It’s not even really an Indycar thing, the current cameras in Indycar are actually cameras that were developed for NASCAR and later used in Grand-Am as well.31st October 2013, 16:33 at 4:33 pm #244111
I don’t see a shorter season resulting in layoffs, in fact I see them keeping or needing more staff during the season because they’ll have less turn-around time between races to get the cars prepped.
As far as the schedule goes, the long off-season is being used to give teams the time to prep for a longer more diverse 2015 season that may even see the return of international touring for the series.29th October 2013, 2:48 at 2:48 am #244048
What exactly happens with the FIA fine money? I know a few years ago NASCAR started taking their fine money (which had at the time just been placed into the end of the year points fund for the series the fine came from) and putting it towards the NASCAR Foundation which then distributes it to various charitable organizations.22nd October 2013, 1:10 at 1:10 am #243714
The initial contact just looked like hard racing, nothing wrong with that. The contact after-the-fact, am I the only one that thinks it didn’t mean to hit him & that he actually meant to just kind of speed off infront of him making him come to a stop but he just misjudged it by a few feet?18th October 2013, 5:46 at 5:46 am #243266
If this happened in July (as the images and article state) why is it just being made public by Nico (well his handlers) now and why was there no mention of it at all (atleast that I remember) during the German GP?
If it was legit stolen in July then that helmet has been sold the most it’s going to be sold and is now sitting in somebodies collection who likely knows it’s stolen and don’t care.15th October 2013, 8:10 at 8:10 am #243122
As I just said in a comment a day or so ago, there has been way to many injures & deaths in the motorsports world this season, yet for the most part they’ve all been freak accidents that “more safety” might not have necessarily prevented.9th October 2013, 8:25 at 8:25 am #242886
Which is a stupid rule IMHO.9th October 2013, 3:10 at 3:10 am #242832
At the same time with Hamilton behind if for some reason his nose would break in the same way before they got back to pit in then they could call him in too and do a double (but costly time wise) stop.8th October 2013, 20:09 at 8:09 pm #242829
That’s actually a really good point, rather have him skid off track infront of Lewis instead of skidding off track into Lewis.7th October 2013, 19:37 at 7:37 pm #242623
The rear wheel bumper had nothing to do with this crash, Dario launched after his wheel touched the sidepod of Sato not the rear bumper thing.7th October 2013, 18:37 at 6:37 pm #242847
Hasn’t Bild been wrong about a lot of their rumors lately though?7th October 2013, 17:15 at 5:15 pm #242803
I’m fine with the sponsors branding being incorporated into the trophy as afterall they are the ones that are paying for the race to be put on. However I do agree that the trophy itself should be more then just the companies logo.7th October 2013, 17:06 at 5:06 pm #242616
The car was launched because Darios front tire made contact with the sidepod of Sato. That is nothing that the rear nerf-bars or the extended front floor can prevent and it even happens in full-fendered full-bodied cars as Clint Bowyer demonstrated in 2011.7th October 2013, 6:25 at 6:25 am #242797
Imagine the Chinese GP trophy being a Panda version of that haha.7th October 2013, 4:44 at 4:44 am #242795
That one from Hungary this year looks like something you would put a dead persons ashes in haha.
I think F1 needs to spice it up with some unique trophies like these.
