The reaction timer starts when the lights go out. When does it stop?
Henry.. That's been part of the discussion and I don't know that the FIA are equipped for this.
One would think that since they have an eye on just about everything that they could measure from the time the lights go out to the time the car starts rolling. However I don't think they are prepared to have light beams at every start box which is what would be needed. imo. They do have the transponders but I believe they only measure to when the rear wheels leave the box which leaves something to be desired as for R.T.
Which brings up something I have often thought about. Why is the race started when the lights go out? What was wrong with having a green light to start them?
Anyway I think it would be interesting to know who has a great reaction time and who was asleep at the wheel.
To achieve anything, you must be prepared to dabble on the boundary of disaster.”
