    80 miles? That deserves a slightly more exuberant 'woohoo' or maybe even a 'yee' followed by a 'hah' and perhaps a tentative air punch.

    I always knew it would be the kill switch. Er, and if it proves not to be so I always knew that too.

    Today's numbers were bought to you to day by R-teck welding equipment and one of pea's washers to fix the nearly pointless side stand on the kaff IMG_20190606_175126.jpg

    So I begin to wonder -
    • What the exact regs are around F1 Brake By Wire.
    • What software/hardware controls the system in this case as applied to the rear (i.e. non common as compared to spec engine ecu?)
    • How this automates & expands what McLaren were found to be doing ages back via this sneaky pic from the Nurburgring of their 'Fiddle Brake'.
    tumblr_mlzkk6dRUP1rb2fzoo1_1280.jpg

    'In doing that you’re putting more torque through the outside rear wheel and less through the inside, and that puts a yaw moment on the car to steer the car around the corner. In corners where the car had a lot of understeer, then if you applied the brake steer, you would reduce the understeer.'​

    It says at that link that such systems were subsequently deemed illegal in period, but I don't know the current perspective. Elsewhere on the Motorsport page there's other discussion of a modern front end development -

    'That is a front suspension linkage which, past a certain threshold of steering lock, levers the nose of the car down. In-car footage from Bottas at the Monaco hairpin showed it very clearly. Looking at the pivoted brackets on the suspension legs of both the Ferrari and Mercedes gives a pretty good clue of how, up to a certain point of steering, the suspension loads feed straight through that bracket to the wheel hub, in a conventional fashion. But once past that steering angle, the suspension leg forces the bracket to pivot downwards, effectively pulling the whole front of the car down.' Linky.​

    It's what I read anywah.

    Now that's half the lean angle. Like I said way back when we did Chunk, the only thing that seemed not immediately/directly to hand was washers, so :lol3
    I knew they reminded me of something I'd seen :rofl

    Had a drop by from DBD testing the Kaff.

    Standing outside I could pretty much hear him all the way back to town... :imaposer

    A lucky result for us today.

    The pressure facing the red team must be massive.

    In air head news the Kaff felt flat in top gear. only just getting to 7k revs in top. Less than two weeks to france:lol3:lol3:lol3

    ^^^ Not lucky. Dem da rules* :rofl

    As described in the intro here the stewards reaction seems delineated by the narrow regs which define a racing move. If it's deemed to be an 'unsafe return' then the penalty is their only option. In a sense one could ref it to the similar 5 sec's applied to MV for unsafe release @ Monaco?

    I think SV's head position in the pic says something?

    [​IMG]

    But anyone wearing the red would disagree** with the penalty, and for my mind Vettel didn't take it with what I would consider to be a 'champions grace'. To me (in my humble uniformed remote 'opinion') it's a behaviour (the radio messages/sign swap/reticent to the podium etc.) that's intended to shift pressure from him, & his team.

    And if you take the Prost view that racing takes place off the track too then it's a pretty heavy power move to try & regain the initiative & momentum by redirecting the opprobrium?***

    Interesting that The Kaff seemed flat in top gear? From what I heard seemed to run thru/ough the revs in the utha gears... :1drink I'm sure it'll all be resolved in time for the Beezumph :lol3 What's the voyage Francais? (club?).

    I guess you have continental recovery? :rofl

    170 odd miles since last dropout. Still too early to be entirely sure but good nonetheless.
