F1 » Hamilton: I can’t remember having performance like this


must be nice to have the best car going into q2 hamilton got a radio message from the pits that said 'we think the cut off time will be 2.26.' that was the time rosberg had just set. did they cleverly inform hamilton of rosbergs time or did he really need an estimate on the cut off time to get into q3? also, does pole start from the left or from the right side of the circuit?

F1 » New stricter start controls revealed by FIA


so what do they have, foot or hand paddles to operate these two clutches? and if this kiss point is allowed to be altered after the start lockout period, what difference does this new rule make? they can set it up for the start and after the start they are allowed to change it again. you say the distance will never be the same, is that because the clutch is getting thinner?

F1 » New stricter start controls revealed by FIA


richard:
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
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?

F1 » What we learned at the British Grand Prix?


here4thesun2:
janhein: tracks are not going to be made wider. that is too expensive. making the cars wider may happen. i dont see the point though. wider, narrower, it would be an artificial change thought up not by the team that builds the car but by managers trying to mcgiver f1 back into shape. i learned that even with a freeze on development some teams manage to improve their cars during the season. i learned that the ninth race was more interesting than the first one. development is necessary in f1. it is part of the competition.
the wider track is the distance measured from the center of the left tire to the center of the right tire. The strategy group proposed that the cars could be made wider along with some other changes. Their goal is to make the cars faster.
thank you, my mistake
