F1 » Bottas sees potential FRIC advantage


Yamaha has build 4, V6, V8 AND V12 racing engines, plus producing the 5 Valve heads for the Cosworth DFV, their best success was as a result of their money through the John Judd designed and build F1 3L V10 which had screw-into-the-heads cylinder liners (no gaskets and big hold-down bolts) as a consequence of which that V10 was the smallest and lightest on the grid, I remember the than F1 Japanese driver lifting one from the ground waist high in the pit garage.

F1 » Bottas sees potential FRIC advantage


The Yamaha 5.0l V8 used in the Volvo super car is a bored-out version of a smaller V8, it has no connection with F1. Yamaha did build a F1 V8 in 1989 it was the ox88 which wasn’t successful. On the previous subject (FRIC), it was reported that FERRARI, RBR, Marussia, mclaren, Mercedes, Lotus and Williams have already claimed they will support a pact not to protest any team for running FRIC system, Toro Rosso!, Caterham, Sauber, and Force India have so far not provided their support. A note here, it is very strange that RBR promised support while Toro Rosso did not.

F1 » Schumacher's wife: Michael 'improving'


Jack, from a long time ago I have been saying that only CRASH NET can eliminate this behaviour from on this site, it’s easy for them to do so, but my guess is the thing is still being stuck in their weighing scales. Lately they removed the facility from on some selected headline news, which was a good move, which also goes to show that they not only know about but also recognise this chronic problem.

F1 » Bottas sees potential FRIC advantage


Richard, That at least the top three teams developed their FRIC system in the wind tunnel is out from reliable sources. A wind tunnel model is a 60% scale complete with Pirelli supplied scale tyres, having been making scale (miniature) fully working models of ICE’S I don’t see any difficulty in teams producing a 60% scaled FRIC system, remember that modern wind tunnels have a moving floor (belt) that can be yawned and pitched to simulate road surface. As to pulling FERRARI into this topic, I stand with what I said although I consider that as water that has past under the bridge now.

Commodore, “pity you can’t find the respective material on said site” well everything is possible, but believe me, it’s is near impossible for such things to have escaped me. Anyhow I am in full agreement with all the rest of your opinion/s in your latest post, “tyre wear effect” for sure, no doubt, as aero down force will be effected which in turn it will effect traction, “will take particular drivers out of their comfort zone” again agree, and for sure, because aero down force will be effected. “politics and sports should never mix” that’s the way it is supposed to be and the way it should be, but time and time again it has been proved that politics and the “divide to rule” are two of MR F1’S strongest tools. And finally, thanks for the chance of civilised discussion, appreciate your effort.

F1 » Bottas sees potential FRIC advantage


At least the three big teams has developed their sophisticated FRIC system (wait for it) in the wind tunnel!. And it is said that at least the best system/s get an advantage of one half second per lap. And Commodore, Force India says they will go with the majority over the FRIC debacle, but that they will protest if somebody is using FRIC in Germany and they are not.
