Behind us is the first race of this season, which, if you are not a Lewis Hamilton fan or conditionally also Nic Rosberg, served with a dose of boredom, which caused many people to prolong their Sunday sleep in front of the TV screen or feel disappointed after a few months of eager anticipation of return. formula one, set off for a morning walk. Mercedes has become even stronger, only the balance of power behind them has changed a bit, but it would probably be more exciting to watch a game of chess at times. If the FIA and Bernie Ecclestone are not able to come up with an interesting racing formula, this time Slovenian spectators were deprived of the randomly recognizable "ULALA" by Miran Ališič, who would throw those sleepers upright, even though nothing special was happening on the track. Mord
Thus, behind us is this year's mountain speed race Lučine, where we had a lot of fun, as always, despite some mild sunburns. It is difficult to single out only one racer who impressed the most, as they all performed with passion, joy and for their own pleasure, as well as the pleasure of the spectators, risking their health, which reminded us of Primož's overturning after last year's Slavko Zorman accident in Ilirska Bistrica. Tavčar, a (fairly) new dad, at the exit of the ninth bend, which fortunately ended only with rolled sheet metal. You may have noticed stickers of your and our portal svet-hitrosti.com on some racing cars, for which I have to thank Aleš Žakl (Yugo 45), Janez Bogataj (Renault Clio) and Igor Pokorn (VW Polo 75), who kindly resigned advertising space where it would otherwise
In Formula One, we have recently witnessed a number of changes with which those responsible want to spice up races that have become artificial and uninteresting over the years. With moves such as the introduction in 2011 of a movable rear wing (DRS), which facilitates overtaking by reducing the vacuum and resistance of the rear wing, they are trying to achieve more overtaking, and since then some changes have been introduced to compensate for the not so very impressive sound of powertrains. The FIA seems to be willing to do anything and more to make racing interesting, but unfortunately they have the environment, safety, and money in mind. In particular, the fact that the development of racing cars would not become too expensive and that racing cars would not be too dangerous separates Formula One from the spectacle as it once was.
After a few seasons of relatively dominant races by Red Bull and Sebastian Vettl, many have been relieved this year. The Red Bulls already found themselves in trouble during the winter tests, as they drove only about a third of the laps as the Mercedes team did. Opponents of Vettl's "finger" felt additional relief and indulgence in the first race, and in the next three they probably watched in ecstasy the continuation of the problems of the team from Milton Keynes. Where did the current champions get stuck? The answer to that question is complicated, as it’s not just about what broke Red Bull, but also about what was going on at Mercedes and Renault. New rules brought new engines. Mercedes, as an engine manufacturer, is, like Renault, long before the first tests began before this year
Even before the new year, more precisely on December 27, your and our portal World of Speed (officially) blew out the first candle and ended the first year of its existence. The vision that I had and still have came from the idea or desire for an objective sports portal, where news from all areas of motorsport is collected, with some of my own efforts and the help of some friends and former colleagues, finally came to life, despite some dirty tricks. " competition ". Here I would especially like to thank Simon Omahn for helping me set up the portal. The first step has been defeated, the ice has been broken, and this year we will try to be even better. In the first year, we tried to pay as much attention as possible to the sports where our compatriots perform, or to the sports on home soil, which are a bit behind other Slovenian media.
As reported, Ferrari racer Fernando Alonso avoided any penalty for overtaking Jean-Eric Vergen off the track at the race in Abu Dhabi. Before the start of the race weekend, the FIA warned all racers that any off-track driving would be severely penalized, but the Spaniard, who overtook Vergno by driving into the excursion zone and eventually finished the race in fifth place, went unpunished. , although according to many he violated two rules as he practically cut the inside of a fast bend, which according to the agreement of the racers is considered to be an advantage, and at the same time drove outside the track. It all looked like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Pe7IWkXXWY The decision of the commissioners is even more controversial because of the
Although Ken Block has no wins, no other major notable results in the World Rally Championship, nor in the American Championships, nor in Rally Cross, the guy is still a big face and a global phenomenon that everyone knows, especially at the expense of his skills wrapped in attractive and watchable internet recordings that sound like Gymkhana. But what if you don't have a "spied" Fiesta RS? You can find yourself on your own, just like the man in the video below, who harnessed an electric Crazy Cart for his Gymkhana and thus provided himself with an excellent and certainly successful advertisement for his crazy product. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKOaF7esBFY
One so, the other differently, both wrong, could describe what happened in the race for the Malaysian Grand Prix, where Sebastian Vettel ignored team commands and overtook Mark Webber, while Nico Rosberg obeyed and stayed behind his teammate Lewis Hamilton. Who did the right thing? “Right” is such a relative term that it’s hard to judge. Everyone will do it for themselves, according to their morals, principles and fan connections. From a moral and sporting point of view, Mark Webber definitely deserved the victory in Malaysia, as he was even better than Vettl in the race, and he managed to overtake him only when the Australian limited the revolutions of his engine so as not to wear it unnecessarily, as will still have to drive with him this year. But if you want to succeed in Formula One, you have to do your best. One of the more controversial d
In Germany, a conspiracy theory has been launched to the public that Lotus has an unfair advantage over Pirelli this year. How anyone can come to such a conclusion after just one race of the season can only be guessed at, and the fact is that some gullible people are stuck. The Germans, Auto Motor und Sport, to be precise, report that “some teams” are not happy with Lotus speed, and the names of these teams of course remain hidden, which is an obvious sign of a fictional story aimed at increasing clicks, visits, views and perhaps anything else. It’s a paranoid serving of conspiracy theories where reporters add up one and one to get five. It is true that Pirelli is using a modified 2010 season car supplied by Lotus, the former Renault, but hints that the Enston team has any benefit from this are
