F1 » Lotus to trial Coanda upgrades again

It's not a made up name, as I thought, it's actually a concept that was known about over 200 years ago. In the concept that expelled (exhausted) air will cling to a convex surface thereby providing lift for aircraft. Turn it upside down and you get downforce. These engineers are brilliant, are they not? Gets it's name from Henri Coanda, a Romanian aerodynamics pioneer and not from Loreal, Paris as I at first suspected.

F1 » F1 2012 POLL: Will the US GP be a success this time?

Surely Harry, there are more important things to consider than the celebrity girlfriend of one of the drivers. If celebrity is more important, to the US fan, then F1 in the USA is doomed as, being a World Championship where the participants actually come from all over the world, many drivers, as well as their home countries, will be totally unknown to the spectators. Please, someone tell me that the interest in F1 in the USA goes deeper than that.

F1 » RBR mystified by fuel check failure

ah seng. A simple question requiring a simple answer. Q1. 24 cars all setting a fastest time. Slowest seven dumped out. Q2. 17 cars all setting a fastest time. Slowest seven dumped out. Q3. Fastest car wins pole. Last year these cars had to enter Q3 with race fuel on board. This year they can run on a minimum amount of fuel and refuel before the start of the race. Must start race on the tyres used in the qualifying lap.
