F1’s 2019 rules changes you may have missed

F1's 2019 rules changes you may have missed

By: 

Formula 1 fans are waiting for the new-look cars to emerge next month, with an aerodynamic rules revamp set to deliver very different front and rear wings.

The push to get rid of the ‘outwash’ effect of the old wing designs, and help reduce the turbulence for following cars, is aimed at trying to help improve the chances of overtaking.

What to watch out for in testing and the upcoming season.

Watch ex-Formula 1 driver-turned-TV-pundit Karun Chandhok talk his way through the grand prix grid at Autosport International, and give his verdict on what to watch out for in testing and the upcoming season.

Joined by F1 Racing magazine’s executive editor Stuart Codling for their ‘grid walk’, Chandhok begins by talking about the upheaval at Ferrari – with the arrival of Charles Leclerc and promotion of technical director Mattia Binotto to team principal.

Monaco – Visiting by Motorhome, Caravan or Camping

We went to the Monaco GP in 2017 and instead of staying in Monaco this time, we used a wonderful Campsite in Ventimiglia, Italy. It’s just over the border and very reasonably priced. The owners run a shuttle service to the train station and back making this a very practical and economical option. We ended up at the train station in the city after a 20 minute train ride and a 5 minute walk brought us to the gates. The site is called Camping por la Mar. Great people and nice site. Was very convenient and we will definitely visit them again. Their site is here. http://www.campingporlamar.com/

For the celebrities and VIPs, being on the F1 grid is all about the glitz and glamour. For the teams, however, it’s a high-tension situation where they need to ensure that both the car, and the person who’s about to take that car to the edge of its performance envelope, are firing on all cylinders. Join Toro Rosso on the grid at the 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix to see what the Italian squad actually get up to in the moments before a race begins.
