Re: Stability control in F1?

Well, F1 should be a beacon of technology for cars, which could benefit further developments in the current stability control offered on stock cars.

However, F1 is first and foremost a sport and one which should depend on drivers' skills to succeed.

So my vote is No, Thank you.

Re: Stability control in F1?

No no no no no no no no no,

enough already, traction control already flatters average F1 drivers, stability would remove even more of the skill required, and while F1 has been instrumental in developing ASR & VDC type systems, there must be enough momentum now so they can be further developed without ruining F1.

you may as well just watch a bl**y computer simulation,

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and we're calm again,

Why not completely replace drivers with computers then?

Re: Stability control in F1?

this is dreadfull news. but f1 has been suffering for a long time now.
it was 1989 when Ferrari introduced the flappy paddle gearbox. ok it took a while to perfect but theres no overtaking now due to missed changes
