I want refueling back. Not sure as to retaining the fuel use limits though. I can see keeping the fuel flow limits but not necessarily the overall limit.

 

They need to get two tire manu's back in at least. Then let the teams do what they want with them. We have seen how much difference tire selection can make in a race so let them have at it.

More news from Mac. I think they are starting to damage control Ronbo. Although "The car is easier to drive" has a hint of his flavour. I guess Button didn't get that memo in Spain.

So Hamilton finally signs the deal. Now all the musical seats rumours can really start flying.

Alonso basically regurgitating what the Austrailian press put out there a while ago. Dead on though. I mean when your feeder series starts threatening your lap times you should figure you need to make some progress.

 

 What nags at my mind is the whole thing with drivers not old enough to shave. If the cars return to 8 sec a lap (or better) faster times, the whole "child driver" project may turn into a disaster.

In theory they would have most to gain as reflexes go and also the feel of immortality go off with age too as you get some sense.

But at least there won't be anymore of drivers jumping from GP3 straight into F1.

post #1850 of 1860

I guess there will be more straight from gokart to F1. Gokart is all about reflexes if the superkarts in PCars is to go by. I have never driven a gokart lol

Have had the chance to drive both, top-of-the line 125cc gokarts are much harder to drive than entry-level single seaters.

Pretty much worked for Raikkonen;)

 

It's a stamina thing. If F1 goes back to being a mental and physical drain as it used to then you wont see type jumping. Huge difference from a 30 lap gp2,3 whatever race to a full length grand prix.

post #1853 of 1860

Yeah as an endurance racer it should be physical. 

 

I mean just the brake force required at least used to be insane. Some 135 kg for F1 I think I have seen. Don´t know what year I guess it´s less now with all the electronical aids and all  but of course they are helped greatly by G-forces to sustain it but still. My simulator brake pedals can go up to 135 kg to get there I have to stand push against my cockpit and chair and press until I am blue in the face. everything flexes, racing certified seat, steel cockpit, spine, abs is cramping like crazy :D Then I can just about get there lol.

You could read this:

and compare it to Kart racing.

What that lacks is the effect of no suspension on the human body. A supercart is absolutely brutal at speed. Shaking has some really non beneficial effects on the body, so much so that in some countries it was used as a method of torture, and quite successfully at that.

 

 You have my curiosity piqued now. I wonder what shape someone would be in after a 2 hour cart competition?

 

Then again, the answer to that would probably be akin to the ground effects era of the 80's:D

post #1857 of 1860

Yeah a lot of drivers careers have been ruined by the karts for that reason.

I've read a quote of Schumacher stating that 45 minutes in a 40hp gokart was comparable to a GP in Malaysia.

 

Also, one has to remind that gokarts don't have seatbelts (Superkarts do). The strain it puts on the driver's arms is terrible.

Ouch. I can feel it all the way over here.

 

 

Wonder if Lew had an imbecile rider in the new contract. You know, for every point taken from me directly by the teams incompetence you owe me a hundred grand.

 

I would have loved to hear Vettels radio when they told him Hamilton was pitting.
