The Red Bulls seem fast, as was predicted.
Early days yet though
red bull seem a lot more stable into bends compared to the others, they don't seem faster in straightline but the aero/mechanical grip seems sorted.
it sounds like a motorbike race, these cars are so quiet.
Bring back the old 1000HP 4 cylinder turbos
that's me done for today then, not bad, i now got 1/2 hour to get ready for work.....................
Got a linky
Brilliant, built for 3 laps but what 3 laps! I was more a fan of the non turbo engines at the time, Cosworths etc. It certainly was exciting when Renault and Ferrari brought out the turbos so fast but thankfully for the likes of Alan Jones, unreliable
1 warm up lap, 1 flying lap & a return to the pits lap (if you were lucky)
I remember BMW saying "we think we're getting in excess of 1500HP but can't be sure because our dyno only goes that high"
The 3 lap "grenade motors" actually were built around a standard production 4 cylinder BMW block
Apparently a requirement of that block was it was well second hand with something like 100,000 miles on it for stress relief
can pm you one for tomorrow/sun don't think it's wise putting it on here.
Sounds like a motor bike
Sounds like a computer game that's got it all worng
Yeah the sound is so disapointing now, I am a Maclaren fan and hope they have a strong year.
I hope Hamilton gets it this year. I just don't feel at all excited about it this year though. I used to be really into it (I even worked on a documentary about McLaren when Hamilton and Alonso joined them), and I'd get up early to watch the races live, but these days I'm glad to only have to sit through the highlights shows, and tend to wander off to do other stuff instead of being glued to the screen for every lap
up and watching
So am I
A few spots of rain
you're obviously up it's normal time for you! i actually prefer these "early" races though as i'm up early anyway and i still get the weekend as normal, with the 13.00 european start times it ruins my day 'cos i can't be bothered to start summat in the morning 'cos i know once the race is on i won't go back to it after.
oh dear kimi.....
