mantresx commented on the post, The changes which will make next year's F1 cars "more difficult" to drive 2 weeks ago
Given that the ride will worsen so much for next year, I predict the teams will start pushing for active suspension very soon. If there’s one road-relevant technology I’d like to see developed is this one.
I’m curious on how this new sprint race will be considered in the rules.
Qualifying is technically a practice session, so will this mini race stay as as that? or will it be named as something else without […]

I have a simple suggestion for AM or any other that really wants to differentiate from the rest: Paint all the car, all the way to the floor including wings, bargeboards and endplates.
Currently they all leave […]

They really need to fix those rear tyres.
I just rewatched the last race and noticed huge vibrations when accelerating out of turn 3, for example Leclerc following Vettel on lap 50. Both had this strange […]
mantresx commented on the post, 'Burn-out' celebration wasn't a safety risk, says Verstappen 3 months, 2 weeks ago
What I find a bit disturbing is how every driver’s action is so scrutinized nowadays (by the media and fans in general) Max’s burnout, Bottas’ spin and so on.
Back in the day Charlie would probably have just […]
mantresx commented on the post, Is stamping out 'burn-out' celebrations a killjoy over-reaction? 3 months, 3 weeks ago
Yeah, I always cringe when I see a car slow down on the track, it doesn’t what the reason is: car broke down, stalled at the start or celebrating on the finish line.
And more specifically doing a burnout, what […]
mantresx commented on the post, Has Formula 1 finally found the solution to its alarming tyre failures? 3 months, 3 weeks ago
The problem is that by creating a high degradation tyre (by making it softer) it’s just more susceptible to be damaged by debris, kerbs, or slightly lower pressures.
For example I bet that if you grab a sharp […]
I just can’t help but think that if Charlie Whiting was still here we wouldn’t have this debacle, it would’ve been sorted before the season start.

Speaking of Reutemann I think he was hospitalized recently, hopefully he makes a full recovery soon.
Since pit to car telemetry is forbidden they rely on radio and the boards on the straight to know what the other drivers are doing and their gaps.

Exactly, I don’t like that ALL teams leave the floor and barge board areas unpainted.
I know they don’t want to make it easy to see the aero shapes, but it means that basically the lower half of all cars looks identical.
Interesting, so it seems that the halo was indeed a problem when trying to jump out of the car, he would’ve been out in 10 seconds otherwise.
I wonder if something can be done to mitigate that issue in the future.
Exactly, this is also why Stroll’s crash cut out just before we see him go upside down.
The cars do have that 360° camera on the front which records locally, I wonder if they’ll be able to recover […]
The most obvious reason to me it seems to have all cars cover the same distance.
Imagine if a car gets that free lap because it was lapped, but then later (In a crazy race) on goes on to win.
You could […]

Come on, this is hardly an attack on Jos. He’s merely pointing the facts about the main figure Max has had during his upbringing.
People say that everyone is his own man, but that’s not true at all. We’re in […]
mantresx started the topic How onboard cameras work and a look inside the F1 broadcast centre in the forum Formula One 2 years, 11 months ago
Hello there, I just wanted to share these videos that I found the other day.
They feature a vlogger from Mexico who got some pretty serious behind the scenes access to FOM’s broadcasting centre at the Japanese GP, as well as a quick chat with the onboard camera guys where they explained in great detail how the cameras work (this one’s pretty…[Read more]

This is great news!
But I really hope the video quality on live and vintage races is at least up to the same standard as the regular TV broadcast 1080p50, otherwise people might not completely ditch their cable […]

So @keithcollantine have you been approached by Motorsport yet??
What would you say if they came with a big offer?
On one side I don’t like that everything is centralised and the risk of loosing the truly […]
