This was the case when the talent, beauty, intelligence and strong character were combined in a single pilot.After the death of Senna and Ratzenberger this is the first death in Formula 1 over the past 21 years.

News from Pirelli a Preliminary review of the Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi

News from Pirelli a Preliminary review of the Grand Prix of Abu Dhabi

The last Grand Prix of the season will be held in Abu Dhabi using soft and super soft tyres. This combination is one step softer than used in the past year soft tyres and tyres of medium hardness.Specialists of the company Pirelli familiar with the route Yas Marina they implemented here part of the test program before the company's return to Formula 1 in 2011. In addition, this route often conducted formal tests of the championship. This year is no exception the last two-day test session of the season will be held here after the Grand Prix on Tuesday and Wednesday.The asphalt of the track is quite smooth, and the configuration includes a variety of 90-degree turns. Difficulties on the race circuit should include the fact that, as in Bahrain, race day begins and ends in the evening, that is, the temperature decreased, exerting a certain influence on the strategy.In the current season on last stage points will be awarded twice the size, so the stakes are high, as never before. Therefore, the team will focus on strategies and will give priority to reliable finish.The weather should be dry and warm. The best of this track suit is soft and super soft tyres, the fastest in formula line of Pirelli.Paul Hembery, business unit Director, Pirelli Motorsport "it's Always nice to come back to Abu Dhabi, and this year the Grand Prix is special it will play for double points and will determine the fate of the title. The strategy is usually largely determined by unusual changes in the characteristics of the route the temperature drop due to the late start day. It was in Bahrain, which made the race one of the most exciting and unpredictable during the season. Therefore, training races will take on special significance, as the team will try to gather as much information as possible about the car tires of different types, not only for a different number of fuel in the tanks, but when the asphalt temperature. Points played a lot that opens up great opportunities for those teams, which can be enough to lose, but you can try to win a lot due to unexpected strategy.Jean Alesi, Consultant Pirelli "I never went on a Formula 1 car on the track in Abu Dhabi, but this track I really like high security and long straight, which give the opportunity to overtake, including through the DRS zones. Race starts at five o'clock, and then the temperature of the air and asphalt gradually fall, therefore, it is very important to adapt to the situation. Changing environmental conditions affect the air pressure in the tires. This year, the main difficulty for pilots is to award points in a double size. Even the current leader of the championship, with a significant points advantage, may be left with nothing because of a simple mistake."The route from the point of view of tyressuper Soft tyres have a low operating temperature range, therefore, they can demonstrate optimal performance even in a wide range of low temperatures. For soft tyres in the typical range of high operating temperatures. In terms of use of the two softest compounds of the formula line and smooth asphalt track warming up the tyres should not cause problems.We assume some reduction characteristics of the tire under the action of high temperatures that may have an impact on strategy and tuning cars. The first and third sessions of free races are usually held in conditions that are not typical for either qualifying or race due to much higher temperatures during the day.The first part of the route is a combination of successive turns, the overcoming of which the temperature of the tire reaches high values. Then the tires a chance to cool down when driving the car on a long straight for approximately 15 seconds pilots hold the gas pedal down until it stops. The car acts downforce equal to about 800 kg To maximize grip on the race circuit Abu Dhabi suspension rear part of the car is quite mild, but it can also lead to increased wear of the rear tires. If the back part is adjusted too tightly, there is the opposite problem excessive slipping of the wheels can shorten the life of the tyres in the race.Last year the winning two-in boxes. Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull started on the soft tyres on 14-lap came into the pits for a set of tires medium hardness, and then changed it to another set of tires of the same type on the 37th lap.

Kimi Raikkonen In Japan we need a good result

On the eve of the Grand Prix of Japan pilot Ferrari Kimi Raikkonen failed short the results of the last race in Singapore and shared expectations from the stage in Suzuka.

Kimi Raikkonen "Finally in Singapore we were quick enough to show good speed in qualifying. The car behaved the way I wanted. It is a pity that failed to achieve most of the small problems before beginning a fast lap. As a result, the race was little I could do, because you're stuck in traffic, and I was not able to show their pace. However, the positive outcome of the weekend was that I finally was comfortable in the car - I have long been waiting for.

In Suzuka important output of the power unit, and from a technical point of view this is a difficult track. Let's see how will look our machine compared to the leaders. I really like Suzuka. This track is old school and I prefer this track. My favorite track is Spa, but in my rating Suzuka is very close to it.

I finished all the races in Japan, in which he took part, except for the very first time in Suzuka, he was at Sauber and went down after a collision with Jean Alesi. I was able to show good results and win in 2005 I think one of the best. Performance in Suzuka is one of the highlights of the season. I also like to meet with Japanese fans - they are passionate and always support you, no matter what the season.

Ferrari need a good result because the team is leading the fight for third place in the Cup of designers. Hopefully the weekend will take place without problems, that will help to keep a positive attitude. In Suzuka we want to achieve maximum".

Susie Wolff I am Now better prepared for the Formula 1

Susie Wolff I am Now better prepared for the Formula 1

Susie Wolff has in history as the first for 22 years, female, participated in the official session of the race weekend of the Formula 1. In an interview with the official website of the championship she talked about what inspired her career.

Question Suzie, to pilot the car of Formula 1 is really better than any other technology in the world As I look at this woman

Susie Wolff I don't think there is a male and female perspective on driving a Formula 1 car - only view of the racer. This is the most scientifically advanced machine. It is necessary very quickly to adapt, because everything happens for a split second, and the speed is higher than you can imagine. Once you have mastered this, you experience incredible emotions behind the wheel.

Question How were you able to understand the technology Modern Formula 1 car is more complicated than ever before.

Susie Wolff I started racing on four wheels in eight years, and with the motorcycle met in two, so that the necessary high-speed coordination skills began to develop quite early. So, I began to participate in races in the same age as the rest of the guys on the grill. At that age you don't think about a career, and just want to have fun and, of course, to succeed. Looking back, I realize that I am lucky to do what I love to do hobby career.

As a child I never thought that doing something unusual for the girl. Parents surely did not become to convince me that I'm doing something unusual, so I was able to do what I love without worrying about the problems of boys and girls. At the age of 13 I decided that I can make a career in motorsports, ended up in the Formula 1.

Question as a young woman you fought in the race with racers, Hamilton, Kubica, Raikkonen or Nico Rosberg, have you thought about the gender issue in the senior race series They managed to break into Formula 1 for about twenty years, and you are still without a contract.

Susie Wolff of Course, there were funny moments. I remember the world Cup in Portugal, when I took the 15-th line and was very pleased with this, because the last race was difficult, but I got a good result. There was a ceremony when, suddenly said "Susie Stoddart, please go to the ceremony". I thought that was strange, because I didn't finish in the top three, but the team leader told me to hurry up. Then I realized that this is no accident.

Question Then why Formula 1 team are so skeptical when it comes to pilotasso

Susie Wolff I would not say that they are skeptical. For them, first of all, an important result, and reached the desired level girls which could be given a chance, is not enough. In addition, in the paddock there are a few people who would be against this. However, they can remain in the opposition, but sooner or later have to accept.

Question In that case, aren't you glad you showed in free practice, especially in Hockenheim that can compete with these guys and beat them

Susie Wolff I did not seek to occupy a good position in the Protocol, but focused on the partner.

Question But in sports is an important result in the Protocol.

Susie Wolff Yes. I have a very high opinion of Felipe, and therefore knew that from the point of view of the team must perform four tasks to cope successfully with their work, not to break the machine, collect a lot of data and as close to its result. I managed to do all this

I am very happy with my performance. I always said that I would not do that if I was not sure that is a good deal. I actually look at things, and if I thought I can do it, then I wouldn't be in this situation. I prepared a lot for free runs. And it was really good speech.

Question in theory it can give you the chance to sign the main contract rider. Is there any chance to see you at the start of the Grand Prix in 2015

Susie Wolff Williams two great racer, so I would be hard.

Question But in the eleven Formula 1 teams and 22 of the machine.

Susie Wolff I am proud to work at Williams. They gave me the chance to work on the tests driving Formula 1, although no one else wasn't interested in, because I have not achieved great success in the DTM. I am proud that I was in the Williams, and see what changes happen in the team I want to stay here. Let's see, will I have a chance. I know that you must fight.

Question it is Strange that Williams gave you a chance, because this is a conservative team, focused on driving were real racers.

Susie Wolff It's nice to hear, because many people think that working with me is conventional marketing. But Frank Williams never invited behind the wheel of a person, if doubted his abilities.

Frank came up to me after the session and said that he was happy with my performance. Frank and Claire is a real racing team I know that becoming competitive enough, I will leave the team, because my results are more important than my floor. They gave me a chance, and we can be proud that together we have achieved something special.

Question Does the man unusual to want more When a rare opportunity to work on training you feel inadequate

Susie Wolff I must fight for more and hope that will do the trick. I firmly believe that if you long to knock at the door, it will open, and then I should be ready for a possible chance.

Question In recent years, women have taken strong positions in many areas that were considered masculine. Why this has not happened in Formula 1 Why this process takes so much time

Susie Wolff first, I must say that there is no model of behavior for girls who want to get into Formula 1. This leads to the second problem if the girls in the go-kart is not enough, the best of them will not be able to climb to the top. But I am sure that this problem will solve itself Claire Williams became the benchmark - we proved that it is possible, and it should inspire those who decided to go this route. Not enough to be just a girl need to be a professional

Question You are upset that your career, it seems, begins only 31, but many will debut as teenagers

Susie Wolff I can honestly admit that I was not ready for this possibility, say, 19 years. I spent seven wonderful years with Mercedes in the DTM - it has made me a very strong opponent. I could not achieve the desired success and must recognize that performance in the DTM were a difficult time for me. I never managed to sign a contract with a leading team to get a real chance to fight for podiums, but it made me stronger.

I had wonderful companions, from whom I could learn - Mika Hakkinen, Jean Alesi, Ralf Schumacher - this experience helped me to be here. If not for him, I truly believe that my debut behind the wheel of a Formula 1 test in 2012 would not have been so successful, and I wouldn't get the chance now. Those tests were rather the exception to the rule, it was assumed that all of this ends, but since everything went well, I was able to participate in the youth tests. They too have gone well, and as a result I got the chance in Barcelona this year, and so on. If not successful at each stage, I would have immediately lost his place in the team.

You can say that is a little sad that I'm over 30, but as I said, I was not ready for it at the age of 19.

At one dinner I sat next to an Olympic champion cyclist sir Chris Hoiem, and he said his 28-years of age were asked about retirement. But he said he has achieved the greatest success, when he was 30, but the experience helped him to win the gold medal. I am inspired by this idea and I have no doubt that I'll understand when my time is up. As soon as I feel I can't continue, I was the first to admit it.

Question You have achieved the first success behind the wheel of a Formula 1. Do you think that there is still a lot of things

Susie Wolff Yes, I believe I can do better.

Question What factors should be combined together, so that you can achieve your potential

Susie Wolff In essence, it all boils down to one thing the amount of time behind the wheel. And this is a difficult thing, because the tests are limited, and the main drivers it is important to reach the maximum distance. How can I set to work again on the track This is the biggest obstacle I have to overcome.

Question Modern racers have a small height and weight. You will ideally come.

Susie Wolff I meet all the requirements I was talking with a couple of riders who are long in the Formula 1 is all said that in 2006, the machine was very difficult to fly, but today the progress in my direction. To pilot becomes easier. I will not say that driving a Formula 1 easy, but easier than before.

Question What advice would you give to girls who want to follow in your footsteps

Susie Wolff Go For It Don't let anything stop you. In life it is not easy to succeed, but if you really want it, do it, no matter how many difficulties have to be overcome. Catch a wave in a world that is changing in favour of women.

Question How do you feel about the fact that the hair deteriorates under the helmet

Susie Wolff Yes, the hair always look bad when I take off the helmet. I can see how bad things are, when you look at the engineer if he shakes his head, so I need to wear a hat.

Question We will see progress Ferrari, if James Ellison will be able to reach their potential

Luigi Mazzola James is a great engineer. When he worked in the test team, he had an amazing ability to analyze the data of aerodynamics. He is now technical Director of Ferrari, and I hope that over time he acquired the necessary experience to cope with such a challenging role in a team that has to win.

Question In Hungary, the head of the Red Bull Racing Christian Horner tried to determine how it will change the weather, and the McLaren has relied entirely on data". What do you think, better less dependent on technology and to rely on your own experience

Luigi Mazzola On the first plan must always be a man. Intuition, emotion, the ability to adapt it's beyond technique. Those who rely solely on technique, loses the most important human abilities.

Question You held a key position in the test team Ferrari, when the team was the most successful. What do you think about the current rules What advice would you give to former colleagues, so Ferrari could emerge from the crisis

Luigi Mazzola the Rules are the same for all, though I never liked the rule of private Park - he takes the slightest opportunity to modify the car.

As for Ferrari, I don't think that you are entitled to give advice, because I'm five years do not participate in the championship, and during this time much has changed. I'm sure the team is able to understand what needs to be changed again to win.

News Pirelli a Preliminary review of the Grand Prix of Hungary

The specialists of the company Pirelli and Formula 1 team will make 800-km transfer from Hockenheim in Budapest to participate in the stage, which is held on the next weekend after the previous one, which is the only case among European stages in the calendar of Formula thrissa the Hungaroring, the first line of Formula 1, built behind the "Iron curtain" in 1986, is stationary, but it is characterized by many features of street circuits a large number of narrow twists and low level of cohesion, which are at the forefront of mechanical grip. In previous years the race were often held in hot weather, but the rains are not a rare event. The Pirelli will bring on this stage of the P Zero tyres White medium hardness white-labeling and mild P Zero tyres marked with yellow colour. This combination represents the best compromise between speed and resistance to high temperatures. Track the Hungaroring does not make any exceptional requirements to the tires, but a series of consecutive turns, gives the tyre the ability kladutsey Hembery, Director of the division of Pirelli Motorsport "the Hungarian motorway known for its insidious configuration it is very difficult to overtake, and no less difficult to find the perfect settings for all of the racing wheel. In the result of the important role of purchasing strategy, as it provides a rare opportunity for regaining positions. In Hungary, the weather is usually a topic of conversation, but seeing as our bus did on progresses to a high temperature asphalt track in Hockenheim, we're sure there are no problems with that party. For Hungary we chose one step more hard tyres, which must cope with high loads, so we expect the implementation usual strategy with two stop strategy, but the best overview of the possible options, we will be only after Friday free-race".Jean Alesi, Consultant Pirelli "in recent years Hungaroring track has changed for the better. For this track required car setup for maximum downforce, since there are many low-speed turns and dispersals in the low gears, but it has several areas where you can be your best. The transmission of tractive effort continues to be the principal technical problem. The most careful attention to the rear tires otherwise you can be no clutch and to experience difficulties with braking. There are some very important facts about this track. The second turning after the pit-lane, for example, is the left and is located on the descent. It seems, but it is not high speed to correctly enter the next right turn, you must adhere to the inner side of this second turn. The realization that each of the previous turn affects the next passage, is the key to track the Hungaroring. In my opinion, this year the pilots have more complicated in all the corners should be very attentive to the accelerator pedal. Increased torque motors current cars complicates this task, so pilots are not always able to follow the ideal racing line"Trassa from the point of view of tyresMotorway Hungaroring has an optimal balance of traction, braking force and transverse load. Fireballs are configured for maximum downforce to provide the necessary mechanical traction when passing slow pavarotebshi average rigidity have a low operating temperature range, therefore, they can demonstrate optimal performance even in a wide range of low temperatures. Soft tyres, on the contrary, those high operating temperature range, that is better suited for operation at higher temperatures. Asphalt temperature the Hungaroring is usually one of the highest within sezanna Hungaroring track tires are exposed to different efforts. The development of this model thrust on bus operates vertical load, and at the same time they experience the transverse load when cornering, as well as the longitudinal load from acceleration and deceleration. All these efforts load frame SINV 2013 victory turned out to be a strategy with three stop strategy then Lewis Hamilton used the soft tyres and tyres of medium hardness and won its first victory for the team of Mercedes. Kimi Raikkonen, who performed last year for the team Lotus, saw the checkered flag second, but visited it in boxes only twice.
