Verstappen fastest Q1 qualifying round

After much improvement, Ferrari’s SF90 is considered the most powerful race car today, followed by the Mercedes team W10. However, in areas where the difference in gravity and air thinning is very high, their chances of expression are greatly reduced. Because in addition to the need to have an optimal aerodynamic problem, it is also related to many other factors, including the factor of harmony with the soil here of each individual driver.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Leclerc received two sentences in Suzuka

Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc was fined a total of 15 seconds and fell one step, for two errors in the Japanese F1 race on October 13.

Leclerc is penalized for five seconds for crashing into Max Verstappen (Red Bull) after starting, and 10 seconds for continuing to race without going into the pit to replace broken parts. The penalty caused the Monaco driver to fall from Friday to Saturday, after Daniel Ricciardo (Renault).

“Ferrari did not ask Leclerc to return to the pit at the end of the first round. After that, they continued to disregard the supervisors when letting Leclerc race another round without guaranteeing safety. Ferrari caused unsafe on the track and had the risk of creating an accident linked to the accident, “notices from paragraph monitors.

Leclerc crashes into Verstappen at Turn 2, after starting. The collision caused the Red Bull racer to fall to the bottom and then give up. The Leclerc SF90 had a broken front panel that left the wind on the left. Leclerc continued racing and made part of this part crashed, flying into the right-hand mirror of Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes). Another part also flew into the front brake disc of Lando Norris (McLaren). In the third round, Leclerc new pit. Because the brake disc was affected, Norris also had to enter the pit early in the fourth round.

The loss of rearview mirror does not make Hamilton into the pit early. But, he only finished third after Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) and Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari).

Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc confirmed that he still believes in his team-mate Sebastian Vettel after the incident in the Russian GP race.

 

 

Toto Wolff: ‘GP Russia is a big step forward for Mercedes champion’

Mercedes Toto Wolff said the home team could think of the sixth consecutive F1 championship after the race in Russia last weekend.

“The meaning of this race makes the victory special. It’s unbelievable. We had doubts about our tactics at times, we knew where our shortcomings were and we had to hope that the car would be safe.” all will appear late. Eventually it happened. The whole team seemed to burst into joy, “Toto Wolff said.

Wolff felt that Mercedes was confident enough to head for the sixth straight championship.

Lewis Hamilton’s fourth successive victory in Russia GP was contributed by the “free” pit, which took place after the virtual safety car appeared due to Sebastian Vettel giving up in round 26. Take advantage of the tire set. recently, Hamilton overtook Charles Leclerc to help Mercedes stop Ferrari’s three successive victories.

“I think this is a big step towards the championship. The fact that it has never happened before. The unpredictable things always exist and so we really have to work for each week. We need to regain the true speed at Suzuka racetrack. It’s a great race and we are always very strong there. We need to find answers to our questions and be stronger”, Wolff said.

Victory in Russia GP helped Hamilton widen the gap with teammate Valtteri Bottas to 73 points and 107 points higher than Charles Leclerc. Mercedes also increased the gap with Ferrari to 162 points when the season was 5 more steps away.

Vettel said that GP Russia is the first stage that Ferrari feels can compete with Mercedes fairly this season. When asked about this statement, Wolff said “That comment may be true. In general, they did better in the past week and we faced big tasks. We need to revise the pace. “We also need to review our tire knowledge to find the speed on the track.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why can’t Leclerc surpass Bottas?

Restrictions in 90-degree corners prevent Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc from surpassing Valtteri Bottas in the Russian Grand Prix on September 29.

After Sebastian Vettel gave up in the round of 27 Russian GP, ​​the victory seemed to be in the hands of Lewis Hamilton. Ferrari’s last hope is in Leclerc. Monaco rider enters pit in round 30 to replace soft tire like two rival Mercedes. Winning the stage seemed out of Leclerc’s reach, but fans still expected him to pass Bottas to second place.

There are three reasons fans believe in Leclerc. First, the 21-year-old racer won the pole in Sochi when it was faster than Hamilton and Bottas by 0.402 seconds and 1,004 seconds, respectively. Second, Leclerc changes soft tires two rounds later than the competition, although this advantage is not clear. The last and most important reason, the SF90 is stronger than the W10 on the long lines like in Sochi.

Telemetry data shows that Leclerc is faster than Bottas by 31 km/h in a straight line leading to Turn 2 (338 km/h compared to 307 km/h). With a significant difference, Leclerc tries to hide and then waits for DRS (wind resistance reduction system) to be activated to overcome Bottas. After DRS appeared in round 35, the distance between Leclerc and Bottas was only 0.8 seconds. The 21-year-old racer is even the fastest in an area (sector), which is mainly straight. He still could not bring the car equal to Bottas. After about five laps at full speed, Leclerc reduces the speed by about one or two laps to cool the engine. Do everything but he still can not overcome Bottas.

SF90 lost to W10 on a tight corner and average has been the situation since the beginning of the season with Ferrari. They have improved a bit on the pressure weakness since GP Singapore, but data from Sochi shows that the two teams still have a big gap.

Leclerc’s remaining chance lies in Turn 3 half-circle, when he peaks faster than Bottas 11 km/h. But, overtaking on such a specific corner requires high skill.

 

 

 

 

 

Improvements help Ferrari dominate the Singapore Grand Prix

The new nose and diffuser of Ferrari help Sebastian Vettel win F1 stage for the first time in Singapore on September 22.

“Without improvement, we cannot win at the Marina Bay racetrack,” Motorsport quoted Vettel. “We were surprised by the power of the SF90 from the qualifying round. My results in the third round (Q3) were not very good. But, I know the chance to win the stage will come when I get into the pit at the race. The team suggested that I race at full speed and finally succeed. ”

Ferrari is often unsuccessful with improvements ahead of the races this season. On the track that is thought to be incompatible with the aerodynamic structure of the SF90, Ferrari has made reasonable adjustments. They increased the downforce for the car to fit the most angular track in the season, without compromising aerodynamic efficiency.

They changed the nose of the car, by adding a strut system to support the front spoiler. This secret was invented by the Force India team (now Racing Point). The system acts like a diffuser placed in the front of the vehicle. They increase the downward pressure on the front – the weak point of Ferrari since the beginning of the season.

The new nose is used on the first test day of September 20. At that time, Ferrari was still slower than Mercedes and Red Bull. Things have changed dramatically since FP3 to the September 21 qualifying round. This difference is in the air diffuser in the underbody and the rear. Ferrari used it at the French race in June, but it didn’t really work. When the Italian racing team combined them with the new front nose system, they picked fresh fruit.

Charles Leclerc was fastest in the qualifying round, then with Vettel to win the first two places in the main race. Ferrari has found the right formula to overcome aerodynamic weaknesses this season.
