A long winter without Formula 1 is over. From Monday 18. February over the eight day of testing to Friday 1. march will be 2019-breeds unleashed for the first time.
Extra Magazine love test and is present at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya both testuger; with a natural focus on Kevin Magnussen and Rich Energy Haas F1 Team.
many ask the same questions, so in order to avoid too many repetitions here are the answers to the classics:
Breaking news: There is, for the first time produced eight hours of live tv per day from the F1 test with English kommentarorer. It requires you to purchase access to F1 TV Pro, as from Monday, 18. February is also possible to access as a dane. Setup will be much less than for normal grandprixer, but there should be cameras at every turn.
Channels as TV3 Sport and RTL shows do NOT test live. Tv-teams focus on the interview and feature-feature.
Since the Extra Leaf in 2014 began to cover the Formula 1-test has a group of users dreamed about direct tv pictures from the test. We will maintain that it is not is crazy interesting to see eight hours a day. There is nothing on the game, and the first training before a contest is a thriller in relation to the test.
But give the final chance, if you belong to the group who think we are completely away from the board to say that our own coverage is plenty.
Comments and reviews of the livesendingen is more than welcome in the chat room.
Probably not. But don't expect, that we update every minute. We're not going to write every time a Racing Point leaving the pits or Williams, or for that matter Kevin Magnussen sets a time.
We regularly update with the highlights and try to find interesting nedslagspunkter and themes along the way. But we leave also the press centre occasionally to talk with interesting people in the paddock - both for use in livedækningen and later stories.
Look past the livedækningen some times during the day and don't be afraid to read a little behind. Perhaps you will find answers to your questions there.
Formula 1's official app update times are roughly the live. All other updates them by hand.
Compared to a regular contest, it is highly sparse, the information that is available. The fastest and latest times are, what is available. For example, you can only see what tires are used by to use his eyes and look, when the cars passing on the track.
Its new color-coded to 2019-season - only yellow, red and white for the five types - makes the discipline difficult during the test.
Not so much that people will want to ... the Test is either free practice, qualifying or races. At no time in telling the teams exactly what they working with - and it is rarely fast times. Some times it is more important to run the same laps rather than fast.
One does not know, how much fuel is run with or with what motorindstilling.
10 kg of fuel means approx. 0,3 seconds per. lap on the track outside Barcelona. So internally to the teams, how quickly they would be able to run.
Particularly in the first week is being spent much time on the system checks. A team like Haas must also find out how well their new simulator correspond to reality.
Generate pure breed just as much downforce in the fourth gear at X km/h., as the computer says? Etc. Etc.
Stability and no technical problems are a good indicator that something good is on the way. Vintertest is all about learning the car know and find the starting point for the rest of the season. So many laps without crashing is a good thing.
Towards the end of the second testuge you can put a little more attention to the ages - especially around noon, when the sun is high, and the asphalt is hot. But no one wants to show their true strength, before it becomes real.
Lewis Hamilton won his fifth world championship in the last year. Under vintertest, he drove to, in turn, only ottendehurtigste time ...
Previously, you had separate test teams associated with it, which drove so many kilometers, as it suited them. In 2008 the rules were tightened, so only some 30,000 test kilometers were allowed. The following year, the number of halved, while it was forbidden to test in the course of the season.
as Of 2014, it was again possible to test in the course of the season, but only on each of the specified dates and with the use of young riders.
At the moment it is only possible to test before the season two times four days - plus a few specified day of testing in the course of the year.
the Rest of the development is carried out in wind tunnels and by computer simulations. The way is chosen in order to save money and make the difference between the rich and the poor teams less.
that is the rule. Which is created in order not to make difference between rich and poor. Many of the teams would still only be able to provide with a car.
Take Williams, who misses the first testdag, because the last parts were not finalised.
How can you not make it up. A modern F1 racer is basically a kit. And there is no guarantee that the car is to vintertest is the same, which make up in Melbourne.
On a small team as Haas is the warehouse of spare parts extremely sparse at this early stage of the season.
Monocoquen from the test coming probably in use in Australia, but it is hardly decided to which side of the garage.
Some teams prefer to have both drivers in action every day. It has, for example, seen at Mercedes in recent years. Others - like Red Bull - gives the riders a full day.
Both solutions works ...
Some teams also provides the test drivers time. It can be for economic reasons or in order to give experience to, for example, a simulatorkører.
Haas’ new test - and simulatorkører Piettro Fittipaldi will have two half days to learn the right VF19’is to know. When the season is in progress, he comes to support Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussens from the Dallaras simulator in Italy.
