F1 » Max Yamabiko: The impact of more regulation delays


Mullet: Well, the current minimum weight with driver is 702 kg, a Lotus 98T spec sheet from 1986 reads 540 kg without driver, a Lotus 49 from 1967 reads 501 kg. Assuming a 70 kg driver the cars are getting fatter from 2 to 3 kg per year. By 2116 we should be hitting the ton mark assuming people of the future are not much lighter than us!
the extra weight is due to increased safety provisions. if you remember, the older cars seemed to fall asunder at the slightest suggestion. cars nowadays are far stronger. wheels and tyres add even more weight. special ultralight metals have been banned to keep cost down.. etc etc

F1 » New qualifying format set to be delayed


MattShctick: But there is good news, this wondrous new qualifying format WILL be in place for Monaco, so we should be able to witness the most monumental stuff up that Bernie has yet dreamed up. Then perhaps someone will phone for the men in white coats to come and take him away.
when will people understand. this is NOT a bernie idea. it was devised by the fia and the teams ! i am not defending bernie, nor do i think it is a good idea. but if the teams have decided on it, then followers of the sport have to accept it
