Breathing Cars: Future Of F1 Sport

According to Oculus Rift, reality helmets and breathing cars are the future of the F1 sport. Designers and artists have crafted these two significant items to secure the sustenance of the F1 races.

Now the analysts of this sport have involved themselves in the discussion regarding how reality helmets can help drivers. First of all the manufacturers of these helmets claim that after wearing an augmented reality helmet, drivers will get to see representation of invisible forces like airflow coming off from the cars ahead of a driver on the tracks. This will allow the drivers use the slipstreams of the opponents during the race. But on the other hand, the rivals can also deal with it by using berating cars and create dirty winds. This prevents the competitors from taking advantage of opponents using slipstreams. Oculus Rift believes that these two new items will prove beneficial for the drivers in the current races.

The breathing car has been made of memory allow and this allows the car to change its shape, the changing of the car’s shape can also be controlled by the censors. Experts from the F1 field believe that this breathing car, once allowed on the tracks will change the definition of F1 car racing.

In 2014, the BMW M3 sedan and M4 coupe have also entered the F1 sphere. Now it is time to see how these two newborns of the BMW firm perform in the international circuit. But experts have said the M3 sedan and M4 coupe provide more refinement compared to the previous generations of M3. A new twin turbo six and seven speed dual clutch of the cars will keep its high pace, said the experts. But at the same time it is also true whether BMW will make its niche among fierce competition of Ferrari, McLaren, Virgin and Red Bull cars.

Horner slams new sensor technology of F1

Red Bull Racing boss Christian Horner has blasted the new fuel flow sensors that is at the heart of the new engines in Formula One are not up to the mark.

Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo finished in second place at the Australian Grand Prix but was disqualified from his position for exceeding the limit of fuel usage that is permitted by the FIA. Horner has blasted the decision and has appealed against it was well and he has said that the governing body needs to find better ways to police the rules it brings into the sport.

But the FIA has rebutted the claims made by Horner and has stated that the sensors was the best technology that they had available.

The sport has seen the introduction of a new turbo hybrid engine this season and has also introduced two fuel restrictions – a maximum load of 100 kg fuel load for a race distance as well as a fuel flow which cannot exceed a limit of 100 kg per hour.

Red Bull was repeatedly warned during the race in Australia that their car was running beyond the permissible limit but believing the sensors to be faulty, they continued the race following their own readings.

And contending that the team complied with the new rules at all times, he also announced that 14th April has been set as the date for the hearing of the appeal.

Horner stated that the teams need to work in tandem with the FIA to find a better solution because there was too much riding on it. He stated that there was too much invested in a Grand Prix and having a sensor that could move around and drift and even fail could be catastrophic for the future for the sport in the long term future.
