Seven factors to expect when F1 returns (Part 1)

A lot of changes are created when F1 comes back, but the attractive and fierce competition will not go away.

Teams also took advantage of the break to improve the cars. The first two test races (P1, P2) in Austria tomorrow 3/7 will reveal the strength of the teams.

The Red Bull Ring will see how Mercedes’ “three-dimensional steering system” works. During the pre-season test week, Mercedes’ discovery was the most significant. The Melbourne track in Australia may not be the right place for a “three-dimensional steering wheel”. But with the long straight lines in the Red Bull Ring, Mercedes can unleash the power of this system. And if they succeed, will the other teams protest?

Four months off is not enough for the teams to imitate Mercedes’ three-dimensional steering system, but it is enough for them to make significant improvements to the cars. Mercedes has announced they have greatly upgraded the W11.

Renault revealed that fans would find the R.S.20 completely different. Red Bull also improved the aerodynamics and upgraded Honda engines. Ferrari did not significantly change parts until the Hungarian leg. The Red Bull Ring results will show which team has improved the car better over the past four months.

Michael Schumacher in his career from 1992 to 2006 and 2010-2012 scored 221 points, but Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen were not too far behind. They are only eight times inferior in the top 10, something that can be completed in the first half of the 2020 season. Regarding the number of consecutive scoring points, Hamilton is currently holding with 33 stages from Japanese GP 2016 to France GP 2018.

Rubens Barrichello started his career in 1993 and retired in 2011, with a total of 322 starting stages. But now Raikkonen “snowman” had experience in 312 GPs before the 2020 season. If nothing changes, the Austrian GP at the Red Bull Ring will witness a new record set by the Finnish driver.

Senna led the race in all 19 of his 41 career victories, a record Hamilton also holds now after doing in Shanghai, Barcelona, ​​Monaco, Paul Ricard, and Abu Dhabi. 2019. The Grand Slam / Grand Chelem record (achieved when the driver wins the pole, the fastest lap and leads all the rounds in victory) is held by Jim Clark with 8 times.

What records to expect from F1 racing 2020? (Part 1)

In 2020, there are 22 races with many other achievements that are in danger of being broken in the next 9 months. Here are eight achievements that are easy to break in the coming season.

2020 may be the season that will see the great milestone 7 championship titles of the legendary Michael Schumacher balanced, and the one who has the opportunity to do that is Lewis Hamilton. However, the British driver’s dominance with Mercedes is in danger of not being able to maintain this year before the strong rise of rivals.

In addition, it is impossible not to mention the growing young generation and the ability to do special things. Here are 8 records that will likely be broken next season.

Schumacher’s milestone could well be knocked down this season

Hamilton is only eight points behind Schumacher’s 91 victories. With an average win rate of 9 races each year since he joined the “Silver Arrows” in 2013 (and is the only driver in history to win every season he participates in), The area will be within your reach.

F1 racing receives nearly $ 1.5 billion of restructuring

Liberty Media has made changes in its business strategy as well as “pouring money” into Formula 1 going through this extremely challenging period with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Orders must have revenue

Recently, Liberty Media, the current F1 management unit, “redistributed” its “assets” among its subsidiaries to bring money to Formula 1 during the COVID-19 pandemic. continue to have great impact on the tournament.

Liberty restructures to pour money for F1 support

The deal was made between FWON (F1’s holding company of Liberty) and SiriusXM, a communications company based in Manhattan, New York, USA, which is a subsidiary of Liberty. The main change for the deal is that the company promotes the organization of events – Live Nation, previously “in the same house” as F1, will now join SiriusXM.

In addition to the purpose of bringing more money to F1, the main reason for this decision of Liberty is because both F1 and Live Nation need to take place events to bring about revenue. However, given the current situation, both are becoming a big source of risk for the parent company. From there, Liberty was forced to “put one egg in another basket” to divide the risks evenly among its subsidiaries.

On the other hand, it is also a logical move to put a company promoting events (concerts) in conjunction with a media company, rather than on motorsport like F1.

Approximately USD 1.5 billion of assets were transferred from F1 Group to Liberty SiriusXM, totaling USD 2.8 billion assets and USD 1.3 billion outstanding loans. Of which, shares of Live Nation accounted for USD 2.6 billion in the above data.

That conversion is balanced by a net of $ 1.5 billion of net assets transferred from Liberty SiriusXM to F1 Group, including cash of $ 1.4 billion, of which 50% of which is considered as an inter-bank loan.

How to keep the racing team from bankruptcy?

Liberty expects this change will help them in the stock market related to F1 business. That brings liquidity to F1 in case the season continues to be delayed.
