Aye, I understand this - that was for illustration purposes.
I thought FIA could afford radar guns.
I'd have thought they could afford some decent radar guns, yes.
Given that the technology is there, they should really be able to afford the very best available, methinks.
Speaking of technology having improved, here's a piccie of Sir Jackie Stewart and Graham Hill racing their BRM's at the infamous Nurburgring, presumably in the days before the concept of 'road holding' entered the equation. No particular reason for posting the image, other than I just happened to find it and think 'WTF?!'
Said this ages ago.
No doubt lewis will retain the championship but it will of course have far more benefit to both massa and fezza if they sue flav directly... as he can afford it... which they will and he'll lose.
he didn't go over the speed limit. as your own link says.
you've also miss interpretted it they took a measurement based on the lenght of the pit lane and the known time it takes to cover this distance at top speed (limited to 100 kph) they don't account for the fact that the pit entrance is a variable in the equation and therefore didn't measure it based on his real distance traveled but on what they believed to be a standard distance traveled. they were wrong.
both cars had broken suspension after that shot was taken. though were judged to be good enough to carry on racing...
and yes it should be done via real time speed measurements. hell I'm sure we've got gatso's a plenty in the UK they could remove and use every county could donate one for each team for each track and there'd be no significant drop off in revenue raised by them...I mean road safety
though it bloody annoys me that they call it a vintage racing scene it fucking isn't if anything it's a classic racing scene... a vintage racing scene would be this 2.5 ton napier railton doing 100+ mph at brooklands...
tho this was Laffite in 1977 some 12 years after Hill and Stewarts flying...
Great qualiy session - well worth getting up for!
Or watching the repeat later today.
Yep very 'interesting' session....still wondering why both Brawns haven't been pushed back as they clearly didn't lift off in the area with debris and yellows.
They have now, along with Alonso, Kovalainen, Buemi and Luizzi.
which surely means that Sebastien Buemi should have a far greater penalty for continuing on after the accident and causing the issues which lead to the yellow flags it's quite clear that he failed to pull in and stop his car and could have lifted off to prevent the debris going on to the track.
It's typical playstation driving I'd like to see him banned for 2 races for that little stunt tbh...
Seems like Barrichelo was fueled heavier than Button so should be an interesting fight between them.
And what's with suddenly telling drivers to stay in the car until a doctor arrives if they crash?
Anyone would think Bernie was trying to extend the championship race by getting more red flags and safety cars to shake up the order.
narrow run off areas and also I think it's as a direct result of the hawking which has gone on around recent gp2 accidents where commentators and track commentators started speculating about potential drivers deaths before this has been confirmed etc if they all have to sit in the car then you don't know because it's the same rule.
I'll ask an official, it might just be for this race and in reaction to the potential that a track may be sued for negligence if they get out and then suffer greater more significant injury instead of being certified safe to get out of the car...
Anyone else up yet? I doubt the championship will be decided this morning, but should be an exciting race regardless.
Buemi needs to get out of f1 fucking hopeless driver stalling it at the start after yesterday is a firing move.
Agreed, he doesn't deserve a race. Vettel has this in the bag, looks like its going to Brazil.
Looks like heard me!!!
Abu dabi if bernard has his way
Get in. Sutil dropped it kovalinan once again throws away his mclaren drive
Ooooo. Nasty crash. Could be good for Hamilton and button.
That livened it up a bit.
Hilight of the race was seeing the corridor of pretty japanese girls before the podium. Is the corridor of pretty girls each race a new thing this year?
Awr fookin hell. A stewards inquiry! Though it might mean brawn win the constructors. Nico saying he didn't gain an advantage. Which is an admittance of guilt.
Seems to be for the asian races can't see it being for abu dabi
2 races left, init?
So did Rosberg get the 25 second penalty? Nothing mentioned on the BBC website so I'm guessing not.
just watched the re-run and no, rosberg did not take a penalty, Result stands.
cos bearnard wants it to go to abu dabi.. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motorsport/formula_one/8289201.stm
I wonder what Jensen will get disqualified for in the next race .
cough taken out (gearbox fail) cough
Yeah it's getting silly now...Hamilton's penalty is Spa last year now this....I think Jenson needs to get out at the front and just win the thing before Bernard decides he hates Ross Brawn.
I really don't get it who prevented Rosberg from getting accurate telemetry data? And why when he clearly gained an advantage regardless was the advantage not removed from him again?
