So, turns out ( I reckon ), if you don’t want your radio broadcast ending up on TV, so the whole world, and the pitlane knowing about your KERS not working.. then SWEAR all the ****ing time.
Chances are, they wont release the broadcast to transmission thus given you that layer of secrecy that wont end up in embarrassment..
“Felipe, Fernanda is a ****ing sight *****y faster than you”..
Ha! Brilliant idea Hare. Beats all this phase 1, phase 2, plan a, plan b nonsense. Because it didn’t take long for people to work it out.
As the radio messages are delayed, couldn’t they just bleep them out though?
well in theory.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-zEnO_KwDg
Haha, that’s a nice theory, but I imagine the teams will have people directly intercepting their rivals’ radio messages directly, so it would be pretty futile
All messages sent between team and driver are time-delayed. FOM would have more than enough time to bleep swearing out.
Thought so PM. That’s what it sounded like on Sunday from what the BBC were saying.
They’ve got it nailed in the WRC, they turn the air blue all the time. So would I if my person was subject to being thrown down the occasional ravine.
F1 doesn’t really have a swear bleeper person. As iamsa8 pointed out.
Here’s a few examples:
Webber says the F word
Button imitates Webber
Just make the swearword the code!
Butons reaction still cracks me up 2 years later.
Would it stop Vettel.
Interview with Lee Mackenzie of F1 Forum,
Blah blah blah, can I say this? … “Arsenal* (football club)” :L….blah blah blah.
What a great champion to have for the sport, he always has these comedy moments, like last weeks cake in the face for DC, and laxative chocolates this week. Whatever next Seb?
*coded message for something very similar…
You say all communication is time-delayed, but how much of a delay are you talking about? 2 seconds?
1/2 to 1 minute of delay. It’s just the time to put all the beeps on the swears.
Actually, as Icthyes said, they could make the swearwords the code. Imagine a radio message like this: bip bip bip bip bip bip bip bbiipp bbbbiiiiippppppp.
It could almost be rhyming slang.
“You need to arse that car”
“We need you to shit for tyres”
don’t teams approve what gets broadcast?
