Why F1 has introduced new secret car checks in 2021

  • нийтэлсэн 18 өдрийн өмнө

    THE RACE

    Үргэлжлэх хугацаа: 08:14

    The FIA will carry out deeper technical checks on one car drawn at random at every grand prix in 2021. At the Bahrain Grand Prix the lucky winner of this draw was Valtteri Bottas, whose Mercedes passed the additional checks with flying colours. This is part of a push by the FIA to further close down any possible avenues for cheating in F1, with the hope being that the threat of a team's car being chosen for the random extra checks will prevent teams being willing to take too many risks around F1's technical rules. So how does it work? Edd Straw explains all in our latest video.

These are rules regarding the car specifications, not laws. If they don't meet these standards the car is non compliant not illegal. Nobody is going to go to jail.

Great F1 updates, knowledge and latest rules, etc. But what’s with the flashing of “ads” during videos? I pay for NO COMMERCIALS on YouTube subscription, and inasmuch as I am a zealous F1 decades-long fan, your commercials are annoying. Peace. We Race As One.

I'm curious as to how this random selection happens... is it possible to randomly select the same car for many races, or after you have been checked, your car is off the list for a couple of weeks

Love these types of videos, but please Scott, for the love of god stop being such a dickhead in the drivers press conferences. Instead of asking multi-part questions that are impossible to remember and questions that hit a nerve, maybe try and build some good rapport with the drivers? Might open up some opportunities in the future, because as it stands, everyone hates when you’re called on to ask a question.

This sounding like the begining of the end of F1 like the end of NASCAR in the US. They changed everything, including taking the manufacturing companies out of the game. All chassis were the same, and on and on. So in the end the cars looked the same and passing became more difficult and the people like me said he'll no. Well F1 is going in the same directions, one tire, no refueling, now surprise inspections, and with the new rules for 2022 they are taking away the creative nature of engineers and in my opinion killing the sport. Yes the big company backed cars would have an advantage with money, but instead of rules that restrict innovation spread the money from the bottom up instead of top down they already have deep pockets help the small teams with bigger piece of the pie. And get more tires manufacturing companies and refueling back into the game.

Does anyone else think that the budget cap, safety regs and engine capacity max should be regulation enough? Doesn’t all the minutiae just stifle genius innovation. All the current rules make F1 something akin to a one make series.

Checking one car relative to second car from one team is very minimal. I believe checking random 5percent of total participants is far more effective. Shorten areas of checks to compensate time and cost.

Perhaps they should do what Nascar does prior to approving the car to be allowed on track with that high tech laser grid scan. It's worth a try and it's made that sport more honest than it was like for example 23 years ago.

Fia - we are doing a standard Random inspection. (Picks bottas) Bottas leaves the track with his car in 1375 pieces, had his phone checked, his pockets checked, had his finances looked into, blood and urine tested and had a camera up the backside. FIA next race - we are doing a standard random check on Ferrari. (Picks leclerc) Leclerc tells the fia the car is red Fia - checks.....agrees...announces its ok and the inspection is over.

To be honest, 1 car out of 20 is not enough, the teams could still take the risk of getting catched. I dont know what penaltys they get for breaking rules, but f.e. the 50.000$ Ferrari had to pay in 2019 Abu Dhabi GP for overfueling the car of Leclerc is a joke for the teams, at least for the bigger ones. I think 8 people who are checking the cars is way to less for such an expensive sport and a big organisation like the FIA.

It's very very clear, that everyone in paddock after 3 years, do not understand how tha hell Merc's are so damm fast .... even FIA with many years in the field doesn't understand it also. So .... Merc's are official Lab rats. Merc's are hitting hard on the Ferrari prestige legacy .... ( or FIA ? ). This is interesting because Merc's have an intriguing and overhelming perfomance overall.

I know it would take a lot of personnel and time but why cant a chassis be stripped down and investigated before practice. That way a car can be banned or team fined. The problem is the cars are independent in the internal design. And it is hard to see what things do, And electronics are hard to understand. NASCAR inspect 50 cars per event. Way more than F1´s 20 teams.

Will the new regs force the teams to fit Butt hole pressure sensors to each driver? If so, will the teams be required to log this sensor or will it just be a live channel. I only ask Bc it seems the fia is already up in the cars Butt so it’s a logical progression of the rules in my opinion. Thanks and have a nice day.

Can't wait for RB to be "randomly" checked. I trust them as much as I trust the Chinese. While the FIA are at it, add track limits to the list. A suggestion is take the sand bags Mercedes are hiding and spread it out along the outside of the T4 equivalent at the next race.
