Remark of the day

Monitor limits was the most important speaking level eventually weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix, notably when associated penalties resulted within the ultimate race end result not being confirmed till hours after the end. Drivers spoke about potential options, and the issue with the present monitor limits rulings on the Crimson Bull Ring, and F1 Triviareaders did too.

Circuits, as a substitute of utilizing flat white traces to indicate monitor limits, ought to use rumble strip traces (often known as sleeper traces or alert strips) like they do on the shoulders of some roads within the UK, which trigger a tactile vibration and audible rumbling transmitted by way of the wheels into the automobile.

They’re used on UK roads to alert drivers after they drift from their lane. Particularly in areas which endure from mist and fog.

Undecided how they might have an effect on bikes although.
