Everyone knows about Senna vs Prost. We don’t need to go into that. Both were epic drivers, for very different reasons. However, very rarely do people take an opportunity to compare qualifying laps between the two drivers side by side.
However, take a look at this video from 1989, during the Japanese Grand Prix. Senna, who was known as the master of qualifying, out-paced his teammate Prost by 1.7 seconds in the same car. That’s another lifetime in racing terms.
When you’re a Formula 1 fan, one of the nice things about having uncompetitive teams is that they allow the media more access to their pit garages. That’s just because the cars were so off the pace, there wouldn’t be much information for competing teams that they would want to steal for their cars.
I found a video of what the 2013 Mclaren and 2013 Caterham pit crews were doing on the cars during a Friday night. Both cars were pretty horrible, so we get to see the mechanics actually working on the cars!
Check it out before FOM nicks the video.
Formula E. Home of the all electric formula car racing series, and all the ex-Formula 1 driving talent that you can get your hands on. The first race is coming in September, and so I’ve been doing a bit to find more information about the cars.
We’re coming up on the 20th anniversary of Aryton Senna’s tragic passing. You can read all about respectful tributes of this solemn day in motorsport. However, what I wanted to do was share something a bit more uplifting.
Watching Aryton’s Senna’s first test in a Formula 1 car. Testing for Williams, Mclaren and Toleman. Senna had only started gracing the world of Formula 1, and the hearts of racers for generations.
People have been complaining about the sounds of the 2014 F1 cars for a while, myself included. However, if you can’t fix it, feature it, right?
Sounds like some DJ is going to make a beat-track with F1 sounds. I’m not going to lie. This sounds like pretty fun idea. Can’t wait for the full track.
