I love conspiracy theories: true or false, there is just something fun about them.
And, I love the F1 – have ever since I was a little kid.
Plus I am a huge fan of Sebastian Vettel – after all, he looks so similar to my older son!
Red Bull with vodka – yum…
So, when all four of these things are rolled into one – entertainment ensues:
‘Red Bull Racing driver Sebastian Vettel is quick. Too quick. The three-time Formula 1 champion dominated the Singapore Grand Prix, leaving his closest competitor 32.6 seconds behind as he took his eighth win of the season.’
‘That’s where the engineering conspiracy theories begin.
The leading speculation, posited by Racecar Engineering, is that Red Bull has managed to link the suspension in Vettel’s RB9 to the hybrid Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) onboard. KERS has been around for a few years and gives drivers a power boost in short bursts, and because it’s an electric motor, the torque output can be tweaked on-the-fly — just like a traditional traction control system.’
Oh, the intricacies of engineering miracles…
This weekend’s race in Tokyo, I’ll be not just watching but also listening!
