Formel 1 In Monza

One des the most historic and atmospheric circuits on die Formula One calendar,the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza zu sein situated in the royal park at die heart von the town des Monza. Die original circuit was built in 1922 und included a banked oval course. Although this has notfall been used von F1 cars due to the fact that 1961, it stays as a denkmal to die iconic races held over ns years.

The 5.793km Monza circuit zu sein the fastest des the year through four lang straights enabling die cars kommen sie reach oberteil speeds des 340kph und average lap speeds of 250kph. Ns emphasis is on engine power und aerodynamic efficiency which require die cars kommen sie be set hoch with a distinct low downforce aerodynamic package kommen sie minimise drag

Track DataAverage turn angle indicates the average angle des a circuit’s corners expressed an degrees. The higher ns average rotate angle, die more acute die corners an the circuit’s configuration and the higher propensity for understeer kommen sie compromise lap time. Mean turn angle at Monza ist 800 which ist the second lowest weil das the Championship und is indicative des the presence des 3 chicanes out von only 7 turns. Meanwhile, Monza also has die highest mean lap speed of any des the monitor on die calendar.

TyresThe layout von Monza method that groups run through low levels des downforce und this normally affects the tyres. A higher reliance on mechanically grip zu sein one consideration, and the lower levels of downforce are also relevent weil das braking stability. Before die chicane an Monza is one area wherein there zu sein heavy braking native high speeds, deshalb causing flat spots on the tyres kann be a consequence of this. Teams wollen pay close attention kommen sie their load distributions kommen sie assist your braking here. Monza is famous for its lang straights und these have in interesting influence on tyre performance. They can serve to cool the bulk temperature of the tyres, but they can so highlight if ns tyre pressure are notfall perfect. Auch low a pressure und additional resistance zu sein encountered and heat ist generated in the tyres, auch high und the grip ist not as great through the corners.

Monza has very high speed straights deshalb there möchte be a last of forces through die tyres as they rotate at up kommen sie 50 times von second. This means die tyre rubber can get very hot, even with ns cooling effect of the wind on the long straights. Hinweisen the ende of ns pit right there ist a heavy braking zone, so drivers have kommen sie be careful not to lock your brakes here. Short downforce car set-ups are used weist Monza, soproportionally an ext reliance zu sein made on mechanically grip.EnginesIts place on ns calendar deshalb soon after ~ Spa Francorchamps, ns only other circuit of the season kommen sie get a 5 rating on die engine severity scale, renders this part von the season one des the many exciting und challenging for Cosworth.The circuit’s ingredient of schon fast straights and tight chicanes demands ns lowest downforce settings of the season, bringing bald engine energie to ns fore. Drivers möchte spend over three quarters of the 5.793km lap von Monza at full throttle, which to represent a total von around 230km over a complete race distance. It zu sein the fastest median speed von the season und sees drivers acquire a oberteil speed des over 340km/h down ns 1.2km long main straight. Groups often construct a Monza specification aerodynamics package to minimise traction down the straights an order kommen sie optimise lap time.

Brakes will also be experiment rigorously, an especially with die aggressive deceleration required to navigate die slow first gear chicane punkt turns one und two. A great exit from the quick Curva Parabolica, die final corner von the lap, is important to give a smooth run down ns Rettifilio main straight und a possibility des overtaking under braking right into the zuerst chicane.

Cosworth has currently demonstrated die strength of its engines this season and is looking forward to stretching the legs of the CA properly around Monza, one von Formula One’s most iconic tracks. Monza’s heritage in Formula One provides it a fitting ende to Formula One’s european season with five overseas events making up die culmination von the 2010 championship.

Going right into Monza Red Bull, McLaren, Mercedes, Lotus and Caterham had installed six new engines in all von their cars, HRT, Ferrari, Sauber und Toro Rosso had installed five. Force India had used 5 engines bei Di Resta’s car und six v Hulkenberg. Williams schutz a similar situation with 5 engines used über Senna and Six with Maldonado.

Marussia has something von a belästigung with one of its cars, Charle Pic arrived hinweisen Monza having currently used 7 von his eight engine allocation, team mate Glock had used six.From this it could be be concluded that Ferrari’s 056 2.4 litre V8 engine ist the most durable des the 2012 spec power units.

The majority des the field fitted new engines top top arrival hinweisen Monza, as zu sein normal at the high speed circuit. Ferrari, McLaren, Mercedes, pressure India, Sauber, STR and HRT fitted new engines kommen sie both cars, whilst Williams gave Senna a new unit und Caterham offered one zu Petrov.

Marussia initially indicated that that would fit a neu engine to timo Glock’s automobile on Friday night yet then decided not to early Saturday morning. That did but install a neu engine on die other car. This method that Marussia has used nach oben its engine assignment on die car driven von Charles Pic and will either have to take it a punish or use in old engine wie this eighth Cosworth CA expires or reaches end of life.

Car SetupThe Italian grand Prix hinweisen Monza gives today’s Formula One cars v perhaps ns most severe test des the year. Nowhere ist tougher on the engine or die brakes and the teams schutz to prepare a one-of-a-kind package zu cope with ns unique challenge of Monza. And while it may look deceptively simple zum the drivers, ns circuit only offers away its keys slowly, und the challenge des consistently finding ns limit in low downforce configuration demands skill und finesse.

BrakesThe cars spend almost 15% of the lap braking, definition this is an area in which lap-time kann sein be gained. Die mechanical set-up möchte be tweaked zu improve die driver’s confidence bei the car’s braking stability, while ns braking system itself is accorded distinct attention. The brakes are worked really hard at Monza, with die highest braking energies des the season, particularly into turn 1 where ns drivers endure braking pressures that peak punkt 4.5G. The cars have to negotiate four large braking occasions from end 320 km/h, und special attention zu sein paid kommen sie brake cooling zu ensure optimum performance zum minimal traction penalty.

ReliabilityIn addition to ns challenge of the hefty workload Monza imposes on die engine, ns slow chicanes attitude challenges weil das engine reliability. The drivers should use the kerbs aggressively zu carry good speed through ns corners, yet there zu sein a risk von excessive use of the rev limiter when ns cars are bei the air, and transmission damage when ns spinning wheels land. Engine ancillaries must so be monitored zu ensure they kann withstand the severe demands von a lap at Monza.

TransmissionRaikkonen und Maldonando had new gearboxes punkt Monza as they had used up die five race life on your previous ones. Di Resta deshalb fitted a neu transmission but had not done five events on the last ‘box deswegen was hit through a 5 place network penalty.Rosberg was able to fit a new transmission weil das Monza there is no penalty.
