Driver of the day - Choose your driver of the day, and get half a point for every position gained. No minus points for lost places.

5 Bonus points to be awarded if prediction is made before first practice for the race, times as per BBS clock and actual practice start times.
NOTE - A forecast prior to FP1 can not be changed (even if a late grid penalty occurs). A forecast made after the start of FP1 can be changed with no penalty at any time up to the start of Qualification. A forecast made after the start of Qualification will attract a 10 point penalty.


Therefore, maximum points for a race week are now

(25+18+15+12+10+10+10+5 = 105 Points)

Predictions are welcome by PM, please PM Mike Douglas and I will post them on the thread before the race if this option is used.

Note : Timings are taken as per post or edit times if post is changed.

Maurizio Arrivabene has been replaced as Ferrari team principal by former technical boss Mattia Binotto. Arrivabene had held the role for four years and a Ferrari statement said the decision was made by "the company's top management after lengthy discussions."
Binotto takes immediate charge and Ferrari said "all technical areas will continue to report directly" to him.

Ferrari failed to win either title in 2018 amid a series of driver and management errors.
Arrivabene, 61, had been boss of the team since December 2014, joining from main sponsor, the tobacco giant Philip Morris, where he was a vice-president. He was in charge of Ferrari while the team enjoyed a revival in competitiveness in the last two seasons.
But he was widely seen within F1 as a Ferrari figurehead only, with the real power instead resting with former president Sergio Marchionne, who masterminded a reshuffle of the technical department in 2016 but died from complications during surgery for cancer last July.

Marchionne's intention before his death had been to remove Arrivabene and replace him with Binotto, who had led the team's technical department to a series of widely copied design innovations since 2016.

McLaren have appointed German Andreas Seidl as the new boss of their struggling Formula 1 team. Seidl's recruitment in the new role of managing director is the latest in a series of management changes aimed at making McLaren competitive again. The 46-year-old, ex-boss of Porsche's World Endurance Championship team, will join "during 2019", reporting to chief executive officer Zak Brown. Brown said Seidl was "a highly capable leader with a track record of success". He added: "It is another important step in our F1 performance recovery plan and long-term commitment to F1."
Seidl, who worked in F1 for BMW from 2000-09, does not yet have a specific start date because McLaren have yet to agree a leaving date with Porsche.

The man appointed as the new boss of Renault's Formula 1 programme has left the French car company before even taking up his new position. Thierry Koskas was named president of Renault Sport in November, and attended the season-closing Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on a fact-finding mission.
But 18 days after he was due to start work, Renault announced Kostas' departure from the entire group. Jerome Stoll, who had been due to retire, will continue as president. A spokesperson for Renault Sport shed no further light on the situation, but emphasised the move effectively meant the F1 team continued as before under Stoll and managing director, and de facto team boss, Cyril Abiteboul.

Former Toro Rosso driver Brendon Hartley will join Ferrari as a development driver for the 2019 Formula 1 season. The 29-year-old joins Pascal Wehrlein, Antonio Fuoco and Davide Rigon in working in the Ferrari simulator. He replaces Daniil Kvyat, who returns to Toro Rosso for 2019.
Hartley, from New Zealand, raced for Toro Rosso during the past two seasons, as well as winning at Le Mans and the World Endurance Championship in 2017.

They say, the matt paint saves one and a half kilo.

So according to the BBC, F1 design (aerodynamics) will be in for a re-vamp in 2021
To view the link you have to Register or Login

"Formula 1 is being reinvented - some might say revolutionised - and if it's a success, it will be closer, more competitive and more exciting.
Everyone involved in the sport has known for years that one of its biggest problems is that the cars cannot easily race closely together. Now, F1's bosses have set themselves the task of addressing this in time for a major reset of the many aspects of the sport in 2021, and they believe they are getting somewhere.

"I'm confident we are going to make a big step forward," says Pat Symonds, Formula 1's technical director and the man leading research into the new-look F1. "I think we'll have a much more race-able car. I think we'll have a better-looking car."

Revealing exclusive details about the cars that will race in 2021, this is how they are planning to do it.

What's the problem?

Symonds and his small team of former F1 engineers at the central London headquarters of the sport's owners Liberty Media have been looking at ways of solving a problem that has haunted the sport for decades.
The current cars have awesome performance, with braking forces as much as six times the force of gravity and cornering forces that can top 5G. But the way they generate that performance is exactly why drivers find it so difficult to race.
The performance comes from huge amounts of aerodynamic downforce. But the cars can only generate that load if they are driving on their own. Put another car in front of them, and the airflow to the car behind is badly disrupted - and that has a huge effect on how much downforce it can create.
A 2018 F1 car following another car within 10 metres would lose as much as half of its total downforce. So it is literally physically impossible for that car to keep up.
They only way a car behind could follow at the same speed as one in front was if it fell back to about two seconds adrift, out of this 'dirty air'. Which by definition makes it impossible to overtake it.

To look at it from a performance perspective, on the vast majority of F1 circuits in 2018, a car following behind needed to have a lap-time advantage of nearly two seconds to overtake the one in front.
In other words, two closely matched cars competing for the lead cannot reasonably be expected to overtake each other. In many ways, it's a miracle there is any overtaking." (BBC website)

(the wording in the BBC article is a bit poor, and could have been written better by someone with some engineering knowledge)



I can see aerodynamics/drag/turbulence being a big part of the existing problem, but also engine costs are limiting only the big-spenders to the best engines.
F1 has always been pioneers in lots of road car developments. Aerodynamics, active ride suspension, electronic ignition, semi-auto gearboxes, blah, blah.

Having a standard engine for all teams would seem to fly in the face of active developments. However, something has to be done to level the playing field for the spectators benefit and for the smaller teams.
Let driver ability be the deciding factor in a race ?

IndyCar/Champ Car racing has always been closer than F1, and that's because there are many more limitations on car design and materials. For the sake of closer racing, is it time for F1 to take a backwards step ?

And as a point about paint. Most of the metal components are sprayed with a very fine semi-matt black paint, that allows teams to x-ray them to check for any damage before renewing.

As far as I am aware , colours of paint does not have different weights. Any colour-scheme of cars is always sponsor-related
