F1 » Bottas sees potential FRIC advantage

This is the opinion of one of the Williams F1 drivers (first one so far), or is it? it will be hugely interesting to know the opinion and the way his employers will act in response to Whiting request. If no agreement is reached between the teams for FRIC to be used for the rest of the season it will not be possible for the teams most advanced with FRIC to be racing in Germany.

F1 » Pic finds 18-inch tyres ‘a big challenge’

Russell13: BJR The main reason is so that the tyer technology being produced for F1 is more useful and easily transfered to road cars, it was also one of the grounds for a mitchlin return to f1.
This is actually one of many a case were road car technology is being transferred from road cars to F1 and not the other way round, another example is brake-by-wire and direct injection, low profile tyre technology has been on road cars for some time now, but try ask anybody about the benefits of it and the result will be LOOKS AND IMPRESSING THE IMAGENERY OF BUYERS. When in 2010 Michelin wanted to return to F1 after four year absence introducing 18-inch tyres was their main precondition the aim of which was boosting the image of their sales, at that time one top team engineer whose team had fallen back on suspension matters said, such changes are a lot of work and expense but is welcomed by us as it gives us a new opportunity to catch-up.

Back in the nineties when at Leyton House Newey had a form of FRIC in use, more recent in 2008 Lotus when still Renault enquired with Whiting about introducing a ride height maintaining system operated by the braking system, they where first given the go-ahead by Whiting and later on told it will not be allowed, under Ross Brawn in 2012 the Mercedes system masterminded by Aldo Costa was described as akin to spaceship technology, not a single word was ever uttered by Whiting about the legality of this system, now all of a sudden Whiting is saying that it contrivance article 3.15. it is a right of the FIA to police what is legal or not but after allowing FRIC use for so long And now all of a sudden declaring it illegal Whiting is moving the goal post halfway through the season.
