I compared the speed of the race leader of all the races that are dry and the safety car weren't deployed.
The first ten laps of Sepang, 2011 leader is 27s slower than 2010.
The first eight laps of Turkey, 2011 leader is 3s slower than 2010.
The first eight laps of Spain, 2011 leader is 20s slower than 2010.
The first eight laps of Valencia, 2011 leader is 14s slower than 2010.
The first 15 laps of Brazil, 2011 leader is 16s slower than 2010.
And the outright pace of the 2011 car is a lot faster than 2010.
And in all the dry races, 2011's fastest laps are a lot slower.
These are Nico Rosberg's lap time from Lap 39-44 in this year's Monaco GP.
And here are the fastest laps from the GP2 races that weekend.
Race 1 S. Coletti 1:23.665
Race2 S. Coletti 1:22.853
I think it is a humiliation for Formula One to go slower than GP2 under any circumstances.
And 2014 is coming up. The combination of the new V6 and the Pirelli tyres is not very convincing.
I am not hoping F1 to get back to 2004 level of speed, I am just hoping that the drivers can go a bit quicker. At least visually quicker than GP2.
Can anyone tell me that if I post this video onto Youtube, will I get into any trouble?
Because I used LOTS of video contents from FOM, BBC, SKY...
