as apparent vandalism. As always - glad to talk: --4u1e 15:02, 22 October 2006 (UTC)

The Tyrrell 019 did not appear at this race[edit]

This section of the article is incorrect:

Tyrrell had another surprise for the first race of the season. Their new car, the 018 -- designed by Harvey Postlethwaite, was the first in F1 to sport a "high-nose" design with downward-extending supports for the front wing.

The Tyrrell 018 was used for this race, as well as the following event (1990 Brazilian GP); but the high-nosed Tyrrell 019 didn't appear until the San Marino GP. It wasn't a backup/spare/T-car at either of the preceding events, according to Autocourse 1990-91. Since it was a historically significant F1 car, as it was the first "high-nosed" Grand Prix car in modern times, this should be removed from the article, and clarified as such.

The circuit map is incorrect[edit]

The circuit layout map that is posted for the 1990 United States Grand Prix is incorrect. Turns 2, 3, 4, and 13 are incorrect. Also, there were officially no turns 14 and 15. I've prepared a corrected map and posted it here: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:TrackMap.jpg According to the broadcast commentators of this event the circuit officially had 13 turns, but that they considered the final turn 13 to be a double apex turn, thus bringing 'their' unofficial turn count to 14.

Also, the start finish line was located on the eastern side of the race control bulding which was located at the pit road exit. On the North-east corner of the intersection of Jefferson Street and 4th Avenue.

I would like to authors to consider a change to the posted track map.
