What was the speed at the time of impact? Thought Kubica had the record.
I don’t agree, the V8 did nothing for DTM for example, they used V6 20 years ago which had a great sound. They spoiled it by focussing too much on aerodynamic. Looking at Supercars I still can see cool cars with great sound and close racing, even w/o an V8 engine.
Considering the limitations of engine development, where would this leave VW in the end? How many tokens would they be allowed to use?
I ever thought Lausitzring would have been a good venue for a race attended by 10,000s of Kubica fans, but those days are long gone now.
Would a female driver be allowed to race in a Saudi-Arabian GP?
that’s easy: it expired yesterday.
I can not imagine to see WEC cars on that track. LMP1 would be way too fast. But the GTEs would be nice to see. Currently there’s the 24h race going with McLarens MP4-12C on Pole and Audi R8, Mercedes SLS and BMW Z4 in Top10 positions. Not to forget some Porsches and Nissans.
And definetively not F1 cars.
Will the race at Berlin take place on the Tempelhof airfield?
Maybe a touring car series (silhouette) would have been a better start as those cars would have provided more space for the energy system. Formula E will be inferior to Formula 3 in all aspects.
Will there be a time limit for car changes?
That’s simply not impressing. Loud high rev engine noise combined with white clouds spring to my mind when thinking of donuts. But that car was struggeling to do proper donuts. Also the topspeed is reported to be only 225 km/h. I am not sure whether we will see spectacular races in Formula E.
I don’t agree on Thailand. Like Korea and India I wouldn’t expect big audience there. I also don’t get why they’re racing at Bahrain where just the royal family is attending the race. It’s not really a big market for the manufacturers.
I like gravel traps for the same reason I liked engines w/o rev limiters. Engine used to blow up, drivers got stuck, the race was over, chances for backmarkers to gain some points.
