F1 season start on March 6 - some F1 facts

Formula One facts and figures ahead of the season starting in Australia on March 6:
- - - -
TECHNICAL
-The top speed of a Formula One car is around 375 kph and Monza is the only circuit where such a mark is likely to be reached.

-During the Monaco Grand Prix, cars will change gear around 3,100 times.
-Carbon brake discs and pads generate surface temperatures in excess of 1000 degrees celsius.
-A Formula One driver loses on average two kgs in weight during a grand prix. He can lose up to 1.5 litres of fluid during a hot race.

-Formula One cars can accelerate from standstill to 200kph and back again in less than seven seconds.
-Full braking from 200kph to standstill takes 55 metres or 1.9 seconds, producing deceleration forces of up to 5g -- five times a driver's bodyweight. - - - -

DRIVERS
-The last driver to win without leading a lap was Briton Damon Hill in Belgium, 1994, after Michael Schumacher was disqualified.

-The only driver to lead every lap of a race except the last one is Briton Nigel Mansell (Canada, 1991).
-The last driver to win a race after leading only the final lap was Italian Giancarlo Fisichella in Brazil in 2003.

I can't wait until the Australian GP. I also look forward to riding down to the USGP in June and going to the Mexican GP (Cancun) in 2006!!!!!

Here's a illustration I found of the Cancun facility. I'm not sure if it is the final version, but this is likely it. Note how the US style oval is built into it.

wow that photo is so kewl!

as of today I'm rooting for
jensen
jpm
DC
weber
alonso

some will do better than others, but I'll still root. Should be fun, I like a lot a guys in the field. If ferrari stumbles in oz, i'd like mclaren, bar, or renault to prosper. Points for minardi would rock too.

I can't stand Montoya. He is a jerk. Arrogant punk that has not done anything in F1. Big nothing. He has made a huge mistake leaving BMW to go to Mclaren. Mclaren was so off the pace last year it was a joke. And I am not an Alonso fan at all. Just don't like his driving style.

Mainly will root for Weber, Schumi, R. Schumi, & Kimi. DC won't put up any numbers. He is getting to old for the field and will not be a factor. The guy on the move will be Button. He is probably going to pull out a couple of victories this year. Hopefully he can mend the relationship with BAR and do even better than he did last year.

The series is boring because the same guy always wins. It was like GP when Rossi was winning without even trying, it isn't nearly as much fun to watch.

Ya, watching the most technologically advanced cars in the world go 200mph to 60mph+ in a hairpin corner is so boring. It is not always about who wins but who came in 2nd, 3rd, 4th and the pure racing that comes along with it. Now for me, the race yesterday was as boring as watching the grass grow. 500 miles with 4 left turns. WTF is that about. That is the most boring sh#t ever.

That's my point, there is no pure racing when the same guy always wins. And I didn't say I liked just watching left turns either.

I know you did not say it but it was just a general statement. Well 19 races this season and most likely Button will give him the best competition. I would say Barichello, his teammate, but no way they will have him go infront of Schumi.

Time to bust out my F1 Ferrari Cap for watching F1 races. God, why people watch NASCAR, is beyond me. Everyone is making such a big deal because there were some lead changes in the last seven laps. Big deal.

F1 is the way to go, to get your blood pumping.

The race will be on for sure, I just have to find out at what time is he going to play it. He TiVo every race and then reply it couple of times until the next race. Usualy on Sundays when the race is early in the morning he plays it at 10am. It is a complete coverage, pre race and everything. I will be there for sure.

I love it, but I do tend to agreee that all racing is kinda boring to watch. The droan of the motors puts my to sleep real quick. I can remember sleeping during F1 practice at indy, sleeping during sunday's daytona, and even sleeping until 2nd call of a CCS race I was in. Din't get me wrong I still LOVE it, wait I'm getting sleeee...
