- Code: Select all
Note especially the starting procedure. After driver arrives to his slot on the starting grid, he adjust KERS discharge. We can see dials on the steering wheel display while adjusting - 2 to 3 and back to 2.
After adjusting KERS discharge, he uses central rotary switch to set clutch engagement?
The last values seen on the display before the start are "ENG..........40" which could represent idle RPM x 100, so idle speed is 4,000 rpm. Shortly before red lights goes out, Paul Di Resta press the accelerator and value ENG increases to "ENG..........131" = 13,100 rpm.
Question about the 13,000 rpm launch level:
How does the driver peg 13,000? Is this number fixed before hand and the clutch set to optimize for that rpm?
