Would shorter cars significantly decrease possible speeds in F1 cars? 2019-05-15 21:16:25

I've been watching F1 my whole life, but seriously for about the last 3 years. I keep wondering if it would significantly slow the cars down if they were dramatically shorter. The cars keep getting longer, but the tracks don't so I wonder if the cars are just too long to be overtaken on these tracks. Can someone who is more technically knowledgeable about this than I am help me out here?

I think the race directors are partly responsible for the boring races. 2019-05-15 19:53:36

Hey, 2018 pre-Drive to Survive newbie here.

I have seen an intriguing amount of people (with more insight than I) say that there have been great racing moments, even during the Spanish GP, that simply weren't shown during the broadcast.

Sainz vs. Ricciardo, Norris slipping wide in turn 1, Kvyat's awesome drive. None of it was shown during the race.

I know it's quite challenging to keep up with all the interesting bits when you're dealing with a sport like F1, but I feel like the complaints of it being the most expensive parade would be culled a little bit if more of these moments were shown.

SHOW THE MIDFIELD! We get it. The race leader is sitting comfortable with a 7.8 second lead. Can we actually see the competition?

Do you guys agree with me or am I asking for too much?

My predictions for seats next season 2019-05-15 17:24:45

I’m only making this post because the current season is essentially over, the only thing we have left to watch is Bottas V Hamilton. I do want to make it clear that I’m not mad at either of them or Mercedes it’s just a disappointing season so far.

Anyways next years team could change or be the same but here’s what I think will happen:

Hamilton: He stays no matter what

Bottas: I think he will stay almost for sure but if he doesn’t take the championship Ocon might slip in, but most likely not.

Vettel: Seb is a great driver don’t get me wrong but the Ferrari is not looking like the right car for him, the countless lock ups and spins, I think he will stay at Ferrari but there is a slim chance that I think he may go back to Red Bull

Leclerc: He will 100% stay at Ferrari

Verstappen: Max will stay at Red Bull for sure, if he were to move it would be up, but he won’t move

Gasly: He will definitely not stay at RB with his current performances, you may argue he’s getting used to the car, which he should be used to by now, he has finished with in 2 places of his teammate only once so far. I think he will move to Alfa Romeo or loose his seat and become a test driver

Hulkenberg: As much as I am a fan of Nico, he’s not doing spectacular, I think he will move to Alfa or he’ll lose his seat, perhaps a test driver

Ricciardo: Note: Daniel is my favorite driver so take this with a grain of salt. I think Daniel will stay at Reno, they are making decent strides to get to the back of Red Bull, Ricciardo is the man to do it, if he moves I could see him back with Max at Red Bull

Sainz: He will stay

Norris: Lando is doing a great job, but has made some mistakes so I think he will be at Mclaren for 1 more year then move up

Raikkonen: Kimi can probably do what ever he wants, he is far too hard to read, he might even retire, but my best guess is he stays with Alfa

Giovinazzi: This is probably his last season on the track, Ferrari might take him back as a test driver

Kvyat: He will stay with Toro Rosso one more year or go back with Red Bull, he’s doing quite well

Albon: He is doing ok, he did one good performance and a few fancy moves but nothing to be amazed by, I think he will stay at Toro Rosso

Russell: I know he is capable of much more, the Williams is just too slow, if he’s lucky he might get picked up by Reno or Racing Point, otherwise he stays with Williams

Kubica: He has a great personal story, but his situation is more or less the same as Russell’s, but I think Russell is more coveted among the two of them because he is younger

Stroll: I came out of last season a Lance Stroll hater I thought he was annoying in interviews, which he still is, and that he didn’t deserve a seat because his Daddy’s money. I was proved wrong, he hasn’t done anything big but he’s faster than I thought, but he will go where ever his dad goes, so he probably isn’t moving

Perez: He will stay at Racing Point

Magnussen: He May race dirty, but he is fast and I think Haas is the perfect place for him

Grosjean: Note: I am a hater of Grosjean so take this with a grain of salt. He should go back to being a chef. I know he’s rather quick every once in a blue moon but last season he crashed so many times, one time on a formation lap. These are supposed the best drivers in the world not failed go kart enthusiasts. It was clear in the Netflix documentary the Gunther is not a fan of him either. Grosjean doesn’t deserve a seat next year, or this year.

Why no Nürburgring in current F1? 2019-05-15 16:44:27

Hi, Netflix-noob here.

With the Spanish GP being so boring, the threat of Monaco looming and the news about Zandvoort I've seen a lot of discussion about how some tracks just make for bad racing.

Now I wonder why then, is there no F1 on the Nordschleife? I can't imagine it being boring. A legendary and notorious track. And the track could use the money!

Is it because of safety? They used to race there in old f1 cars, surely modern cars are a lot safer? Also, they let normal people race on the track. A BMW might not quite reach f1 speeds but it seems to me an amateur can easily be a greater danger to themself and others, in any car, than a professional.

I'm sure there's something obvious I'm missing but I just can't figure out what.

(Or maybe I'm totally wrong and the Nordschleife would be an absolutely coma-inducing race, but that's hard to fathom for me haha)

Pole position has been a disadvantage in this last few races? 2019-05-15 14:16:20

Compare the grips of pole and 2nd on the grid and you can see there's a massive difference

  1. Australia harder to see but you can see there's a difference in grip
  2. Bahrain again lots of tyre streaks on 2nd place and hardly any on pole
  3. China same problem
  4. Azerbaijan looks more or less the same between pole and 2nd
  5. Spain can see deeper tyre marking on 2nd place

as Mercedes Spain debrief explains, a lack of grip on the pole position side means you're more likely to get wheel spin. and this explains bottas' comments of a experiencing biting and releasing of the clutch during the race start.

As others on here have mentioned, the pole driver should be able to chose which side they should start on on race day and every falls back from there.

What are your thoughts?

What would be the effect on a race when a team has to start on two different tire compounds? 2019-05-15 13:28:36

Would it spice up the race? It might be artificial, but that also goes for starting on your Q2 tires in the race.

Maybe it would just make it harder to see what's going on as a spectator and only plays out in the last ten laps. I can come up with many thoughts about it. But what are yours? How stupid is my idea (to ask it in reddit language)?

First things first, I have not watched any motorsports in about 15 years, so please tell me if my questions are not good here or answered elsewhere (then please link me to them)

Do you think they will move away from fossil fuels to electric, why should or shouldn’t they?

Do you think it would be equally interesting to you if they would swap?

Does motorsport in general make an noticeable impact on the environment?

I am just curious what you guys think will happen in the future.

Smaller F1 cars? 2019-05-15 12:47:00

So a while back I saw a post on instagram from Lewis comparing the size of his current car and an older car 2018 vs 2007 it was I believe. The 2018 was so much larger.

I was wondering why are the cars this much larger now? And do you guys consider this one of the reasons overtaking has grown more difficult? Personally I would think the cars should get smaller to me most circuits just seem to small for the cars.

I think Ferrari ended RAI/VET era 1 year too soon 2019-05-15 10:16:46

Leclerc is the right choice for Ferrari but the results would've been better if he hadn't arrived just yet.

2017 and 2018 Ferrari was quite a balanced team. Binotto focusing on developing a fast car and Arrivabene leading the team strictly but sensibly. Kimi helped in pointing out the flaws from the design.

2019 might have been the pinnacle of that era. Obviously now we will never know. Bwoahithappensbutit'sthesameforeveryone.

Newbie: how do cars develop during the season? 2019-05-15 08:19:00

I watched the Netflix documentary plus two races and I'm hooked. I can't believe I ignored this awesome race for so many years!!

I understand cars can be upgraded during the season. Would it theoretically be possible that Williams scores points due to such an upgrade ? Has something like that happen in the past ?

What if F1 introduced a luxury tax via test days? 2019-05-15 04:33:38

A lot of professional sports attempt to help competition by introducing salary/spending caps or luxury taxes. I don't think that a spending cap really fits the spirit of F1; however, what if F1 allowed teams to purchase additional in-season test days with the caveat that for each additional test day that a team participates in, they must write a check that gets distributed to the other F1 teams based on their current constructor points standings (25m/day for the 1st place constructor, 18m/day for 2nd, etc).

My thinking is that by basing the pricing of test days on constructor standings, the additional cost would make it so the team leading the championship would have to give a lot of money to other teams to do additional testing, whereas a team at the bottom could test more to try to catch up relatively inexpensively.

If we applied this system to this year, maybe Ferrari could decide to buy 5 test days and give 90m to the other teams (18m/day for 2nd place), Williams might decide to do testing to get their car back into the midfield for a relatively small sum of 1m/day, and Renault could try to fix its car for $4m/day (for 8th place). I feel like unless Ferrari caught up to Merc, Merc probably wouldn't spend an extra 25m for a day of testing, and maybe you'd get a few days from RBR to also help them close the gap.

I think this system would favor constructors that were willing to spend money to fix critical issues with their cars, while helping mid-field teams get more money for doing R&D/parts/etc. That said, if lets say Red Bull, Ferrari, and Merc ended up spending 200m for in season testing, the other teams would get ~25m each...would that help their competitiveness, or would that just further cement F1/F1.5? I would like to think that more cash would help the mid-field make larger gains to get them closer to the front, and the top teams would be more competitive with each other for hopefully more exciting races.

Could a system like this work? Do you think it would cause better or worse racing in both the short or long term?

Canadian GP reseller ticket questions. 2019-05-15 03:48:10

Going to Canadian GP with a group and we were slow making a decision on tickets and most good options were sold out. We found someone selling some tickets online that seemed to be legit. I have a couple questions that you might be able to answer to help me confirm they are legitimate!

1) Do the weekend passes come as seperate tickets (Friday, Saturday, sunday) or are they one single pass? Does it make sense for someone to be selling just Sunday tickets for GS 15?

2) Does anyone have a picture of a ticket that I could compare to?

3) Any other thoughts on how I might confirm they are real?

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help out!

don't kill the messenger: WDC or WCC first 2019-05-15 03:39:16

I'm not doing this because I really care about the math at this point, but because someone in a thread posited the question:

at this rate, which will happen first? Merc win WCC, or either one of their drivers is guaranteed win the WDC? (see clarification below...this is NOT when someone clinches the WDC)

It's an off week, so what the hell.

Merc are currently outscoring SF by 19.2 points a race. In order to clinch the title, their lead must be 44 * num races remaining.

so 19.2 * x = 44 * (21 - x)

x = 14.6

After 15 races, mercedes will have a 288 point lead, with 264 points remaining, which would be singapore.

Lewis is currently outscoring max by 9.2 points a week. In order to clinch, their lead must be 26 * num races remaining

9.2 * x = 26 * (21-x) x = 15.5

After 16 races, lewis will have a 147 point lead with 130 points remaining, which would be Russia.

So mercedes is on track to clinch the WCC before the WDC. Note that I do not subscribe to this, but figured I'd answer the question.

EDIT: to clarify, it's not when someone clinches the WDC, it's when it's guaranteed to go to one of their drivers, regardless of which. It's a different question.

A little help for a guy with a short attention span and diagnosed moderate/severe ADHD? 2019-05-15 02:56:23

I absolutely love formula one and have done since around 2007-8 I look forward to every race and it has become one of my favourite things.

But I find it difficult to keep up, I always watch the race slightly behind specifically so I can pause and study the on screen info, or simply just to catch up because I genuinely struggle to keep my mind on one thing for very long, I couldn't possibly watch a whole race from start to finish and then be able to tell you what happend...

Are there any youtubers who help us keep up to date worth watching? Or any links to coherent up to date news? Or have you any advice on how I can get up to scratch and learn more?

I do use the f1 app but most the news on there doesn't interest me it seems click bate almost

Any help at all is honestly so appreciated, I've lurked this sub for ages and you all seem so humble and knowledgeable.

Should Circuits be designed for Formula 1 Cars or Formula 1 Cars be designed for Circuits? 2019-05-15 02:22:44

As the title says, with Zandvoort's announcement and the questioning from this sub on the track being too narrow and twisty.

So by that logic we should have circuits with enough track width to enable great passing, but then we have an engineered track like COTA or Bahrain. But these are referred to as "Tilkedromes" with far too much runoff, and then we go opposite with Valencia or Monaco. With Monaco demonstrating the drivers ability to drive to the nth degree due to nil run off, but affording very little passing opportunities. So lets engineer a track to encourage passing, we're back at the Tilkedromes

Even "classic tracks" like Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya which created a "snorefest" this weekend, which is probably due to Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya being a testing track.

So, should teams design their cars around the differing tracks Zandvoort/Monaco/Bahrain, or should Formula 1 choose tracks around the cars, and we end up with a calendar full of Korea/Bahrain/China etc?
