Ayrton Senna famously crashed at this corner while leading the 1988 Monaco Grand Prix, handing the victory to his teammate and rival, Alain Prost.Put simply, this means that the attacking driver has managed to get their car into a position where they are on the side of the track where the defending driver needs to turn, ie. alongside on the right heading into a right-hander, or alongside on the left into a left-hander.
To make an overtake stick on the inside of a corner, a driver only needs to have their front wheel in front of the defending car's rear wheel for it to be judged a fair move. On the outside, the cars must be side by side. Drivers can defend their position, but they can only move once. Any more, and that's weaving.
As you see, the green line is air. The DRS, drag reduction system, just make the car have less drag, so that combined with a slipstream will give you a huge advantage makes it almost impossible not to overtake someone.
Is there a DRS zone at Monaco
Monaco is one of the three circuits which have only one DRS zone, the others being Suzuka and Imola. During the race, it is active along the pit straight from Antony Noghès to Sainte-Dévote, for a total of 510 m (560 yd).When a driver is told to 'box, box', they're being instructed to make a pitstop. This is because 'box' sounds more distinct than 'pit' over the team radio, so there's less chance of confusion leading to an error.But Singapore is a beast like no other. It is renowned for being one of the hardest races to compete in both physically and mentally, meaning it requires a kind of preparation unlike any other race.
None. Even the top speed thing is really not something a supercar (those are now actually called hypercars) can do better than a F1. The reason is that a F1 isn't limited to its top speed by the fact that that is the best the car can do. A F1 car isn't a fixed object that gets designed one way and then kept as such.
Is F1 physically hard
This is a physically demanding sport that requires the drivers to train like Olympic athletes throughout the season while also having to do all of the work with the car and race.Almost all Formula One drivers, can and do, drink when competing in a Grand Prix. They must drink to replenish the lost fluids in their bodies. Or else, with slower response times they risk a collision when racing. Drivers may even pass out due to extreme dehydration in hot conditions.Exclusive Pit Lane Walk

It is illegal if there are signs or road markings clearly prohibiting it, or if it's done in an unsafe, reckless or uncontrolled way. Examples of this include when you don't have clear visibility of the road ahead – maybe in poor weather, such as rain or fog – or if you must break the speed limit in order to overtake.
The Melbourne Grand Prix debuted in 1928, so the track down under has become a staple in the Formula racing community. With 16 total turns, Melbourne is labeled as Very Easy, due to how little adjusting you have to make throughout the race.
"The tunnel is a very slippery place with a lot less grip than the rest of the track and marbles bouncing off the barriers and coming back onto the racing line. "The first person that tried to use DRS in the tunnel was going to put it in the wall.
Who activates DRS in F1
The attacking driver will manually activate DRS by pressing a steering wheel button – this can be arranged on the front or back of the steering wheel depending on driver preference.As air passes over a Formula 1 car's surfaces it produces a wake of turbulent air that hampers the aerodynamic flow of cars directly behind it. This wake – nicknamed 'dirty air' – can be of benefit to a following car on the straight, as the car in front is effectively punching a hole in the air and doing more work.Race records
