any overtaking 😉
tbh am not a huge formula 1 fan ,but i did love it back in the 80’s (nigel “the tasch” mansell era).
have no idea about the new rules with the cars? i reckon they should go back to the days of no driver aids,manual gearchanging,turbocharged engines and let the designers go for it with aerodynamics 😉
or better still create wipeout (game) league for real 😀
am hoping red bull don’t run away with it for once.Posted 4 years agoCaptain PugwashMember
I said in a previous post that Redbull would be in the mix, the have they biggest budget and the best designer in Newey. Things may be different when it dries out but I’m really looking forward to the season and hope that one team doesn’t get dominant. We will see in the first few races.Posted 4 years agoslackaliceMember
Is there anywhere on the web that includes which tyre compound the drivers were using to set their fastest laps?
All the time sheets I’ve seen so far don’t have this info.
As an example, in yesterday’s FP2, Button was 0.9 secs slower than the quickest lap, setting this time on the medium compound, whereas everyone else set their quickest using soft’s. Given there seems to be about 1 to 1.5 secs difference between the two compounds, that makes the McLaren very competitive.
Granted, we don’t know what fuel loads the cars were carrying and this will also massively affect/distort the timings, so we’ll never know the true picture but presuming teams are looking at their qualifying pace during FP. My basic assumption is that the quicker times, particularly on soft tyres, are with low fuel loads.Posted 4 years ago
