  • I'm gonna be honest, I didn't KNOW but I was correct that it was the driver's knowing the braking distances

  • One word answer why your wrong: MUGELLO! Best drivers in the world distracted by a light, don't think SO.

  • Fun fact, on a certain sports car there may or may not be someone who has installed a switch on a steering wheel that can activate the brake lights independently of the actual application of the brakes themselves. ;)

  • I reckon that given the option the designers said no, we don’t really need the extra weight or power consumption of brake lights and the drivers said it’s nobodies business when I brake, if they can’t see it stop rolling I’m not about to help them. F1 is raced in open wheelers so wheels are almost always easily seen ( the exception is when they come off and bounce up ) ....

  • Question: what is the point of the teeny tiny windscreen on the F1 cars? They're not tapered and don't cover a drivers hands when turning so presumably not for aerodynamics?

  • I think it could be used in a cheeky way as well. I mean if I was a racer ahead of you and felt intimidated by you I could essentially brake check you by applying very light pressure on my brake. Only enough to bring the light on and prevent you from accelerating.

  • F1 cars drive faster than the speed of light so they don’t need brake lights because it wouldn’t work. next video why don’t f1 cars have a horn? Because they drive faster than the speed of sound (sonic booms). :p

  • i could see brake lights being useful in case of oil spills, crashes or a part detaching or any obstacle on the track. in case the car has to brake in a part of the track they normally wouldn't brake at

  • It's a 3 minute video, but for those impatient ones, here's the TL;DR: - Cars brake so fast from such high speeds it wouldn't matter if you saw a brake light or not, you'd just crash into the back of them anyways. Besides being useless, it also saves weight.

    pcooper985pcooper985Hónapja
  • I don't agree. I think brake lights would be very useful in some situations, which occur relatively often. Or let's say, not a braking light but a foot-off-throttle light. It's not about braking in the braking zones, but braking when nobody is expecting it. Take the 2020 race in Portugal for instance, how the back field didn't expect the drivers infront to be braking. It would also be great in practice and qualifying, to signal overtaking cars that you're aware of them and driving off pace.

    RAF SHAZONORARAF SHAZONORAHónapja
  • One other important reason is the regulation... Everything is about the regulation ... For instance, If it wasn't mandatory on GT, they wouldn't have brake lights ! (As in tourism cars)

  • They should have break lights to show the fans what is happening. It would be nice to see how different drivers/cars brake for a corner. F1 really needs to do more for the fans. No fans= no F1

    finton mainzfinton mainzHónapja
  • It would still be nice to have brake lights for the fans to see who is braking first, late, how far into the corner etc and be a tool for commentators to dissect how a move was completed etc.
