F1 » F1 Accident Panel: ‘Bianchi did not slow sufficiently’


RMcGeddon: @ Richard "it would be physically impossible to have sufficient long reach cranes to cover a 3 mile circuit!" The Monaco organisers seem to manage ok. And I suspect that Suzuka, tight though it is probably presents more options than Monte Carlo.........
oh come on! monaco is totally different. lined totally with armco and with plenty of slip roads to allow cranes to be available at nearly every corner. but there are many area where there are no cranes, and it would be impossible to have a crane. any car that crashes or breaks down will be on the actual track or a slip road. other tracks have large run off areas where a car will finish off the track

F1 » F1 Accident Panel: ‘Bianchi did not slow sufficiently’


Pau1inel: Perhaps this is a very naive question but I wonder why the crane was IN FRONT of the crash barrier? Surely a crane can lift a car from behind the barrier?
long reach cranes are used quite a lot and from behind barriers. however, at most circuits, there would be some of these where the access to the track from behind the barriers is easy. but they need other lifting machines for places where a long reach crane cannot be used , and to tow cars back into safety. that is what happened here, a teleporter was dragging sutils car away from an area not able to be accessed by a long reach crane. it would be physically impossible to have sufficient long reach cranes to cover a 3 mile circuit!

F1 » Renault F1 has ‘huge job list’ for 2015


go. yes, i have always pointed out (since the beginning of the year) that the split turbo was mercs trick. the fia had not anticipated that! but it is the difficulty of renault and ferrari to provide this that is their stumbling block. merc pass the drice shaft through the engine block, haveing designed it for that purpose. ferrar have developed a system but had to pass their drive shaft through and over the V. that raises the c of g and does create other problems. renault havent done it as yet but are trying a disc turbo which can be mounted lower and with a lower external drive shaft. the only other thing that they could do is to build a new engine block, but currently they cannot....too many tokens needed! ferrari and renault wanted a lift of numbers of tokens to allow them to build a new block, but as i said, merc said NEIN !!!

F1 » Vettel’s first Ferrari F1 run ‘something very magic’


fourteenseven: plenty of top line drivers in recent times have had to lower pay demands and drum up extra money to stay on the grid. vettel is now a ferrari employee. no team can guarantee a winning car, most of them cant guarantee being on the grid long term, whilst ferrari possibly have a more certain future than formula one itself. for anyone who loves to 'race' cars, ferrari is a dream. a very small percentage of people on the planet will have the oppertunity to drive the nee ferrari fxx k unfettered around a race track with its vicious v12 and 190 hp of kers boost. i think getting paid is the bonus
when has there been a v 12 ferrari with kers? if you are referring to the v8 of two years ago, it had only 80 bhp of kers boost!
