Default THG At The Races

The advanced state of F1 cars is shown most clearly by a "memory" function that is used by most F1 teams. As Sauber's Rampf explained, a driver can store a complex car setting, including differential, traction control, engine braking as well as wing settings for each curve of the track. Once such a setting is stored, sensors in the car are able to recognize that curve the next time the car comes around. Electronics monitor certain data such as G-force levels to identify a specific curve and then apply stored settings instantly.

MAD, that is all I can say.

Customised settings for each bend?

Wouldn't they get better results by improving the engine?

what makes you think they don't?

this is just another way of gaining a few milliseconds per round.



I wonder what happens if they hit a kerbstone though :grin:

right, forgot about that, but I was thinking of a single event I once saw on TV (pole position runs) and in a certain curve they almost always hit it way to hard at a bad angle making the cars bump sky high.
