I prefer a balance between attack and defense, besides overtaking skills, defending skills is also important for racing drivers, too.

But what track is the most suitable to held this race if we want to plan to organise this one? Macau? Pau? Or others?
Excellent idea. Macau's Circuito da Guia would fit the idea perfectly. You'd need a track for men!

Track for men? What does that actually mean? Macau has little or no opportunity for overtaking and is a bore fest.

It's a challenge though and the front stretch does allow overtaking to happen. Of course the Tin Top race there has been going on a long time, so I think it's important we keep tradition of going there. Seeing cars go between the walls is a spectacle in itself

Plus I reckon the likes of Jessica Backmann or Michela Cerruti would definitely handle the track better than the rest of us “men”

Let me explain you. Do you know what is a Tilke's track? Macau is the opposite.

So a Tilke track is one with overtaking opportunities and doesn't tend to destroy the entire field due to a single mistake?

Tilke's circuits also can be very bland. Macau isn't the worst circuit in the world. OK it's the only circuit with a hairpin so tight they need a permanent yellow flag, but it's also got a front stretch which allows overtaking to happen

Wrong answer. And you know it. Some people are in such utter darkness that they will burn you just to see a light. Try not to take it personally.

I've read a couple of responses, but still not understanding why so will ask again.

What makes something a 'track for men'?

I believe that Jessica's coach is Josh Files and he rates her highly especially on tight, technical circuits. A very good driver and would go well at Macau.

I still do not rate Macau personally but I do not rate Monaco either for the same reasons. Both are great social events though having been to both many times.

I do see what Juntos means, a track like Macau requires a fearless and faultless driver but a term like “a track for men” is a bit old money nowadays. Macau has been a long-term favourite of mine, especially as a season finale because it does usually create a spectacle or controversy in some way (usually heartbreaking as an Alfa fan between 2005 & 2007) but modern racing cars seem to have outgrown it in the last 10 years or so.

Her coach might rate her highly but from my viewing point i think the panel beaters rate her the most highly!

You do not make omelettes without breaking a few eggs...

Every top driver has a history of crashes in the early stages of their career...it is part of their learning curve. look at Verstappen...even Tarquini still has his share of crashes...

Tarquini has his share of crashes even now

BTW everyone will rate their students great in public, especially if they pay you, but in my opinion Jessica is mid tier driver at best, Andreas is much better then she is.

Also about tracks, i would love them to see on some short track like Donington national, or Nurburgring Sprint, maybe even Brands Hatch either Indy or GP.

I am not so sure about Sepang, Monza or Hungaroring. Hungaroring last year was interesting because there was rain, but if there is no rain, it becomes sleep fest. Also Monza races last year were so interesting. Race 1 Peugeot who has it's BoP so overpowered dominated, and Race 2 Files and Peugeot's dominated again.
