Default F1 NFS style

Formula One's New Chicane? - Planet-F1 News from planet-f1.com

So how about that? Shortcuts on an F1 track that drivers can use a limited number of times per race. Right now, the idea is getting shot down by the purists but the casual fan may be greatly entertained. What's your take?

The roundabout thing is pretty cool. I would love to see that in F1. The shortcut is ridiculous however. It's just making things more complicated and I'm pretty sure it will never be implemented.

Instead of a shortcut. It would be better to have an alternate route which is the same distance as the original and also takes the same amount of time to cover.

But a faster car stuck behind a slower car can use this route in order to gain an advantage over the car ahead, through his superior driving skills or car setup.

BTW, the KERS system also has a lot in common with NFS. I rem playing NFS a few years ago where i was able to use NOS for a limited amount of time, per lap.

As long as they dont get too serious with NFS and start using traffic on track, F1 could learn a lot from the game.

hahaha!!! can we have 'swords' and 'shields too'??? like in the movie death race? that should really heat up the ratings!!


on another note, its a really unique idea to introduce such changes... but doesnt this mean that all new tracks have to be purpose built?? or will they just modify pre-existing ones??

But still its a rubbish stupid thing. I don't think so that F1 management approves this chicane.

Chicane: Motor racing a short section of sharp narrow bends formed by barriers placed on a motor-racing circuit to provide an additional test of driving skill.


Stupidity!! Why don't we just have a demolition derby instead?

Chicanes are mostly there to slow cars down before a fast corner, not an additional test of driving skill.

Something like Roadrash would be really cool!

Why not a Cop Chase in F1? Bernie & his ideas can find a good place in the trash bins!

It came from a dictionary buddy. Not my head.

Why don't we have people pushing their cars around?
