Formula One and film industry – the two worth-watching documentaries about motorsports

Are you planning to spend your evening after the tough working day watching a touching film? Or do you rather prefer playing online games? Or, maybe, you are fond of betting on some sports matches – anyway, if it is your case, be ready to explore betting options at https://tonybet.com/en/prematch/baseball – one of the world’s largest online sports betting platforms.

Motorsport is a different art of sports compared to baseball, basketball, hockey, or even cybersport because it involves motorized vehicles. There is a special beauty, dynamic, technical aesthetic about these competitions. A magnificent unity of racers, and their cars – what could be more fascinating, than that? That’s why there are many films devoted to motorsports, and especially Formula One. Let’s take a deeper look at the two documentaries about the Golden Age of Formula One – the years between the 1950-s and 1994.

The development of F1 insights, powered by AWS

By Rob Smedley | F1 Chief Technical Engineer

The start, or launch as it’s known within F1, is absolutely edge of the seat stuff for fans, drivers, and engineers alike. It is one of the most exciting parts of a Grand Prix race and yet it’s all over and done within seconds.

Given the importance of these initial few seconds of a Grand Prix race, the teams put a huge amount of effort into every detail. There are a number of precise and concurrent actions that the driver needs to carry out in harmony with the vehicle control system and power unit. This is by no means a simple task and requires, as is the norm in Formula 1, the optimal blend of both engineering and technical excellence and driving skills.

A simple example: too little throttle in the initial getaway phase … Read the rest

2021 Formula 1 Turkish Grand Prix highlights

Introduction

 

The 2021 Formula 1 Turkish Grand Prix was won by Valtteri Bottas that was run in damp conditions, with Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and his teammate Sergio Perez completing the podium.

Light rain peppered the track well before the race and while the rain stopped, conditions called for intermediate tyres throughout.

Bottas led the race away from the pole, his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton having started 11th thanks to his 10-place engine-related penalty, while Verstappen followed the Finn. By Lap 11, Hamilton was up into the top five having passed Pierre Gasly. The defending champion would be promoted to fourth when Sergio Perez pitted on Lap 38.

The pit stops came thick and fast from Lap 35 as Lando Norris was first to choose new inters, Verstappen in next on Lap 37 from P2, and Bottas pitting from the lead … Read the rest

Robert Shwartzman: “If one day I manage to go into Formula 1″…

Almost all Formula One teams have already signed contracts with the drivers for 2022. And if an extension of the contract with Mick Schumacher is expected in Haas, then who can become Valtteri Bottas’ teammate in Alfa Romeo is not yet clear. Different drivers are called applicants for a seat in the team. But in fact, all eyes are on the “youth” of Formula 2.

Most of the rumours revolve around Guanyu Zhou, a Chinese racer who is currently second in the drivers’ championship. Also Théo Pourchaire, a young racer from France. He is now in fifth place. And then there is Robert Shwartzman, who is spending his second Formula 2 season for the Italian PREMA Racing.
