F1 » Kate Walker: Fuel madness


Taipan: Ianman, I agree with much of that, I don't agree that the 100kg/h limit is to prevent running out of fuel as running out of fuel is still a real possibility with the flow limiter. The 100kg/h is to limit power, although I agree talk of 1700bhp is complete nonsense.
Right... I just don't get this rule. At all. Surely that no matter what fuel flow rate a driver uses in a race, if he completes every lap, then his average fuel flow rate will be the same as any other driver that has completed every lap? Thus, why does it matter how much they use at any given point in time? they'll have to average it out with a lower rate at another point in the race.

F1 » Ferrari already simulated Jerez, Bahrain tests


107SS2009: In short at least some of the races or parts of those races will be run in economy mode and not in F1 racing mode, but not to worry because running in economy mode there can still be some overtaking, depending on the level of economy drivers are driving at. I never ever thought that F1 racing will be run like this.
Me neither, but I suppose it is a fair reflection of the world in which we live these days. As far as I'm concerned, so long as there is still good on track action, I almost don't care how fast the cars are going. A good race is a good race after all. My only real gripe with modern day F1 is DRS. It's just rubbish.

F1 » Massa bids final farewell


We have an Emerson Fittipaldi McLaren Monaco GP used engine block (just the block) at work and that's apparently worth £20k or £60k (I forget which!). It's a lovely thing to look at! I didn't even know we had it when I stumbled upon it in a room on a table one day. Couldn't believe it!
