F1 racing: When women no longer appear on the roads

If you have to point out images that always appear at racing events, especially F1 racing, then there must be hot models with standard bodies.


They are of course not the main characters of the races, nor do they play any important roles. The job of these girls is simply to put on sexy clothes, smile at the camera, welcome riders and most importantly: indirectly advertise brands by attracting glances of the audience. Sometimes, they have the task of waving the flag to start the race, but absolutely nothing is too significant.

Not significant in terms of expertise, but the image of beauty attached to supercars seems to have become common sense in the public eye. Car launches or promotions must have a beautiful model team. Many of the racing roads in Hollywood blockbusters start with a fiery girl coming out in front of roaring cars, admiring the riders and signaling to start the journey to find out who is the fastest one.

1

Yet, since 2018, the audience will no longer be able to see those girls on the roads of F1 racing again when the tournament committee decides to stop recruiting models in all stages of the race.

Sean Braches, commercial director of F1 racing, said: “We feel the use of models at Grand Prix events is no longer consistent with the F1 racing brand value and goes backward with the values ​​of modern society”.

In fact, F1 racing is just one of many sports events that use beautiful models to serve the tournament’s commercial image. Can include boxing matches, UFC wrestling matches, beautiful racing events or Billiard tournaments. And F1 is not the first sports tournament to decide to stop using the model. Earlier, the World Professional Darts Association also announced a similar decision.

This decision of Mr. Sean Braches has officially closed over 50 years of participation in F1 racing of female models worldwide. In the feminine era as the throne along with the female harassment, scandals are more and more exposed in the entertainment world, it seems time for companies to be more careful in using female images.

Of course, the elimination of F1’s female model has met with strong opposition. Since the Japanese singer, Rosa Ogawa, became the first girl to promote brands on the track in the 60s, the concept of vehicles to be accompanied by beauty has been won the world. widely received. Despite many criticisms in the 1970s because of revealing clothing, this trend still flourishes and opens up employment opportunities for many girls.

Anyway, the final decision was made and certainly, the roads of the F1 racing season 2018 will no longer be available but the beautiful female model. Does that make this planet’s number one high-end racing car lacking in appeal?

The British Grand Prix will stay in Silverstone until 2024

Just before the British GP took place, the organizers announced they had successfully renewed the F1 contract until 2024.


F1 reached a new agreement with one of the legendary races of the tournament after long negotiations. The old agreement between F1 and Silverstone will expire when this season ends. Therefore, many people are concerned that this weekend will be the last GP of England to be held at the track which has been attached to F1 since 1950.

However, F1 executives succeeded in signing a new, five-year agreement, with the British Racers Club (BRDC) – owners of Silverstone. “We believe the stronger F1 with Silverstone and Silverstone is also stronger with F1”, said BRDC chairman John Grant.

In the past, there has been speculation that London will host another race at F1, alongside Silverstone. Grant believes that Silverstone’s new agreement with F1 does not affect the likelihood that the British capital will have two races to host F1 events in parallel.

England first organized an F1 race at Silverstone in 1950. Since 1987, this track is the annual British GP organization. “We have always asserted that. If you want to look to the future, F1 needs to keep historical places like Silverstone and England is considered the cradle of this sport since 1950”, executive director F1 Chase Carey said.

F1 claims to keep the traditional races in Europe. However, the deal with the Spanish and German racetrack will expire in 2020. That will be new challenges for the leaders of the sport. Lewis Hamilton, who will aim to win Friday at the British GP this weekend, claims that Silverstone is the track that F1 cannot afford to lose.

So Silverstone is the 20th race track listed on the F1 schedule of the season 2020. Among the 2019 F1 races is still the Spanish GP, the German GP and the Mexican GP have no tickets.

Silverstone is the first F1 race to be held in 1950’s British history and is the third-largest F1 race track after Monza and Monaco. The following year F1 will celebrate the 70th anniversary of its establishment and development, so the parties are very happy with this new contract.

F1 racing: A fresh young wind, ending the nearly 13-year waiting period

F1 racing saw the top 2 in history when Verstappen had an incredible comeback after the first round to forget and prevent Leclerc from reaching his first career victory.


This is the sixth victory and the second consecutive time Max has crowned at the Red Bull Ring home turf after returning from the fourth starting position in 2018.

The Dutch driver was the last to defeat Mercedes from Mexico last year and in Austria recently, ending the successive circuit of the “silver arrow”. This was the first victory for Honda after Jenson Button’s final coronation at Hungarian GP in 2006, ending the nearly 13-year waiting period.

 Leclerc dropped the victory after leading the majority of the race for the second time this season, leaving him unable to have the honor of being the winner of all three racing modes at Spielberg (once won at GP3 ​​Series and F2 before). But anyway, the 2nd place is still his best F1 racing achievement to date and beat his teammate in the second stage in a row. Vettel started ninth but finished in fourth place after overcoming Hamilton in the final rounds.

This is the first time in 2019 they did not stand on the highest podium and ended the series of 10 consecutive victories, not being able to balance the McLaren’s 11-stage record set in 1988. Hamilton only got the top 5 results and also lost sequences of consecutive podium and Bottas have for the first time participated in the top 3 without Hamilton since Canadian GP in 2018.

McLaren won the top battle for the third time in four stages when Norris excelled on Friday. The papaya colored car showed strength throughout the weekend and even Norris had times to step into the top. Sainz also had a memorable race from 19th, he managed to finish at No. 8, helping the team to score the third double scoring of the year. Now after 9 stages, they have surpassed their 2017 scores and are only 10 points behind what they have done in 2018.

Alfa Romeo is the remaining team in the top 10 and has the first double scoring record of the year. The team made good use of the advantage in Q3 to get the 9th and 10th place finishes. Through that, Raikkonen had the sixth stage this year with Antonio Giovinazzi, and the Italian driver finally got it. first score at F1 racing and is the 18th driver to score points in the year. Currently only Williams has no score but they have the fourth stage in a row to win the title Pit Stop the fastest.

Austrian GP this year saw a lot of accidents on the 6th day of training when the racers faced strong winds. However, all 20 cars avoided the bumps on Sunday, and all returned safely. This race is the 9th stage in history that has been completed without DNF, particularly in the hybrid turbo era, this number is 5, representing the high durability of F1 racing cars in recent years and the near future.

Vettel: Easy to be angry because of losing so much

If Formula 1 (F1) needs a scenario to enliven a season dominated by Mercedes, they certainly have it at the Canadian Grand Prix. The penalty for Vettel in Canada GP is a testimony.


Each F1 supercar with a price of millions of USD is the crystallization of the peak of technology, science and technology. To see firsthand the speed machines, fans have to spend a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, but this opportunity is coming to international sports and speed lovers completely for free!

Lewis Hamilton won his fifth victory in seven stages this year and Mercedes’ winning series continued to last after Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, who seemed to win, was fined 5 seconds for dangerous driving. The one who laughed in Vettel’s pain was none other than Hamilton, and therefore, the 78th victory in the career of the British racer, helping him get closer to the sixth world title, became one of the most controversial thing.

1

The moment that caused a social media storm and provoked the sulk from Vettel after the race – he initially refused to go to the podium before being comforted by officials, and then leave the interview. midway – happened in round 48.

Vettel led the race from the start, after winning a pole on Saturday, his first time in 17 races. However, Hamilton is not moderate. After entering the pit-stop, the Mercedes started chasing the German driver, shortening Vettel’s 5-second lead to less than a second in 10 laps.

In the other nine laps, Hamilton continued to exert pressure by keeping the distance within 1 second with the Ferrari. And then Vettel made a mistake.

The German racer in the 3/4 bend is too fast, the whole car gets on the grass and enters the track. When Vettel did so, he lost control and drove the car to the side of the track. It is worth mentioning that Vettel almost knocked Hamilton’s head off when the British driver was cornering properly, before being pressed by Vettel to the divider.

2

Canadian developments at the Grand Prix will definitely prolong the debate. However, the key point is that this is not the first time Vettel is in a situation of being under the pressure of the race. This is even a problem for the German driver in the last two years or more, when he and Ferrari have sought a hopeless solution to prevent Hamilton and Mercedes.

Last year, Vettel made five important driving mistakes, the errors slowly took away his chances of competing for the championship that he could at least maintain to the final stages, and could have won if those errors do not occur.

This year, after 7 stages, Vettel made 2 mistakes. An error in the race with Hamilton in Bahrain, and now in Montreal. People can agree with the penalty or not, but everything will be fine if Vettel makes no mistakes that lead to controversy.

3

This year is not last year. However, while Mercedes has won all seven stages, in fact, three of them are likely to belong to Ferrari – if Charles Leclerc’s engine does not encounter problems in the final rounds in Bahrain, Leclerc did not meet ears. in qualifying in Azerbaijan and Vettel are not penalized in Canada.

Even if Ferrari could improve the car to challenge Mercedes in every race, Vettel could not expect to beat an opponent of the same level Hamilton had achieved in the past three years if he could not find a way limit those mistakes.

There will be a Formula race exclusively for female riders

With the aim of helping the female riders soon approach the prestigious race Formula 1 (F1) in the future. A new sports car race of Formula 3 (F3) system for the weak has just been launched and will officially roll in the middle of next year.


This new W Series mainly uses the 1.8-liter Tatuus-F3 racing car and will kick off in May 2016, free for between 18 and 20 female riders to register for the competition. Racers will have to undergo thorough testing, evaluation and training programs before officially entering the competition.

The total value of the prize will be up to 1.5 million USD, in which the champion will receive 500 thousand USD and the corresponding bonus levels will be spread evenly to the driver ranked 18th in the final.

According to the organizers, there will be about six racing races spanning about 30 minutes each of the top European races, most of which have organized F1 races. In addition, the organizers also plan to expand the tournament to the Americas, Asia and Australia in the future. The W Series will receive support from Technical Director Adrian Newey of the famous Red Bull Racing team in charge of coaching, with mentors coming from former F1 driver David Coulthard.

The F3 is often considered to be the start of the sports racing industry for young riders, before entering the higher levels of the F2 and finally the prestigious F1 track. No female racer has ever played in the F1 tournament since 1976, but with the launch of W Series, organizers expect to provide a platform for female riders to develop skills, before joining. Equally compete with men at higher levels in the most exciting speed sport in the world.

Since the F1 tournament officially kicked off in 1950, Italian racer Maria Teresa De Filippis became the first woman to ever play fair with fellow men in an F1 race, when she finished with the position at the Belgian Grand Prix in 1958.

2

No female racer has ever won a single point in F1, although after Teresa De Filippis, compatriot Lella Lombardi had a half-point in the Spanish Grand Prix in 1975. Perhaps Lombardi could have There was 1 point when finishing the race in 6th place, but the race was forced to stop after 29 rounds due to an unexpected accident and the riders were only awarded 0.5 points. A total of female riders born in 1941 attended 12 races from 1974 to 1976.

3

Two decades after Lombardi’s last F1 race, three female riders Divina Galica (England), Desire Wilson (South Africa) and Giovanna Amati (Italy) all tried the race to classify the Grand Prix, but all are not eligible to enter the main race. And 22 years have passed after the last time Amati ever competed in the Brazilian Grand Prix in 1992, the new sports car race saw the participation of women in the test stages, with runners Susie Wolff tried to run in four stages in 2014 and 2015.

Juju Noda – the youngest F1 car racer in history

Physical training sports are hobbies and passion of many people, both male and female.


However, high-risk sports seem like only men being brave to complete the race. But Japanese girl, 11 years old, Juju Noda is the first child car racer in the world to drive a standard Formula 1 FIA racing car.

Juju Noda (11 years old) is considered the first child car racer in the world to participate in the Formula 1 FIA racing car. She is the youngest athlete to sign a professional racing contract with special privileges. But she is still not old enough to join the track until she is 16 years old.

1

Local tournament commentators commented that her talent was extraordinary and rare. So what about her makes others curious and interested. Therefore, when asked what her future goal is, Juju did not hesitate and immediately replied: “I want to win F1 racing (Formula 1) and be the first girl to do it.”

Maybe Juju’s talent and speed of passion inherited from his father, Mr. Hideki Noda. Her father is also an F1 driver, discovered and encouraged by the girl very early, he helped her to participate and break the record of Formula 4 racing at Okayama International Racecourse with time is 1 minute 32.8 seconds, in U17 category.

2

No one expected a girl who weighed less than 30kg to drive a race car with a mass of 4 times body weight. Previously, Juju cried because it was not strong enough and endured to drive. But Juju took it as a stepping stone to a long step forward. After all, since he was 3 years old, Juju tried driving a small race car, and more recently, she won almost every race she attended. Therefore, when asked to participate in the F4 race, Juju did not miss this opportunity.

In the unofficial F4 race in the recent U17 category, Juju defeated two other riders older than her. But things were only at the beginning when her father wanted her to continue her natural talent at a higher level, racing cars F3 (Formula 3) at the end of 2017. Naturally, to raise a level Higher requires Juju to work harder.

3

Although there are remarkable achievements, Juju is not complacent and continues to focus on his path. The idol and rival she always wanted to compete with was Lance Stroll – an 18-year-old Canadian F1 driver. Stroll athletes are champions F4 and F3 before reaching the current F1 champion. And that’s the way that Juju is right for her to pursue.

Mercedes remained unrivaled in the new season opening stage

Mercedes started the 2019 season with a one-to-two championship at the Australian Grand Prix, although the first-place finisher was not the current world champion Lewis Hamilton.


Not Lewis Hamilton or Sebastian Vettel, Australia’s Formula1 season championship racer, Valtteri Bottas. The Finnish rider surpassed Hamilton from the start after his teammate started slowly in pole position. Even, Bottas can get bonus points thanks to the fastest race.

Leaving the team mate over led Hamilton to be left quite faraway because he had to focus on keeping Red Bull’s Max Verstappen to take second place. Of course, when Verstappen passed in 3rd place, This is clearly a sad day for Vettel and Ferrari racing team.

1

“Why are we so slow?” Vettel asked his racing team after two-thirds of the race. “At this point, we don’t know”, someone answered. Rather, that’s all Ferrari’s story at the Australian Grand Prix.

Because before the 2019 season kicked off, many people thought Mercedes and Ferrari would not be inferior in speed. Instead, Bottas and Hamilton were overwhelming from the beginning, while Vettel pointed to fourth and Charles Leclerc to 5th. Particularly for Bottas, the Finnish driver even got a bonus point for reaching time. 

2

It seems that after 2018 it is difficult not to win any stage compared to 11 podium wins and Hamilton and Bottas world championships are very determined this year. Of course, by winning in Australia, he showed his ambition to compete with his teammates and deserved to be a candidate after his impressive performance at the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit.

Similarly, the Ferrari racing team, where Vettel can feel the pressure from teammate Leclerc. The Monaco driver made some minor mistakes in Ferrari’s debut, but, thanks to a late stop, he had newer tires of Vettel inthe following rounds. Leclerc quickly closed the gap of 12 seconds between them before following Vettel in the final round.

F1 racing: The most scientific and fast-paced sport on the planet

Enchanting curves, breath taking sprints or the pinnacle of fame and money for Formula 1 racing (F1) become the most exciting, fast-paced and exciting science sport on the planet.


The most compelling racing car on the planet

Formula 1 racing (F1) is one of the most attractive and famous sports tournaments on the planet. Every year, the tournament is held in many countries in continents around the world, bringing together the participation of top teams and athletes.

1

Each season, 24 of the world’s top riders represent famous automakers such as Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz or Renault together to create breathtaking speed matches. To participate in this tournament, the teams must also invest huge expenses of up to hundreds of millions of dollars, the F1 turn into the most expensive sport in the world.

In return, their riders and racing teams also earn huge profits after each race. According to calculations, the total amount of bonuses poured into this tournament every year is up to billions of dollars.

Sports of science and speed

F1 racing is considered the pinnacle of speed and fame. From sprints of up to 350 km/h, spectacular crab beats, ravishing races to the huge amount of riders receive, all make up the most famous racing sport in many last decades.

2

But going parallel to speed and fame, the threat to riders is no small when controlling silver arrows that go at tremendous speeds.That’s when science needs to be involved. The reason for this sport is “Formula 1” is by racing cars, but the protective outfit or the smallest bend on the track is calculated with absolute precision.

People love F1 because they simply love speed, but there are people who are passionate about it because of the beautiful, mesmerizing curves, or the absolute accuracy that science brings, but all of them come together to create So the number one sports car racing planet.

MotoGP racing: The beginning is promising, the 2018 scenario recurs

This 2019 is the beginning of a new era for both Moto2 and Moto3 youth form with a lot of changes, one of which can easily be seen as the classification race format.


Andrea Dovizioso and Marc Marquez have been the main characters of the 2018 season and although the number of other “roadblocks” this year has increased, they are still the focal point in the first race of 2019. A re-confrontation currently the race 12 months ago and the winner is still the main character of that day.

Following MotoGP, which has adopted the racing format Q1 and Q2 in the past few years, now all 3 modes will determine the order of departure through 2 different runs. There is a slight difference between MotoGPand the other two modes when in Q1, the 4 best-performing riders will enter Q2, where they will have 14 other names (straight into Q2 thanks to the test run achievements), creating the battle pole of 18 riders.

1

At the first classification run with a new format,19-year-old driver Aron Canet was the pole winner, also his first time since the race in Germany in mid-2017. Canet’s main rivals at the opening stage. This is Lorenzo Dalla Porta (2nd class) and Kaito Toba, with the best starting position in his career.

A lot of new changes, but the tension and unpredictability of the main Moto3 race is still something that makes people unable to take their eyes off. Top top always appear no less than 10 cars making 1 small mistake can also create big fluctuations. The most notable driver in this group is probably Romano Fenati, who has made a comeback after the controversial action last season. He soon showed his experience to Canet, Toba and Dalla Porta and had a great chance to win the stage.

2

However, he made a serious mistake when there were only 4 laps left. When monitoring the track giving a warning that exceeds the limit track, riders need to be more careful or they will really be penalized. Fenati received a warning and said that he had been punished (though he has not yet) and went to the “Long lap penalty”, falling out of the top 10 unfortunately. Meanwhile above the fierce competition to the last minute and finally Japanese driver Toba showed a great tactic, about the first stage in his career. Followed by Dalla Porta and Canet, who won the first podium in 2019.

Meanwhile at Moto2, the pole position is also a completely new name, Marcel Schrotter. This is the first time in 12 years that the German driver’s career has won a race, beating Xavi Vierge and Lorenzo Baldassarri with 0.146s and 0.199s, respectively. Luca Marini of the 2018 SkyVR46 champion team ranked 4th but could not be underestimated.

3

Only the third place, but Baldassarri is the one who has the best departed owl and rose to the top after the first bend and Marini behind has lost 4 places to 8th place and is lucky to avoid the collision touch the top bend in 3 cars. The # 7 steering wheel completely takes control of the race and creates a gap with the pursuing team.

\However, like Moto3, a veteran became the focus, it was Thomas Luthi. From a position outside the top10, he gradually moved to the top and had a chance to win. But because the time left is not enough with Baldassarri’s excellent defensive ability, the Italian driver has reached the first stage of 2019, a start that could not be better. Luthi finished second and teammate Schrotter won the final podium position when defeating Remy Gardner 0.002s.

4

The first race saw the most close top 15 gap in MotoGP history (Dovi is 15s more than Johann Zarco), signaling a very stressful and exciting year ahead. Having 4 NSX has a chance to win the exciting season awaiting us ahead.

Basic changes in vehicle design in the F1 racing of 2019

Only a few days left, the rotation of Formula 1 cars rolled. Let’s find out about the most fundamental changes in design compared to the previous season.


1. Wind vane first

The most noticeable change in the design of this year’s Formula 1 car is the front wing, which is larger in size, but the design has to be streamlined to comply with the FIA ​​rules. For years, teams have been trying to create front wings with extremely complex designs, both to create compressive forces that help the car to stick more at high speeds, both to make the air blown away. area of ​​the front two wheels, help crab better.

Đua xe F1: Những thay đổi cơ bản về thiết kế xe ở mùa giải công thức 1 năm 2019 - Ảnh 1.

More specifically, the front spoiler of F1 car this year has the width increased by 200mm, the size is 2 meters, the height increases by 20mm and the nose of the vehicle extends forward by 25mm. This year, the FIA ​​banned racing teams from taking advantage of the wind blades to change the airflow impacting on the front wheels of the racing car, but instead only worked to create the compression force to help the car more stable at high speeds.

2. The rear spoiler

In order to help the races become fair and there are many opportunities for the car to overtake the car in advance, the rear spoiler is raised to 20mm to help the airflow that the front vehicle creates is blown higher, without impact. Go to the car behind while chasing.

Đua xe F1: Những thay đổi cơ bản về thiết kế xe ở mùa giải công thức 1 năm 2019 - Ảnh 3.

In addition, the drag reduction system mounted on the rear wing is larger than 20mm in height, and when opened, will make the vehicle run faster than the 2018 DRS by about 25%, according to FIA calculation. The rear of the rear wing must have two additional LED lights to increase the ability to identify the vehicle in front of each race in bad weather conditions.

3. Cooling brake pads

Brake ducton F1 racing cars this year will have a much simpler design, when the FIA​​ prohibits teams from using complex designs to cool the brake pads, sometimes up to over 500 degrees Celsius, has created an aerodynamic advantage for the car. There are no more carbon-fiber details, but the wind-cooled port will only serve a single task, like the name of this detail.

Đua xe F1: Những thay đổi cơ bản về thiết kế xe ở mùa giải công thức 1 năm 2019 - Ảnh 5.

The carbon fiber parts of the F1 body, right behind the front wheel are also required to have a simpler design when their height is lowered by 150mm, and reaching out to 100mm in front to handle the airflow from the wind vane first. Once again, designing a car like this will make the rear car more likely to chase in each race when the dirty airflow (also known as rooster tail) that the vehicle in front creates no longer affects it too much.

4. Weight of the driver

In the past, when measuring the volume and size of Formula 1 cars, the FIA ​​often weighed both the vehicle weight and the weight of the driver sitting in the car. In this season, the dry weight of the vehicle must be at least 740kg and more importantly, the driver must weigh at least 80kg, including clothing, equipment and helmets.

Đua xe F1: Những thay đổi cơ bản về thiết kế xe ở mùa giải công thức 1 năm 2019 - Ảnh 6.

If the driver does not meet this number, the team will have to put additional ballast pieces into the cockpit to ensure an 80kg figure. These dumbbells must be placed in the cockpit instead of other locations to increase the aerodynamic balance of the vehicle.

5. Add fuel

To stimulate riders to test themselves and push every race to the limit, in each race of the 2019 F1 season, the fuel tank will be dumped up to 110kg of fuel compared to 105kg as last season. Combining both the 1.6L turbo V6 and the energy recovery system from braking and heat, riders will no longer have to worry about fuel economy in long races.

Đua xe F1: Những thay đổi cơ bản về thiết kế xe ở mùa giải công thức 1 năm 2019 - Ảnh 7.

6. New gloves and helmets for riders

The FIA​​ requires all racers to wear a new glove with sensors sewn into the fabric to monitor the heart rate and oxygen levels in each blood. These data will be sent to the emergency team at the races to take timely action if serious collisions happen.

Đua xe F1: Những thay đổi cơ bản về thiết kế xe ở mùa giải công thức 1 năm 2019 - Ảnh 8.

The new helmets of F1 season riders this year are designed and manufactured according to new standards, FIA 8860-2018. This helmet is more resistant to bumps and prevents the car’s debris from hitting the steering wheel better in bumps at speeds of 300 km/h. Sunglasses have a height of 10mm lower to minimize the risk of foreign objects penetrating this glass, causing harm to riders.
