On the other hand, the offset is that now cars have fixed gearing you rarely get the situation where the chasing car reaches their top speed and stops catching before the end of the DRS zone- now DRS is an advantage for longer.
Tradition, business, the impact of ruining the sport for millions of fans who appreciate a team competition with development, making thousands unemployed and the companies that currently employ them collapsing.
Thanks for such a comprehensive answer. Although it’s great to hear such impressive power figures, it’s a shame that they can be fairly meaningless if it only translates to being usable a couple of times a lap. Same story with the F1 cars, for which I assume even the quoted ICE figures only apply to when the car hits the redline- which it doesn’t at present.
How much of the power is usable according to the regulations? Aren’t there limits about either how much they can generate or use? I’m curious about how often any of these cars are actually able to hit their peak figure.
8 months sounds like a lot for a prank, but crimes committed in cars seem to be heavily penalised, and although he wasn’t on a public road, he was nevertheless endangering others with a car, which is pretty serious.
