A man history shall long remember. His service in the Royal Navy during and after World War 2, while often understandably overshadowed by his seven decades as Prince Consort, would have been a lifetime's worth of achievement in its self.

He was a man with a tremendous sense of duty. He also was known for his frankness and his great sense of humor. While the former sometimes ruffled the feathers of some, the later more than smoothed things over.

R.I.P. your Royal Highness.

Pit Pass / Re: Gary Anderson talks 'differentials' a real F1 race weapon
« Last post by cosworth151 on April 11, 2021, 03:15:25 PM »
That was a very interesting article. Good find, John!  :good:

Anderson mentions IndyCar using "spool" diffs. Here's a pix of the ultimate version of that. It's a display in the museum at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway showing an early 60's vintage Gasoline Alley garage. Note the rear axle assembly on the floor to the right of the car. It's a one piece, solid axle with a gear bolted up in the middle of it.

Who knew there was so much going on with this almost mystical element of race cars?   :swoon:  Not me - anyways!!!

I watched the racing, and while it sounds like the R/C cars I played with when I was little, DAMN it looks fun.

They put on a quality show, in terms of professional race coverage.

The racing itself was 'okay', but the first race, it's hard to know what to expect.  I do love that Button and Sainz Sr are in the cars themselves.  Wondering why Rosberg wasn't.

I'm looking forward to the next round.

General F1 Discussion / Re: 2021 Bahrain GP Heroes and Zeroes
« Last post by Alianora La Canta on April 05, 2021, 01:11:36 PM »
Losers: The FIA, for changing the rules mid-race and cheating everyone out of at least two good scraps as a result (Hamilton/Verstappen and Ocon/Vettel) through having double standards for part of the race. And then Michael Masi lied about it.

Winners: Everyone else for putting up with the FIA effectively invalidating everything they worked so hard to achieve without punching the responsible individual.
10
Technically, the FIA were allowed to do deep dives before - the Ferrari investigation is an example, involving at least one, and likely two separate, confiscation(s) and deep dive(s) into the 2019 engine. It was just that in practise, they only did it if they saw a surface sign that something was amiss. Another good example is the BAR 2006 car - they did a deep dive, but only when scrutineers discovered a draining problem on one car in round 4 of the season. That deep dive resulted in BAR getting disqualified for two races, but the disqualification from the round where the draining problem was discovered was the prompt.

Now, they're proposing it as a pre-emptive measure. Still perfectly legal. However, the debacle of Bahrain may will make teams dubious as to the good-faith nature of the FIA's conduct. Remember they changed the rule regarding Turn 4 three times (albeit twice in the same document) on a single weekend, the last of these during the race (and then Michael quite transparently lied about it). Add to this that the drivers were apparently barred from downtalking any aspect of F1 at the start of the weekend (a futile task, I think), and the impression given is of Stefano Domenicalli being given supreme power (well, co-supreme power with Jean Todt) without knowing how to use it for psuedopolitical effectiveness - or to the benefit of Liberty (his organisation). Chase Carey was a bit savvier. (You may wonder why I'm talking about Stefano primarily. It's because Liberty and the FIA agreed to present a united front regarding F1 last year. Jean would not have allowed himself such naive excesses; he would have selected the targets of his ire much more carefully, and then used a more precise approach in hitting them).
