I just chanced upon these...
The secret aerodynamicist reveals design concepts
The secret aerodynamicist on design icon Adrian Newey
Unsurprisingly they don't give away any technical details, but
the first one has some interesting (some might say disheartening) thoughts on the development potential for Mercedes vs Ferrari.
the second reflects on how one of Newey's fundamental design philosophies has spread throughout the grid, with the exception of Mercedes
I'll be interested to see where he/she goes with future articles.
Yes, I read those this morning, interesting articles. I wonder who it is, Paddy Lowe in disguise?
"Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel says Mercedes consistent success in Formula 1 is "boring".
Well perhaps if he hadn't kept screwing up last year (and Ferrari allowed LeClerc to race properly this year) they may have broken the Merc strangehold..............
Has made himself look pretty ridiculous.
If it was him, just shows copycatting a design doesn't work................
Helps that they're not written by Benson
My mother in law was telling me about a funeral she did catering for a guy who passed called Jim Russell. Havnt heard of him but looked him up and it sounds like he had a facinating life in motorsport and he only lived just down the road from me.
Here's a pic she sent me. Its Emerson Fittipaldi's Lotus F3 car
As incredible as today's cars are, none of them are as evocative (for me) as something like that.
A completely different skill set really, but beautiful looking car. Manual gearbox, no aero. Bring back manual gearboxes, forces driver error on corners.
25 years ago today .
And Roland yesterday. Hard to believe that dark weekend is now 25 years since. It was bloody rough to live through. :'(
So here's a bit of intrigue: Patricio O'Ward (who I've never heard of before, but won Indy Lights last year. Bhaji?) has signed for the Red Bull Junior setup - and he already qualifies for a superlicense through a combination of IMSA (18), F4 (7), Mazda (7) and Indy Lights (15) points.
Bye bye Kvyat? Again?
It'll guarantee Verstappen a win so it's worth it.
Bit of an odd career he's had so far, makes him very hard to judge.
In the most surprising news all week mediocre pay driver of the moment Nikita Mazepin is testing this week... for Mercedes? What's that all about. Trying to get his family off Force Strolls back so they can concentrate on becoming Mercedes B?
The new Rio circuit looks underwhelming.
Fiat/Chrysler are looking to merge with Renault/Nissan
That could have certain effects on F1!
Crazy stat, outside of Red Bull and Ferrari, no driver without a Mercedes engine has made the podium in the turbo-hybrid era.
Decent driver. Not sure he’d be top grade. Mexican so may come with $, but he’s driving in Indy this year, so can’t see him moving across yet.
Scary on many levels!
Rich Energy lost a copyright court-case and have had to remove their logo from everything, which is on a few race cars, a few race bikes and 24 drink cans.
