2011 Formula 1 world championships will begin in Australia


The highest peak in motor sports, the F1 World Championships began in Australia from 25th to 27th March.

As for the 2011 season where the Bahrain Grand Prix which was scheduled for the first leg suddenly became unsettling because it was canceled due to concern of domestic situation and so on, it is the same as the change from 2009 to 2010, and also a significant regulation change Has been added. There were also changes that aimed at promoting overtaking (overtaking) this time, and there was a scene in which the effect was actually seen in the race race.


2011 FORMULA 1 QANTAS AUSTRALIAN GRAND PRIX Results - The Official F1 Website

All 24 cars participate in the Grand Prix. From this year's 107% rule restored to qualifying, if we could not record within 107% of car top time in the first round of qualifying, we will not be able to participate in the race, and two Hispania racing conflicts with this I can not run in the final.

As a result, the final race was battle with 22 cars. Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull) who started at the pole position almost finished in a pole to win without losing the lead. In second place, Luis Hamilton (McLaren) who did not change the position from 2nd position start this time also entered. Vitaly Petrov (Renault), 6th place in the third place, entered.

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa are fourth and seventh, respectively, third fastest Mark Webber (Red Bull). Kobayashi Kamui (Sauber) who is participating as the only Japanese driver this season has finished in 8th place, but has been disqualified as a violation of regulations is found on the car body.

Significant changes in this term
There are some major changes in 2011 regulation.

First of all, it was not used in 2010KERSResurrection. Although this rule was available in 2010 in 2010, there was no team to adopt as FOTA organized by participating team decided not to use it. KERS can power up the machine by about 80 horsepower for less than 7 seconds at maximum, and it is used for start dash and over take.

Also, it appeared in 2010F ductWas prohibited, and DRS (variable rear wing) was introduced. The function of increasing the maximum speed by 10 km / h can be obtained when functioning, but the operation is not based on the switch, but the driver is working by covering the hole in the cockpit with a part of the knee or hand , It was banned because this is a dangerous one-handed driving. On the other hand, the DRS has almost the same effect (the speed is increased by about 10 km / h), but if there is a condition for use and the difference from the previous car at the measuring point before the last corner was less than 1 second As long as it is allowed to be used straight.

The 107% rule in the qualifying mentioned earlier also revived since 2002 season. This year, the machine with low fighting power seems to be few races that the first round of qualifying is the last run if you do not aim for the advance to the finals. By the way, in the Australian Grand Prix, Vettel's time was 1: 25.296, so the 107% line is 1: 31.265. To the contrary, the two time which could not advance to the finals was 1: 32.978 and 1: 34.293, so one second 7 has to be packed down.

Pirelli has returned to F1 for the first time in 20 years because Bridgestone withdrew from the supply of tires.
