This is my understanding too. The low pressure under the car, literally sucks the water from the track, before the diffusers throw it into the air. So I’m not sure how much the fenders would help.
Actually, I remmeber the predictions being the complete opposite. It was always expected that spray would be worse, as ground effect sucks the water from the track, then the diffuser throws it into the air. The […]
I don’t think anyone will ever know the whole truth of the situation. Webber is adamant that Alpine were advised of the McLaren move earlier than they claim. Alpine were also happy to dump Piastri at Williams, a b […]
Unpopular opinion, I’d like to see them try flipping DRS on its head. Instead of being available when within a second of car in front, make it available when Over 2 seconds from the car in front. Could keep the p […]
This situation kills the whole argument that “racing in places with poor human rights is ok, because we may have a positive cultural impact.” Well clearly not. Any idiot knows that those in charge couldn’t care […]
This is the first Formula E Grand Prix i have watched that felt like a grown up race. The wider track provides so many more racing opportunities and added even more weight to the idea that FE needs to move to […]
In the UK, the Hour long highlights package is now on Channel 4. My guess is you could watch it with a VPN. They’ve got a fairly good knowledge of motorsport coverage over the years, having hosted the Formula 1 f […]
That’s one part of the car that a lot seem to have neglected. Early tenders showed fake “alloys” painted on them. Then there was rumours of having a light display on them. Both of these appear to have been dropped.
I personally like the bare carbon look. Plus paint adds weight. But it’s obviously too dark for some sponsors, which is why it ends up a patchwork.

This just shows to me how poor the official camera angles are on broadcast. The cars look so much faster here than they do in tv. I get that a lot of that is due to the focal length, but let’s be honest, it’s mos […]

I think this is the base version, useful for PR and testing other parts in Pre season when everyone is watching. Things like fancy aero or tricks aren’t going to be shown off just yet. There’s still time for oth […]

The problem is that it never transitioned to road cars. It has no benefit to Porche et al to develop a system that is only exclusive to one race series.
Personally, I hope Mercedes win their legal battle. That was a horrible ending to a championship that just felt false and manufactured. Having said that, I do hope the win doesn’t strip Verstappen of the […]
I do t think he’s come out well of this whole saga at all. I feel him not wanting the meeting discussed publicly is more to cover his pride, and the fact other drivers are concerned by his move being deemed l […]
I do t think Max comes out well at all. It comes across as every other driver thought he was wrong at Brazil and he doesn’t want it discussed. Every driver is concerned about the precedent that has been set. I […]
Don’t count your chickens just yet. Hamilton only replaced his ICE at the last race. There’s still a slim chance one of the other components could go wrong. There’s also the ever present chance of one them just […]

They were talking about putting LED dipsplay panels on them previously, showing race position etc. but I’ve seen nothing about it in a while. So not sure if it’s happening.
I don’t mind the onboards actually. The camera is mounted high enough that you can still see the the front of the car and the front tyres. Plus the Halo has actually led to a pretty cool TV graphic design. The c […]
Completely agree. While improvements to its safety credentials are obviously great, I’m more interested in seeing how it looks. It love to see it move streamlined to fir the car profile better. i think one of the […]
