i have some new indider knowledge from work!!

in 2008 formula one teams must use a system to convert kinetic energy when braking into driveable energy through the wheels. This system will use the energy created during braking by releasing it (up to 80bhp) in a short burst of approx. 6.677 seconds.

so basically we are going to see A1GP style boost system. i hope that makes sense! tried to simplify it lol

This is very interesting... wonder whatthe weight penalty of a system like this will be. Does it have to be a mechanical system or could it be induction based (like a turbo!? :cheesy:).

nice stuff mate,
Pre-qualifying is now not considered a good idea it takes up more precious track time with no real interst for viewers ( so no revenue ).
There won't be any more money in running EXTRA sessions. :roll:

i thought so aswell...it's one of teh green energy reclamation things...although i think it's bit of a gimmick...it will get boring and they'll take it away..

it can be either mechanical (flywheel), electrical (capacitors and a generator) or chemical (also uses some electrical is is most unlikely to be used). it is goin to be 2008/9 regulationand if u want to research it more google for the KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System).

heres a quote from http://www.f1network.net/main/s169/st112471.htm

Quote:
"Well, the so-called KERS system, which is the Kinetic Energy Recovery System, has been worked on for about the last year," says Fry. "We’ve got to be racing it in 2009, that means we’re going to have to be testing it next year, so this year will be the development phase but, you know, that’s just the thin end of the wedge.


also see... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regenerative_brake for more information...

Christian Klien will be a free agent at the end of the season and is hotly tipped to join Jarno Trulli at Toyota in place of Ralf Schumacher

Vettel - 'I want to race' in 2008

(GMM) Sebastian Vettel on Thursday would not be drawn on rumours this week that he is heading for a race seat at Toro Rosso in 2008. With BMW-Sauber looking to field an unchanged lineup next year, it was reported that the team's promising reserve driver Vettel, who is 20, could be loaned to STR for up to two seasons.

Vettel/Bourdais/Bruno Senna are all names I've heard!

i see that the grid penalty will be replaced by weight penalty, hmmm......the best finish by a pole sitter with a 10 grid penalty was kimi with mclaren, 3rd place.(correct me if i'm wrong)

2008 new entries (Possibility)
Richards' Prodrive
Stoddart's Minardi F1 Team
Jordan
Direxiv (mclaren B)
Carlin

*Possibility of new Point system

*A standard Electronic Control Unit (ECU) supplied by McLaren Electronic Systems (badged as Microsoft) :lol:

It will be interesting without traction control who performs better.
