Anybody care to elaborate on what the specific infringement may be?
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.
Convenience for the race and precision for qualifying. You can program the brake bias more accurate from sim data then a driver can set between corners.marmer wrote: ↑Mon Oct 14, 2019 2:31 pmam i the only one that doesn't understand why renault might have done this. its not making the brakes better its just saving the driver a job that they don'y seem to struggle with unless its actually doing a bit more illegally we don't know about. it just seems to risky for a team to do for no real improvment
The drivers change bias for almost every corner, it's just two buttons they press with their thumbs, not much fussing around. Two clicks up for this corner, one down for the next, etc.
Realistically, if the computer was continuously crunching optimal solutions, that button press could just load the current optimal. It would be more like a driver activated pre-load than any skillful mastery on the "feel" of the car with an analog knob adjustment.Maritimer wrote: ↑Mon Oct 14, 2019 11:11 pmThe drivers change bias for almost every corner, it's just two buttons they press with their thumbs, not much fussing around.

https://racer.com/2019/10/13/racing-poi ... dmissible/“Renault F1 Team acknowledges the protest lodged by SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team concerning its brake bias system following the Japanese Grand Prix,” the statement read. “Team representatives have met with the stewards of the event at Suzuka, but due to the complexity of the 12-page dossier prepared by SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team, a further meeting will take place at a future date, to be defined."
“Renault F1 Team intends to use this recess to prepare an equally detailed case to rigorously defend its position.”
