The final chicane gathers 9 wear points, the corner 14/15 combination another 6.

Turn 14 summary:
Peeples maxes his acceleration to 120 and crosses the line to begin lap 2.
Miller spends one wear in the 60s at 80.
Burnett begins the 100mph charge through the 60s.
Kennard, Kennington and Brandt all follow the orange car, all four shedding two wear.

Schulz comes off the corner at 100.
Bauska is clear of corner 15 and, at 120, is now even with Schulz.
Brown's 120 move forces him through the 80 for two wear to have room to complete the move.

Baker is also at 120 but has room to run the line for two wear; he slots in behind Bauska.
Blizzard and Haskell both complete the 14/15 combination at 80 dropping one wear each.

Variante Bassa collects another six wear from four drivers.

Turn 15 summary:
Peeples is through Traguardo for the second time, shedding two wear in the 60s.
Miller is distracted at 140mph, not a good thing. (NPR1 Warning)
Kennard runs hard across the line at 160 to gain P3.
Burnett gets all his acceleration to 140 with a bonus to make it three wide approaching the chicane.

Kennington's engine builder throws his clipboard as he sees the telemetry indicating something is drastically wrong.
Brandt finishes the Variante at 100, wear already paid.
Schulz runs the 100s at 60 scrubbing off two wear.
Bauska follows at 80 for one wear.

Brown uses his inside advantage at 100 to take the 60s, dropping two wear.
Baker at 100 wanted the 60s but there's no exit from that line. He saves a wear by taking the 80s instead.
Blizzard approaches the final chicane at 100.
Haskell does likewise at 120.
