today was the European GP for Formula 1

i know u guys dont really follow it, but thats besides the point

the race got a heavy dose of rain, which made for a very interesting day

the above video shows the chaos which ensued once it started to rain heavily (lakes forming on the track)

 

enjoy

F1 technology is unsurpassed. I read in a magazine from 2005 that one of the materials used in the current (05) jet fighter planes was deemed outdated in F1 cars in 1991. F1 cars are usually 85% carbon fiber. Jet planes are no where near made of that much carbon fiber.

They are fucking beast, I think you are crazy to drive as fast as they do in those conditions.

Where is the European GP held anyway? If it is England, what do they expect other than heaps of rain??

Damn foiled again in my attempt to make a joke at the UK weather.

Isn't it flooded there at the moment?

At least the Germans can drink good beer and watch cars crash in the rain I guess.

How come the ones that slid off toward the end stayed there and didn't try to get back on the track? Were they stuck or were they just like "fuck it" and gave up? I don't know shit about car racing.

i think most of them were fucked (wrecked the car)

the one who did get back didnt really hit anything too hard

those things are delicate and dont like going across rocky gravel

 

its the Euro GP cuz thats what its called, there are many more GP's all over Europe but bearing the countries name where they are, this ones just European

Well the Germans once thought they were the best nation in the world, so for them to claim to be the European GP is no great stretch.

 

I personally like to watch the Monaco GP, as that is a damn hard track (as found out from playing Gran Turismo, haha) and the scenery there is nice

It's the gravel trap - they're on most race circuits.

I think it is mainly a precautionary solution for slowing down an at-speed car when it goes off the track, lessening the impact with the (tire)wall.

 

But to answer your question, once a car is in, it's stuck where it then requires the use of a crane truck (as you'll see towards the end of the clip) to fish it out.

I missed the beginning of this race and man did i miss a lot.

I'm suprised Hamilton was aware enough to not stall the car and keep it running.

 

this was awesome too. Alonso passsing Massa

 

Hayabusa-have you ever been to an f1 race?
