    Formula One 2012

    OK, time to start this up, with car launches starting in a few days and testing coming up soon as well.

    The new nose rule has apparently led to some, uhhh, interesting noses. Domenicali has already gone on record saying the Ferrari will not be pleasing to most eyes.


    Testing Dates & Sites:

    7-10 Feb: Jerez
    21-24 Feb: Circuit de Catalunya
    1-4 Mar: Circuit de Catalunya
    1-3 May: Mugello Circuit



    Speculative drawings and actual photos to date (will follow up with more as they come out):

    2012 Rules/Changes:


    Just go here: http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/category/...2012-f1-rules/

    ...or here: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/9...what-they-mean



    There's also this nice summary from formula1.com:

    2012 season changes

    Compared to the major changes introduced for 2011 - DRS, KERS, Pirelli tyres etc. - those for the 2012 season may seem relatively minor. Some, however, will still have a significant impact…

    No blown diffusers
    The FIA is clamping down on engine mapping and exhaust positioning to minimise designers’ use of exhaust gases in a car’s aerodynamics, effectively outlawing blown diffusers.

    Crash tests
    There will be tougher side impact testing and new cars must now pass all required FIA crash tests prior to any on-track testing.

    Safety car
    During a safety-car period, all lapped cars will be allowed to unlap themselves and then join the back of the pack, ensuring a clean re-start without slower cars impeding those racing for the leading positions.

    Driving etiquette
    Drivers may no longer leave the track without a justifiable reason, i.e. cutting a chicane on reconnaissance laps or in-laps to save time and fuel, and drivers may no longer move back onto the racing line having moved off it to defend a position.

    Race suspensions
    There will now be a maximum race time of four hours to ensure that a lengthy suspension of a race does not result in a race that could run up to eight hours if left unregulated. Cars which were in the pit lane when the race was suspended will now be allowed to re-join the cars on the grid in the position they were in at the time of the race suspension.

    Testing
    In addition to the established pre-season tests, one three-day test will be carried out during the season. Formerly there was none.

    Tyre allocation
    All tyres allocated to a driver may now be used on the first day of practice. Formerly only three sets were permitted on the opening day of the Grand Prix weekend.

    Subscribed. 24 hours of Daytona has always signaled the start of the racing season to me and I get excited to see the new unveils. Do you hit up the watch parties Mandingo? I think I promised you a beer in the Austin thread.

    Interesting exhaust position. I also like how they blocked the diffuser from view.

    #f1 There are so many legality question marks around 2012 F1 cars apparently, that FIA's Charlie Whiting is going to attend Jerez test...

    Also, an article (I just skimmed it--too early...) with all manner of dorkery and science behind the MP4-27.

    Well, my preference is fast & pretty, but I'll take fast & ugly any day over slow & ugly. That said, I don't like the hump, but this Ferrari doesn't look bad overall to me, and better than that abortion of a Dallara. That thing is a total letdown.

    Those are prototype cars.

    Here are a couple new Indycars in their new livieries, which look much better than those F1 cars.....

    Helio Castroneves.



    Mike Conway..



    Will Power..

    I thought there might be some chicanery/gamesmanship going on with some of these launches...and it looks like there is, or course. Expect some surprises at the first test, and probably more at Melbourne:

    If anyone is interested in playing BadgerGP.com's Fantasy F1 game, (general info HERE, official rules and description HERE, but basically you're given a salary cap and have to pick 3 teams and 3 drivers for the season with a few changes allowed; as well as predict the pole winner, fastest lap, and 1st, 2nd, & 3rd for each race) I've created a mini-league where we can all compete against each other in addition to the larger main competition.

    If you'd like to play, just create an account and PM me here, and I'll give you the mini-league password to join.

    Here's a story & video re: the Mercedes W03 shaking down at Silverstone. FWIW.

    www.f1fanatic.co.uk/2012/02/16/mercedes-...

    Someone tweeted this video as "proof" that the W03 would have a stepped nose, but I can't tell either way.

    Well, I can't tell if that is stepped or not, but $#@! do I love the raw sound of an F1 car. TV neuters them so much.

    Yep. It's amazing how different they sound up close, shifting up & down, etc. On tv they sound almost like IndyCars. Not in person.
