Arrow F1: Azerbaijan GP '21

its always nice to watch races here.. thanks to its long straights.. actually quite a fun street track..

everyone will be seeking for how much Red Bull wings will flex/bend for sure on the straights..
i guess it wont.. they ll fix that on their own..

2019 highlights..



and the program for the weekend..

Indeed - this street race has seen significant drama.....Red Bull taking each-other out....VET intentionally crashing into HAM....and BOT cutting a tire while leading.

I love this race, one of my favorite on the calendar. Also my second favorite to drive on F1 2020 besides Austria!

It's a track that always seems to produce great races.

Flexi wings will definitely give you an advantage down the 2.2km pit straight - expect some protests and fallout................

The Mercedes "Flexi front wing" will definitely give you an advantage as well...

Probably the FIA forgot that the Merc is the fastest car of the last 7 years ...

Duh, ask the oddly quiet Hamilton supporters. It's talent only when Hamilton is winning. It's an unfair technological advantage when anyone else is.

Do they randomly pick a car to inspect after every race?

That and why shouldn't the FIA monitor bendy front wings with camera surveillance? If that's the new standard going forward, seems fair?

Yes...New for the 2021 season:

“In order to complete deeper technical checks of the cars in the championship, the technical delegate will routinely and randomly select one car at each event following the race for deeper disassembly, conformity checks and checks of software and systems." “

"Additional checks may also be carried out on the competitor’s other car.”

“These checks will be in addition to the routine checks carried out by the technical department of the
FIA and reported at the conclusion of each event."

nope its the opposite..
when Lewis wins its the car, when someone else wins he definitely won driving a shopping cart by pure talent..

Apparently...IIRC Bottas's car was the first car to be so checked.

Could we just not have this one thread to be a balanced one about the upcoming race...without the moronic posts about Verstappen and the ones trying to slam Hamilton?

Toto blames Bottas for plane delay

Toto claims Bottas failed to bring his seat to the full upright position by 5mm which unbalanced the weight distribution and angle of the toilet holding tanks. Mercedes debrief will continue behind close doors, however Bottas will continue to clean up the sh!t on his way to Baku.

Russell on tap to jump in the #77 if required, size 10 driving boots and set of pre-punctured C5 tires will be prepped.

Valtteri Bottas set an unofficial highest speed ever recorded at 378 km/h (~235 mph) during a 2016 qualifying session driving a WILLIAMS.

Track intel:

- Surface roughness in Baku is one of the least aggressive surfaces of the season (similar to Monaco).
- Brakes are applied for approximately 20 seconds per lap, which is 2x more than Imola and 1.2 secs more than Monaco.
- T1 deceleration generates 5.6Gs. Deceleration from 334 km/h (207.5 mph) to 125 km/h (77.6 mph) in 1.85 secs.
