Quiz Section - Basic Facts
  • Until 1957 , the length of the championship events were of 500 kms or 3 hrs.
  • In the 1956 British Grand Prix during qualifying four drivers clocked the same time of 1m 44 secs; while another four cars were bracketed together on 1m 49 secs
  • The timing sensor is embedded in the track where it can register movement. A transponder mounted on the car triggers a sensor (fitted on the track) in each start position to identify jump starts, and a sensor in each team’s pit bay measures the duration of pit stops.
  • Tag Heuer’s (Official Timekeeper for Formula 1 races) timing center is so huge that it takes no less than 26 trucks to transport the center around the European leg of the championship, and two and a half Boeing 747s for races outside Europe.
  • Formula 1 timings are accurate to 1/1000th of a second. Why aren’t the accurate to 1/10,000th of a second?
    Imagine a car traveling at 240kmph. 1/1000th of a second represents more or less seven centimeters. But 1/10,000th of a second represents less than seven millimeters and devices capable of recording distances with this sort of exactness
    are not yet quite reliable.
