185-0 in 3.5 seconds....

What does? According to the Times, reporting on Lewis Hamilton's testing accident, the new Mclaren MP4-22. Unless Lewis Hamilton's driving it of course in which case standstill is reached somewhat quicker from that speed.....

Lucky man! Although I hope for his sake they find the accident was attributable to mechanical failure - 'Er Ron, great to be in the team mate, really appreciate the opportunity, oh, and sorry about smacking-up 50% of your new cars - no hard feelings, eh?'

Astonishing, isn't it? Pulls 5Gs in the process too...... Think I'd rather have an accident!

Re: 185-0 in 3.5 seconds....

FYI guys, with a reasonable fuel load (circa 70kg) better F1 cars are doing:
0-62 in 2.9sec
62-124 in 2.4 sec (not a typo)

Nearly 2G acceleration force.
With a 2.4L engine, that's not bad.

Cornering and braking loads are up to 6G, at least, they were on last years tyres. 200-0 in 3.6 seconds. With a light fuel load the times would be less.
