woo! So glad race season is starting up again. I am kind of underwhelmed by the performance of the cars so far this season, though.

di Montezemelo and Ecclestone are supposed to meet with Todt to discuss the fuel restriction ridiculousness. Afraid nothing can be done about the sound at this point.

I don’t mind them making restrictions that will lessen the amount of fuel used. But if they’re going to do that, then there need to be other changes made that will allow the cars to simply go faster. I’m no engineer, but the idea that a racing series like F1 can’t use technology to make the lap times go down rather than up is just ridiculous.

The cars look and sounds less cool every year. Now they’re getting slower. The idea that car racing should be “green” is insane.

I agree. If they want a “Green” race they can give them bicycles.

what i don't understand is, you and everybody else has X amount of fuel, what the hell does the FIA care how fast you use it??? if you run out you run out...

even though i hate the engines, it's weird hearing tire squeal and complain again

Not to be mean but restrictions on fuel? In racing? Really? Since the heat extracted and the heat rejected in an internal combustion engine is essentially constant on a percentage basis, the way to get more power is to flow more air through the engine. An air to fuel ration of 12 or 12.5 to 1 is pretty much ideal for energy extraction (alcohol fuel air ratios are lower) so it should come as no suprise that power drops as fuel is restricted. So don’t expect speeds to rise. Except perhaps with bigger undercarriage wings.

I agree. Great technology hobbled by political rules. I must say I liked drag racing and did what I could in it when I was younger. We didn’t give a d@mn about fuel usage in the quarter mile. And still don’t. F1fans need to take back their chosen sport. Let the sanctioning body know what you think. Do it in droves and they will listen.

Haas’s US team to be given green light into F1 by next year:

Bernie Ecclestone has revealed that a new team run by an American businessman is on track to join Formula One next year. It will become the sport’s 12th team and the first from America since the 1980s. Formula One has not had an American driver since 2007. The team is run by Gene Haas, the joint owner of the championship-winning Stewart-Haas Racing team [#4, #10, #14, #41], which competes in America’s NASCAR stock car series. “I think Haas will be accepted,” said Ecclestone, the sport’s chief executive. “They have got the money but it’s a question of whether they are going to spend it.” In addition to his stake in the NASCAR team, Haas is also the founder of leading American engineering firm Haas Automation, which has annual revenues of around $1bn (£600m). It gives him the resources to fuel his bid and he is already using it to attract top names, as Günther Steiner, a former technical director of the four-time Formula One champions Red Bull Racing, is understood to be involved.(The Independent)(4-3-2014)

Yes NBCSC

Night race local China time so 11 AM ‘ish (not Amish) EST.

LOL! I just had a vision of an Amish F1 Race Party.

It was weird...

Sitting in the barn with horses on the walker outside hooked up to a generator to run the rented 60” flat screen, drinking Goats milk.

Time to mix another drink to clear that image out of My head.

Pups plowed under the bed covers at 0130 or so...let a possum cross the yard they’ll knock out a window to get it. Let a lighting flash come in the window, I get two quivering puddles.

Self-defiling begins in, 3...2...1... I gotta save a stogie fer Sunday, post-race.

Who’s gonna win the race, Sunday?

Mayhaps thing are lookin’ up for Schumacher.
