Timo Glock to Return to Formula 1 Are you kidding me

The ex-pilot of Formula 1 Timo Glock stunned the Internet with his photo in the cockpit of the car racing series. This photo German as if hinting at its return to the Royal race. However, it turned out that it was a picture from the simulator.Timo Glock "It was a joke, which is picked up by the media. I did and never replaced. The news spread across the world like a rocket I wasn't expecting it Be calm. I will remain in the DTM, where will fly over the BMW with such a great partner like Deutsche Post, so don't worry.Glock competed in Formula 1 in 2004, 2008-2012, On account of the German three podium in the team Toyota.

Timo Glock Mick Schumacher, the second Michael

The ex-pilot of Formula 1 Timo Glock, now acting in the DTM, has witnessed two victories Mika on Schumacher Lausitzring over the weekend, and then called a young German second Michael.Timo Glock "I know Michael, so I am interested to watch Mick. It is very similar to his father in everything. I even thought that if he wore the red helmet, it would be indistinguishable from the father, even openly. Similarly, Mick is sitting in the cockpit, in the same way piloting. His eyes are surprisingly similar to his father's. When Mick in the car, it seems that everything around you ceases to exist for him. He stubbornly goes to his goal.Last year Schumacher showed good results in Formula 4, but now he's just impressed everyone with his progress. Those who bet on him, not lost. He has all the qualities in a short time become a champion of Formula 1 ambition, speed, and most importantly - stability.I think next year he should move to Formula 3, to try their hand at more powerful machines with a high level of competition among the pilots. I like the way he works, oblivious to the pressure. The guy is extremely calm.

Timo Glock Grosjean made a prudent step

Ex-pilot of Formula 1 Timo Glock believes that the novel Grosjean made the right move by going to Haas.Timo Glock "Grosjean has passed, not in a new team, and in Haas, the stable financing with a powerful and rich history in NASCAR. It is a solid organization, a company that is able to fight for victory.Lotus now in a difficult situation, but the Ferrari engines are better than Renault. That is why I believe that Grosjean made the right decision".

Timo Glock Formula 1 has become very boring

Ex-pilot of Formula 1 Timo Glock believes that the Royal race became too boring and monotonous.Timo Glock "With me all agree that Formula 1 is becoming more boring. Now nobody can compete with Mercedes, except Ferrari. Two favourites.Take the DTM. There is a continuing level of expenditure at a minimum level, giving equal opportunities for competition. In Formula 1 only the rich can fight, and the poor look them in the trail".

Timo Glock the Weight surprised me

The ex-pilot of Formula 1 Timo Glock admitted that comment Felipe Mass that he prevented the Brazilian to win the title in the season of 2008, it was somewhat surprising.Timo Glock "These words surprised me and made him smile. Already after so many years and he still can't calm down. I don't even know what to say.As for the current situation, Rosberg should not seek help on the side, he can only rely on the technical problem on the car of Hamilton".Recall that in the final race of the season-2008 Lewis Hamilton needed to finish fourth, to become the champion. For a few laps to go, the British fell back to fifth position, but in the last corner of the last lap overtook Timo Glock and finished fourth.

Weight is not going to help Rosberg to win the title

Felipe Massa said he was not going to help the Nico Rosberg to win the title in the last race of the season.Recall that after SE Brazil German said that he may need "help" the Masses, which could take away points from Lewis Hamilton in the final race."I don't help anyone. I told Rosberg I want to win races, not to help you. Nobody helped me when I almost won the championship, one German only hurt me lots of hints at the dramatic end of 2008, when he lost the title after Timo Glock missed Lewis Hamilton in the last turn.I think that Hamilton really deserves the title. But sometimes things that we have often seen, says the Lot.

Briefing FIA in Sochi on the incident with Bianchi

Briefing FIA in Sochi on the incident with Bianchi

On Friday evening the representatives of FIA President Jean Todt, race Director Charlie whiting, senior medical officer Jean-Charles Drinks and coordinator of a team of rescuers Jan Roberts - held a press conference dedicated to the accident Jules Bianchi in Suzuka.

The press conference lasted for almost an hour and a half. The journalists were shown the footage of the cameras in the seventh rotation, which shows that Sutil and Bianchi flew off the track in one place, but Jules was not deployed, he tried to catch the car - in the end it made straight with locked wheels directly to the tractor. Filming in the hall is strictly prohibited, and those who still tried to shoot lost their cameras and phones.

Representatives of the FIA commented on the actions of the administration of the race and marshals on the track, but the first to press asked Jean Todt.

Jean Todt of Course, all still overwhelmed with emotion. We wanted to hold this meeting with you, to comment on the tragedy that occurred this past weekend in Suzuka. You know its consequences Jules Bianchi at the moment continues to battle for his life in hospital near Suzuka, mie province. We feel that it would be appropriate to share information with you, to answer your questions.

To start with I would like to give some explanation, then my people will be able to answer your questions. I asked Charlie Whiting, the race Director of the FIA, to make a detailed report about what happened last weekend. I got it this morning. He will comment on it for you. I also asked the Chairman of the security Commission to establish an expert group to comment on the report and make suggestions to similar to what happened last Sunday, is never repeated.

We know that motor sport is dangerous. Thanks to the huge efforts in recent years, there were no serious incidents, except for what happened with Felipe Massa in Budapest in 2009. What happened with Jules last Sunday, perhaps the most difficult in recent years the incident.

To the left of me sat Professor Jean-Charles Drinking and Dr. Jan Roberts. As you know, they were involved in the decision making process before the race. Ian Roberts, when the accident occurred, was with Jules in the car on the way to the hospital. They both remained in the hospital until Tuesday. Tuesday Gerard Sayan, President of the FIA Institute, arrived in Suzuka and worked closely with Japanese doctors, along with another Italian Professor, who helped to coordinate efforts with the family Jules. This is the situation today.

Now I would like to give the floor to Charlie Whiting that will acquaint you with various aspects of what happened.

Charlie whiting showing members of the press on the screen shots from fixed cameras on the track in Suzuka we have a couple of videos that we would like to show. We ask you to postpone mobile phones, not to shoot. We want to show you the record from stationary cameras.

The first camera 11, this is the first part of the seventh rotation, which can be seen as went off the track Adrian Sutil. You can see that the trajectory drier than the rest of the painting, but due to the increased rain water begins to flow and trajectory. When the cars drove a little wider in this place. You see that Adrian came to this part of the canvas and lost control of the machine. It hurt a little more wet part of the track. At this moment he is behind Jules - he loses control on machine and it expands.

If we flash a picture on a lap later, we will see that Jules happened something very similar.

You can see that Jules loses control of the machine. He arrives on the same wet area, but it does not expand as Adrian. It begins to slide, but it adjusts the machine, and then the car moves along a slightly different trajectory.

This video shows the beginning of two incidents. You see how the machine Jules starts to go sideways, and then he corrects.

With this camera we will show both the incident. You saw the beginning of the departure of Adrian, you will now see an accident. We scroll through the video, you will see the tractor. Let's see all the videos. In the background you can see fluttering flag and yellow. At the moment we haven't replaced him on a double yellow.

When the tractor starts to move, we changed the light on "double yellow" on the scoreboard. Now you can see and actually double yellow flags. As the tractor and the machine Sauber is on this side of the post 12, the yellow flags. Because the incident occurred after it. But, as you can see, as soon as they lift the car, move back, and he passes the post, the signal changes from yellow to green.

Now you see the green flags, because the post is already after the incident site. Now you will see a machine Jules.

This is the video that was available to us. I thought it would be constructive if you will see him. Now I can answer your questions, but first I wanted you to see it.

Question Charlie, can you explain what is the difference between the conditions when you decide that enough double yellow flags, and those in which you release the car security Because much has been said about the fact that it could appear on the track.

Charlie whiting We put double yellow flags, because they thought that with the consequences of an incident could cope without the use of machine safety. The next step is, of course, the issue onto the machine security, but because the machine Adrian Sutil was away from the road, this was a natural decision on our part in similar circumstances. We did not see the need to release the track car security at the moment.

Question have you ever Seen a telemetry with this machine Dropped if he speed under double yellow flags on this sector, in the area of the double yellow flags What was his speed, when he flew off the track

Charlie whiting I know what speed he flew off the track. We have seen data from all machines.

A lot of cars drove through the sector with double yellow flags, but not all slowed down so. Some slowed down quite a bit, some slowed down much. I don't think we will go into detail how much slowed Jules compared with others. We have these data. He slowed down. There is a matter of degree.

Question do we Know how fast he crashed into a tractor

Charlie whiting it is Impossible to get accurate data when the machine is flying through the gravel. You can only use the GPS data, but to count on them really hard. This is not a good idea to analyze such datauntil until a full investigation into the incident, a detailed analysis of the video as well as GPS data. So far we are not able to speak with confidence about what was the speed at the moment of collision with a tractor. It would be too early for us to tell you the exact figures.

Question it is Clear that retroactively make decisions much easier, but in retrospect, do you feel you could have done something differently And knowing what you know now, what lessons you can learn

Charlie whiting Yes, I think there are some conclusions that we need to do. We want to involve all teams and all pilots to ensure that it will be a good, well-designed and realized during many years of ideas. I think one of the most important aspects is that it might be better to pick up the pilots the right to determine how much they need to slow down in the event of such incidents.

It is better to create a system that is understandable for all, which would determine the extent to which the machine is set to slow in such conditions. On this we are now working. Tomorrow morning will be a meeting with all teams to discuss this possibility and method of use a kind of speed limit. Most likely, it will not be a specific limit, but, as I see it, a way of controlling the speed of pilots with clear rules and boundaries.

Question Charlie, if you manage to develop a system that could control the speed of vehicles, does it mean that the safety car will leave the track much less

Charlie whiting Yes, I think it's possible. But it would have the same effect. If you force all drivers to slow down to a certain temp, they will retain their positions relative to each other - so that would be about the same as the first two rounds at the check-out safety car. If Directorate of race requires "a short intervention, then perhaps in such cases, you can get by without car security.

However, in some situations, the safety car will be necessary. Sometimes it is necessary to control the speed of vehicles in certain areas of the track.

Question In a situation like in Suzuka, when the rain is getting stronger, how difficult is it to determine whether pilots react to signals in a changing environment

Charlie whiting This is harder, but not impossible. The system that we have, uses data from previous circles, comparing them. She "knows"how the tempo slows down or speeds up. We try to analyze the last few laps, the system can detect and show us pilots who, perhaps not enough has slowed in the current circumstances. We can then explore the situation in more detail. If the race is dry, you can trust this data with greater confidence. But because the conditions Suzuka has changed, we would have to analyze the data after the race in any case.

Question Who decided to send a tractor on the highway, and who decided to post a green flag

Charlie whiting the Tractor was sent to the scene by the race direction. If the machine is stuck in the gravel, obviously it should be taken therefrom. This was done immediately. The marshals were instructed to enter the ring and begin to evacuate the car.

The solution for the green flag was made by the Marshal on duty. As soon as the tractor with the machine Sauber was behind this point, the correct signal is green. He was yellow until, as the tractor was still ahead of the post, and changed to green when he was behind. These decisions are always taken by the flag marshals.

Question Charlie, two questions. The first is why it was decided to hold the race, if you knew about the approaching Typhoon Second - Felipe Massa said that was screaming on the radio that the race was stopped. Did you hear that

Charlie whiting For a start. The start time of the race is not a matter of discussion by the FIA. I suggested to the organizers to consider moving the start to an earlier time in order still to hold her, because the forecast was worse than the weather turned out to be actually. They didn't want to do that. I warned them that we will not hold the race if the conditions are unsafe, and that the probability that they will not race. They said, "No, we want to leave the start time at three o'clock". For me, the start time of the race in no way connected with the incident we are discussing.

The second question was about Felipe Massa. No, we have not heard that he was screaming on the radio. We now have pereslushala all that Felipe said. I think what he said to you, not entirely true. I have not heard that he was screaming on the radio. He mentioned only that "conditions on the road worse." It was the only thing he said on the radio. I don't think it means "to shout on the radio". He said that conditions were deteriorating, but we usually.

We don't listen to all the messages on the radio that the pilots pass - it's just impossible, so we rely on team who are informed if their pilots have something important to tell us. I'm sure they give us isn't all that said pilots For example some pilots have any concerns about visibility, after he had left the safety car and before the race was stopped, but only two teams told us that the visibility of their pilots have serious problems.

Question One Williams

Charlie whiting Yes, one of them is Williams. But, as far as I know, Felipe said that conditions deteriorate even before the appearance on the track machine security, and treated his comments rather to the fact that increased rain. The message about the poor visibility was later.

Question On various roads you use the tow truck of different manufacturers, some of them large balances that are just at the level of the head of the racer. You are not going now to change the approach For example, to only use cranes

Charlie whiting this is not so simple. As you know, the wrecker - in this case, the tractor must be heavy enough to lift the machine, it should be high enough ground clearance. He has opposed or not depends on the design. Such tractors we have successfully used for over 20 years, or even longer, and I don't think they should be changed urgently.

We had an hour discussion with riders, but we've discussed this issue, and one option that was suggested - this equipment evacuators kind of protective skirts. This option is worth considering, and we will do it.

As for the cranes, their range is limited. For example, in the 7th rotation Suzuki we'd need four or five taps are guaranteed to cover the entire area. If you remember Montreal, there is a crane in the area of exit of the 4th turn. But he can act only 50 metres from the wall, so sometimes you have to manually push in the area of his reach. For example, on the track in Monaco a lot of taps, but there and marshals a lot, and there is a danger that someone could be hit by a car. So the complexity is, therefore, we believe that all these issues require detailed discussion.

Question do You think that show a green flag was a mistake

Charlie whiting No, it was absolutely the right signal, since this flag was found after the accident. You must understand it does not mean that as soon as you see the green signal, you should start to attack in full force. You can do that at the moment when at head with a green flag. The same applies to yellow flags if on the first turn yellow flags, it does not mean that you should drop the speed, while with them, not at head. So you can prabhavati speed and begin to overtake only when it reaches the green flags.

Question please Explain the situation with the delivery of Jules medical center. We saw the helicopter rose into the air, but the driver was taken by ambulance.

Jean-Charles Drinks Usually on the road should be two helicopters. In the first two days of the week-end problems with the helicopters was not, but on Saturday night we were informed that the helicopter could not stay on the track at night in connection with a potential risk of damage due to the approaching Typhoon. The helicopter flew to Nagoya.

Early Sunday morning we received news that he was unable to return due to bad weather conditions. In accordance with our rules, we held a meeting and decided to make a major medical center hospital mie Prefecture, which is located 15 km from the road. Under normal conditions this way can be done in 25 minutes. This decision was taken on Sunday before 10am.

Closer to 11.30 helicopter was able to get back on track. But it was the decision to hold the race, even if the helicopter is not. All this is fully in line with our policies.

Such cases have already been earlier, for example, in 2009 and 2010 When the accident happened with Bianca, it was found that the helicopter can fly up from the road, but to land near the hospital does not allow the weather conditions. Therefore, we used the original plan, which was adopted early in the morning, and the driver was taken to medical center by ambulance. In those specific circumstances, it took 32 minutes.

Question I'd Like to hear your expert opinion did this delay on the state of Jules Bianchi

Ian Roberts the Total time spent on transportation racer, was 37 minutes, during this period was carried out detailed monitoring of his condition, and he was taken to hospital in absolutely the same physiological condition as it was at the time of shipment from the highway.

Question When FIA was last discussed the revision of safety standards, and how often you return to this theme

Charlie whiting I don't remember when the last time it was discussed protective skirts for tractors, but it was a long time ago. Subject head protection rider, the use of closed cockpits has recently been discussed and this discussion continues. As you know, it was after the incident with Felipe Massa and Henry Certicom. We spent quite in-depth study of this topic, a lot of experimenting, and the study is not completed.

It is very difficult to find a solution that would provide sufficient strength, but at the same time not interfere with the driver to work in the cockpit that the presence of such a system is not reflected. It is not easy. Meeting on security issues will be held next Thursday, and the solver will continue.

Question it was Not possible to postpone the start of the race at an earlier time, primarily to ensure that it is finished when it was still relatively light

Charlie whiting From my point of view, it would be useful. The organizers of the race was able to move it to an earlier time, but I don't think we are faced with a situation more complex than it could be. I do not think that the visibility was in serious trouble. I have already said that the race was conducted in strict accordance with the schedule, which we usually adhere to. This does not affect security. If it is too wet, we would simply not have it to spend.

Q You presented to the President of the FIA preliminary or final report, and whether it is in the public domain

Charlie whiting I would say that this version is close to the final. Need to add some information, but we are not yet fully decided who will be available this document. When reporting, we wanted to gather as much information, and must first submit it to the Commission on security, and it will select the group of experts who will examine all the issues raised. But I can't yet say who will have access to this report.

Question Tomorrow you will be meeting with teams on security issues. Is there any chance that in this weekend will be introduced some adjustments in the mode yellow flags and speed limits

Charlie Whiting It Is Unlikely. I have no doubt that we will be able to negotiate, but the machine consists of a huge number of different systems, it is very difficult to quickly achieve operability of such decision. Moreover, it is extremely important that the new system worked exactly the same on all machines. I think we should not rush to implement any changes as early as this weekend.

Question You talked about testing some solutions aimed at protecting the head of the racer. You know the results of these experiments. If to speak about the incident at Suzuka how you think, whether in the foreseeable future to appear a solution that can withstand such a blow

Charlie whiting I Think a clear answer to this question to give yet. But as I said, we had a solution to protect the rider from impact without wheels. There are preliminary signs that the forces acting on the car when hitting the fence route, or as was the case with the machine Jules, much larger than those with which we dealt in the course of the tests. We try to accurately estimate the impact energy, but I suspect that in this case, under these particular circumstances, it would be extremely difficult to find a solution that would protect the head of the racer.

Question Given the consequences of the accident, you are not going to make any special crash tests, which simulated the collision of the machine with an obstacle, like the tow truck

Charlie whiting This depends on the results of the analysis of injuries machine Jules, I do not exclude that it is necessary to consider the possibility of giving additional strength to the existing security structures. Again, I think it would be inappropriate to attempt to consider the circumstances of this particular accident. We try, whenever possible, to take into account the experience of all incidents, for example, a few years ago in Suzuka accident in which Timo Glock has hurt her leg, and then we had to deal with injuries of the chassis, which did not work. On the experience of similar accidents we learn. So shall it be in this case.

Question Charlie, could you tell me when will the changes made to the rules governing the appearance on the track tractors This will happen at the beginning of the next season

Charlie whiting Actually, if we are talking about such changes, at the beginning of next season, Yes.

Question According to Adrian Sutil, he was not asked about what happened, about what he saw from his point. You spoke with him

Charlie whiting No, not yet.

Question But will it

Charlie whiting Yes, we definitely will discuss what he saw. But I guess he had little to add, because we have the video of the evacuation of the entire incident. He was there, saw that, probably, would not like to see. No, we haven't discussed yet. Perhaps, while it is not the best time.

Question Charlie, I would also like to know how fast you received information about the incident

Charlie whiting With a little delay. Because the car hadn't been seen. My first thought when we looked at the screen with a tractor, was "the Evacuation took longer than I expected." It didn't look normal, it is usually the marshals in Suzuka work very quickly. Then they said "the Car crashed into a tractor." This is what they gave with the post, but I haven't seen her for a tractor. It took us some time to consider another camera that there really is a machine.

But it was impossible to understand wounded anyone, and the condition of the pilot. When we know, we sent the track the safety car and medical car. You couldn't see, it was not shown live, and on the camera, the image with which we looked, this was nowhere to be seen. With the camera 11 we could not be seen, and the camera 12 has been rotated in the wrong direction. As soon as we launched, we could see the car. But it took some time. Probably not more than 20 seconds, but for some time we remained in ignorance.

Question Jean, you talked about the expert Council, which will review the circumstances of the accident, which will include Charlie. Who else will it contain You said that to attract the best experts.

Jean Todt I know that you are familiar with the organization of the FIA. Of course, you know that security Commission headed by Peter Wright we have medical Commission there is Charlie in the technical Committee and several high-ranking people. That's why I asked Peter Wright to gather expert advice from qualified professionals. Everyone knows Peter and his strengths, I expect that he will help in this question.

Question How long will it take expert advice in order to come to conclusions. Do you have a deadline to which you are waiting for them

Jean Todt the Chairman of the expert Council Peter Wright today received my request, after this morning I received a report Charlie. I have to meet with Wright on Wednesday in Geneva. There will be a meeting, which is always done after serious accidents.

Question How to work a helmet and HANS Did you manage to get some information after this incident

Charlie whiting it is still too early to draw any conclusions. You can look at the helmet and to assess the damage.

We have several experts, in particular Andy Mellor. This is a very detailed and brilliant engineer. He was responsible for the design of the helmet, the so-called specifications 8860 - it is now used for the racers. The investigation began after the death of Ayrton Senna, and his creation took a long time.

Now we must be very careful to analyze. Andy is well able to restore the circumstances of Avaria, we will provide all data and photos. Then we need to understand how received damage and what needs to be done to prevent such things.

To put it all together is quite a complex process. But it will be done, and all that we can learn will be useful in improving the design of the helmet. The processes are the same as in the days when we worked with Mizoram after the accident Felipe Mass in Hungary in 2009 the result is a Kevlar band, which is now all use.

Question is there Enough of the expert or you do not have any specialists

Charlie whiting No, at the moment I don't think so.

Question Charlie, you have the opportunity to tell drivers that they are traveling at too high a temp

Charlie whiting No, it goes through the team. We cannot communicate directly with racers, but we often ask the team to send a message to the driver. And then can verify that they did.

Question Given that not all riders slowed double yellow flags, how strong was the impact

Charlie whiting If you look at the first data on the speed of the car. There was a barrier of three layers of tires, the accident would have been comparable with the incident of Heikki Kovalainen in Barcelona in 2007 But this is a very approximate information, I can't say for sure. But given that the barrier of the three layers of the tires and it was already the machine, at such a speed that the accident was of the same order.

Question Charlie, do not feel that their role could be played by coating the security zone If there was asphalt, it would be stronger to slow down

Charlie whiting This is the fact that on all routes, we played asphalt security zone in any condition better the gravel traps. That is why all new routes are mainly used asphalt security zone.

On older tracks don't, but this does not mean that they are unsafe, we performed tests on all routes, not just the new. But it is a fact that in most cases the asphalt better. However, in this particular case, we cannot say that everything would be different if there was asphalt, because we don't know for sure. But in most cases the asphalt better.

Question According to the received information can you talk about any mechanical problems with the car before the incident, which could cause a crash

Charlie whiting At the moment there are no signs of any mechanical problems.

Question Jean, how was this week for you personally emotionally

Jean Todt I am familiar with Jules since then, when he was 15 years old. While racing, I sometimes talked with his great-grandfather Lucien Bianchi. In addition, I remember that together with Mauro Bianchi went to the French hospital, specializing in burns, because he got a very serious injury. It so happened that he is familiar with my son. Nicolas works with Jules from 15 years of age and strongly believe in it.

Of course, on the one hand, my priority is to lead the FIA, which has two main areas of work - road and sport. But like any human, I have emotions, and I had a hard time. But I must say that every accident is deeply touches me. I had to leave Japan, but I five times per day to check how the situation is developing. That is why now our main responsibility is to analyze what happened and make sure that this will not happen again. But, as I said, racing is dangerous and can not absolutely guarantee that accidents won't happen. However, we will never be satisfied, for we will always be important to achieve greater security.

Timo Glock I don't want to Formula-1

The ex-pilot of Formula 1, now he is performing in the DTM for the team BMW, Timo Glock has admitted that he does not want ago at the Royal race."I satisfied with his work in the DTM, where the championship healthier than in Formula 1, " said Glock. - In Formula 1, only four stables able to pay their pilots to the salary, the rest should look for money. This is not the rainbow present for the championship and not very bright perspective for his future. So I do not even think about returning IN the Formula-1 Glock advocated Jordan, Toyota and Virgin-Marussia.

Mailander this year I saw a lot of interesting races

Mailander this year I saw a lot of interesting races

Bernd Maylander - virtually unchallenged driver car security FIA, it works in the Formula 1 is already fifteen years. In an interview with nonf1.ru Bernd has shared his opinion about the changes that happen in the world championship in 2014.

Question Do you have a unique opportunity for many years to observe the development of Formula 1, constantly being in the heart of the action what can you say about the season 2014, because many have criticized the new technical regulations Whether this criticism is fair

Bernd Maylander of Course, I'm not going to criticize the modern Formula 1. If to compare the new power plant with the engines that were used earlier this year made a huge step forward. And when I flew to Australia for the first race of the season, I expected to see these changes, and I saw them both in terms of aerodynamics, and aspects related to safety, because the nose cones are much lower. Of course, the sound has changed too.

Now I can say - it was very important changes, which allowed to create a Formula 1 car of new generation. In my opinion, everything is very cool

Question Indeed, the impression is that the Grand Prix going better and more interesting.

Bernd Maylander Absolutely I am absolutely sure the development of Formula 1 is in the right direction, and now this championship has become the absolute leader in the field of modern racing technology. As it should be. I am pleased that this year saw a lot of very interesting race. Yes, in the championship dominates Mercedes, but the tense struggle goes all over the peloton, let's say, for positions, starting with the third. That's what it takes Motorsport.

In previous years was dominated by Red Bull Racing, until this one year - Brawn GP, which then became the Mercedes AMG, before season two consecutive victory in the championship got Renault, and before that was won by Ferrari. Formula 1 is constantly changing, but what we saw this year is a step in the right direction.

Question You certainly know the opinion of the President of Ferrari Luca di Montezemolo - or its not like the Formula 1 of the new generation because his team does not win

Bernd Maylander you Know, not for me to criticize other brands, but changes occur in any sport, for example, in football will be a new champion of the world - who will win, Germany or Argentina, look, but change is clearly needed. When they occur, it is good for any sport.

Question on the one hand, you are FIA, on the other cooperating to Mercedes, and perhaps you have some opinion about what is happening in this team now, because after the victory Lewis Hamilton at Silverstone advantage Nico Rosberg was reduced to 4 points

Bernd Maylander to be honest, during race weekends I work on the FIA, because I am the driver of the car security, and have nothing to Mercedes AMG. I collaborate with our factory team serving DTM - at the stages of the championship roll guests on the track on the DTM-taxi. So what I'm happy when on Sundays we find truly interesting race. The main thing that won the best and fastest racer, and to avoid accidents. And for me not so important who will get the victory, the pilot Mercedes or someone else. It is important that in sporting terms it was all good, because I love race.

If you win Mercedes - so, they are great But if victory is Ferrari, Red Bull - I'm not upset, because the most important is the very Formula 1.

Question And yet, deep down, who do you support more Nico or Lewis Or are you trying to remain neutral

Bernd Maylander I know Lewis, since those times, when it only took in a McLaren. Niko I know even longer, because in the DTM at the time I competed with drivers who competed in the team, which belonged to his father. Can't say that I support one or the other. Ready to repeat once again I just want to see a great show.

Of course, if the title win Niko, it will be good for the German team. But if Lewis won his second championship is too great. 'll see. Still, we have not even got to the second half of the season.

Question next year there will be changes in the regulations related to vehicle safety, because now restarts will be given. How do you feel about those changes

Bernd Maylander For me, nothing will change. See if such a rule is introduced, but I think this will improve the entertainment races. In any case, I make no decisions. But the procedure governing the appearance on the track car security, will remain until restart.

Question Can you say that Russian driver Vitaly Petrov this year was your colleague, as he is in the DTM with Mercedes. And some drivers engaged in this championship, for example, Timo Glock, immediately warned that he would have hard. Why is it so difficult to ex-racers of Formula 1 success in the DTM

Bernd Maylander I've never been driving a Formula 1, so it's hard for me to judge what's the difference, but, for example, technical regulations in the DTM so that machines from different teams are very close in their high-speed capabilities. Therefore, the fight here is more dense than in Formula 1, and young riders quite difficult to learn to use 100 of the capacity of the machine. The matter is that unlike F1, in the DTM at the starting field visits 21 machine, and each has the potential to win the race.

In addition, the machine DTM harder, and in the qualification of the holder of the pole from the driver showed last result, just one second. To overtake in the DTM is also more difficult than in F1, where virtually no contact fight. In the DTM between machines possible contacts, whereas in Formula 1 after you do this often you are out of the race.

Of course, all this is not easy, and Vitaly this year should learn and gain more experience to the next season to go on the attack. That is what he is doing now and progressing quite rapidly.

Vitaly Petrov DTM bigger fight

Vitaly Petrov DTM bigger fight

In anticipation of the Russian round of the DTM, which will be held in Moscow Raceway in the nearest weekend, driver Mercedes AMG Vitaly Petrov in an exclusive interview nonf1.ru talked about the difficulties of adapting to this series.

Question Ahead of your first home DTM race, because you participated only in demonstration run. What are your expectations from the upcoming stage

Vitaly Petrov speaking of fans, I think, will be the excitement, a lot of the audience, and I will be hard to concentrate on the race. But you need to prioritize. Even my engineers understand that I have downloaded weekend, but the main thing is that we were not forgotten why he came here for.

If to speak about the race, I do this road not traveled in combat mode. We need at least 10 laps, to see what and how, and to understand. When I talk with other pilots who have already acted on this route, they say that the road adherence was much better, and it is for Mercedes very important. However, I think that that is not the route that suits us there are a lot of such curves, where we have problems. I want to warn everyone that not much is expected.

There's always a hope that something will happen, and there will be changes for the better, but it is unlikely.

Question But do you have a plan of action The track is narrow and overtake on it hard.

Vitaly Petrov Yes, but it used a short configuration, where he was a short, straight. Now the ring is longer, although also, probably, it will be difficult to overtake. However, I think this year it will be easier. So what's the plan we have is always the same to get ahead as much as possible of the guys from our team of Mercedes. They are all not for one year, they went and following this road, and on all others. If I get it, it will be possible to say that we did it.

Question On the previous stage was evident that cars Mercedes added, but your team reason behind what are the causes

Vitaly Petrov This is not the case. I think Norisring is the only stage at which Mercedes always looked strong, but we absolutely did nothing with the machine. Our team won, because the machine always looked good on the brakes, and on the road do not need a special downforce, there are some braking, cornering, acceleration and again braking.

Question they Say that the machine control DTM differs not only from piloting of formulas, but even other machines body series. What is the difficulty

Vitaly Petrov first, it is the weight of the machine. The construction itself is different, not the same as in the touring. The car is very sensitive, and when run, any movement of the steering wheel or something, affects the propagation time of a circle. You can either win, or lose a lot.

In Formula 1 is different, there you have the right to some small unnecessary movement, everything is clear, and we need another definition of piloting. In the DTM very light to the rear, and it is not possible to quickly attack in turns. We tried to find the correct settings, but I can't get rid of excess turnability - it is always there. Therefore, the need for high precision flying, and the racer must feel this face. However, it is not quite oversteer you enter in turn, waiting machine like "sit down", and then rule. I don't know how to explain it, it's very difficult.

I'm on many race cars went, but this is not seen anywhere else, so initially was surprised.

Question How would you evaluate your level of adaptation to these machines There is where to add

Vitaly Petrov of Course, and we must continue to work with options, because the car is very sensitive to such changes. You little change something, and behavior of the machine becomes very different. If you change two some settings, then get ready for the fact that everything will be either very good or very bad. Such a situation has already happened in the qualification we changed three things and thought in theory did everything correctly, but the car was being unpredictable.

While the qualifications I do not have a little of that feeling machine, so I can precisely tell engineers here need to be changed a little, and then everything will be as it should. In races easier you go and just work on your clarity of piloting, often passing circles faster companions. But in the qualifications do not yet have enough experience.

Question Many racers of Formula 1, having passed in the DTM has not achieved much success. What is the reason

Vitaly Petrov I don't know, probably not enough forward. I Timo Glock spoke with Gary Paffett, and both spoke "You will be hard, get ready". I never understood why it hard, but now I do. It is difficult to understand how to properly configure the machine as it is properly managed, how to get the missing fraction of a second, because in the DTM very high density results.

Question Maybe too early to ask this question, but still like this series, you would like to continue to act DTM

Vitaly Petrov pause .Probably don't like when something is misunderstood. In Formula 1, in principle, everything is clear with the controls and settings, you can change a lot, and I understand, in what direction to move. DTM is also interesting championship, there is a lot of struggle, conflict, contacts between machines, but of course, everyone is trying careful to go, because if you are someone will hook, be ready, that you too podvinut. But the density of the struggle, the voltage level - in the DTM, in my opinion, it is above.

Most of all I like that there are many experienced pilots of Formula 1, all the professionals of high level, and all deserve respect.

Question let's Talk about Formula 1 command Caterham changed owner. You played in this band, you know the situation from the inside why do you think that Tony Fernandes has abandoned his project

Vitaly Petrov Racers or even on your team's hard to judge what people like Fernandes, buy commands, such Caterham. He really loves the sport, but then, maybe he wanted to earn money or to expand its contacts - I don't know. Perhaps he hoped to attract many sponsors - can't say.

Question You mentioned Formula 1 the feeling that you still desire to return to the paddock

Vitaly Petrov In principle, why not I have everything in order with contacts, I know the conditions, so that at any time you can return to this topic, you can just find the budget, by the way, not so big. If you really want it, all things are possible.

Question speaking about the situation in the championship who bet on Nico Rosberg or Lewis Hamilton

Vitaly Petrov Lewis. They are both strong riders, but knowing Lewis in his speeches, the style of piloting, I think that for pure speed, it is ahead of teammate.

Question In recent years, Russia has seen many changes related to motorsports, appeared tracks are the stages of international Championships, soon will be the first Grand Prix. Obviously, this is your merit. How do you evaluate its role in the popularization of Motorsport

Vitaly Petrov I think that is still not enough is being done. You can work more efficiently. If we agree with Mercedes, may be, in Russia there are classes for beginner riders. In fact, I'm not many do, but ready to participate more actively - why not There are a lot of free time that I could devote to the work with children, youth. Would you have the budget, I would himself take a few talented young guys, maybe event, maybe from other categories, and would open its development program. I this way was passed, you know the situation from the inside, and if I am to talk about this young riders, they will be easier to achieve results.

Question What would you like to say to the fans on the eve of the Russian stage DTM

Vitaly Petrov don't expect anything fancy. Importantly, come on race, but do not expect me some striking results. Time is needed for this.

DTM the Race was won by Wittmann, Petrov again 17th

DTM the Race was won by Wittmann, Petrov again 17th

The DTM race at Silverstone has confidently won Marco Wittmann BMWthat started from the pole position. He and Miguel Molina Auditook 2-nd place, the first half of distance traveled on the option tyres was able to leverage the advantages of speed, which she provided to correctly build tactics, and were inaccessible to the rest of the peloton.

The struggle to narrow the Hungarian road went very badly, and not all drivers have managed to overcome even the first round the machine Gary Paffet received a blow from one of the opponents, the rear wing was broken, and Britain was forced to return to the boxes.

During the first phase of the race Marko Wittmann tried to chase the other pilot BMW, Timo Glock, although it was unable to exert significant pressure. But Goku failed to keep pace leader, he gradually fell behind, when he caught up with Miguel Molina Audi, which had to recoup after a bad start. On the 18-th circle, just before the pit stop, the Spaniard won the duel in the former F1 driver, and after a visit to the boxes he returned to the track before Timo.

At this point, the advantage of the first three was such that even after a pit stop all three crew kept their positions. But this situation did not last long Glock caught up with Edoardo Mortara, a representative of Audi, and soon was able to outstrip it, although between machines happened contact. However, the Germans did not lag behind, hoping in the future to win. He made several attacks, which is also accompanied by a power struggle, however, to return the third position Timo failed.

Vitaly Petrov, who started with next to last, the 22nd position, trying to control the more experienced competitors, but success he was not achieved, although some circles he passed pretty quickly. After a mandatory pit stop Russian rider rode 19th, and Christian Vitores, his partner on Mercedes and the winner of the previous stage DTM in Marienburg, to catch up with him could not. However, for a few laps before the finish of Vitores retired because of problems with the machine. In the end, Vitaly took 17 th place, and he managed to get ahead of another former pilot of Formula 1, Paul di Resta. And the best representative of Mercedes was Robert Wickens, finishing 11th, which confirmed the problem Stuttgart team machines which is clearly not enough speed compared with BMW and Audi.

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.

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.

The pilots of Formula 1 are renowned for their art of racing cars and physical training, but as they have with memory Official site of the championship decided to find out, and this year it publishes a series of interviews with drivers who will help to know them better. Today on the queue Kamui Kobayashi.

Question Who was your first idol when you were a child

Kamui Kobayashi None I had no idols when I was a child.

Timo Glock this year's Champions will be a Mercedes

Timo Glock this year's Champions will be a Mercedes

In an interview with the German website of T-Online's former F1 driver Timo Glock has summed up the results of tests and told about their expectations from the new season. According to the DTM pilot, changes in regulations happened not at the most suitable time and turned not only new costs related to new power plants, but also problems for many teams.

Question Changes in the regulations, the new motor - all starts with zero. Obviously, this did not bring good luck Red Bull Racing and Sebastian Vettel they faced numerous problems on the tests. There is a risk that they will fail the beginning of the season

Timo Glock First of all, we must wait. It's not the best way, and until the beginning of the season there will be no more tests, where they could resolve the problem. However, Red Bull Racing is an experienced team, knowing exactly what it is necessary to work.

Question last year, Sebastian Vettel dominated, and now was far behind.

Timo Glock Vettel need to remain calm, because panic, nothing will. Furthermore, he has to think it over.

Test-all commands are faced with problems. There is hardly a driver who would be the calm before the start of the season, even if your first experience with the new machine was good. There is a lot to Grand Prix, and can happen anywhere.

Question the Main problems of Red Bull Racing associated with Renault.

Timo Glock Yes. Hybrid engine and new electronics is a rather complex system. Obviously, Renault problems with the configuration of all components and their interaction. In winter, Mercedes, and Ferrari better job.

Question the Situation is aggravated by the fact that Adrian Newey suggested a very aggressive approach to the development of the new machine, but this team is constantly pursued problems with the cooling system.

Timo Glock Projects Newey always on the brink. He already had a machine that could not finish the race. Still, however, in most cases, he acted properly, so much he created machines became the champion. Perhaps the problem with overheating surprised him. In essence, engineers know beforehand how much cooling you want the system. It is quite possible that Red Bull Racing made a mistake when working on the simulator.

Question What can you do to Red Bull Racing for the remainder of the season time

Timo Glock In fact, not so much. They gathered some information and must be examined in order to understand the situation.

Question In General, this is not the best situation for Red Bull Racing. Whether Sebastian Vettel to keep the title this year

Timo Glock actually, despite the problems, the Red Bull Racing is always among the favourites. Not by chance, she won four titles in a row, and the opponents also admit this. However, Vettel will not be easy. I think that this year's Champions will be a Mercedes.

Question What are the chances Nico Rosberg win the title Can he become the world champion

Timo Glock Yes. After winning three races, Nico Rosberg has shown that they can win. Its role will play a new turbo engine and a new restriction on the quantity of fuel to 100 kg on the distance of the race. Niko well all calculates, while his mate Lewis Hamilton uses a more aggressive driving style.

Question You mentioned the new engines. The so-called power plant is one of the novelties of this season. Is it possible to draw any conclusions on the results of the pre-season tests

Timo Glock Clearly the following most commands do not know what position, what results have been achieved rivals, because each focused on their own problems. This test is primarily important to ensure the stable operation of the machine. The main thing is to reach the finish. This is the motto of the first race of the season. A small team got a chance to succeed, because it is obvious that the incidents cannot be avoided.

Question let's briefly talk about numerous innovations. The machine became more difficult changed the sound of the engine. How do you think the Formula 1 has chosen the right path

Timo Glock the New motor, of course, not benefited the Formula 1. All power installation is very vulnerable, so it would be better to leave it as is. The project costs and the tests were too high, but the automakers whatever it wanted to acquire new technology. Now we need to extract the maximum benefit from this situation.

Question New machines are slower than their predecessors.

Timo Glock I see no problems with this. The audience is not that exciting, chaise machine for 2 seconds slower or faster. In the end, the race and the show is the main thing. Everything else is secondary.

Question What number you have selected this year

Kamui Kobayashi I chose the number ten - I made his debut in Formula 1 driving the car with this number, replacing Timo Glock's Toyota. Then I participated in a two Grand Prix, but still decided to play under number ten. This number has brought me luck.

Question In 2012, when we were with the track, you criticized the circuit in Singapore. Formula 1 has become the most politically correct, but there are people who are not afraid to Express your opinion.

Kamui Kobayashi I always try to be myself and maximum hard, so that fans interested. I understand that many will consider certain things insane, but I think this is a great plus. I'm not here for the reckless actions - I work with the team and try to give everything to achieve good results. I have much to do outside the track, and the new season will be more complicated than the previous.

Question You and Fernando Alonso, are able to bring the car to the garage, even if she had three wheels and half of the front wing. Maybe this year you have to do it quite often.

Kamui Kobayashi I don't think so. Of course, the new machine is much more difficult now refused if one sensor, it is difficult to continue the struggle. If we talk about Caterham, for our team, much has changed, but we still strive to fight against stronger opponents. We are here for the sake of it, but the results are largely dependent upon the effectiveness of the machine. It is necessary that racers were laid more driving and fought with his rivals - this is exactly what the fans. I hope I will succeed.

Question Kamui Kobayashi and Caterham - interesting Union. Do you know where is the eponymous town

Kamui Kobayashi I would not say that the base of the team is a real city. Last time I was there two or three weeks ago worked on the simulator. Several days of heavy rain, and on the way in Lipid I was in for a real flood. I'm afraid that can't get to.

Question You talk about the team Caterham, I'm talking about a town in Surrey, for whom it is named command. Have you ever been there There Caterham build a machine in 1967.

Kamui Kobayashi These machines are great for Japan. Locals love cars, but mostly classic. Caterham is not like a classic car ,but great Japanese mentality.

Question Tell me about last season. How long have you been on the track Did you like the experience of performances in races of endurance behind the wheel of a Ferrari

Kamui Kobayashi I enjoyed it. This championship seriously differs from the Formula 1, but I'm glad to share the machine with a partner. Tony Wilander is a great guy. I never used to be with him not worked, but perfectly spent time.

In races of endurance completely different machine, but I would have liked for them to chase. I think we have achieved some good results.

Question you had The opportunity to reveal their potential in the pre-season tests, or you are focusing only on the machine

Kamui Kobayashi we have a lot Of work. The latter tests in Bahrain were not as successful as the first, but we've made progress. We need time, but I think we can handle it.

Question how do you feel vpervye driving on the highway driving Caterham

Kamui Kobayashi I thought «it's Great to be back in the race» I was comfortable behind the wheel. But from the machine I expected completely different.

Question has It changed for better or worse

Kamui Kobayashi No, I am saying that this is a whole new challenge. Not to say that the car has become better or worse, because we are only at the beginning and at this stage it is difficult to pilot any car. As soon as I adapt, feelings change. That's what tests. Well, that direct machine faster than last year, but you have to work on increase of the pressing forces, in order to achieve a better grip in cornering.

Question you Have a problem with slip

Kamui Kobayashi Yes.

Question do You like it

Kamui Kobayashi This is a very complex aspect of piloting. You need to explain engineers, why it happened, how did this situation and what you feel. For me it is new, so it's difficult to comment on the behavior of the machine. Work with engineers also has changed, this has to learn.

You can't just say we need to improve the efficiency of the machine on acceleration - you should explain what you mean, and that's not easy when you have so much new systems.

Question What do you think about the life in Monte Carlo

The Evolution Of The Ferrari F2008, 2008

The Evolution Of The Ferrari F2008, 2008

26/02/2014

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 2008 the rules have not changed almost. Increased height of the protective side of the pilot, transmission needed to keep a distance of four Grand Prix, under got some exotic materials. All this has led to some increase in the mass of cars, but in General, engineers could use last year's achievements. New Ferrari F2008 became a logical continuation of vehicles of the previous season.

Changed the shape of the , side pontoons and the engine casing, which required revision design of the front and rear suspension. To adapt the machine for changes in regulations, the wheelbase has been reduced, developed a new gearbox. Braking system obtained new calipers and innovative cooling system.

Another change was the emergence of all the machines Formula 1 standard electronic control units ECU. Traction control, control of starting and other electronic helpers» riders are under the ban.

After the end of the 2007 season, Jean Todt left the post of the head of the , focusing on the leadership of the company. His place was taken by Stefano . Taking into account that earlier the team is left, Ross brown and Rory Byrne, the kind of structure that, together with Schumacher, brought Ferrari numerous titles in the beginning of the decade, was completely renovated.

Ferrari F2008

After the revolution last year, in 2008 in Maranello have taken a small step back while working on the F2008. Structurally, the new machine, in General, reminiscent of the F2007, although the distance between the axes was slightly reduced to pilots feel more comfortable on slow tracks.

The most distinctive element of the whole project, at least in terms of aerodynamics, became the bow section. The upper surface of the wing was attached to a nasal that together with a complex configuration the basic plane contributed to a better organization of air flows in the front part, increase the amount of air entering the machine and, as a consequence, the clamping force.

Not satisfied with the excellent results shown in the tunnel and in the first races of the season in Spain Scuderia introduced a new nose cone with a «hole», and in Hungary on the air vent of the engine had a large fin-style Red Bull.

About the engine, on the contrary, you can tell not so much. Freezing the development of engines, imposed by the FIA, has shifted the attention of designers to electronic system of ECU Electronic Control Unit, which produced the McLaren Electronic Systems. ECU has not established a Ferrari big problems, but errors on the command bridge in Singapore and not rock-solid reliability at the Hungaroring prevented Felipe Mass win the title. The team for the second year in a row, won the Cup of designers.

The results of performances of the Ferrari F2008 in Formula 1 races

Pilots in Ferrari remained the same, but the «leader» changed now the title claimed Felipe Massa, while Kimi Raikkonen, winning two races of the first four, in the future a single win win failed. Often the reason for this is the loss of motivation by Finn, but do not forget that in this season, Raikkonen in 18 races 10 times showed the best lap time in the race. The main problems Kimi arose in the qualification if the Mass started from pole position six times, Raikkonen - only twice. One of these races he won another missed mate due to technical problems.

The main competitor Ferrari again became the team McLaren, where now completely dominated by Lewis Hamilton - his partner instead of Fernando Alonso became Heikki Kovalainen. In addition, strong were the pilots of the BMW Sauber's Robert Kubica and Nick Heidfeld. During the championship, the two unexpected victories won and lost in the Alonso Renault - however, as it turned out later, one of them was a result of intentional gathering his running mate Nelson Piquet Jr. Another surprise was a very convincing victory at Monza young Sebastian Vettel at Toro Rosso.

In General, the performance of all the contenders for the title of stability differ. For the final Grand Prix, held in Brazil, Hamilton and Massa came up with five victories in the asset, but Lewis was seven points ahead. To be a champion, Felipe was supposed to win, and hope that Lewis finished not higher than sixth. With his part of this task Brazilian coped, confidently won the first race, despite changeable weather conditions. By the time it crossed the finish line, Hamilton was the sixth, but at the last turn Briton ahead of Timo Glock, speaking for Toyota, and became the world champion.

Timo Glock "My predictions are often not come true"

Timo Glock

Timo Glock, even last year, speaking in Formula 1, now the masters a new case now he DTM racer, he has a long-term contract with BMW, and it's quite a new page in his biography. In qualifications at the Moscow Raceway Timo not lucky at the decisive moment prevented him traffic. In an exclusive interview nonf1.ru he told about experience of performances in the new League, but not forgotten and about F1.

Question In the qualification you showed only 17 result the problem in a racer, in the car, or you do not like the road

Timo Glock No, the track is good, but I'm just not lucky. At the second set of tyres we planned to leave at the end of the session, but this time another car just went out with weights after a technical inspection, I had to wait for the pit lane extra 15 seconds, and eventually I was on the road at the wrong time behind the group of 4 - 5 cars. In the end, at the second set of rubber I could not normally go fast, although all the others improved their results.

Of course, I was upset because I felt that we could go faster, and now have to think about how to rectify the situation during the race. Although the machine was not of the best handling.

Question six months you probably already able to adapt to the DTM how the atmosphere of this championship differs from the Formula 1

Timo Glock is all good, although the series DTM quite similar to the Formula 1. Season consists only of 10 rounds, weekend a very short one training session, and then immediately qualification, and the next day - race. But this is an interesting new challenge, I like to solve it, the more that I once again driving a nice car and I can fight in the first rows. The last three years, Marussia F1 I lost the leaders of three-four seconds on the circle - it was such a machine. And now I lose only a couple of tenths, so the race are more fun. And I like it

Question And have you already once on the podium

Timo Glock Yes, it was great to be back on the podium, because in that race on the track Red Bull Ring we had a great speed. Now, simply try to repeat this result.

Question different riders in different years we have heard impressions about cars DTM standard, for example, from David or from Ralf Schumacher, and how would you define the key difference between the technique of the championship and the Formula 1

Timo Glock If we talk about the pilot, the main difference is that the machine DTM heavier, less powerful, and tires grip the track is not as good as rubber in F1. Everything is very different, and to have a good speed driving the car DTM, you have to re-conceptualise approaches to pilot and very significantly change his style.

I must continue working on it, but the difficulty is that every time we go to the next track, the car behavior changes, you have a different vibe from the office, and in just a half hour workout. And if there are any difficulties, and you get behind, it is difficult to recoup. This is the main problem.

Question Obviously, you keep track for Formula 1 and even on the website Motorsport-Total before races publish its forecast, however, the result guess rarely.

Timo Glock laughs that's for sure

Question it sounds Like you are a good driver, but not a very good predictor

Timo Glock it looks Like My forecasts are often not come true, but in General all again in favour of Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull. However, the championship continues, the events may develop in any scenario, we will see in what form will the team after the summer break. While, for example, it can be noted that Mercedes is more confident, but in the championship leader of the most stable racer. We'll see what happens.

Question are You aware of rumors from the world of Formula 1, which, as always, when the season is approaching transitions

Timo Glock No, I don't pay attention.

Question And the progress of your former team Marussia follow

Timo Glock the impression Is that it really has made progress and the beginning of the season, reduced the backlog of teams from the middle of the peloton, but it seems to me that now she starts to fall behind. It is a pity that in the middle of the season Marussia couldn't take another step forward, and now Pat Simonds goes, and it will affect the team.

Question Since you are in the DTM, the prospects for the development of Formula 1 is probably the concern you have less, but still you have some opinion about the transition of the world championship on new in 2014

Timo Glock I do not care a lot. I have no information about the new engines.

Question Then return to the DTM how do you assess the prospects in this series What can we expect from the second half of the season, from next year, maybe

Timo Glock We'll See. I have a long-term contract in a BMW, so I'm ready for next season and want in the future to achieve success. But first you need to better understand the features of the DTM and continue to learn. Therefore, my goal in 2014 to achieve better results.

Timo Glock I know where the finish pilots in the Red Bull in Hungary

The ex-pilot of Formula 1 Timo Glock sure know what positions finish pilots in the Red Bull in the upcoming race of the Grand Prix of Hungary."Forthcoming the race is final for the first half of the 2013 season, so many of the pilots and crews will want to spend it as efficiently as possible, so that in a good mood start your holiday, " said Glock. - But I know that on this route, only one team will look good design your car. It is about Red Bull. Hungaroring track has a large number of turns, many of which medium-speed or slow. In such places is important, not the maximum speed on the straights, and performance acceleration at the outlet from the apex, and machine RB9 here . think Vettel easily wins in qualifying and then in the race, and his mate mark Webber finish third".

Race 1986 could go in the USSR. Bernie Ecclestone was obsessed with the idea of the stage behind the iron curtain, considering as candidates Soviet Union, China and Yugoslavia. In the end, feeling the strength of a "curtain", Bernie stopped in Hungary. Boss championship visited Budapest with a brief visit, September 10, 1985, the contract was signed, three weeks after construction began, and already 10 August 1986 at the Hungaroring passed debut race in Formula 1.

The Hungarian road more often they complain, it was rebuilt several times, and in 2003 debuted a new version which also has made not all.

Overtaking on the Hungaroring very difficult, although enhanced security zones allow pilots to take risks without fear of serious consequences for machines. However, two independent zones DRS can facilitate the struggle for position.

Hungaroring is rarely used for races, usually at the beginning of the weekend grip poor - due to this, on Friday easy to make erroneous conclusions about the effectiveness of tyres, so the real work settings and planning race strategy is possible only during an hour of Saturday session of free-race.

Hungaroring - slow and technical track, making high demands to the physical conditions of drivers who are constantly in the areas of braking and cornering, without having the possibility to have a rest, except on the main straight. Braking is not too strong, but brake wear big due to the fact that they do not have time to cool down.

The Pirelli will bring in Hungary a new rubber, corresponding on the design of the buses of 2012, but the line-UPS of 2013. Instead of the previously announced Medium and Hard, a few weeks before the race have upgraded their choice - the team will have a more soft couple - Medium and Soft.

Timo Glock «the Hungarian route is interesting enough, but the characteristics of asphalt through the weekend serious change, while making life difficult racers. The first problem is the dust, autodrome is almost not used for competitions, and on Friday free practice coating is very slippery.

Then is covered with asphalt waste rubber and the situation returned to normal, but the next problem is the temperature. Hungary traditionally hot weather, asphalt is heated above 50 degrees that seriously affects the balance of the car.

Heat affects the pilots race in Hungary lasts almost two hours, which is really exhausting. Here not as bad as in Malaysia, where is added to heat high humidity, but leaving the car after the finish, you feel visited the sauna.

Out of the Hungarian weekend is always interesting. Budapest is a beautiful city with wonderful architecture, on the banks of the Danube many bars and restaurants, and shops here are very good»

Timo Glock puts on victory Vettel in Hungary

Timo Glock puts on victory Vettel in Hungary

On the eve of the Grand Prix of Germany ex-Formula 1 driver Timo Glock made a forecast on the results of the race on the Nurburgring. If Timo participated in a competition of forecasts F1News.ru then at the last stage would have earned 89 points, taking 2149 place.

Before the start of the race weekend in Hungary, the German racer has a new forecast, but this time he called only the top five.

Timo Glock «Soon pilots and Formula 1 team will leave for the summer, but before that they will have to sweat a little Held in the middle of the summer Grand Prix of Hungary can be compared to a marathon in the sauna. Close to the Aqua Park with giant slide and during the race I sometimes have the desire to leave it to cool. However, even if the weather is hot in Hungary are a great race.

Personally I like the Hungaroring and this is not surprising - this track is the first time I climbed the podium in Formula 1 in 2008. Some call Hungaroring the "highway of Mickey mouse", but I don't agree with them. Its length is almost 4,4 km away - there is no time for a break, because turns follow one another, and the real very short. The race is always stressful - it is a serious challenge for the rider and machine.

Taking into account the continuous change in direction, the Hungarian highway is required not so much high maximum speed, how much effective acceleration out of corners. It is in this strong side Red Bull RB9 Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber. Rivals will be difficult to guess, they will not be able to compete with Red Bull. I think that Sebastian will start from pole position and victory, and mark finish third.

In hot weather depends on the rubber and those who are able to carefully work with the tires will be an advantage. This is somewhat allow Lotus to achieve success. I think it will be and in Hungary. I think that Kimi Raikkonen finishes second, and his partner Roman Grozhan - fifth. Fernando Alonso will show the fourth result.

Me in the beginning of August for a new adventure in Russia for the first time will stage the DTM series. I don't know the track, but judging from the information that I have, she should come our car BMW M3 DTM. The good news is that, finally, I arrive at a new all the track, and we will be in equal conditions. It will be interesting».

Timo Glock believe in the success of Mercedes at the Nurburgring

Timo Glock believe in the success of Mercedes at the Nurburgring

On the eve of the British Grand Prix ex-Formula 1 driver Timo Glock has forecast the results of the race in Silverstone. If Timo participated in a competition of forecasts nonf1.ru then at the last stage would have earned 130 points, taking 710 place among all participants. Before the beginning of the weekend at the Nurburgring German racer has a new forecast.

Timo Glock «Grand Prix of Germany for my compatriots in Formula 1 is one of the brightest events of the season. For me, this day has always been particularly pleasant. Family and friends in such cases are able to be close, we can finally meet with the local fans, plunge in a familiar environment with a delicious meal and casual conversation along that much easier, even though in such weekends a little more normal.

Many fans think that we are familiar with such tracks as Nurburgring and the Hockenheimring, performances in the youth categories, and know them better than their foreign racing tracks. This is half true. Of course, Formula BMW and German Formula 3 more often pass on domestic routes, but also the lower categories of Motorsport seek international status. There you can meet with Spa and as fast as with or . In short, the performance of the building gives the rider advantage, but not too much.

Based on this, I want to make your predictions for the Grand Prix of Germany. I firmly believe in the further success of the Mercedes. I am sure that Lewis Hamilton will win, and Nico Rosberg will take second place. Although Niko now speaks very much, I think Lewis better adapt in a team and be able to add to speed. This can been seen already in Silverstone, until he's having problems. I very much hope that the tires more explode will not, as such things are really dangerous.

I think that Sebastian Vettel will be able to confirm its leadership in the world championship, having won the third place in the Eifel mountains. In the fourth place, I see Fernando Alonso, who often speaks at the Nurburgring very much, but it F138 can't seem now to claim victory. I think, as in Silverstone, Ferrari qualification will not look too great, but in the race will go much better. So I think that Fernando can win back a lot of positions.

So, here is my forecast the results of the race on the Nurburgring

1. Lewis Hamilton Mercedes

2. Nico Rosberg Mercedes

3. Sebastian Vettel Red Bull

4. Fernando Alonso Ferrari

5. Mark Webber Red Bull

6. Kimi Raikkonen Lotus

7. Felipe Massa Ferrari

8. Paul di Resta Force India

9. Adrian Force India

10. Jenson Button McLaren

Pole Lewis Hamilton Mercedes

Fastest lap Lewis Hamilton Mercedes

The largest number of the performed positions Fernando Alonso Ferrari

I wish all the fans who come to watch the Formula 1 race on the Nurburgring, enjoy, and it is very important that the weather was good. I hope we meet typical for this area the rain, after all the teams have to work with a new set of tires. To learn necessarily need good weather conditions during all workouts. I myself am also very soon I will sit behind the wheel».

Glock predicts dominance Vettel at Silverstone

Glock predicts dominance Vettel at Silverstone

On the eve of the Grand Prix of Canada, former Formula 1 driver Timo Glock has forecast the results of the race in Montreal. If Timo participated in a competition of forecasts nonf1.ru then at the last stage, he would have earned 114 points for finishing in 1906 place among all participants. Before the start of the British stage of the German racer has a new forecast.

Timo Glock «Pause between the races ended, every day is felt all the tension. The main issue is which team is better used the time after the Grand Prix of Canada, having achieved the greatest progress I believe that all the teams made a similar step forward, preparing novelties. I don't think we'll see any drastic changes in alignment of forces.

Legendary Silverstone - another track, where great importance is aerodynamics. A new sector has not changed anything in this regard. The victory can expect the team which is all right with downforce. In this aspect, the Red Bull - benchmark for many, so I put on their victory. I am convinced that Sebastian Vettel will conquer the pole and Sunday will fourth victory and increase the gap in personal offset.

Interestingly, as will hold a weekend of his team mate mark Webber. For the last three years he has won twice at Silverstone. Australian like the track, but the current machine he doesn't quite fit. Sebastian this year there is an advantage, let's see whether the situation will change in the next races. Perhaps, signing a contract with Porsche, mark will act in a more relaxed look. However, I do not think that at Silverstone he finishes higher than the fifth place.

Suppose, Mercedes will hold a strong weekend in England. The team clearly, progress has been made in the rubber, and the speed they had before. In the beginning of the season Nico Rosberg was faster than Lewis Hamilton, but I think at home for Lewis highway situation will change. I guess he finishes second, Fernando Alonso third, and Nico Rosberg fourth. Outside the top five of the struggle, as usual, will go between Lotus, Ferrari Force India and McLaren.

So, my forecast for the British Grand Prix Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso, Nico Rosberg, mark Webber, Kimi Raikkonen, Felipe Massa, Paul di Resta, Jenson button, Adrian Sutil. Pole Sebastian Vettel wins, he will show the fastest lap in the race. Most places on the grid will Sergio Perez».

If to speak about what will happen outside the track, we'll face tense, but interesting time - I often have to communicate with journalists.
