Covered F1 Track by F1 Sponsors

Covered F1 Track by F1 Sponsors

After the rain off fiasco's of a start under safety car due to rain or total regular wash outs at tracks in Europe and Malaysia etc; I think its about time that race circuits themselves should start a new program of getting the race circuits under cover! 


This does not mean the track won't get wet if it is done right! First there could be computer controlled glazing panels that could be opened and closed electrically, controlled by the race directors, to actually allow a certain amount of rain to land on the track. Its not hard to do or measure!

I have a green house with automatic sensing of conditions and automatic control of roofing ventilation and rain panels. (Even the rain is collected and fed to an automatic watering system)!

This could be modified to work for F1 tracks to avoid deadly wet conditions - thus saving lives and reducing accident repair costs to F1 teams and circuits caused by crashes, otherwise avoidable, that are caused by conditions being too wet!

Additionally, this idea would improve cash flow for the race circuits themselves, via getting the rain canopy over the track, to be paid for by F1 sponsors.

Even dog-track style - overhead pit-lane style CCTV cameras could be could be mounted in the underside of an apex type roofing construction, to improve the race TV coverage. We could even have 24 (or more) cameras, that will follow each car round the whole circuit!

What do you think? Is this a reasonable and logical idea? Please comment!

Race. 

Idea for covered F1 track, paid for by f1 sponsors!
This would stop fiasco's like today's race and Qualifying sessions like we had in Japan!
Click here to read more and please comment on what you think!


The Japanese qualifying and race start grid ruined due to rain!

Yes, its good that we have rain to give us more unpredictable races, but not at the massive danger and cost to life and limb, not to mention miserable crowds who will be dissuaded from attending future F1 venues. This covered track (and weather proofing covered audience seating and viewing areas, could improve attendance at F1 venues and therefore improve income for the F1 circuits!

*****************************

Today's race reminds me why I prefer to watch at home, in the warmth and comfort of my office sitting room. I have a prime VIP reserved seat! No driving or parking hassle, no travel or air-fares, no track tickets to buy, no-hotel expenses, no track-side extortionate food and drink expenses and .... I'm dry! Look at that F1 track side audience, don't they all look miserable!

Mercedes deny Schumacher ultimatum | Sport | BigPond News

Bums on Fire!

Do they lie? -  'Without naming their source', (Oh yea), Bild said Schumacher was given an ultimatum to improve in 2011 or have his three-year contract, reported to be worth 63 million euros ($A90 million), terminated after just two years. His contract with Mercedes expires in 2013.

Mercedes deny Schumacher ultimatum | Sport | BigPond News

I get annoyed when people keep knocking schumacher for nothing, (well its not for nothing actually, it is because of their own ignorance), as with any F1 driver he's doing his best. That's all you can ask of any sportsman, especially if he or she is being competitive, which is the whole point isn't it?

People are missing a main point, that this 41 year old is in fantastic shape and one of the top contenders in F1. He should be getting accolades for still being able to perform at a world class level at his age. He's a true master, as are all the drivers in F1.

If anyone doubts Schuey's ability, as I write today, an hour before the start of the Suzuka race, there are 14 other top world class F1 drivers who'd give their right arm to be in 10th for the start of Suzuka.

As this article says - Norber Haug, a director of Mercedes' competition department.
Haug said, 'We're still a very tight-knit unit. For me, Michael is just as good if not better than he was. He's relaxed and concentrated. He doesn't need me or anyone else to stand up for him.

'We're happy with the work he is putting in.'

F1 2010 JAPANESE GRAND PRIX SUZUKA

JAPANESE GRAND PRIX

Venue: Suzuka.
Date: Sunday 10 October.
Lap length: 3.608 miles.
Race laps: 53.
2009 winner: Sebastian Vettel. (Red Bull).
First grand prix: 1987.

Suzuka F1 Race Summary 10/10/10.
Driver-of-the-race for this F1 fan is Lewis Hamilton, for hanging in there through taking a 5 position setback due to having to change a gearbox, then still fighting through loosing gears towards the end of the race; Only having 4th through to 7th gears, with the car making noises at every gear-change, Lewis must have been thinking 'at any moment the car could lock up with a seized gearbox'. If you need an example of how to just keep pushing and never giving up, then this is it!

Wow! What a team Red Bull is. You've got to remember, that from a company background point of view, Red Bull is an Energy Drinks Company, beating the likes of dedicated motor companies like McLaren, Ferrari, Mercedes, Renault, Williams, Sauber, Lotus, et al at their own game!
