F1 racing teams have to wait for the F1 season to return

Summer break between each F1 season is always an important time to help the racing team rest after months of non-stop work.

However, based on the current real situation of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the traditional summer vacation will turn to spring.

FIA’s sports regulations require a two-week total closure of the factory and other F1-related activities with racing teams during the August break. annual. This year it was moved to March and April due to the complicated course of the COVID-19 pandemic and the closing time was extended to 21 days.

The FIA ​​stated that the change in this F1 2020 sports standard was approved by the World Sports Racing Council. It was agreed by all 10 racing teams, strategic teams and boards.

The teams also made their own official announcement, stating that they support the FIA’s decision to change the ‘closing time’ and also update the specific time or period of stopping all activities at the Grand his headquarters.

Plan to close factories and headquarters pushes early to April 3-4

Red Bull is expected to be closed from March 27 to April 17. Meanwhile, Alfa Romeo is expected to be closed from March 23 to April 13, Ferrari in March 19 to August 8.

They will also try to comply strictly with the COVID-19 disease prevention regulations, especially at the team’s headquarters, as well as hope their colleagues at McLaren or supplier Pirelli (have been positive. with virus) will soon recover and return to normal life.

Vehicle development plans for 2020 and both 2021 will be revised

So what does the closure of this factory mean for the tournament and the racing teams? First, this provision was introduced for two main reasons.

The first is the most painful problem that exists at the moment, cutting costs because some facilities need huge amounts of money to be able to operate, such as the windtunnel of each team. , used for vehicle testing purposes. So they need to be suspended for a certain period of time.

The second is to spend valuable time with team members being able to rest at home and recharge for the sprint phase of the tournament.

The second issue to discuss is the change of the format of a race, a necessary adjustment in the context of FIA and FOM desire to expand the F1 season up to 25 races per year. Recently, due to the influence of Super Typhoon Hagibis, the rating run was transferred to hold on Sunday morning, bringing a ‘Super Sunday’ day to the fans when witnessing two important runs in just about 6 hour clock.

However, according to F1 management leaders and racing team leaders, maintaining this schedule in all races will make the teams very hard and the ‘losing’ will be more than the ‘okay’.

F1 is considering ways to change the format of a race

Having two runs on Sunday will overwhelm the teams and potentially lose a large number of spectators watching the race. Imagine how many people are determined to use most of their Sunday to track both runs. Certainly there will be many who will only watch or rank or the main race rather than all watching both.

In addition, the racing teams also want to shorten the time of one race to 2 days on Saturday and Sunday if the future season increases the number of races. This will allow most of the team members to be able to arrive at the racetrack 1 day later than the present, saving more time.

Racing Point team leader Otmar Szafnauer also pointed out that the number of spectators coming to watch the race on Friday very little, TV audience is only 1/10 compared to 2 weekends, because part of the day goes. do.

The proposal is made up of two trial runs and a rating run on Saturday, while the main race is still on Sunday. All possibilities of change are still being considered, and hopefully all will find a common voice and offer a most reasonable solution.

Sao Paulo celebrated the 25th anniversary of the legacy of the legendary Ayrton Senna

Toro Rosso proposed changing the name of the racing team next season and was approved in a meeting between F1 racing teams and the parties. Related recent took place in Paris.

Toro Rosso will carry the Alpha Tauri name from 2020

The team known as Red Bull’s “B team” has been in the F1 racing village since 2006, after being acquired by the company to wrestle at the end of the race, Minardi.

The deal ended the 21-year history of the Italian team in F1, but the old headquarters in Faenza has been used by Scuderia Toro Rosso ever since. And after 15 years, the name Toro Rosso will “disappear” by the end of 2019 and instead is a completely new name Scuderia Alpha Tauri.

There will be no more Toro Rosso by 2020

The F1 Council and the racing teams had an online vote right before the race in Suzuka, Japan, and the results approved this change. Alpha Tauri is the emerging brand of Red Bull, and it will be promoted worldwide from next season, accompanied by an F1 racing team.

This is a rare case of change in the case that the owner of the race remains the same and completely changes the name. Usually teams only adjust their names every year depending on their main sponsors.

Last Wednesday in Paris, a meeting of F1 racing teams and stakeholders was held to continue to discuss changes in standards from next 2021. One of the noteworthy proposals was the testing of the short-race race on Saturday to determine the location for the main race on Sunday afternoon.

It is expected that this change will require absolute unification of all racing teams and, if approved, will have 3 races in 2020 to test this model.

At the present time, there are some racing teams who disagree with this idea, as Mercedes thinks that cars in the back will be difficult to rise forward.

According to the teams’ simulations, if all were to run on one type of tire, set up the car for the main race, and the front car was equally strong or only slightly slower, it would be difficult for the rear vehicle to attack. and overcome. If the vote does not yield absolute consensus, then the norm may change in 2021 without this.

5 crazy predictions about the f1 racing tournament in 2020 (Part 3)

Haas will master the middle race

The “nightmare” of 2019 has finally passed with the fledgling racing team from the US. After a year of 2018 being considered a leap for Haas, they have high expectations for this year’s VF-19. However, this is a version of the car is difficult to control and slow, the combination is considered “deadly”.

Fortunately, they soon understood the problem and had their own lessons, so they soon turned their focus to 2020 when they knew 2019 was a failed season. Powered by the most powerful engine at the moment, along with many other parts (according to FIA standards) from Ferrari, hopefully they will start the next season according to the plan.

The middle group will have one more bustle year with the balance of the racing teams, with McLaren and Renault being the top names. However, Haas cannot be underestimated as they did in 2018. Together they create a battle to score tense, attractive and at the same time hope to close the gap with the top 3 – Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull.

Will Ferrari sign Ricciardo in 2021?

Besides Lewis Hamilton, Daniel Ricciardo is another candidate for the official position at Ferrari, with a higher possibility. The first year at Renault after leaving the Red Bull of the Australian driver was not easy and with the transfer situation for 2021 getting hotter, he became a sought-after name if he decided to part with Renault when The contract expires at the end of this year.

Ricciardo has shown his ability through impressive victories and recognizable running style. He is also one of the most capable riders in the tournament.

Therefore, Ricciardo (originally from Italy) is a suitable name combined with the youth of Charles Leclerc to create a new “dynasty” for Ferrari, similar to what Michael Schumacher has won. Ricciardo or Hamilton? Let’s wait for the decision of the “war horse” in the second half of this year.

The championship in 2020 is determined only at the last race

Ferrari’s improved competitiveness, combined with stability, will really cause Mercedes and defending champion Lewis Hamilton.

The German team is heading towards an unprecedented record – seven consecutive championships and Hamilton is determined to reach the milestone of Michael Schumacher’s seven individual titles.

Steering wheel # 44 is in good shape, but you need to be wary of the rise of Leclerc, who is more mature after a year at Ferrari, and can’t help but mention Max Verstappen and Red Bull.

Honda is no longer in the position of the “underdog” plus the Red Bull has always been strong over the years as a ‘scary’ combination for the coming 2020.

Verstappen will have a better record in 2019, meaning he will at least win at 4 races and we will witness the trio race for the individual championship. And everything can only be solved under fanciful lights in Abu Dhabi, the first time since 2016.

At least 2 new faces will appear on the podium

Carlos Sainz and Pierre Gasly, who became the 210th and 211th drivers in F1 history, have the honor of stepping up to the podium, after impressive achievements at Brazilian GP 2019. It is likely that this list will continue to be extended in next year.

One of them must be Alexander Albon, who won the 2019 Rookie title at the FIA ​​awards ceremony. Albon’s speed and determination have already been recognized, but he still needs to get his Red Bull into the top 3 and win podium – a mission at his fingertips.

Meanwhile, McLaren Lando Norris’s rookie also left many positive impressions in the 2019 campaign and contributed significantly to the success of the team. McLaren is also very determined to compete for podium next season, and if it does, Norris absolutely deserves the first step to the podium in the second year in F1.

Another noteworthy face is that Esteban Ocon’s return at Renault is also capable of setting a miracle. The French racing team was unlucky in a 2019 with many surprises from Toro Rosso or McLaren. Surely they will be determined to get the first podium after 9 years with a combination of Ricciardo and Ocon.

5 crazy predictions about the f1 racing tournament in 2020 (Part 1)

From 2017 to now, Scuderia Ferrari has proven that they have a car that is capable of winning the title, but the lack of tactical thinking of the team and the unstable performance of the riders through each stage has made the title. The enemy continuously slipped from their hands.

The SF90 of 2019 is a near-perfect version, proving that the power is hard to beat in some races near the end of the season, but there are still some weaknesses to overcome. Ferrari’s technical development team will certainly learn from those mistakes and make new strides for 2020.

As for the main driver, the rapid integration of Charles Leclerc talent has made Ferrari struggling to solve the problem that occurred on the track between him and Sebastian Vettel. But it is possible that there is an internal resolution of the problem early that the team can focus on big goals this year. Vettel has a tough 2019 but in the final season of his contract with Ferrari, he will definitely want to do something special.

Racing team leader Mattia Binotto said it was reviewing the entire engine and aerodynamic system to increase performance, while CEO Louis Camilleri said the company was willing to spend more money on the F1 and F1 program, with a system. New emulators are under construction. They are desperate for a title first in 2008 and they will find ways to do it.
