@dave Ok thanks for the update. I don’t understand why it has’nt been done before.
They move the seats like in DTM where they are almost sitting in the middle off the car. I think that has something to do with Frank Biela crashing in to a dutch racer (dont remember his name) in 1994…7th November 2011, 13:34 at 1:34 pm #184245
They should do some rear impact test, and try to improve their fuel cell safety.7th November 2011, 13:29 at 1:29 pm #184086
I think this is a viable lightweight alternative to normal roadcar rims. But are they actually lighter than carbonfiber or magnesium wheels?
Of course they will be cheaper, and appearently very durable. Thermoplastic-polymer composite is the exact same thing as Boeing uses for their new 787 Dreamliner. Probably not the exact same types, but still research in plastics as construction materials have been very good, and we now see the fruits. Who knows, it might find way to the smaller racing series such as Formula Ford or Formula 3.1st July 2011, 21:17 at 9:17 pm #172990
FIA Red Bull Formula One World Championship
Well that is not entirely impossible. If a title sponsor came along and was willing to put down enough money it could be called anything, much like “The IZOD Indycar series”, “Dunlop MSA British Formula Ford Championship” and “Cooper Tires British Formula 3 International Series”.
I’m sure that Bernie would be more than happy to cash that cheque.27th June 2011, 21:47 at 9:47 pm #171498
For all the people who say that Kubica is on their list: Go home!.
Every single person I have spoken to that has seen him drive in FR2000 and F3 say that his skill of handling the car, conditions, opponents and everything else, was sublime to everybody else. He has amazed very experienced people within the business, and thus I think he deserves a lot more credit than he gets!31st May 2011, 19:12 at 7:12 pm #165428
What about the ROC at the end of the season? That could be a nice one :D30th March 2011, 20:36 at 8:36 pm #164131
I know that you at some point in here in Denmark could get some kind of Japanese brand tires, that were blue and red, sot that you could make blue and red tiresmoke.30th March 2011, 20:23 at 8:23 pm #165528
@scribe, RIISE and others
I can not understand what it is that sets people off with Vettel. Yes he drives the fastest car, yes he gets pole most of the time. And people thrash him for this saying: “It’s too easy”, “try putting him in a slower car” etc..
I have never heard anyone doubt that Schumacher is a great driver, although he drove for 5 years in the best car and got pole an extreme amount of times.
Then there is the argument that Schumacher was very good at giving feedback to his engineers. Who knows how good Adrian Newey would be without Vettel? Who says that it is not the combination of these two, rather than only one of them, making Red Bull so invicible.
Also some argue that he is only fast because the team prefers him over Webber (Again people never used this as an argument against Schumacher). And so what? Is Vettel to blame for being preferred? Wouldn’t you like to be the one that the boss likes the best? Would people not tell you that securing a top spot in a big company would be a nice achievement?
Yes they would.
I do not say that Vettel is the greatest ever. Hamilton and Alonso are both great drivers, but I would like to see some new and better argument as to why he can not be considered to be in their league.12th March 2011, 10:55 at 10:55 am #163212
The best has to be from Cars. Rascall Flats – Life is a highway, and also the theme song, cant remember its name.10th March 2011, 21:20 at 9:20 pm #163044
As I understood from the interview with the guy from Cosworth on here, they were already in the process of designing and developing the engine for 2013. I think that it would be too late for McLaren to start now. If they want to break free from Mercedes, they have already taken the descision. It could be a nice way for them to go, but if they have not started yet (I bet you that they haven’t), there is simply not time for completing it properly for 2013. It would make good sense for them to use Mercedes power until 2015, and have their engine ready by 2016. This way they could use all the developement done by Mercedes and the other teams, to make their engine the best possible.26th February 2011, 21:55 at 9:55 pm #162216
Sounds very nice, let me know if you need an intern in about a year!21st February 2011, 0:04 at 12:04 am #161936
There can be no doubt about that McRae and Loeb are good racers, BUT they are rally drivers. We have seen how difficult it is to go from Formula 1 to Rally with Kimi Raikkonen. If I had to name one driver that could win the WDC this season and does not have a Formula 1 seat I would go for Tom Kristensen. He is simply not to be overlooked. I mean 7 wins at Le Mans he could have epic fights with Schumacher!16th February 2011, 14:51 at 2:51 pm #159632
(if only F1 races there were that exciting)
Even Bahrain 2010 was that exciting. (Sorry couldt resist it :P).
If you say this is the absolute pinnacle of MotoGP then sorry it will never ever make my boat float. I can simply not see where the excitement is placed.
There is no way a man with a slightly slower bike can hold up a guy who is faster and it is no real battle to get back in the lead if you are faster than in everyone else.15th February 2011, 18:59 at 6:59 pm #159629
@ MattHT finally someone joins me. Bike racing is pointless. An infinite amount of overtaking makes it infinitely boring to watch. Plus the bikes are so small on big tracks such as Abu Dhabi. It would only be fun if they ran on 2 meter narrow roads so the had some possibility to block each other.7th February 2011, 22:02 at 10:02 pm #159654
I quite like Newey, maybe because I like the way that he really starts out with looking at the regulations without prejudice, and then creates clever solutions around the rules.
This can be said about Brawn too, and that is why I think Newey has the upper hand here.
