That ^ is great news, sounds a lot more positive now.
Two points stand out;Ermmm... How are William's still on the grid? Talk about dire straights. Now we will really never know if Kubica got the most of the car in his come back.
According to this article, I was a little harsh on Williams earlier. They had four front wings, not two...“I think we were very lucky, or somehow you have to be lucky as well, as in first-lap accident you never know as you have no control of the others,” Kubica is quoted by Motorsportweek.com.
“I think together with George we have been lucky the whole season not to do silly things, or limit silly things, and we were able to hide the problem for pretty long.
“But unfortunately Singapore and Russia showed up that we were not ready for what is called a risk of motorsport, and racing, as in the end nothing strange happened we just lost a couple of front wings, which might happen every weekend.”
Pity for you I don't actually support anyone, as long as it's not a Merc 1-2 I'm happy. What a craazzzyyy fanboy I am!If you go by that yardstick then it we can sum it up as "behind Bottas a non world champ" and "at least 5 wins behind the current world champ" and "miles ahead of Raikkonen who is a World Champ".
You fan boys are silly... tsk tsk
The screen has de-fogging capability and it was just tested for a second time in wet conditions at Barber Motorsport Park and the drivers cleared it.The aeroscreen IndyCar will adopt in 2020 is stronger than the halo device used in Formula 1 and other single-seater categories, according to developer Red Bull Advanced Technologies.
The device - which also features a halo-like structure - was tested on-track for the first time on Wednesday at Indianapolis, after which IndyCar drivers Will Power and Scott Dixon suggested it would be ready immediately if required.
The halo device F1 introduced for 2018 is tested with a load of 112 kilonewtons on the car, and can take a reported maximum load of 125kN in total, but the aeroscreen is thought to be capable of withstanding 25kN more than that.
"We've adopted it [the halo, in F1], however, the forces which this device [the aeroscreen] or the hoop will take is 150kN," said Red Bull Advanced Technologies commercial development officer Andy Damerum (pictured below).
"So I think that at the moment [this will take] more than the F1 halo. 150kN this will take."
Just need now to put wipers and indicators onPossible changes coming to F1 cockpit protection?
