Formula One Group struggled because of corona

Italy’s Ferrari racing team will probably face a hurdle when attending the Grand Prix. Authorities notified all visitors from Italy to be subject to quarantine for 14 days.

The most famous F1 team was forced to suspend all business trips and factory sightseeing activities when it was located more than 110 km from the corona center in Italy. Outbreaking, COVID-19 caused 2,036 people to become ill in Italy, with 52 deaths.

This could become a big obstacle for the Ferrari team to attend the Vietnam Grand Prix, the first Formula 1 race scheduled to take place in April this year. It makes Ferrari harder than rivals.

Farrari is not the only victim. AlphaTauri is an F1 team based in Italy. Boss Franz Tost recently said that the corona virus is a really serious problem for his team. Mr. Tost emphasized that it is not fair for some teams to not participate in the tournament for any reason.

So far, the corona virus has only caused F1 to postpone racing in China. They are scheduled to take place in Shanghai next month. Next weekend, the race to open the season will be held in Australia despite the country has restricted flights from Italy.

Hungary is the only country among 22 host countries to host F1 race without any corona virus infection. Crowding makes F1 races particularly dangerous, especially when the epidemic in many countries is out of control. That’s why Formula One Group stock has lost 21 percent of its value over the past month.

In Bahrain, the organization of the F1 race one week after the opening is still in place. Although there have been 49 cases of corona virus infection recorded in this small country.

The problem does not stop there. F1 documents stated that there must be at least 16 vehicles participating in a race. However, there is another problem. The F1 broadcast license contract states that the cost of the license will be reduced if there are fewer than 15 races in a season if it is not a force majeure event.

In the long time, corona virus can cause problems for Formula One Group. Their contract with 10 racing teams will end later this year and neither side will sign a new deal at the moment.

Tour de France learned to improve the F1 race

For the first time in history, the Tour de France has arranged staggering lines for each other in the same way F1 racing for the 17th stage.

Section 17 has a length of 65km from Bagneres-de-Luchon to the summit of Col de Portet (Hautes-Pyrenees). This is a very special stage because it has the shortest distance in the modern era of “Le Tour”. Therefore, many people consider this to be an unofficial timing race.

Topographic map of stage 17 Tour de France 2018. Although short (65km) but very challenging, not suitable for sprinters and an opportunity for mountain climbers to score.

The only difference is that the racetrack is not flat with the starting point located at the foot of the climb to the summit of Col de Peyresourde, the first of the 3 peaks that athletes need to conquer. The last peak of Souvenir Henri Desgrange is also the destination with the level HC, the most difficult level.

According to the layout of TDF 2018, the driver holding the yellow shirt will line up first, the next 19 positions will stand behind. The rest will be divided into 4 groups spanning about 70m.

Although Geraint Thomas and Top 20 are in the top 20, stage 17 is still the stage for mountaineering kings like Quintana (Moviestar), who is the first in this stage.

“I appreciate the tournament’s refreshing effort but honestly, I don’t know what to think about what they have arranged for this 17th stage,” said Eusebia Unzue, the Movistar team manager.

Paolo Slongo, coach of the Vincenzo Nibali team, is not too keen on the improvement of BTC: “I don’t think it changes too much but if the strong crab has few teammates around, they have many advantages. Sky team is obviously a strong team and so they benefit. “

British bicycle legend Brad Wiggins commented: “It’s a good start.”

Chris Froome (Sky team), defending champion and also the main driver to do the job reluctantly, supporting teammate Geraint Thomas to protect the yellow shirt in stage 17

Due to finishing in 3rd place, Geraint Thomas not only protected the yellow jersey firmly but also increased the distance with Tom Dumoulin to approximately 2 minutes (1:59 seconds) and teammate Chris Froome 2 minutes 31 seconds in the final ranking.

Historically, TDF 1996 has had a length of only 46km, but at that time, BTC had to shorten the distance of racing because of snow.

At the same time when they published the first image of the 917 Concept design which was very appealing.

Although there is not much information about the design. But Porsche says the show car is red – white created by a group of designers and engineers. This is to commemorate the airline’s first victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970.

However, with Porsche participating in the LMP1 racing segment, the 917 Concept just stopped at the concept design. Porsche did not specify when the 917 Concept was built.

As part of the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the 917 model, Porsche restored the first 917 model to its original state. It was like it was first announced on March 12, 1969, at the Geneva Motor Show.

The Porsche 917-001 debuted in white and green but at the Frankfurt Motor Show that same year. It was changed to Gulf’s Racing’s famous orange and blue color. After Porsche won the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1970, the car was modified by Hans Herrmann and Richard Attwood in September 1970.

NASCAR racing – American specialty

Although NASCAR is inferior to these tournaments in both brand and reputation. There is one thing that this racing tournament does better than any other sport in the world. It helps fans see the race in the most authentic way.

NASCAR will launch a new digital dashboard on the cars. These panels are tablets attached directly to the vehicle and allow riders to track a wide range of activities. This new technology will be a great thing for riders because it gives them more important information about the car so that they can master the steering wheel better.

Not only insiders. But also fans will benefit from this improvement. Because they will have the opportunity to see information similar to what riders see in the car.

This is the clearest example of NASCAR’s closeness to its fans. Viewers feel that they are also an important part of the subject and of course the new technology will help the race to gain points. NASCAR will also allow public broadcast of radio dialogue from the teams throughout the race and fans will love this.

Imagine if Jeff Gordon was your favorite driver. For example, you could hear everything he said in the car all the way. NASCAR always mounts the camera inside the car so not only the voice but the image.

In addition, NASCAR helps fans get very close to their riders at an unprecedented level. On any race, a fan can climb into a pit lane or parking area for hours or even days.

NASCAR viewers have the right to appear at such places in the grading stage, test races and even the official race. NASCAR allows fans to enter the pit with riders and their cars in pre-race events. Then, once the race begins, some of them can stay right in the parking area

Characteristics of cast wheels on motorcycles

On racing motorcycles, the power, control and tires are closely related. These factors had a huge growth in the early 1970s. And they became a reality in the 80s.

Steel frames replaced with aluminum beams, capacity increased from 100 to 120 then 140 codes. force, the tire usually changes to a smooth tire, then the tire has a radial circle.

An important part of the accessory package, the core factor affecting these elements is the casting ring. It was born in the 1970s.

In 1975, Giacomo Agostini brought a bike equipped with a Yamaha OW-23 casting rim to the podium in the Grand Prix for a 500 cc bike. Crisscrossed brimmed spokes quickly became irrelevant.

Spokes always need to be clean, shiny, no rust, so they require careful and regular care. Molded rims require less maintenance, are strong, and make motorcycles fashionable.

Thanks to the outstanding advantages, the cast rim has gone beyond motorcycle racing and became popular on the street. Light gear with changes in structure help improve performance, giving a completely different driving experience. The driver easily perceives the change or feedback from the improved suspension.

The elegant Laverda Jota 1975 with cast wheels made by Italians or Kawasaki Z1-R once fascinated the car enthusiasts because the sporty style also uses cast wheels.

Although preferable, cast wheels are not without problems. Metal has tiny holes that can allow compressed air to pass through. Several remedies have been proposed, using tubeless tires, or changing rim materials and methods.

Casting rims sometimes appear small cracks. This is the reason why Robert Dunlop crashed in the Isle of Man TT 1994 race. At that time, people checked the wheel, the results showed that some of them appeared cracks. After Dunlop’s accident, some riders required regular X-ray wheel inspections once a year.

In terrain racing, cast rims have never been superior. Although sturdy, they can crack or break when a vehicle hits a tree, and once broken, fixing them is not easy.

Lewis Hamilton: The greatest of the great racers?

After 69 seasons, the structure of the steering wheel has changed a lot, and comparisons between the ages are almost impossible.

Today’s racing cars are masterpieces of engineering rather than rudimentary to the point of not having a seatbelt like that of Fangio. Perhaps that was a factor that made Fangio great. He has won the world champions five times, in the face of death at every corner.

To win the world in a dominant race is not just to defeat your teammates. In the period 2000-2004, Michael Schumacher was the unmoved component, and the number one driver in his racing team – like Fangio in his day. Hamilton did not. He struggled with Fernando Alonso at McLaren (2007), as well as Nico Rosberg at Mercedes (2014-16).

Hamilton’s victory over Vettel this season is also a sign of greatness. Both Fangio and Schumacher won the championship without having to compete with a driver who won the world championship four times the way Hamilton made Vettel so mediocre. Of course, Mercedes is still marginally better than Ferrari in terms of engine competitiveness, but Vettel is clearly underperforming, and making more mistakes when compared to Hamilton.

Many people have compared the Hamilton – Vettel duo with Ronaldo – Messi. Vettel has a natural talent, has dominated Red Bull for four consecutive seasons, and is compared to compatriot Michael Schumacher, before being awakened by Hamilton and surpassed by great effort and will. Vettel is quite quiet, and tends to preserve privacy as much as Messi, while Hamilton is a polished face, known to many famous entertainment stars. And like Ronaldo, Hamilton rarely let his personal life affect his performance on the track.

Ronaldo once asserted that “I am number one, number two, and number three”, and always aspire to conquer milestones. Hamilton didn’t “devour” that, but he always believed that he would do it in a very natural way, and enjoy it. With the frequency of 10 championship/ season in 5 seasons with Mercedes, he can completely balance the record of 91 championships and 7 world championships that Schumacher holds after completing his current contract. now with Silver Arrow.

And perhaps, it was the best time for him to think of the 8th star, the undisputed position of the greatest driver in history.
