carbon neutral racing?
shaking my head....
From McLaren's web site:
Quote:
Nevertheless, in order to officially become fully carbon-neutral, we needed to purchase carbon credits in order to wholly offset our carbon footprint.
With enough money, any company can become carbon neutral. What a farce.


I could become carbon neutral, but my wife says we couldn't afford to purchase enough carbon credits to offset my "emissions"

Carbon fiber = sequestered carbon, right?

Well until Hamilton is bashing into Massa.

Unfortunately not. Sequestration is taking carbon out of the atmosphere and storing it. That's not how they make carbon fibers.

It looks like the Austin Grand Prix is a GO for 2012.

Woooo Hooooo and they didn't wait until the last minute. FIA still has to meet tomorrow, Bernie could still smack the pooch.

FIA has announced it is on the schedule. Phew, that was an interesting ride.

Great news. But I'll keep my powder dry until Bernie opens his yap to confirm it. Shouldn't take too long either way, he likes ink.

Some interesting rule changes for next season.


* Before the safety car returns to the pits all lapped cars will be allowed to unlap themselves and then join the back of the pack, ensuring a clean re-start without slower cars impeding those racing for the leading positions.

Thank goodness. F1 felt like it was in the stone age with its refusal to allow this.


* There will now be a maximum race time of four hours to ensure that a lengthy suspension of a race does not result in a race that could run up to eight hours if left unregulated.

My DVR thanks them.


* Drivers may no longer move back onto the racing line having moved off it to defend a position.
This will be very interesting to follow! Controversy assured.


* One three-day test will be carried out during the season, formerly there were none.

Joy in Teamville.


* Drivers may no longer leave the track without a justifiable reason, i.e. cutting a chicane on reconnaissance laps or 'in' laps to save time and fuel.

That strikes me as being a bit of housekeeping. We saw a few drivers (seem to remember Webber or Vettel cutting a chicane once) do this. Apparently there was no rule against it. Until now.



You know what's missing? Any change to qualifying. Specifically, there are no changes to the tire rules for qualifying. Pirelli had been pressing for relaxed rules because too many teams weren't even going out for Q3, in order to preserve a set of softer tires, thereby hurting the show. I guess they can still make another rules change prior to the start of the season?
