Time for another multi-article post, with one preview and two reaction pieces from the exciting-but-could-have-been-more-exciting Singapore Grand Prix.
Last week, the FIA—Formula One’s governing body—sent a letter to the teams indicating they are no longer allowed to provide advice to their drivers via radio during the race. According to the BBC, the letter said, “no radio conversation from pit to driver may include any information that is related to the performance of the car or driver.”
Since winning the final three races of the 2009 Formula One season, Red Bull have been on a roll. But their streak of four straight Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships looks set to end this season, done in by a Renault power unit that cannot match the one produced by Mercedes.
Before the German Grand Prix in July, the FIA, Formula One’s governing body, announced a ban on the front and rear interconnected suspension (FRIC) systems used by the teams to generate more downforce and maintain stability under braking and cornering.
Sorry, I got a bit behind on posting my B/R pieces again. Here is a preview/review of Monza, all at once.
It may seem like the Nico Rosberg-Lewis Hamilton incident from last weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix has already been dragging on forever, but the fallout will not fully be felt until the end of the season, and possibly beyond.
