Here are the different scenearios where Vettel or Alonso will win this year Formula 1 championship.
Any scenario where Vettel is fourth or higher gives Vettel the title.
A win for Alonso would give him the title if Vettel is fifth or lower
If Alonso is second, he would be champion if Vettel is 8th or lower
If Alonso is third with Vettel lower than ninth, Alonso is champion
The final race is held at the Interlagos circuit in Brasil, a circuit that have gave us many incredible races rising emotions to the top. Just to mention a few from the near past, Raickonen Championship in 2007 and Hamilton’s in 2008 where the tittle was not decided until the last corner of the race.
Kun Aguero is a Premier League player known by his immense talent as a footballer. Just last year his scored one of the most dramatic goals in this league history.
But it seems that his talent is not only limited to a football field, as you will see in the next video he really knows how to handle a powerful car. F1 driver Nico Rosberg took him around the track for a recognition lap and after that the Kun took the steering will even on a more powerful car, enjoy…
Because in motoracing a big part of your success depends on many factors that are out of your control, luck is a key element if you are a racing driver. In this case the driver in the video obviously had not luck at all.
Unfortunately for Taki Inoue luck seems to turn its back on his career as a racing driver.He was one of those drivers who are know because they’ve set the worst records in the sport.
He have a record that will be difficult to match or pass by any other driver, even if they wanted to do so. Taki was hit by the safety car twice in different races; the first time was in Monaco in 1995 and the second time, three months later at Hungary. It is very weird seeing a safety car colliding with a racing car, marshall or driver due to the training and expertise of the man behind the steering wheel, but in this case Taki’s lack of luck made this unusual record possible.
Taki Inoue is actually very active in twitter so here is his twitter profile, check it out and follow him. He have great sense of humor and twits about actual formula one, always trying to look it from the funny side.
Tom Cruise who we all know by his passion for Scientology, show us in this video his other passion for doing risky things. To be honest I was quite impressive with the way he handle the car but also I have to say that it doesn’t seem this is the first time he have tried this. Or at least the way they edited the video make us believe that he just had one spin, when I know for sure he had more than that.
After the run on the F1 he then climbed into a helicopter and did a loop, which is a very risky thing to do in these type of aircraft. One thing we know for sure is that this man like “risky business”… pa ra ca tam shushh!
A Formula One car have a very stretch relationship with fighter aircraft when it comes to design and technology. There are three notable similarities
The use of top of the industry technology
The small space used to place the different component
The use of wings as a key element for their functionality
This last point is critical for both machines. Engineers and designers make use of them to obtain and manage air force flow. In airplanes the air force is used to push the aircraft up, but in F1 cars they use them to push the car down and keep it attached to the floor while taking corners at high speed.
The down force produce by an f1 car is so big that it is possible to flip them over if the car is going at least at 175 km/h and it will keep running attached to the ceiling. To prove how important wings are for f1 cars here is a video that shows Mark Webber loosing his front wing and catching air for several meters.
And here is an animation of a formula one car running upside down. I think it is time now to demonstrate this fact in a real scenario with a real f1 car and a driver on it. It will be a great show for sure.
In my spare time I browse through a lot of stuff about Formula One. For some time now I know that the Monza circuit is not only the circuit that we see year after year in the gran prix weekend, the circuit has an even a bigger oval circuit that use to held races in the past.Yesterday I decided to look for a satellite view of the Monza circuit and is amazing that at first view the first thing anyone could notice is a big oval instead of the traditional path where F1 cars and many other categories currently run their races. If you are an F1 fanatic and think you already know the Monza Circuit landscape try to figure it out in the picture above, you will notice that it is not as easy as it may seem.
Street circuits have raised a lot of emotions in the past recent years and maybe that is why lately Formula One is always considering new races to be ran at the streets of iconic cities. Singapur and Valencia are two of the fresher examples that we currently have and now even London has appear as a big candidate to have a race in the years to come.
Given the fact that in 2013 there is a big chance now that New Jersey could celebrate an F1 race, I started to think about what other big city in the United Stated could be a potential candidate to celebrate a race as well. In case you didn’t know in the past Detroit used to have a Formula 1 race from 1982 to 1988, where 3 of the 7 races were won by his excellency Ayrton Senna, 2 of them with the Lotus Team and one with Mclaren.
One city that immediately pops to my mind is Chicago Read more
holding a Formula 1 race in London. Santander bank which is a current sponsor of the British Gran Prix that will be held next week at the United Kingdom is the main entity behind this proposal. The idea of holding a Gran Prix in this legendary city has already raised some expectations around the f1 circus and fans, although many f1 journalists are skeptical about the rumors. Meanwhile there is already a video animation of the circuit. As you can see all the banners around the circuit are from Santander Bank.
Here is an interesting video that visually demonstrate which one is better between an Indy car and a Formula 1 car. Is a lap in Laguna Seca and although the formula 1 car ended up with a difference of about 4 secs if you multiply that by the number of laps in a race it would be a big difference.
