Why have the start times changed? F1's new owners, Liberty Media, believe moving the start-time of races to 10 minutes past the hour will improve experience of TV viewers.

Additionally, the hope is that the later

United States Grand Prix: Sebastian Vettel needs a good finish to disrupt Hamilton's party (Pic: GETTY). Hamilton described Juan Manuel Fangio as the 'godfather' of Formula One on Thursday and said it was crazy to think he could soon join the late Argentine as a five times world champion. Fangio was, until Michael Schumacher won seven titles, the man with the most and the 1950s champion remains revered as possibly the greatest driver of all time and certainly of his deadly era. "He's the godfather for us, one of the greats from the beginning and will always be admired in the sport," the Briton said.

The idea was voted through unchanged on Friday by the world council of F1's governing body the FIA. It means the system will be used for the first time at the season-opening Australian Grand Prix on 19 March.

Formula One writer Gianluca D'Alessandro praised the temperament showcased by Vettel in this victory: Gianluca D'Alessandro @Gianludale27. Good race for Seb, especially after the VSC. Well managed, without any mistakes, despite Hamilton's pressure from behind. That's what a champion does. Still some work to do to improve the feeling with the car, but it's a good starting point ☝️ #AusGP #Vettel. The former Red Bull driver has enjoyed a remarkable career, and this weekend will see him involved in a Formula One grand prix for the 200th time.

Pictured above is a timer we recently built for a customer which will be used in a Formula 1 style race start lighting gantry. This gantry will be fitted at the top of a slope with toy cars held by a small gate latched up by a small solenoid with a spring loaded core. When the race is to start, the solenoid is energised which drops the gate allowing the cars to roll down the slope in their race. Then, when all five LEDs are illuminated, there is a random time interval of between 1 and 3 seconds before all the LEDs are turned off. The lights turning off indicates that the race is to start. The buzzer sounds for 1 second, while the on board relay energises for 1 second to energise the solenoid and start the race. If you need any kind of bespoke timer or controller, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your requirements. Posted in arduino, projects, timers | Leave a comment.
