January nomeromania 9 - Olivier Panis, 1996

Since its appearance in Formula 1 in the mid-1970s, Ligier used the numbers "25" and "26". But in 1996, under the new rules, the French team got "9" and "10". "Nine," was happy for Olivier Panis.In late 1994, Flavio Briatore, then head of Benetton, for a nominal sum bought Ligier, find themselves in a difficult financial situation. However, the Italian was most interested in the contract for the supply of motors Renault, which he immediately copied by Benetton. Instead Ligier got the engine Mugen-Honda and the access to the development of a championship team. Naturally, the new Ligier cars was like two peas similar to Benetton.If in the season 1995 the case Ligier bit went up the hill, the 1996 results has dropped significantly. For the season, the team earned only 15 points, and 10 of them Olivier received an unexpected victory in the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix.

Stefan Johansson racing to be selfish

Ex-Formula 1 driver Stefan Johansson believes that many pilots in modern Formula 1 is not enough selfishness.Stefan Johansson "To become a great pilot, you need not only to have talent, you need to be selfish, to be obsessed myself. So it was in the past.Mansell, Senna, Simple, Piquet, Lauda, Senna, Schumacher they were all selfish and looped on itself. Only with such attitude can keep on top. Now only Alonso fits that description".Johansson competed in Formula 1 in 1980-1991. for teams such as Arrows, Spirit, Toleman, Tyrrell, Ferrari, McLaren, Ligier, Onyx, AGS and Footwork.

Alain Prost I shouldn't have to buy a team

Alain Prost I shouldn't have to buy a team

In 1997, a four-time champion Formula 1 Alain Prost bought the Ligier team. The Frenchman still can't forgive herself for that deal.Alain Prost "after three months after buying the team began to show good results, we almost achieved victory, but I have always said even at the time that it doesn't work out. I have long been familiar with Formula 1, with France and its laws, procedures and so the project was doomed. Buy team was a stupid idea, and I knew it.I didn't want to buy the team. At first I had a preliminary agreement with Peugeot for five years with participation in the development and free engines. But two days prior to the contract they changed their minds, suggesting that the agreement is for three years and paid engines. I was very glad when all this is over".

Mark Shulzycki to be honest, the pressure was enormous.

Mark Shulzycki to be honest, the pressure was enormous.

Young far Eastern pilot mark Shulzycki a couple of years ago was an advanced gamer, an avid fan of virtual racing, and we talked about the amazing changes that have happened in his career, when he became the winner of the competition program of the Nissan GT Academy. Already in 2014, mark made his debut in the legendary marathon "24 hours of Le Mans crew team OAK Racing, speaking at Ligier car-Nissan in the LMP2 category, and took 5th place in class. Actually, this crew even claimed the podium, but failed equipment. In any case, the debut admittedly absolutely successful.

On the first day of the Moscow international motor show, we met with mark Sulzickis booth, Nissan.

Question Le Mans certainly became the main event of your rapid career, and now, after a lapse of some time, and have calmed down a little, you can return to this topic. After a very successful debut in the legendary marathon you already feel like a professional racer

Mark Shulzycki You are right, my career, everything happens very quickly I started with a thin, almost standard cars of GT4 class, and now, two years later, perform in LMP2 at sportspromotion. I even sometimes do not have time to understand how it happens, why so fast Just get used to one machine, and immediately jump into another But actually, in my opinion, all this is very helpful, because I traveled a lot, and I already have an understanding of the various appliances. The tests that we are preparing for Le Manu, held together with Ligier, modifying a car, really helped with the point of view of professionalism. To be a good racer, a little fast to go - need to know the technical side of the issue.

Before that I had no such experience. When you arrive at the race, everything happens very quickly practice, practice - and yet, as a rule, something goes wrong, will break, and you're just sitting in boxes. Then the qualification and already I need to start. During the racing weekend is very hard to delve into technical issues. So when the tests we are very practiced a lot, traveled a lot, it has affected very positively.

Started tests for two or three months before Le Mans, we were in Estoril, then went in Magny-Cours, France, and even despite the fact that he had spent so many days, was able to dash off a distance equal to only half of Le Mans. If 24 hours race we drive more than five thousand kilometers, the tests failed to pass only two and a half thousand.

Question In Le Mans you were a beginner, but in this race important teamwork how were you able to quickly adapt and perform at the level Alex Brandl, more experienced teammate OAK Racing

Mark Shulzycki of Course, the pressure was enormous, to be honest, because the team last year won Le Mans, and in General is essentially a factory team, because they produce these machines. It was important for them to prove that Ligier - the car of the future, sportpalace LMP2, which will win. In principle, despite the technical problems, we with this challenge, because many teams, seeing that the car is really worthy, showed interest in her.

For my part, I just tried not to make mistakes in driving. Went quickly - it is clear that different there. In Le Mans specific route, and here's why it is very easy to lose time, but it's very difficult to recoup. The track is very fast, the average rate is incredibly high, and when you, for example, only caught a machine of the class GT, slightly begin to let go of the gas and immediately lost almost a second. On the other tracks there is no such thing. You need to keep a very high speed and overtake other cars as quickly as possible - this is the complexity of Le Mans. And just because this happens so many accidents.

In General, you need to be able very quickly to overtaking, and, fortunately, I am good at it, don't know why. laughs And I am pleased that after the race, when comparing the results of all pilots, my result was really good. Approach take the best 25 circles and calculate the average time at this distance. And I was faster than Alex Brandl. So I, in principle, happy. Fortunately, Nissan saw this too, and I now have a continuation, there is some hope for the future.

Question About this we will talk again. You rode in a carriage, which consisted of more experienced Alex Brandl, son of Martin Brandl, and can say that he has direct access to the entire world of racing experience. As you inside the crew was based interaction Was able to get some useful information by observing his work

Mark Shulzycki Yes, Alex has twice traveled to Le Mans. Always so happened that I came across experienced companions. Alex really been made - and in the Junior formula series, and sportspromotion chased. Fortunately, he is very sociable person, says a lot, sometimes even too much, and our team did not have any disagreements and misunderstandings. So it was all good, but we have Jan Mardenboro - so they among themselves too openly competed and sometimes a bit overdone. However, in the race it happens.

Actually, everything was great, and we parted on a pleasant note. It is clear that we are all very upset, because I wanted at least a podium in its class to rise, but failed equipment. When this happened in the first few minutes it was hard, but then I calmed himself it is not the end, it is necessary to go further, because the future would bring a lot more interesting.

Question What is happening now in your career, and what are the hopes for the future

Mark Shulzycki Almost immediately after Le Mans I was told that I will be until the end of the season to play in the championship ELMS European Le Mans Series. We have a strong team - now I go along with Luciano Bacheta, very fast driver who was champion of the Formula 2 and as a prize he got right to work on test driving a Williams. We have made the race for the Austrian Red Bull Ring track, and there are still two stages - Paul-Ricard in France and in Estoril in Portugal. Attitude positive I think I will be able to fight for podiums.

As for next year, while talking about it early. Therefore I concentrate on the next two races are very important to me. And it remains to be seen. But of course, I have set themselves the highest possible goal.

Question What would be the ideal scenario for the next year

Mark Shulzycki at least, become a test pilot with Nissan in LMP1. It would be ideal, although I understand this is very difficult to do. In LMP1 now very high level of competition, everybody is talking about it and everyone wants to get there. Let's see what happens.

Roman Rusinov We did the right thing

Roman Rusinov We did the right thing

After the race "24 hours of Le Mans in the world championship on races on endurance FIA WEC has come a long break, which will be completed only 20 of September, when Austin starts the next stage of the series.

For the Russian team G-Drive Racing championship there will actually begin anew because pilots will sit behind the wheel of a new chassis from the company's Ligier. In an exclusive interview nonf1.ru pilot G-Drive Racing by Roman Rusinov told about how the preparation for this event, and why the beginning of the season the team played on the chassis Morgan.

Question a novel, what have you been doing all this time

Roman Rusinov actually the last time I had a busy schedule. I participated in the race Blancpain Sprint Series Audi, came on demonstration activities. In addition, as I have already told the rest of the championship G-Drive Racing will be conducted on new machines, Ligier, and we tried. Now G-Drive Racing does everything that we successfully performed on the remaining stages.

Question Looking back - maybe it was worth to spend on these chassis and race "24 hours of Le Mans, as your second crew

Roman Rusinov No, we did the right thing. During the race Ligier broke three times, and we knew that it would. As for what happened with us - we were just unlucky. In the beginning of the race, when the first safety car, we were in the boxes, and as a result have not been able to leave the pit lane due to a red traffic light, losing three minutes. But before nightfall we climbed to second place, having played for two minutes. So we was all right, we knew that we have a reliable machine, and that it will reach the end.

Yes and tempo, in fact, was the chassis Morgan slightly below the straight-line speed, because we knew that at the start will lose, but time round we came out on top. But then, when driving was Olivier PLA, we crashed a Ferrari. So, I guess you could say that we had all the chances, but Le Mans is Le Mans. All were confident that we would win, but there is always something might happen. Take, for example, Mark's Wife, who at the last moment suddenly appeared instead in LMP2 LMP1 and became the winner. And for the first time Le Mans was won by a machine that spent 25 minutes in the boxes. So, I think, if not for this, our accident, we could finish in fourth place in the overall standings.

Question However, the potential Ligier cars higher than Oreca and Morgan They were leading most of the race.

Roman Rusinov They were ahead, because we have several strong teams left the competition. Yes, Ligier fast chassis, but you cannot say that they are head and shoulders above the rest. This is a good machine, but for Le Mans chassis Morgan came more. And I proved it already on the tests, showing the best time, when the level of grip was very low. Machine Ligier were second from us. So our choice was correct.

Question However, for the remainder of the season you chose Ligier cars.

Roman Rusinov Yes, this decision was based on a serious analysis of the situation. But I don't want to talk about some specific advantages chassis Ligier. Anyway, we in the G-Drive Racing took this decision.

Question Until 24 hours of Le Mans is the only race that you didn't win. For the remaining steps, you will get a new chassis. What are you aiming for now

Roman Rusinov one Goal - victory. All the chances we certainly have, but we cannot say that it will happen. And Le Mans is once again demonstrated.

The airfield at Silverstone during the Second world war was used as a base of American and British air force. Then here coached the young pilots, and when the military finally left the airport, in Silverstone came racers.

In 1948, the Royal automobile club RAC was to find a place for holding national Grand Prix circuit was occupied by the military, in Brooklands settled civil aviation and taxiways Silverstone was a variant of inexpensive and ready-to-use - RAC quickly settled the issue with renting, having 3.7-mile track in the shape of an hourglass.

In 1950 Silverstone hosted the first stage of the Formula 1, in the presence of king George VI and the many fans race was won Nino Farina. A year later, the Royal automobile club handed over management rights to a circuit British Club Racers BRDC, until 1954 here was the British Grand Prix. From 1955 to 1963 Silverstone divided the race with Aintree, from 1964 to 1986 nd from brands hatch, and then single-handedly took the national stage.

In July 2008 it was announced that it has signed a multi-year contract on carrying out of Grand Prix at Donington Park, in the end, the deal did not materialize, but during this time at Silverstone has a major reconstruction by adapting the track and to the requirements of the MotoGP. The new configuration has been called Arena and was adopted as the basis for the Grand Prix of Formula 1 in a few months after the signing of the new 17-year contract in December 2009.

The new configuration 745 meters long version 2009, between turns Club and Brooklands paved the plot of the velocity curve, ligaments three turns and long straight. The average speed has increased and now exceeds 230 km/h, 66 of the circle during the qualification riders passing with a fully pressed the gas pedal.

Before Grand Prix of 2011 has completed one more stage of reconstruction - construction of the new complex of boxes and paddock, which cost the organizers 27 million pounds. Many believe that complex "Wing", located between turns Club and Abbey, will allow Silverstone become one of the best tracks in the world. There are now starting a new direct and pit lane.

The track is demanding stability of rubber, of the effectiveness of aerodynamics and brakes - after the transition to the new configuration wear pads and shoes became even more intense. This weekend the Pirelli will be offered to the teams with the most rigid structures from their range - Hard and Medium. A year ago factor rubber became one of the defining British Grand Prix, at the distance of the race once at the several riders exploded in a bus, so after step engineers Pirelli had to revise their design.

Quat, Magnussen and Ericsson in the British Grand Prix was not involved.

Pat Symonds "the British Grand Prix is a home race for most teams of Formula 1, many databases are located near the circuit. It may seem that you prepare for this step a little easier than the rest, but usually the opposite. The proximity of the databases allows the teams to prepare more news, since there is no need to take them onto the aircraft.

Silverstone, who in the years of the Second world war was the airfield bombers, has undergone many changes over the years. In previous times changes took place in 2010, but the nature of the route remained unchanged a high-speed ring with fast changes of direction - it is for this feature of many racers track called one of his favorite.

Because the circuit is located on the site of a former airfield, related to this is another feature is the strong wind. When AC and potentially strong winds combined with high-speed turns, which are prevalent on the track, this leads to big problems for the drivers and engineers who need to understand the direction of the wind currently in use, as this affects the choice of points braking. Headwind or tailwind may affect the propagation time of a circle, and a side - on the stability of the machine.

The stability of the machine when you change the direction of movement is the key to a fast lap time, and for this important efficiency of aerodynamics. At Silverstone not many serious braking, and therefore difficult to overtake, and brake wear should not be a problem.

The track is quite bumpy that must be considered when setting the height of the suspension. Most of the riders were in Silverstone already in the youth series, they know the track inside out. In addition bumps, another feature Silverstone different asphalt at different sites. It is connected with the reconstruction of the circuit in previous years, in the end, the track cannot be called homogeneous, due to this feature, some areas in wet weather, stay moist for longer, for example, the third sector".

In 2014, after the eleven-year break, in Formula 1 again appeared Austrian stage. The race at the circuit in Spielberg, for the third time in its history changed its name - Osterreichring - A1 Ring - the Red bull Ring - back in the world Cup, thanks to the efforts of the co-owner of Red Bull Dieter Mateschitz.

The owner of the two teams Formula 1 first invested in the reconstruction of the circuit, and after a few years lobbied for the conduct of the national stage. Organizers said many times that the money from ticket sales, which parted for a few hours, will only cover operating expenses, but for the Mateschitz this project has a special status - and he paid the required fee Bernie Ecclestone to.

About the stages on the road in the hills of Styria, we described in detail in the historical category, and the recent history of the circuit began may 15, 2011, when Red Bull Ring was opened after reconstruction. In the same year, there were stages Formula 2 and DTM, but on the return of Formula 1 spoke with great care, including the Mateschitz, who said that the track is designed for competitions of the youth series, and it is quite satisfied.

The talk about the return of the Grand Prix of Austria in the calendar began during street shows Red Bull Racing in Graz. Then in the calendar for the 2013 season FIA has reserved 21 July for an unnamed Grand Prix and a consultant to Red Bull Helmut Marko reminded Federation that the Austrian circuit has a license for conducting of races Formula 1. In January, the Mateschitz said he considers three - or five-year contract with Ecclestone, and in early July 2013 the papers were signed.

The layout of the circuit in fact corresponds to that used in 2003, but brought in line with modern standards - expand the security zone separate sites are equipped with barriers TecPro, built a new press center and other facilities. The route of the old school has acquired a new appearance.

Changed the names of most of the turns, which bore the names of drivers. There was only turning name Jochen Rindt, but the one before was named Nicky Laude, now called Pirelli. Dissatisfied with this Lauda complained that "in his time no one was looking for sponsors for turns".

The circle on the Austrian road is rather short - shorter range this year only in Monaco and San Paulo. The combination of slow corners and straight requires a compromise between the pressure force and speed when selecting settings. The track is located in the mountains, which will affect the work of the power plant, and the weather is traditionally unpredictable.

The first three slow turns preceded by long straight where speed exceeding 300 km/h, but in General, the range of the load on the brakes and tires on the circle is not too great.

Nick Chester, technical Director of Lotus F1 Team "Configuration requires configuration on average downforce. For Red Bull Ring need the same approach as in Bahrain, in fact there are also quite a few long straight and sector with medium-speed turns. In Pirelli consider, that the covering is not too abrasive, asphalt smooth, so again, will be used tyres Soft and Super Soft.

Seasonal 1997-2003 year we have some data Bank, which we can use, first of all - the information about the trajectories that have improved the accuracy of calculations when conducting simulations".

Roman Rusinov we have a chance to win

Roman Rusinov we have a chance to win

Before the start of the famous marathon "24 hours of Le Mans in an exclusive interview nonf1.ru Roman Rusinov told about prospects of the G-Drive Racing in the race.

Question Richard, how did the car this morning

Roman Rusinov I never sat behind the wheel of the machine was piloted by my companion Olivier PLA. 24 hours is a long race. Actually, weekend actually has been going on for two weeks, and now the beginning of the main event. 300 000 people at the track. You can see what's going on here. How long did it take you to come to the track How much time you will spend in order to go from here I think more, than in Moscow in the days when covered the entire city. Here is more complicated.

The machine is fast, we have competitive crew. I think Ligier bit faster than we, but we knew it, because this machine will be used at all stages of the championship after the race in Le Mans.

Question are You satisfied with the results of the qualification

Roman Rusinov we Cannot say that the team is satisfied, because in the first qualifying we were the leaders, while the second has worked with the settings for the race, and the third was expected to show a good time, but it had a large number of accidents, many red flags. In the end, we failed lap and show time.

Question What do you expect from the race

Roman Rusinov let's be realistic view of things. To start, we will try to finish. If we finish, I think we have a chance to win or to come to the podium.

Le Mans 2014 introduce participants

Le Mans 2014 introduce participants

In the coming weekend in France will host the next marathon "24 hours of Le Mans is already in the 82nd time. As before, the race counts towards the world championship on races on endurance FIA WEC, and participants of the championship will earn twice as many points than usual, 6-hour stages.

The track this year has undergone small changes aimed at improving the safety - this was a consequence of the death of the pilot Aston Martin Allan Simonsen last year. In the main differences are reduced to the height change curbs in Chicane Ford that pilots categories GTE not cut the apex of the second part.

Just race will take part 165 pilots 55 crews, who will fight for victory in the four classes. nonf1.ru is contestants.

Category LMP1

LMP1 is the most prestigious class prototypes, which can be presented both factory and private teams. In this class manufacturers have the opportunity to experiment with technologies and configuration. Permitted machines both in the front and zadnemotornoy layout that uses petrol and diesel, turbo and naturally aspirated engines and hybrids.

In order to fall under the definition of hybrid, the car has to move around the pit lane with a speed of 60 km/h, using only the electric drive. When the car is on the track, it can accumulate energy, not exceeding 500 Kj, which corresponds to an increase of about 100 PS for 6 seconds. However, the actual meaning in the allocation of hybrids in a separate category disappeared several years ago, because these machines now dominate in absolute offset. This season all factory crews LMP1 use a hybrid power-plant.

Traditional favorites marathon - factory team Audi, for the last 14 years gained in Le Mans 12 victories. Formally this season, the Germans again will use the same Audi R18 e-tron quattro that brought them victory in 2012 and 2013, respectively. But in reality the machine is seriously different from the previous year, including due to changes in the rules. The first stage of the season the team has conceded in the second took the second and fifth place.

As a year ago, the team will present at the start of the three crew. Two of them participated in the world championship WEC on a permanent basis di Grassi-Duval-Christensen, Fassler-Lotterer-Trebuie. These crews - the main contenders for victory in the class and the absolute. To give preference to one of them quite difficult in 2011 and 2012, "the 24 hours of Le Mans" won Fassler with partners, last year - Christensen however, instead di Grassi in the crew was retired Alan Macneish. At the wheel of a third machine will sit Filipe Albuquerque, Marco Bonanomi and Oliver Jarvis. All three pilots are quite well known and experienced, but like this, will perform for the first time.

The main competitors of the Germans again, as in the previous years, will become the factory crews Toyota. This time the Japanese put on start hybrid TS 040 and determined to get even with Audi for defeats in the last years. In the first two races of the season it has been quite successful - at Silverstone and Spa won the crew Davidson-Lapierre-Buemi, confidently leading the championship, and formally the first crew of Wurz-Nakajima-Sarrazin both times were on the podium. But the real test will be to Le Mans, where representatives of Toyota has not won yet.

"Dark horse" of the race will be the crews Porsche. On account of German concern more than all the victories in the history of Le Mans 16, but in recent times it has been won back in 1998. This season the German team after a long break we are back in the championship WEC, and overall it looks good. In the first race, the crew Hartley-Webber-Bernhard finished third, while the second Lib-Jani-Dumas has managed to win the pole position. Of course, while the machine is a bit crude, but the speed it is, and if all goes well, the representatives of the legendary brand will again intervene in the struggle for victory.

In addition to representatives of the factory teams in LMP1 there is also a sub-category L, where are the "private traders". It was planned that the fight here will lead two teams, but the German team Colin Kolles Kodewa serving under the brand Lotus, did not have time to prepare your prototype T129-AER, and vynujdena was to refuse to participate in the marathon. The result of this competition will start only two crews on Rebellion R-One with the engines of Toyota. To compete with the factory teams they, of course, can not, and their only objective is to get to the finish and not let representatives of the lower orders.

To distinguish LMP1 cars can on the white lights and white number on a red background.

Category LMP2

LMP2 - Junior class prototypes. Technical characteristics similar to LMP1, but restrictions are much more. Participants may not use the factory support. The cost of the chassis should not exceed 355 000 Euro, and the price of motor - 75 000 Euro.

It is in this category will fight for the victory of several Russian riders and teams. It is pleasant that the main contender for victory in this category will be Moskvich Roman Rusinov, the third year of the speaker for the G-Drive Racing. Last year Russia took in Le Mans third place, but after the finish the crew was disqualified because of a mismatch of the machine technical requirements. Until the end of the season Roman tried to defend his innocence, in passing having won five of six races, but in the end the result, he had not returned.

In the offseason Rusyns changed chassis technical support command and crew. The results of the first races are more optimistic - the crew of the Ruthenians-PLA-canal has confidently won both races. However, they did not participate main rivals of the Russian team, and the number of started was small. In Le Mans, where to start in this category will be released immediately 17 crews, competition will be much higher.

Hardly probable not the main rivals160G-Drive was to become the team Millenium, in fact, gathered under its banners last year's crew Rusinova and used his last year's chassis. However, just a week before the start of konqui crew Fabien Girua, John Martin and Oliver terve refused to participate.

You should pay attention to the car 35, which will put G-Drive Racing under the brand OAK Racing. For her the wheel sits Alex Brandl, as well as two winners of the project GT Academy Yann Matebore and mark Shulzycki. They will perform at the new chassis Ligier JS P2 Roman Rusinov did not dare to use it in the "24 hours of Le Mans", but plans to change to the subsequent stages.

Three more Russians will act crews of SMP Racing. At number 27 will start Sergey Zlobin, Mika Salo and Anton Ladygin, while 37 - Kirill Ladygin, Nicolas Minassian and Maurizio Mediani. The team holds its first season in the category LMP2, watch her performances will be interesting.

Formula 1 came to Canada in the mid 60's, four years, the national Grand Prix in turn took Mont-Tremblant and Mosport, and then the stage settled in Mosport - another track was too dangerous.

In 1977 French Canadians remember the success of Gilles Villeneuve, voiced the idea of building the circuit in Quebec, but to start from scratch was a long and expensive, so a basis took artificial island Ile Notre Dame, built for the international exhibition Expo-67 a part of the constructions was used during the Olympics-76. The city authorities found two million, connect a straight, and the Grand Prix of Canada, 1978, all was ready.

The first stage winner became Gilles Villeneuve, who rode the Ferrari 312T3 70 laps of the 4,500-meter track 157'49. In 1982, after Gil was killed in a training before the race at Zolder, racing circuit called him by his name.

The history of the canadian race full of tragedies and triumphs. Here it is almost impossible to guess the winner, often on top of the podium rises pilot, not claiming to be, and the leaders of the championship is not always lucky.

Canadian highway demanding of the brakes and the engine, and to aerodynamics is very calm is the first circuit during the season in which the team set up the machine on a small downforce. The absence of some problems gives rise to others - need to find an optimal balance and configuration of the machines, which this year has not yet been used, so check the track is usually not empty.

The abundance of acceleration increases the wear and tear of tyres, granulation becomes a problem, but another big problem is the brakes. Cooling system does not have time to cool, serious braking on lap four - direct torn shikinami, so the brakes and transmission will not easy.

The Pirelli will invite teams compositions Soft and Super Soft is the same as in Monaco, but the deterioration is higher than in the Principality.Last year only two pilots managed to go the distance with one pit stop, the majority of the racers were stopped twice in boxes.

Fernando Alonso "the Track in Montreal rarely used for racing and in the course of the weekend grip seriously improves when the pavement is covered with waste rubber. Here are a few overtaking opportunities, before the start line you can get into the "air bag" behind the car opponents and attack on braking.

This route needs a medium-low level clamping force, it is very demanding to the brakes. The key success factor of stability on the brake, and a careful when attacking the sidewalks and good performance acceleration that allows you to quickly pick up speed at the outlet of shikan.

The fate of the race in Montreal unpredictable to the finish in the last ten laps brake discs are usually worn down, so there could be any surprises. Not less unpredictable and weather - during the week-end one day usually it is raining".

Roman Rusinov Task - to win everywhere

Roman Rusinov Task - to win everywhere

Last year Roman Rusinov and his team G-Drive Racing spent the end of the season world Cup WEC in the category LMP2 just amazing, winning five of six races the only exception was actually nesostojavshajasja race . In the offseason Russians changed chassis technical support command and crew, but the results it did not affect both the first race of the season the Russian pilot G-Drive easily won. In addition, this year he will also play a full season in Blancpain Sprint Series, where he drive the Audi R8.

In an exclusive interview nonf1.EN novel is told about what had changed for him this year, he expects in the future, and what endurance race today.

Question Richard, in the off season you moved from the chassis Oreca on Morgan. How big is the difference between them

Roman Rusinov there isn't much difference. Initially, and in fact, and in another case it was chassis Courage, the development of which went under the different scenarios. The fact that there are two different concepts - priority clamping force, with priority given maximum speed. Chassis Morgan, unlike Oreca, more designed for maximum speed. But I cannot say that it is easier to manage or better - they are both quite competitive.

Question last year, you have managed to find a very good setup, which allowed to dominate in the second half of the championship. You were afraid to repeat this success in the current year, you will not succeed. Now you have another machine, but, nevertheless, the results have not deteriorated.

Roman Rusinov Yes, during the winter tests we managed to do the work that we did last year with Delta. In addition, I brought the information that allowed us to progress.

Question finally, are you happy with the choice of chassis, teams, pilots

Roman Rusinov we Have a good crew and a good machine. Had the opportunity this year with the start of the season to use the machine Ligier, but we refused. It was my decision is the fact that although we have tested it and overcame more than eight thousand kilometers, I personally am more than three thousand, but go to start in Le Mans on a machine that has not yet passed the 24-hour race is a big risk for us.

We are fighting for the heavyweight championship of the world, and to risk, speaking at the wheel of a new car, it is wrong. So we decided that the second crew of G-Drive Racing, machine number 25, will travel to Le Mans on Ligier, and we are on Morgan. But after Le Mans we will re on Ligier.

Question Your crew you selected. Everything turned out the way you wanted

Roman Rusinov Yes, racers I picked up, but we also took into account the wishes of the sponsors and partners. At the same time it was important for us to gather the crew, which will fight for the title, with the experience of playing in Le Mans. Therefore, Julien canal we were ideally suited as a pilot, who has won the Le Mans three times already, and Olivier PLA is a pilot OAK Racing, a company that also supports us.

Question Is that in the races of endurance is very important to control tyres, fuel consumption, and so on. You're not going as fast as we can, and with a certain time on a circle, and go beyond that time cannot in any of the sides. It turns out that the speed does not count

Roman Rusinov No, it's not. The thing is that now endurance race not as difficult as it were in the 1950s. By and large, no endurance racing no more - now it is essentially a permanent sprint. Because from the first circles you actually go to 100. Of course, you need to follow the tire, but now in any form of Motorsport, even in GP2 if you are too quick to pass the first two rounds, then just kill rubber and lose. We have the same thing.

You're always going to 100, just need to go with your head. And this is the most difficult in our series - it happens that the first three circles show you the best time of the race, and the last 10 go with the worst. So your task is to go quickly, but without demolition machine. You don't allow the car to slide, to avoid overloading the bus.

Question in Addition to tires, influence and fuel consumption

Roman Rusinov of Course, it is also very important. Depending on your class, you can take the circle or less on a circle anymore. I am hindering the left leg, so consume a little more fuel than, for example, Julien, which inhibits the right. Sometimes you have to change the settings of the engine to reduce consumption.

Question Representatives of "Gazprom Neft" was said that in the future do not exclude your transition in the DTM. You yourself how interesting

Roman Rusinov I certainly would have preferred to go to the main category of the championship WEC - in LMP1. But we understand that in this case there is no sense to come in a team. Have to agree with one of the teams, and it is not so simple.

Question so, considering your connection with Audi, you can imagine that one day you can get a seat in one of their crews factory team LMP1

Roman Rusinov It would be great, but here still it is important to do this to show in the end, a good result. Now I don't know how it is right to organize. At this moment we have a certain strategy, and we are evaluating various options.

Question so this variant is not excluded, and in the following season

Roman Rusinov I don't think about it. I am a realist, and prefer to focus on what to expect really.

Question Now you are in two Championships - FIA WEC on the prototype category LMP2 and Blancpain Sprint Series on the Audi R8. Not too great a burden

Roman Rusinov of Course, the schedule was hard this year I will spend 19 races. But thanks to this I keep in good shape.

Question What is the championship priority for you now

Roman Rusinov I Think this year our main championship - WEC. As for the performances with Audi, it is the main goal - race "24 hours of Nurburgring". But, of course, if we participate in two series, then both should show a good result.

Question In which of the series above the competition

Roman Rusinov In General, the level of competition is the same. Here at the Nurburgring will have a much harder because there's a great role for a tactical game - all will try to conceal its shape, not to show ahead of time good times on the circle. In addition, there are so many different chassis - Porsche, McLaren, BMW, Audi, and so on - each has its own characteristics and advantages, so that will be very difficult.

Question But on the "24 hours of Nurburgring" also seeks to win

Roman Rusinov the Task of winning at us everywhere, but at the Nurburgring it will be very difficult. I think this is the most difficult race among all. Not only because of the tactics is due to the configuration of the track, for example. A circle with a length of 24 kilometers, very complex, and go for 100 here is dangerous, because in some rotation may be oil, or something. So you should always have a supply, not to send the car into the wall.

Question This race itself you like

Roman Rusinov Yes. It is difficult, as the track is fast, long, weather conditions are constantly changing. There's not easy to pass, as the machines involved very much. But because of this victory there, or even finish on the podium even more valuable.

Question do You feel about why the road was called the "Green hell"

Roman Rusinov Certainly. My first race was held there last year night. There was rain, fog, nothing is visible, and on each circle are you several times take a risk, which can easily fly off the track. This is a real "Green hell".

At the Monaco Grand Prix the Preview stage

At the Monaco Grand Prix the Preview stage

On the last Sunday of may is traditionally held At the Monaco Grand Prix. Race through the streets of the Principality is one of the symbols of Formula 1, its visit card. First race in Monte Carlo was held in 1929, since the shape of the track remained practically unchanged.

The leader of the championship for the first time this year on the stage will come Lewis Hamilton. Four wins in a row allowed the British to eliminate the consequences of gathering in Melbourne, but its advantage over the companion Mercedes AMG, Nico Rosberg is only three points. In Monte Carlo German hopes to strike back - a year ago it Rosberg won here first win for the team in the season, and Hamilton finished only fourth.

Peter Nygard recalls At the Monaco Grand Prix 1996

At the Monaco Grand Prix is the epitome of glamour. In the calendar, there is no more prestigious race, here come the stars, members of Royal families, the richest and most influential people of the world, but if we talk about journalists and photographers, all the calendar to work no place worse. Now press center is located in a former school building, but 20 years ago, we were forced to work on-site Parking. Agree, even this sounds not too glamorous.

Since then much has changed. Paddock was moved, he became more spacious, the pit lane expanded by more competent location of temporary garages, but even now for photographers is the hardest stage of the world championship. To move from one camera angle to another, it is necessary to spend eternity. Many points were blocked, and streets in Monte Carlo are a maze. However, all efforts pay off a great staff. Pictures from Monaco cannot be confused with any other.

Race 1996 most memorable because of the victory Olivier Panis - the first and only for himself in the Formula 1 and last for Ligier, and also due to the fact that before the finish got only three of the pilot. But for photographers Formula 1 this weekend memorable not only so.

At the weekend the weather was bad, the rain began, then stopped, but through free arrivals on Thursday it was still Sunny. It was the year when we first discovered the point from which you can shoot sunbathing girls on the background of speeding cars - I think almost all the fans of Formula 1 saw such frames. Since every good photographer must have in your archive is at least one frame.

For a long time I worked not only a photographer and a reporter, but also commented on the race for Danish television. We showed not all Grand Prix live, only selective. Regular broadcasting began in 1997, when Jan Magnussen has signed a contract with Stewart, but until then we showed only some of the stages. Naturally, At the Monaco Grand Prix was one of them.

I was paired with another commentator, acted as an expert, because by that time worked in the Formula 1 has almost 15 years. But this weekend to comment on what was happening was very difficult - especially the person who is called an expert. If in Monaco there is rain, race becomes a lottery. It is enough to remember what happened here in 2008, but in 1996 Grand Prix was even more unpredictable. I was forced to answer questions, give expert evaluation, though often he simply did not understand what was happening.

All the leaders gone. Michael Schumacher started from pole position, the Italian press had expected him to win, but he crashed the car on the first lap. At Damon hill dead engine, and the fastest on the highway driving reason Olivier. Conditions were constantly changing, the pilots were on different rubber, constantly got into an accident is more confusing race is hard to imagine. To top it off David Coulthard, who eventually finished second in the race passed in the helmet Michael. He himself with a helmet something happened, and Schumacher lent him one of their own.

The situation was complicated by the fact that at that time all the commentators were sitting in the same room. The teams were divided by thin walls. We liked the location close to the Finns. They are usually quiet, but the problem was that my colleague, that is an expert on Finnish TV station, was Keke Rosberg. He's a great guy, I have never had a problem with him, but he loves cigars. Ending one, he immediately lit another, and by the end of ether cigars smelled already the whole room. I am nothing, but my colleague over the air was not good. We kept telling Keke stop Smoking, but he just waved.

Grand Prix of Monaco with Marussia F1 Team

Chief race engineer Dave Greenwood about the features of the configuration of the machines "the Race in Monaco is unique from all points of view of the stage. Here we are always custom machines for maximum clamping force. Nowhere else angle of attack spoiler is not so large. Plus a special suspension settings, since coverage in Monaco uneven".

The circle on the highway in Monaco with max Chilton

Monaco - track for riders, very technical and very narrow, but if you can gather a circle, you feel the real satisfaction is probably on any other route is a good range does not give such pleasure.82328232About the wall in Monaco I always say that they should be treated to friends, to have as close as possible, but you keep your distance. This is a great track, breathing story - I always liked the historical route, but Monaco is a unique place.

On the route there are several key turns and one of them first. For city route is a very fast turn, and in Monaco seems that the rate is even higher. The main thing here is not to block the wheels and not to leave turning wider than necessary, because no "wider" is not there.

Another key turning the entrance to the " Casino" after lifting. Two completely blind turn in a row. After this section, you need to immediately shift to the right in order to avoid a huge bump. On a television picture it significantly not as good, but if to ride it in the next turn fit to be very difficult.

Another key rotation is hairpin. It is very important at the entrance to move as far right as possible, otherwise you will not be able to fit in the rotation at the output, even on the lowest speed.

The tunnel is an incredible place. Very fast, very close to the walls. We go through it at full throttle, but actually this turn. In previous years due to the fact that this is a closed space, there was very loud.

Another exciting section two Chicane poolside. Very quickly at the entrance, and then the machine begins, as I always say, to dance on the curb. One of the most spectacular places in the entire calendar.

The last turn is also very interesting. The road here with reverse bias, so that the machine how would fall on the external wall. Very easy to make mistakes. But this statement is true about almost every turn in Monaco".

In the calendar, there is no more strange and contradictory stage, but to win in Monaco everyone dreams. The slightest mistake ensures the gathering, the engine power and efficiency of aerodynamics almost no influence on the result, to overtake nowhere - full set of characteristics, opposite the requirements of modern Formula 1.

The championship has come to the earth Principality in the year of his birth. Stage 1950 ended with the victory of Juan-Manuel Fangio, who rode the race distance in 3 hours and 13 minutes at an average speed of 98.7 km/H. Already said that the track was too dangerous, in 1952 in training died Italian Luigi Fagioli, and the city circuit for a few years left the calendar, but the Formula 1 was needed its own jewel, because in 1955 he returned forever.

For six decades, there has been a lot of accidents, however, in the race of the championship of the world160 died only one pilot, Italian Lorenzo Bandini, and two flew into the water. We can assume that At the Monaco Grand Prix is one of the safest stages in the calendar.

Two of the first session of free-race, according to tradition, in Monte Carlo held on Thursday. On Friday racers of Formula 1 track did not go, but races are held youth series.

This is the slow track on the calendar, the difference between the best around and utter failure is extremely small, so you have to risk. Monaco is almost impossible to overtake, the outcome of the race in many ways depends on the qualification and the first turn.

Nine times in the last ten years in Monaco won the racer, which started from pole position. The only exception is the season of 2008, when the qualification won Felipe Massa and chaotic rain race, Lewis Hamilton.

There were two statistical exceptions - in 2006 and 2012, the best time in qualifying showed Michael Schumacher, but was fined, and from pole position started Alonso and Webber, who won the race.

Soft rubber compounds - Pirelli for the first time in the season will be offered to the teams a couple of Soft/SuperSoft - provoking understeer, it is necessary to compensate, stronger put rear tires that and so much wear out due to frequent acceleration.

Timo Glock "Monaco is a crazy place to Formula 1, but it makes the race unique. Narrow track, lack of security zones, many bumps you need to stay on the path, avoiding contact with the barrier. As on any other route, to be fast, you need to attack, but the difference is that Monaco does not forgive errors - the slightest mistake and you're out of the fight, but if the circle turned out perfect, you feel incomparable pleasure.

The route is not too demanding physical conditions of drivers, but here we need a great concentration and accuracy on each circle.

First Spanish step Formula1601 in 1951 hosted the six-kilometer street circuit of Pedralbes. It was the finals, Juan-Manuel Fangio on Alfa Romeo and Alberto Askari Ferrari were fighting for the title, but in skuderii was wrong with rubber, and the race together with the title was won by Fangio. Three years later Pedralbes again took the national Grand Prix, but the accident in Le Mans'55 led to the revision of safety requirements, and the track was disqualified from the championship.

In 1966 the Catalans have restored the old city ring Montjuic, contrasting him to the Jarama racing circuit located near Madrid. In 1968 race was held in the Haram, it won Graham hill, and a year later stage again held in Montjuic Park, to the finish line got only five riders of the fourteen won Jackie Stewart.

A few years trails alternated, and in 1975 came the scandal in Friday pilots refused to go on the track in Montjuic Park because of mismatched standards of safety barriers. For the same reason on Saturday reduced qualification, and the race was stopped at the 30th round of the planned 75, after the accident of the Rolf Stommelen and the deaths of four people. Racers then has received only half put points, and the Formula1601 left Montjuic.

In October 1986, the Parliament of Catalonia was concerned by the return of Formula1601 on their land, creating a Board for the construction of the circuit. However, the way the people of Barcelona at some time have passed the representatives of the South - on the new highway in the town of Jerez de La Frontera national Grand Prix was played from 1986 to 1990.160

However, the Catalans from his didn't back was bought a plot of land to the North of the city, and on February 24, 1989 laid the first stone in the Foundation of the Circuit de Catalunya. The sponsors are the Royal Automobile Club, the government of Catalonia and the municipality of the town of Montmelo.

Five days after the official opening ceremony, September 10, 1991 was the first race touring cars, which won a former racer1601 Luis Perez-Fat, and on September 29 in Catalonia after a 16-year hiatus, he returned Formula1601. The complex was built on the most advanced technology and was immediately included in the calendar. The good location of the route allowed the teams to get comfortable and relatively warm winter test area in the centre of Europe.

In Barcelona abrasive asphalt, so the engineers Pirelli will offer the toughest teams couple of compositions - Hard and Medium, this year this combination was used only in Malaysia.

Spanish often called the best route to assess the effectiveness of the machines - it is demanding aerodynamics and includes different types of turns, so if the machine is fast in Barcelona, it will be competitive in most of the other tracks.

Next week after the Grand Prix, on Tuesday, in Barcelona will be the second this year series of two-day tests during the season in which the team will be able to compare the effectiveness of solutions taking into account the information gathered in the course of the weekend, and to work on solving the problems.

In 2012, the Pastor Maldonado started from pole position in Barcelona after exclusion from the minutes of Hamilton and won the race, having gained the first victory for Williams with the Grand Prix of Brazil, 2004. After an hour after the finish in boxes Williams has been a serious fire is ignited the fuel. Fortunately, without casualties and serious consequences. Employees are many teams helped to extinguish the flames, and at the next Grand Prix provided equipment to replace burned-out at Williams.

In 2013 the race at the home arena after starting from the fifth place was won by Fernando Alonso and until this last victory of Spaniard in the composition of Ferrari.

You know, in the morning when the air is still fresh in the area 11-12 turns you can feel the smell of chocolate - I think the fact that near the factory area is probably one of the factories - confectionery.

Evolution Ferrari 412 T1, 1994

Evolution Ferrari 412 T1, 1994

06/02/2014

History of Ferrari is inseparably linked with the history of Formula1601 is the only team, who participated in all seasons of the world championship, and the first single in Maranello racing machine was built for Formula1601.

In the traditional winter historical project, together with the authoritative Italian expert, author of books about the history of Ferrari Paolo D'alessio, we decided to tell to the readers nonf1.ru about the peculiarities of all the machines , showing them the example of the evolution of the Formula 1.

In 1994, the FIA banned the greater part of electronic systems, embedded commands in recent years, including traction control, ABS and active suspension. For the first time since 1983 were admitted refueling during the race, accordingly, changed the parameters of the engine and the size of the fuel tank. Teams have to build a machine from scratch, but for the Ferrari is even benefited John Barnard and so created a new machine from scratch.

In 1994 Ferrari was actually a completely new team. It was led by Jean Todt, as a technical Director Barnard performed, and the chief designer again became Gustav Brunner. A new car called the Ferrari 412 T1. Letter «T» in the title, as in the case of 312 T in the seventies, meant trasversale it. «transverse» and spoke about the use of cross-located gearbox. In the numeric index of the 12 - cylinder, 4 - number of valves in each of them.

A legacy of ideas and in the car left. For years of work in Benetton Barnard had reformed their idea raised fairing, making its design is much more extreme. The Ferrari he has not abandoned this concept, so that the machine was outwardly similar to the predecessor. But significantly changed the shape of the side pontoons.

The machine has a much longer wheelbase, and the size of the cockpit, in accordance with the new rules increased. Grand Prix of San Marino debuted a new engine, designed by Claudio Lombardi and Osamu goto. In qualifying version of its capacity exceeding 800 HP is already comparable with engines .

During the championship in the design constantly altered. Mainly the author of them was Brunner - it was he who developed the model, whereas Barnard was responsible for the overall concept. The most serious modernization of 412 T1 suffered at the seventh Grand Prix of the season in France. The new version was called 412 T1B. It is on account of the only victory of Ferrari in 1994. The first four years.

Ferrari 412 T1

As shown by the letter T in the title of this model Ferrari, in 1994 in Maranello back in fashion transverse transmission - like box in combination with Subarus 12-cylinder engine in the 1970s was used for successful 312 T.

But the box 412 T1 lies in the composite structure is only one of the novelties. Like all machines John Barnard, 412 T1 was a true concentrate of innovation, starting from the front suspension, which was attached to the chassis by means of bearings, with the help of flexible plate.

Another feature of the machine - unusual aerodynamic shape, especially in the part of the side air intakes, which became echo elliptic holes Ferrari 156 F1 1961, which acted Phil hill. Decision elegant, but side pontoons prevented optimal circulation of air in the rear of the chassis.

When Barnard knew it, he had to urgently create a second version of the model, dubbed 412 T1B - debut on the Grand Prix of France in 1994. Version «B» was equipped with a more narrow and short side pontoons and wide deflectors on the sides, diverting the flow of air.

This version of the car was much more competitive than the one that was used at the beginning of the year, so that after four years of drought Ferrari winning again in Formula 1, by Gerhard Berger, who finished the first Grand Prix of Germany, 1994. And catch could be even greater, if in Monza Jean Blanc not missed virtually guaranteed the first place.

The results of performances Ferrari 412 T1 in Formula 1 races

Changes to the FIA in the regulations, have led to sad consequences powerful but poorly managed due to the prohibition of electronics machines provoke a dangerous accident. In Imola this led to the death of a young Roland and three-time world champion Ayrton Senna. avoided tragedies, but happening has been affected by it after the first Grand Prix of the season on the tests at Mugello Jean Blanc was involved in a serious accident, injuring his back, and two Grand Prix is out - he was temporarily replaced Nikola .

New Ferrari 412 T1 couldn't compete with the leaders, but the pilots regularly fall on the podium, and the Berger and does finished first. Partly, it again became the consequence of the problems of rivals near the Austrian stood on the podium pilots Ligier Olivier Panis and Eric Bernard, and it was the first podium in his career and for - yet, and the first points.

At the same time we should not forget that the qualification of the Grand Prix Berger Blanc and won the first row of the starting field. Further pilots Ferrari started from the first place twice. Reliability, however, is still the Achilles heel of the team during the season the racers have fallen by the wayside 15 times. However, Ferrari manage to finish the season in third place in the Cup of designers, ahead of McLaren, and Gerhard Berger became the third in the individual championship, losing only Michael Schumacher and hill.

Evolution Ferrari F93 A, 1993

Evolution Ferrari F93 A, 1993

05/02/2014

History of Ferrari is inseparably linked with the history of Formula1601 is the only team, who participated in all seasons of the world championship, and the first single in Maranello racing machine was built for Formula1601.

In the traditional winter historical project, together with the authoritative Italian expert, author of books about the history of Ferrari Paolo D'alessio, we decided to tell to the readers nonf1.ru about the peculiarities of all the machines , showing them the example of the evolution of the Formula 1.

The main thing for Ferrari in 1993 was an event that actually happened in the end of 1991 it was then President of the company was Luca di Montezemolo, in the mid-1970s, who led the team of Formula 1. This time di Montezemolo not lead directly , but could be for Ferrari this new leader, lost after the death of Enzo Ferrari in 1988, having started to gradually restore the shattered during this time management structure.

Machine 1993, F93 A newly built Harvey and Jean-Claude , but already during the season were both dismissed. Instead Montezemolo returned in the command John Barnard, with whom she broke up a few years ago due to internal contradictions. Barnard again refused to move to Italy, insisting that will work in his office in England, in the County of Surrey. Montezemolo agreed, and Barnard opened in Guildford unit team Ferrari Design and Development.

Despite the fact that the new machine even within the team is considered as a transition, it is, nonetheless, had a number of interesting solutions. So, F93 became A single machine, the Formula 1 history of Ferrari, the design of which was used for active suspension not counting actually the prototype F92 AT, piloted by Nikola at the end of 1992. During the season the engine again received pneumatic valves, bringing its capacity up to 740 HPC.

In terms of aerodynamics change was not so much constructors only refused from unsuccessful decisions of the past season. Disappeared «double bottom», and the side pontoons gained a traditional form. However, Ferrari in 1993 looked somewhat awkward - but not due to aerodynamic forms, and because of the colors the traditionally red car, a wide horizontal white bar.

Ferrari F93 A

Four years after the noisy divorce with Ferrari, John Barnard, a designer, a lot achieved with McLaren, but could not find a common language with Maranello, was again called in President Luca di Montezemolo. The task that was before him - the return of Ferrari on the first position.

Barnard known as one of the best designers, but building a new machine, we need time. Given this, the team created a transitional model F93 A. This machine is constructed on the basis of F92 A, but without «double bottom» and unnecessary frills aerodynamics, but with active suspension in the style of Williams. Of course, a few months Barnard was not able to catch up from the championship machines, but things are decidedly better than in 1992-M. In Monte Carlo Jean Blanc, and in Hungary, Gerhard Berger podiums, even if only on the lower level.

To complete the reconstruction team in the summer di Montezemolo has invited the new leader of the team - Jean Todt, which in previous years has achieved dominance of Peugeot in the world rally championship in the races of endurance.

Recipe, who suggested Todt, is quite simple work, work and work again. At Monza, the Grand Prix of Italy, was presented the first results of this work, the Alesi finished second behind Ayrton Senna. A glimmer of light after so many colorless, faceless race.

The results of performances Ferrari F93 A in Formula 1 races

Although the design of the Ferrari F93 was A conservative in pinned great hopes on the active suspension. In 1992, all the successes Williams FW14B linked up with the active suspension today it is obvious that the case was not only in this machine, built not too known then Adrian Newey, was the most aerodynamically efficient and very organic, and the development of such systems is engaged in all the leading teams.

But with active suspension machine Ferrari seriously inferior Williams, McLaren and Benetton. About a struggle with them was out of the question, that the success of the team again came as a consequence of failures rivals. The pilots are for the season withdrew 19 times - and often it is because of suspension. Best result of the season was the second place Jean-Blanc in Monza after Simple gatherings, Senna and Schumacher, and largely thanks to him, the team managed to snatch fourth place in the Cup of designers of Ligier.

Evolution Ferrari 312 T5, 1980

17/01/2014

History of Ferrari is inseparably linked with the history of Formula1601 is the only team, who participated in all seasons of the world championship, and the first single in Maranello racing machine was built for Formula1601.

In the traditional winter historical project, together with the authoritative Italian expert, author of books about the history of Ferrari Paolo D'alessio, we decided to tell to the readers nonf1.ru about the peculiarities of all the machines , showing them the example of the evolution of the Formula 1.

The success of the 1979 proved force of the Italian team, but at the same time demonstrated that the concept embodied in machines Ferrari generation exhausted. For ten years the powerful 12-cylinder boxer engine to provide team definite advantage against the British teams, most of which all these years has used a compact and reliable motor Ford Cosworth DFV. But the layout and dimensions of this powertrain imposed serious constraints on the development of aerodynamics machine, and the newly emerging deprived of Italians superiority in power.

In , however, do not hurry to refuse the acquired schemes, and this was the cause of their catastrophic defeat in 1980. The team is still one of the most powerful engine almost all contenders still enjoy the DFV, but the difference in the level clamping force is too great. Trying to recoup, designers is even used for blowing machine wind tunnel Pininfarina, that in those years was a rarity, but all in vain.

In addition, a big problem for Ferrari became quickly and progressive team Renault with its turbo engine. And business not only that the French cars are already faster Italian, but that Renault too used tyres Michelin. Guided by national priorities, French adapted their products to the specifications of turbocharged engines, and as a result of its rubber ill suited to cars Ferrari. Seeing all this, the designers already during the championship began to prepare a new car 126 equipped with a turbo engine, and it was even used in the qualification before Grand Prix of Italy, but the start was not issued.

Ferrari 312 T5 was the last model of the series 312 T. However in the history of there was still another project, 312 T6. It was developed in 1977 and received its name because it was chassis. On this idea Italian designers prompted Tyrrell P34, however, unlike the British machine, 312 T6 there were only two wheels, and behind - four, and they were placed on the same axis Of course, such a machine is not conformed to the regulations, as its width exceed the maximum allowable dimensions. However, the Scuderia held its large-scale trials, in which accepted the participation of both its pilot of those years - Niki Lauda and Carlos . The results, however, were disappointing - 312 T6 poorly managed and did not differ in reliability. After a dangerous accident, which got the experimental machine , the project was scrapped.

Ferrari 312 T5

double success 1979, Ferrari presents a new model designed for the next season, after a few days after the previous one, convinced that could keep the one on the sides of their cars within a few years. Never has the forecasts were not so wrong 312 T5 was hopeless project and in 1980 ignominiously completed technological cycle models T with transversely located transmission.

312 T5 not enough speed, its aerodynamics significantly inferior to the best representatives of the epoch wing-car coupe put a lot of restrictions. gained only a few points in the championship of the world, second160 Williams, Ligier, Brabham and Renault. The poor performance 312 T5 also influenced the behavior of tyres Michelin-optimized machine Renault equipped with .

Due to this fiasco Enzo Ferrari decided to abandon the development of the atmospheric engines, focusing on the original 6- engine with turbocharger, work on which began in Maranello.

The results of performances Ferrari 312 T5 in Formula 1 races

Ferrari 312 T5 were an updated version of last year's car. But if in 1979 pilots Ferrari, jodie and Gilles Villeneuve, competed for the title only with each other, in 1980, only five times managed to score points, and their best result in race became the fifth place. During the championship, the situation was getting worse and worse, and on the penultimate stage, which took place in Canada, couldn't even qualify. He took part in the final race of the season, but after that ended his career.

By the end of the season in the Cup of designers of Ferrari received only 8 points, finishing in 10th place behind there was only Alfa Romeo, returning to Formula 1. Victory in both standings of the championship confidently won a team Williams, advocated by Alan Jones, Vice became the champion Nelson Piquet at Brabham.

Evolution Ferrari 312 T4, 1979

Evolution Ferrari 312 T4, 1979

16/01/2014

History of Ferrari is inseparably linked with the history of Formula1601 is the only team, who participated in all seasons of the world championship, and the first single in Maranello racing machine was built for Formula1601.

In the traditional winter historical project, together with the authoritative Italian expert, author of books about the history of Ferrari Paolo D'alessio, we decided to tell to the readers nonf1.ru about the peculiarities of all the machines , showing them the example of the evolution of the Formula 1.

After the transitional version 312 T3 in 1979 Ferrari unveiled a new model - 312 T4. This machine because of irregular angular forms often called one of the most ugly in the history of , but it was one of the most successful.

Not the most attractive appearance of the machine was a necessary measure by engineers team. Previous championship clearly demonstrated the advantages of ground-effect, however, Ferrari could not simply copy this decision. Machine Lotus had quite a small cockpit, on the sides of which were placed special pontoons with shaped head and aerodynamic «skirts». However, to do so narrow Ferrari cockpit was impossible prevented wide boxer engine.

To compensate for this, the designers had to increase the length of the pontoons and their forms have become «chopped». «Skirts» also appeared, but to achieve a ground-effect designers and failed. However, powerful engine, universal suspension and very effective radial tyres Michelin allowed Ferrari strongly look at the routes of all types and win in three bets championship.

The title became a South African jodie . He succeeded Carlos , who moved to the Lotus, taking the place of the deceased at the end of 1977 Ronnie Peterson. The main competitor in the race for the title was his own companion, Gilles Villeneuve. They won the same number of wins, but a South African was much more stable. As admitted later , racers Ferrari were forbidden to compete with each other on the track, and although in Monza, where victory jodie guaranteed him a title, a canadian, had the opportunity to attack, he did not.

It's interesting that during the 1979 Ferrari've driven an automatic gearbox however, using the model 312 T3, which shifting occurred by using the buttons on the steering wheel. The tests of novelty well proved itself both in terms of lap time, and in terms of reliability, but I did not like Gilles and long forgotten. As a result of this decision appeared in Formula 1 only 10 years at Ferrari 1989.

Ferrari 312 T4

In the late 1950s Enzo Ferrari had to surrender in question layout, in 1973, his team copied the English coupe monocoque, and in 1979, the Scuderia was forced to capitulate before the technical superiority of the Lotus, a year before submitting a machine from the ground effect, the so-called wing-car, I.E. «car wing».

Model 312 T4, the first Ferrari of a new type, dominated in 1979, although the concept of wing-car was implemented only half. A wide boxer engine type boxer who Ferrari cars were equipped with 1970, prevented placement on the sides of the chassis special channels, which, along with «skirts», were to generate downforce. However, a car is never stopped. In this transition period, Ferrari still manages to remain the leader, thanks to the motor which reached 515 PS at 12300 rpm, and an excellent radial tyres Michelin.

The true secret of the advantages 312 T4, once again, however, lies in the exemplary reliability of the cars from Maranello. Although in the beginning of the season Ligier technically superior , and, starting with the Grand Prix of Belgium, the fastest cars are Williams, Cup of constructors wins Ferrari, and the victory in the individual event goes Jody , his running mate, Gilles Villeneuve.

The results of performances Ferrari 312 T4 in Formula 1 races

Ferrari 312 T4 was used in 1979, starting with the South African Grand Prix, which was the third stage of the season. Already in his first race it provided to pilots winning a double, and in the next race, the situation repeated itself. The winner of both times was Villeneuve. This success, however, was the result of retirements competitors, primarily in the lead in the championship Jacques , speaking for Ligier.

Soon two victories in a row managed to win and , but this was due, above all, technical problems rivals. In the second half of the championship pilot Alan Williams, Jones managed to win four of the race, and three in a row, but as most other he came down, he was not able to overtake the riders .

The idea of building a race track in the centre of the mountain forest Eifel, 80 kilometres from Bonn and close to the Belgian border, belonged to the chief master of Cologne Konrad , became after the war, the Federal Chancellor of the FRG. He persuaded the Federal government to allocate 15 million marks in 1925 in the village nrburg came the builders, and in 1926 was the first race, which in the rain won Rudolf . A month later the Nurburgring took the Grand Prix of Germany, and hundreds of thousands of people - unprecedented for those times the figure watched the victory Otto Merz driving a Mercedes-Benz.

The original version was very long range more than 22 kilometers, complexity 73 turns and high altitude differences 300 metres. In 1951, the track was included in a calendar of the world championship, and until 1976 has received Grand Prix of Germany. Circle lasted for more than seven minutes, riders complained about the non-observance of safety standards, and a terrible accident Nicki in 1976 led to closing of the circuit.

The cost of modernization nrnburgring amounted to more than 62 million, and in 1984 circuit again accepted the participants of the championship. The length of the circle decreased to 4.5 kilometers, difference of heights up to 56 meters, and the number of turns - to 14. Pilots were not better opinion about race characteristics of the route, having called it "boring" and "too perfect". After a couple of years Nurburgring again excluded from the championship.

Before the start of the season in 1995, the organizers held another renovation, Nurburgring included in the calendar under the title of the Grand Prix of Europe, and in 1997 there was held the Grand Prix of Luxembourg, however, after the scandal at the award ceremony in Jerez, when the mayor tried without preliminary agreement on the podium, the European stage returned to Germany.

From October 2001 to may 2002 on the circuit again worked builders was remade the first sector and built new stands. Nurburgring became 700 metres longer decreased and the number of laps. Modernization of the highway cost to the organizers of 50 million Euros.

Before the 2007 season calendar attended two German track - track and Hockenheim, but due to financial and organizational problems it was decided to alternate steps - last year the race was held in Hockenheim, and this year's Grand Prix of Germany will again host track.

In 2009, the circuit again seriously reworked - was built a new complex of buildings around the track, which was to turn Nurburgring in the year-round entertainment center, but the plans of the organizers failed - they declared bankruptcy this year stage is cost only thanks to the personal support of Ecclestone

The Nurburgring is a successful mix of slow and medium-speed turns, track provokes understeer and this factor engineers try to compensate when configuring aerodynamics and suspension. The trail is not too hard on the brakes, requires an average clamping force and excuse the faults of the pilots. The weather in the mountains is unpredictable and can change almost instantly. Classic European cars.

At the Nurburgring tenacious, not too abrasive asphalt track is located in the mountains at an altitude above sea level, second only to Sao Paulo, thin air reduces the performance of the motor. Enough fuel to seriously affect the propagation time of a circle. Overtaking is hard here, the chances of attack is, in the first turn and in , but two zones DRS facilitate racers struggle for position.

The Pirelli bring you to the Nurburgring compositions Medium white colour and Soft yellow colour, a combination that this year only used in China.

at the Nurburgring in the framework of the Grand Prix of Germany did not act,

traveled only at the free races

Anthony Davidson «I like the German track and track - one of the best. In the first corner, the width is increased - this can be seen in Hockenheim. Wider track increases the chances in the struggle for position - even if you are logged in turn, it is possible to successfully complete the maneuver. I love the smooth slopes, which can be attributed Nurburgring, but it spoils at the end of the circle, which makes it impossible to pass the distance in a good pace.

The fifth and sixth turns the area «old school», here a more efficient machine gets the advantage. If she allows you to attack the curb, you can play a couple of tenths, and then later brake prior to the seventh rotation, referring to the curb and output. Amazing track, there is a sense that it is constructed of incredibly talented architect, although its configuration changes over time».
