Chog, “lunch control” Red Bull racing were using the anti stall map to duplicate/memorize a racing start/lunch control, they were also using the off throttle mapping to effect traction control.

sunny. ghog was having a joke with you. " lunch" control is more like delaying you midday snack!
by the way, can you explain the launch control that Ferrari are using this year? their starts defy description so they must be cheating! :D :D

Richard, FERRARI was the first to have started using the now common to all twin clutch paddles and so I expect them to be the most refined using this very simple but interesting system, I also believe that they are the only team using a three plate clutch as against a twin plate.

Mrfill, the technical article you quoted is technically correct, these people (two) you quoted knows firsthand what they are talking about. But there is a big if, if they (Pirelli) change the tyre construction all they said that will need to be changed is spot on, but we will have to wait and see if they will change or not the tyre construction, this because a tyre can be drastically changed without changing its construction. As I said yesterday, Pirelli supplied this year's tyres to all teams to sample last year in Brazil, and now I will add to that, Pirelli also supplies a sixty percent scale tyres and also what is called a (PACEJKA MODEL) of the physical properties of the tyres to all teams this to accurately simulate the tyres in their wind tunnels. All this exposes how wrong Mercedes and RBR managed to GET IT THIS TIME, or put in another way, IT'S THEIR DESIGN AND NOT THE TYRES which others are using and racing flat out on them

sunny. I doubt that fia would sanction a change of construction as basically all cars would then have to be redesigned. it is not the construction that is the problem, but the compounds which are too affected by the heat.
as for merc and red bull being bad designs, have a look at the results. rbr are leading wdc and wcc. and when they on two races, people were moaning that the tyres were giving them an advantage.......! as for merc, they have been all at sea for the last 3+ years. their is a problem with their basic design that cannot be blamed on the tyres.

I was only ragging you about Ferrari launch control, but thanks for the info anyway.

its pretty obvious to anyone that Ferrari have the strongest motor out there. Top speed and outright acceleration w/ KERS is much better than Merc or RBR. Although Sebastian had a very quick motor last year, you could see him destroying Hamilton down the straight at COTA.

Richard, yes, correct, Mercedes have had this problem for the last three years and RBR only seems to have got it wrong just this year.
I too don't believe that Pirelli will change the construction of the tyres.
