    F1 2013 Thread

    Formula 1® - The Official F1® Website



    There are some small but important changes to the F1 regulations for 2013. This drawing highlights the key revisions that have been made to the FIA's technical requirements for the new cars…

    1) Weight - due to changes in their structure, Pirelli's 2013 tyres are around 2kg heavier per set than in 2012, hence the car's minimum weight limit has been increased by the same amount, from 640 to 642kg. As a consequence, the weight-distribution requirement has also been revised to minimum figures of 292kg:343kg front to rear, leaving teams 7kg to play with.
    2)Stepped noses - to mask the step in the car's nose (thought unattractive by many), teams are now allowed to place a non-structural 'vanity panel' over this area, the shape of which is strictly controlled by the regulations.
    3) Front wing tests - to prevent them flexing, front wings now face a tougher deflection test, with a 1,000N (100kg) load applied at two different points on both the longitudinal and transverse axes. The amount the wing may deflect has been reduced from 20mm to 10mm.
    4) Load and crash tests - more severe load tests for the roll structure have been introduced and the crash test requirements modified.
    5) Survival cell - the side load test for the survival cell is more severe too, and it must be applied to all chassis produced by a team, rather than to a single example.
    6) DRS - active 'double DRS' systems - where the DRS activation mechanism is utilised for other purposes - are no longer allowed (only passive solutions are now considered legal). Also, DRS usage is now limited to the DRS zones in all sessions (previously it could be used anywhere during free practice and qualifying).

    I hope I can make either the Singapore or Korean GPs this year! The '12 Korean GP was awesome (and cheap)!

    2012 F1 got lost, for me, since we cut cable at the house. I'm really hoping to keep up with it this year, via NBC!

    On the topic of NBC, I don't know if you guys heard about the new-ish commentator line up. I know Spiros will be delighted to hear that they have preserved the SPEED TV team save for the all around hated Bob Varsha, who will be replaced by Leigh Diffey

    Also Will Buxton has been retained.

    LOLz, I actually liked Bob Varsha. But it's all good, I'm sure I'll enjoy the team on NBC!

    It's going to be on NBC sports, a cable network and Varsha was the worst.

    What did you guys dislike about him? He was certainly more of a "radio announcer" type than the other folks, who were more driving and tech-based.

    He was pretty knowledgeable about F1 history. Yes, he was mostly an announcer. I didn't fancy his sometimes pompous attitude. He would at times cut off the others from expressing their views on a topic. I once remember him almost get into a live on air tiff with Will Buxton last year when Buxton started expressing his views on a subject, then suddenly cutting him off & going to commercial. He was the boss. Just too formal for me I guess. I personally have liked Leigh Diffey ,who was Varsha's stand in ,a lot more
