Gilles is the real deal, a Motorhead to the Max, who just happens to be the head of Design for ALL of Fiat/Chrysler , Worldwide. His love of racing is as intense as any of us, and it is the place he can relax and hang with like minded drivers. The cool thing is he is a quality pilot and one who can wheel a machine around a circuit with aplomb!!

This is what I mean...Later apexes in the series will let you finish with a bigger arc for the last turn and carry more speed. Arrows indicate the turn-in point. Green for the late apex setup, and red shows where I think you are in your video. Placement of the arcs assumes the same amount of track-out on the exit curb. The straight lines are the tangential approach lines and notice the difference in angle. And that the larger arc shows an earlier turn-in point. The two cars in the googlemaps screen shot almost exemplify the different apex points and helped me locate the centerlines for the arcs.
