What does that column mean between position ("P") and gap ("+")?

W and O are possibly the water and oil temperatures at 5 lap intervals?

A couple of interesting notes, they tyre pressures were 19 on the front and 17 on the rear while today Pirelli have a minimum of 27 on the front and 24 on the rear and the car started with 147 presuming kgs of fuel while today they have a maximum of 110kg.

 

Can someone explain why there is toe in on the front? I thought F1 cars ran with toe out at the front and toe in at the rear?

147 could be litres, the limit was 150 that year iirc (for turbocharged engines).

Some interesting things on there.

Anyone know what Aeon is?

I like how the front wing is at position 11 out of 11 but the rear wing is .375 Girlfriends.

Can anyone read what there are 2 full of in the Misc box?

I’m guessing on this car any toe out on the front would have left it massively twitchy and unstable. Much shorter wheelbase and wider track than a modern car.

Must be because 147 kg of petrol would be about 184 litres.

Aeon is the bump rubber.

Yes absolutely. Completely blanked on what that could have been.

Definitely toe-out after lap 67…
