Winning an F1 Championship requires more than clocking the fastest laps; It requires ”race craft,” which includes knowing when the racing line isn’t the key to victory. Today we're going to explain why the racing line isn't necessarily the best way to win a race.

  • I think it is Centrifugal Force and not Inertia. Inertia is its tendency to go in a straight line but in a circle like that, the outward force is Centrifugal.

  • People still watch F1? Most boring series there is. "Jump in the line. Everybody!" Would be much more fun to watch the supposed "best drivers" in hard to drive cars. Set them up in a car that is 2500 lbs, 500 hp, 235 width tires, and limited aero. Watch them wrestle the cars around the track. Now that's entertainment.

    • Not at all. Did you watch the race? Hamilton made Max move to the right first, leaving him enough space on the left, and he was already more than half-way alongside before the turn. Then Max decided to leave Lewis a nearly impossible line (at least for a lap1 car heavy from all the fuel, on tyres not ready yet) and it backfired.

  • I think the sharp turning line has more to do with leveraging the insane straight line braking and acceleration of race car. By braking late and hard, then turn the nose of your car quickly to set up for an explosive straight line exit you basically ended up faster overall than following the ideal racing line which assumes constant velocity. Nvm, you explained it at 11:58! Great
