F1 » Smedley: Closed F1 cockpits ‘very easy to implement’


Googolplex: Sunny, You are very passionate about this issue, but I think we have to accept it is in the nature of every F1 driver to always push the envelope even when double yellows are being waved. I think it would be interesting to know the speed every other driver went through that section after Sutil's accident before we start putting any blame on Jules.
googol. the speeds that were shown from the gps of the following cars were all in excess of 200 kph! there was no discernible slowing down of any car behind bianchi, ericcson was doing 220 (faster than bianchi), then along came chilton at 230 kph. next time around, chilton was doing 243 kph! so much for lifting off! bianchis speed at point of impact had reduced to 93 kph.

F1 » Smedley: Closed F1 cockpits ‘very easy to implement’


sodesu. unfortunately the drivers think that if they are 1 kph slower, that they have complied. and dont forget, earlier in the race when the road was nearly dry, their best time would have been maybe 50kph faster. and look at the figures i gave for chilton! he even speeded up after the accident! will he be penalised? no way! and as for other breaches of penalties...its not relevant to this thread, but lulu openly admitted that he kept his drs open. and i understood that it should have been closed at a specific point. penalt given? No! some could suggest an automatic sensor controlled speed limiter at a marshals post, but what happens if car 1,2 and 3 have a speed limiter activated, and then sensor is turned off by the time cars 4-22 come along? they would get an unfair advantage.

F1 » Dennis’ dig at Mercedes F1 engines


nutty. your comments actually defy belief! do you actually follow f1, or these threads? all merc teams get the exact same motor, despite all your assertions! and as for merc not telling macca how to set their injectors????? unbelievable! it is the correlation programmes to the electrical units that creates the problems. macca just have not sorted out their programming, and if they do, they will be on pace with merc.

F1 » Raikkonen: ‘Is it safe ever?’


Fullofit: Incorrect. Aquaplaning is when these cars effectively become boats riding on the planks under the floor instead of the tyres. The higher a car rides the less chance of that happening. It's also one of the key reasons that the full wet is a taller tyre.
aquaplaning is when the tyre cannot remove the water from between the tyre and the road, causing the tyres to ride up on the water and lose contact with the road. think speedboats...they go through the water until a speed is reached where the boat rides up on thew bow wave and starts skimming over the water. it happens when you hit puddles on the road, and if your tyres are worn, it happens at a lower speed due to non dispersal of water.

F1 » Bianchi 'critical but stable' after crash


sunny, what i find sad is some using such an event to try and blame / castigate everybody, without even checking rules and regs. really it is up to fia to investigate the sequence of events and to take any action that is deemed necessary. by the way. i saw a clip on a technical site of nurburgring in 2007, when nearly a dozen cars went off at one corner, when there were four bobcats trying to move cars. there was no outcry after that event, but it takes a serious injury to bring out all the "experts" who know the rules better than the drivers themselves.

F1 » Bianchi 'critical but stable' after crash


for those going on about the green flag, go and check the flag marshalling regs. the flags etc are dictated by central control. the cars are all fitted with flag indication displays, so to say that a driver might not have see the previous double yellows, does not hold water. and as for the flags in post 12, all the other drivers knew what they were for and acted accordingly. and in the unlikely event that a mistake was made by anybody, it would not have made even the slightest difference! the flag was AFTER the scene of the accident. close, yes, but after the scene. bianchi speared off the road well before the post 12. examination of speeds at that corner , where cars were still under double yellows from post 11, show that no car slowed down!

F1 » Bianchi 'critical but stable' after crash


107SS2009: The Marussia telemetry shows that bianchi “struck” the recovery vehicle at 203km/h, please not that it says “struck” I believe that when he lost control while still on track and before he crossed the run off aria he was travelling much faster than that. who can calculate at what speed down force will lose effectiveness in those conditions?
sunny. the 203 was at the point bianchi speared off the track. at point of impact, it was 93 kph. but worryingly chilton passed twice, once at 230 kph, then next time around at 243 kph.
