F1 racing, Spanish Grand Prix 2020: The temperature and tire problem in Barcelona

On Friday, August 14, 2020, the sixth race of the 2020 season officially took place at the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona racetrack in Spain. 

Vettel will have a more positive record when the 4-time runner has only got 10 points after 5 races this season.

The fifth stage of the season is the race that marks the 70th anniversary of the F1 races on the Silverstone track in England over the weekend once again creating the appeal for the fans.

It seemed that victory was easy for the Mercedes duo, but with the daring and extremely smart tactics plus the setup of the W11 is not really compatible with the tires on the track in England, Red Bull helped his main driver, Verstappen, win the final, although he was only fourth when the race started.

Except for the first race that had to give up, the Dutch driver’s 4 next races were present on the podium with 1 first place, 2 second place and 1 third prize, it can be said. Verstappen is quite stable at the moment.

Returning to the Circuit de Catalunya with the familiarity of almost all racers, including in official competition and in pre-season trials, another spot on the winning podium for Verstappen is completely.

A tire explosion during the fourth race of Hamilton and Bottas led to Mercedes having to recalibrate the car setup for the 5th race. However, the new settings did not seem to be doing the job as expected, both Mercedes cars wear their tires quite quickly and affect the strategy of the whole team.

However, with the bravery of the last 6-time world champion, Hamilton won the final second place to maintain his leading advantage in conquering the 7th championship in his career.

In Catalunya, although the teams have many parameters, the current race is not a small challenge. After two races struggling with tire problems, Mercedes could once again be beaten by Red Bull if similar situations continue.

In order to maintain its advantage with having a pretty perfect battle vehicle, Mercedes needs to better understand the characteristics of the Pirelli tires at the moment.

The weather in Spain at the moment is very hot and the temperature of the track is up to 50oC. In fact, the racing teams only tried and competed here around February and May, this return, with the current weather situation being a big challenge for the teams.

A blurred Ferrari race when Vettel failed to do anything and he could not earn himself any points. With a one-pitstop strategy, Ferrari did everything to do for Leclerc and the final result could only be a modest 4th place when the race is over.

With a Vettel with no motivation to play and a car unable to compete for the winning positions, it would be too difficult for Ferrari to have a strong record this season. In the current situation, they are still competing for third place with rivals that Ferrari never seems to mind.

Perez returned after 2 weeks of isolation due to his positive Covid-19 virus. That will probably give the Racing Point even more power once their familiar steering wheel is back. The race in the middle top becomes hostile again when it is predicted that the chases will continue, overtaking and will also contribute significantly to the final result of the race.

Ferrari’s Vettel and McLaren’s Carlos Sainz will have a new chassis for their car in Spain, hoping Vettel will have a better performance when the four-time rider VDT only gets 10 points after 5 races.

The C1-C2-C3 (Hard-Medium-Soft) tire combo will be supplied by Pirelli to the teams in the Spanish GP. Tactics will be able to 1 or 2 pitstop depending on the specific situation after the test runs for 2 days Friday and Saturday. Mercedes will still be the first choice, but the track developments as well as the team’s tactics will be something worth seeing in the teams’ return to Catalunya in the 2020 season.

Looking forward to F1 racing news schedule (Part 1)

Just a few months ago, it was unthinkable, but then the Formula 1 (F1) season finally took place. Even fans are waiting for F1 to announce the full schedule after 8 races are confirmed earlier.

Football today. Football news. Football schedule. Live football. Bruno recreates Ronaldo’s achievements at MU. Barca reached an agreement with Lautaro Martinez. Real close to the throne.

No spectators, a strict inspection program, members of the racing teams are limited exposure and implement social spacing measures to limit the risk of corona virus spread. However, all that matters is that the season finally takes place, with the Austrian Grand Prix opening over the weekend at the Austrian Red Bull Ring.

8 stages of the opening race

According to F1’s initial schedule before the Covid-19 pandemic, there were 22 races, which started in Australia on March 15, but then the worldwide crisis caused some of the first races. delayed or canceled. Instead, F1 hopes to be able to organize from 15 to 18 stages and for the immediate future, the first 8 sections extending from early July to early September have been announced in Europe.

According to F1’s plan, the races take place in Europe, Asia and then to the Americas. The problem is that the ability to organize events after September is being put in front of a big question mark due to the limited time fund, many countries have not resumed air transport. That is to say, by announcing the first eight races in Europe, it was about talking about losses and profits, F1 at least guaranteed that they could call this the 2020 season.

As you know, the season’s opening race in Austria took place over the weekend. According to the previously announced race schedule, there will be 2 consecutive races at the same track, at the Red Bull Ring in Austria and at Silverstone in England. Obviously, F1 does not call this the two stages of the Austrian Grand Prix and the two stages of the British Grand Prix. Exactly there are 2 stages of Grand Prix in each race of Red Bull Ring and Silverstone but the name is completely different. Accordingly, the next race in Austria will be Styrian Grand Prix, named after the region with the track there. The second race at Silverstone is the 70th Anniversary Grand Prix, set to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the first F1 race in 1950.

Three years passed and Williams-Honda dominated with a superior chassis/turbo combination, but Alain Prost retained his title at the end of the season in Adelaide after Williams’s teammates Nigel Mansell and Piquet competed with each other throughout the year and Nigel received great disappointment over a tire explosion in Australia.

By 1994, Michael Schumacher had won the first of the seven world titles on the Benetton when Williams won the title of the best racing team after the death of Ayrton Senna’s season and struggled with aerodynamics on the FW16.

Five years later, Mika Hakkinen successfully defended the world title in a McLaren after a choking race with Eddie Irvine. However, that was when the lead driver of Ferrari, Schumacher broke his leg at Silverstone and missed the race.

Since then, in the last 21 years, it happened only once when Lewis Hamilton of McLaren won the world title in 2008, when he passed Felipe Massa by more than 1 point in the last leg in Brazil, and Ferrari won the championship. world for the best racing team.

And now

In a time when there were many big changes in F1 such as the budget limit, it was difficult for us to have an equal race for the riders. If so, the only way to do that is to spin the riders on the teams during the season.

This year, the best thing is that the season can still take place after a long period of stagnation. However, no matter how excited, in reality only one car can compete. In other words, the world title probably does not fall outside the names of Hamilton or Valterri Bottas are Mercedes.

There’s no denying Hamilton is an excellent racer, but is he on a higher level than the other competitors? Instead of giving an answer, Hamilton’s best driving in seven consecutive racing seasons helped him get closer to Schumacher’s record of seven-time championship. Remember, Schumacher also drove the best car in 11 F1 seasons, and thus, he won 91 races.

To make it easier to imagine, we compare tennis. Imagine him having thousands of hours of practice, taking care of himself, making sacrifices and eventually making it into the Top 100 in the world. He found himself on the main tour, at the Grand Slam draws but when he got there, he had to meet Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer with a wooden racket. That’s almost like the situation where 90% of F1 drivers find themselves having to face off against Hamilton or Bottas.

After all, Hamilton has dominated F1 for five of the past six years. In 2016 alone, Nico Rosberg defeated him, but the German driver was his teammate at Mercedes. And so, once again, there’s all reason to say that, aside from Hamilton and Bottas, the F1 season seems to have ended.

Formula 1 racing tournament in 2020: There is no one besides Mercedes (Part 1)

This season, only one vehicle has shown the ability to win the Formula 1 (F1) races. And this means that 90% of the drivers have no chance of winning the title. Could history not be otherwise?

The Styrian Grand Prix is ​​certainly still fascinating because of what happens to the Ferrari team, as their two riders eliminate themselves before the actual race begins.

An interesting question arises: In the 70-year F1 history, only one person has won more than one world championship with the car not winning the best team title in the same year. Who is that?

Upstream history

It is difficult, but not impossible, because since having the best team title in 1958, about 8 years after the title for riders, only 8 people have done that. It took 15 years before Jackie Stewart won the title with the Tyrrell team, while Lotus drivers Ronnie Peterson and Emerson Fittipaldi shared more victories and the Colin Chapman team won the title of best team. Best.

Three years later, James Hunt did the same for McLaren in the epic 1976 season and was made into the Rush movie, when Ferrari won the championship for the best racing team. However, Hunt’s victory was also helped by the fact that Niki Lauda was absent from the important race after the accident at the Nurburgring race.

For the next five years, Brabham’s Nelson Piquet won as Williams drivers including defending champions Alan Jones and Carlos Reutemann won the title of best race team.

That fact happened three consecutive years in the early 1980s, right after the days of using Cosworth engines came to an end and high-priced turos appeared. Keke Rosberg only won the first stage with the Williams FW08, but it was enough for him to win the title in the year when Ferrari’s 126C2 was classy but Gilles Villeneuve died at the Zolder race, Belgium (1982) and teammate Didier Pironi had an accident during a test run and ended his career at Hockenheim.

Piquet won again in 1983 to win the second of its three titles in just the second year in Brabham with a BMW Renault, while Ferrari won the championship for the best racing team.

Formula 1 racing: The era of reserve drivers (Part 2)

Red Bull/AlphaTauri

Sergio Sette Camera was seen as a substitute driver for both Red Bull Racing and Alpha Tauri earlier this year. However, the situation is complicated by Brazil’s commitment to attend the Super Formula in Japan and the restriction of travel may prevent him from participating in the race at the weekend. Since then, the reserve role has been for Sebastien Buemi, who recently raced in F1 with Toro Rosso in 2011. In case Red Bull / AlphaTauri needs a racer, they can pick up Pierre Gasly or Daniil Kvyat and The position of these riders will be reserved.

Alfa Romeo’s driver Antonio Giovinazzi has become the official reserve driver for Ferrari, and the Italians will be ready if needed. The team also had Pascal Wehrlein on the reserve list though the last time the German racer ran in F1 was with Sauber in 2017.


Woking-based racing team had Serge Sirotkin on standby last year. However, after signing an engine supply contract with Mercedes in 2021, they agreed to use Brackley riders. So Vandoorne and Gutierrez are both available. Racing Point also has a similar agreement. And also do not forget that Alonso still kept in touch with McLaren despite playing in the Indy 500 and therefore, the presence of the Spaniard can not be ruled out.

The reserve list is dominated by young and test runners, notably with Guanyu Zhou and Christian Lundgaard. Therefore, Hulkenberg is clearly a better option for Renault, while Sirotkin has also had ties with Renault in the past.

Racing Point

Silverstone-based racing teams do not have their own riders and for several years, they had an agreement with Mercedes. In addition, the team is still in good relationship with Hulkenberg to see him as a reserve rider if needed.

Alfa Romeo

Robert Kubica is the official reserve for the Hinwil-based racing team, and the Polish driver will also be summoned if Giovinazzi takes over the position at Ferrari. Last year, IndyCar racer Marcus Ericsson was considered a substitute last year and tested the team in Austria.


Louis Deletraz and Pietro Fittipaldi are reserve riders to be considered.


In recent times, Grove-based racing teams have approached Mercedes drivers like Esteban Ocon and George Russell. However, earlier this year, they officially announced F2 star Jack Aitken on the reserve list.

Formula 1 racing: The era of reserve drivers (Part 1)

With the Formula 1 (F1) season going to take place in Austria in July, the coronavirus crisis makes the reserve drivers suddenly get special attention because it is very likely that a certain driver will positive for Covid-19 and required isolation.

In fact, Formula 1 boss Chase Carey mentioned this issue in a recent video interview when asked how they would react to positive cases at the end of the race.

As usual, some teams have their own reserve riders, some can call a driver from a sister team, and others have to borrow third party troops.

In addition, free riders are ready to race at any time when they have a lot of experience such as Fernando Alonso, Nico Hulkenberg and Sergey Sirotkin.

However, except for some teams who always have reserve riders on the same team every weekend of racing, others are at home waiting, meaning they are ready to catch a last-minute flight if needed. The theory is that, but the current situation is more complicated because any reserve driver needs to have the latest negative test results and must comply with the strict travel restrictions that F1 will apply to. all employees.

In addition, commercial flights are currently severely restricted, and therefore, it will not be easy for a reserve rider to board the plane on Thursday or Friday. This will force teams to ensure that their reserve team is present at each location and ready when notified. In return, they also have to compromise with these riders because often they only race with simulation equipment in the factory.

It is also a matter of time because there is a big difference between whether you need to find a driver on Friday night before the weekend race, or the week before the next leg, when you have more time to prepare. .

Reserve points Mercedes: Stuttgart Formula E driver, who used to race in F1 with McLaren in 2018, was officially named on the reserve list earlier this year. The team can also call Esteban Gutierrez, who had a recent F1 season with Haas in 2016.

Roborace: the Formula One for self-driving cars

 Roborace brand currently has two vehicles in its fleet namely the DevBot and Robocar. The company is development robot using a platform for testing new technology and software. Unlike Robocar, though, DevBot has room for a driver as well.

“We’re focused now on DevBot and using that because the development platform, but the target is to be ready to take that software and use it in Robocar. We’re running with DevBot 2.0 in Season Alpha, which gives us the opportunity to use humans within those competition formats,” said Balcombe.

In recent years they’ve done human versus machine competitions. This season they are looking at experimenting with having human in for part of the race and AI for the second part, while some are pure AI races only.

“So when we’ve done human versus machine competitions, it’s been really interesting, No. 1, to see the human’s reaction, that they want to beat the robot. There’s that competitive element there. And then, No. 2, from the AI teams, who really want to get as close to and then eventually beat the human drivers. So they’re probably about 5-10% away at the moment, before we get to the human level of performance,” said Balcombe.

The racers have exactly the same types of sensors and computers that you’ll find in the autonomous-vehicle industry that’s being developed by companies such as Waymo, for example. They’re running lidar, radar, machine-vision cameras, sonar.

“We have an accurate GPS inertial system that’s so accurate you’ll do missile guidance with it. So we have export restrictions on those products, some of those products. But yeah, it’s exactly the same as you would use on the road. And that’s really key for us is that the technology that’s developed in competition here at our racetrack transfers to that road industry.”

COVID-19 turns F1 increasingly pale: This season there is no podium!

The victory podium after the end of each race is a familiar image of Formula One, but not in the 2020 season.

The Board of F1 Federation has just announced the ceremony standing on the winning platform (podium) to celebrate the success of the top 3 riders often found in tournaments will be discontinued this season. Mr. Ross Brawn said this is the necessary solution in COVId-19 season.

The F1 competition season will begin next month in Australia, July 5. Here, the Organizing Committee applied many measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Therefore the familiar act of giving champagne to the three riders to go to the top to open the celebration was abandoned.

The first 8 races will take place between empty stands. At the same time, the areas reserved for each team are closely monitored to prevent infection.

Members of each team are also tested for COVID-19 regularly and must ensure they adhere to social spacing guidelines.

Regarding the cancellation of podium, the Organizing Committee is expected to use another method: ” There is an opinion that cars will be lined up along the track and riders will stand in front of the car. 

We can’t give titles when no one is in close contact, but we will find a way. We even plan to give the title on TV“.

The Board of F1 Federation admits that these limitations may extend to unknown, but it is definitely the end of this year. 

Besides, they also hope to organize the 2020 season with 15-18 races, although there have been more Grand Prixs in Azerbaijan, Singapore and Japan canceled last weekend. The Grand Prix in Sao Paulo is also under threat due to the COVID-19 epidemic situation in Brazil.

Hamilton criticized the F1 community

The reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton was unhappy when the F1 community fell silent over the death of black George Floyd in the US.

“I see you being silent, among whom are top stars and you choose to be silent in this story of injustice,” Hamilton wrote on Instagram on  June 1.

In the second post, Mercedes main driver wrote: “I am not on the side of bandits, who are burning buildings. I support peaceful protesters. There will be no peace until people who are viewed as leaders who make change “.

Mercedes then spoke up, supporting their riders. After Hamilton’s post, many other F1 riders called for justice for blacks.  “

Share with Leclerc, race driver Williams George Russell wrote on Twitter : “We all have the right to speak up for the right. Until now, I do not know how to speak up. As Leclerc said, I find it difficult. I have a hard time understanding what is seen on news or social media right now, but ultimately, even though you may not be comfortable speaking, don’t be silent. justice in this world. This is the time we need to unite to eliminate racism”.
