F1 » New stricter start controls revealed by FIA


janhein: can somebody please explain this clutch bite point adjustment? i thought the cars were in first gear with the brakes on til the lights go out and then they just drive?
if you are used to driving a manual car, you will know that the point when a clutch begins to transmit drive is what as called the bite point. in an f1 car there is literally no slip, so the clutch is either engaged or disengaged. the driver has to know to the millimeter, when the clutch will suddenly engage. this will be felt during the warmup lap

F1 » Arrivabene wants Kimi to focus amidst speculation


csmith: I read from BBC f1 page that the ferrari have decided to get a new driver but are very confused at the moment. Bottas isnt as good as they thought (being beaten by oldman massa fair and square) and the only other option is nico hulkenberg. Kvyat seems as good as Ricciardo so that takes the shine off Ricciardo as well. I think they will pay any money to see Lewis get into a Ferrari (since he is the only winning driver) at the moment, but is Lewis even looking that way ? I doubt
oh dear. you believe everything that a website tells you? ferrari have made no decision, and even if they had, they would not be talking as to who were possibilities. and as for lulu? he is winning as he is in a merc. nico is also winning. and they have already refused lulu on two ocassions. they have a 4 wdc at present, and a 1 wdc. so why would they be falling over themselves to sign a 2 wdc when one of those wdc was purely a lucky wdc and not on merit?

F1 » New stricter start controls revealed by FIA


janhein: thanks richard. so what is being controlled stricter? what can the team do to help with the clutch bite point that they will not be allowed to do in the future?
on the warmup lap, the system is checked and info is transmitted to the pits. they then tell the driver what buttons to press so as th change the bite point. this will now no longer be allowed.

F1 » Mercedes warned for Silverstone dummy pit


speedfreak90: why do I get the feeling that anything creative in F1 is frowned upon. I am no the biggest Mercedes fan, but given the boredom fest that modern F1 is any new, creative trick to "spice" things up is welcomed, at least by me.They tried the tactic and it didn't work. I don't think that the mechanics were in danger during the time so no need to make a fuss about it .
its is nothing to with with "creativeness" ! the rule was brought in in the interests of pit safety and fairness. the teams agreed to it

F1 » Mercedes warned for Silverstone dummy pit


i agree that fines are stupid. most teams can well afford them. but what hurts them is the loss of points in the wcc. it is not the drivers fault, so the teams shoud be the ones to pay the price. and dont forget, their rewards at the end of the season are based on their points and position in wcc. apart from the macca fine, they suffered from being demoted in thei wcc standings.
