Formula 1 Is Back – 2014 The Year Of The Most Unbelievable Modifications Ever
The Formula 1 commencing in Melbourne, Australia for the year 2014 is expecting few of the most radical changes in the history of the sport. A list of massive changes has been imposed on the existing ones so that the game can observe few of the most unbelievable modifications ever. The installation of Energy Recovery Systems, electric motor and the degradation of 2.4 l liter V8 engines to 1.6 liters V6 Turbo being few of them.
The cars being used will contain “eight-speed semi automatic” gear boxes and the ratios of the gears has already been predetermined which is less likely to be changed. The down force of the vehicles will be reduced with narrower front wings and those in the rear are planned to be removed altogether. The upward angle exhaust has also been repositioned so that the gas doesn’t blow out to the rear floor.
The revamped design of the aerodynamics in the form of chassis, engine, exhaust and weight will now produce much lesser noise paving way for the fans to cheer up for their favorite racer. The electric motor produced up to 60 KW for 6.7 seconds in a lap while the same is expected for a 150 kW in 30 seconds.
With all these speculations the first thing that comes to mind is about the punters of Formula 1. To gain the edge in the year 2014 significant knowledge need to be gathered as everything is unpredictable now.
A little bit of going back to the past will throw some light about the correlations. While in the years 2003, 12’ and 13’, irrespective of some races throwing finishing order into loads of muddiness, there were some correlations to be extracted from the finishing line and qualifying race positions.
Now what goes mind boggling is the strategy of the racers and their teams. The four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel may face severe competition as the Red Bull team managed to finish a trial race much confidently in the Bahrain International Circuit.
History suggests that the drastic changes make reliability as a major issue. Martin Brundle even went to the extent of commenting that, “I wouldn’t be surprised to check half of the fields being occupied with racing cars as the difficulties have risen this season”.
On top of all these, there is now the concern of the fuel which is limited. The drivers will have to complete their tracks with 100 kg of fuel which will impose the teams to use 60% less fuel as compared to the previous years. This change is essentially employed to make swerves to the driving styles of the racers. However the limitation of fuel is quite unlikely to make a barrier for qualifying.
These points are important for the bettors to note as they cannot correlate fuel and other engine factors with the qualifying mark. Looking to the positive sides of it, with the tricky situation, the chances for the bettors to earn more value for the bets placed. Now Formula 1 bettors can make major profits if the key points goes well and fine.
