    Default 2015 F1 Russian Grand Prix

    Weather is going to be cloudy but dry.



    McLaren use their remaining tokens, but start at the back. Sucks that Button doesn't get the new engine, but maybe he'll be the only one who finishes the race.

    Yeah my 4 year old could probably draw a better track than that.

    Default Carlos Sainz Jr conscious after crash in Russian Grand Prix practice

    Carlos Sainz Jr conscious after crash in Russian Grand Prix practice

    The final practice session for the Russian Grand Prix was called to a halt after the Toro Rosso of Carlos Sainz Jr suffered a heavy accident 35 minutes into the run.

    Sainz appeared to lose control braking going into turn 13, hit a wall and went straight into the Tecpro safety barriers. Initial pictures appeared to show the car buried nose-first relatively deep in the protective wall.

    Marshals and the medical team swiftly attended the accident and were working to extricate the driver when the session was stopped, including using cranes to lift the safety barriers.

    Soon after the incident Sainz was removed from the car and taken to hospital in an ambulance. He was seen giving a thumbs-up as he was placed into the vehicle.

    The Toro Rosso principal, Franz Tost, said: “Carlos is conscious, he’s with the doctors now. They will see if he can continue the race weekend. As far as we’re aware he’s OK.”

    Tost did not want to speculate on what caused the accident until the team investigate. “We need the data, as it looks now the car got lost under braking. But we must find out why and what happened,” he said.

    Sainz’s manager later said he is doing “perfectly” and tweeted a picture of him sitting up in a hospital bed giving the thumbs-up, apparently unharmed.

    This is the 21-year-old Spanish driver’s debut season in Formula One and he has generally impressed, with a ninth place in Malaysia his best finish. He is the son of the former double World Rally champion Carlos Sainz.

    The accident occurred one year and five days after Jules Bianchi suffered a nose-first collision with a trackside recovery vehicle that ultimately led to his death nine months later. Sainz’s impact was also very heavy and although he appears to have gone under the Tecpro barriers, they appear to have served their purpose.

    Advertisement

    The Tecpro barriers were manufactured by a French company in collaboration with the FIA in 2006. They are made of a series of foam-filled polyethylene blocks, reinforced at their centre with a 2mm metal plate. These are then linked by high-tensile nylon straps and backed by another set of empty, sealed polyethylene blocks that absorb the energy from a crash.

    Max Verstappen walked away from a major crash into the Tecpro barriers after hitting Romain Grosjean earlier this season at Monaco.

    Given the nature of Saturday’s incident, even if Sainz is declared fully fit he will almost certainly not be allowed to take part in qualifying because of the danger of a second impact occurring.

    The GP3 race due to take place after practice was cancelled as repairs to the barriers continued. However, qualifying will take place at 1pm BST as planned.

    That crash was massive. I like how Mercedes was worried that Russia will be another Singapore.

    Silverstone, damaged barriers required a red flag for repairs. In Russia, we use duct tape.

    ^^ lolz. I actually feel bad for Rosberg, not even 2nd in the WDC. Would have loved to see an on track battle with Lewis.

    Kimi got a 30s penalty and ended up in 8th instead of 5th.

    Damn, after seemingly recording their first double points finish Alonso got penalized for cutting turn 16 and dropped to 11th.

    Hopefully they got some good data on the engine upgrades, but they don't seem to have any impact if qualifying was any evidence.

    Did Lewis make it out of the country? http://www.9news.com.au/world/2015/1...ith-champagne?

    I don't think there would've been much of a battle. If it wasn't for the safety car, Rosbergs mistake in turn 5 would have lost him the lead.

    Merc sealed the constructors championship after Kimis penalty too.

    Alonso didn't run the new engine in the race. Only during FP1 and FP2.

    The tokens Honda used refined the ICE further. The ICE isn't the problem, you can see that the car has enough power out of turns. The problem is that the turbo compressor is too small and they can't change it until the winter due to packaging constraints. With the compressor too small, the mgu-h is harvesting a lot less energy than the competition, so it has to use power harvested from mgu-k under braking. Because of this, it runs out 1/2 way down a straight, and once it runs out they're down 120hp and gets passed like they're standing still.

    Don't expect any miracles until they solve the entire ERS system this winter.

    Hamilton didn't spray Putin. The camera angles there made it look like he did. I even joked to Mibz that he should have.

    Ah, why did they only run the new engine in practice only? Are we going to see both cars with it in the U.S.? Wish I had time to watch all the sessions like earlier in the season.

    Did you watch the video in my link? He definitely got some spritz on his back and his jacket proceeded to soak it up.

    Ran in FP to get data. Russia doesn't suit the car, so ran an old engine instead, saving the good engine for races where it can make a difference. Engine only lasts 4 races with 5 left including Russia.
