F1 2011 (Formula 1 2011)

The Red Bull RB7 is a Formula One racing car designed by the Red Bull Racing team for the 2011 Formula One season. It was driven by defending champion Sebastian Vettel and Australian driver Mark Webber. The car was launched at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain on 1 February 2011.[3] Sebastian Vettel was the first driver to test the car.[4]

The car was fastest throughout Barcelona testing with Vettel at the wheel. It won the first race of the season at Melbourne with Vettel, whilst Webber finished fifth. In the nineteen races of the 2011 season, the RB7 only failed to finish in the top five twice, when Mark Webber crashed out of the 2011 Italian Grand Prix and when Sebastian Vettel retired from the 2011 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Vettel used the RB7 to claim the 2011 World Drivers' Championship in Japan and Red Bull won the World Constructors' Championship the following weekend in South Korea. The car achieved three 1-2 finishes during the season. It is one of the most dominant Formula One cars ever built, winning 12 of the 19 races and claiming all but one pole position in the 2011 season, in part due to the innovative but controversial exhaust-blown diffuser.

The 2011 FIA Formula One World Championship was the 65th season of FIA Formula One motor racing. The original calendar for the 2011 Formula One World Championship consisted of twenty rounds,[1] including the inaugural running of the Indian Grand Prix[2] before the cancellation of the Bahrain Grand Prix. Pirelli returned to the sport as tyre supplier for all teams, taking over from Bridgestone, marking their return to Formula One for the first time since the 1991 season.[3] Red Bull Racing was the reigning Constructors' Champion. Red Bull Racing's Sebastian Vettel was the defending Drivers' Champion, one of five World Champions appearing on the grid. Vettel won his second World Championship at the 2011 Japanese Grand Prix, becoming the youngest driver, at 24 years and 98 days, to do so. Red Bull Racing won the Constructors' Championship.

Following the confirmation that there would be no new additions to the grid for 2011, Joan Villadelprat of Epsilon Euskadi and Jacques Villeneuve of the combined Villeneuve-Durango teams both announced that they would still attempt to join the grid for 2011,[57][58] exploring the possibilities of taking over an existing team. Villeneuve later admitted to considering possibilities outside of Formula One, including extending his NASCAR Nationwide Series campaign, or moving to Australia to pursue opportunities in the V8 Supercars.[59]

On 16 April 2010, Bernie Ecclestone confirmed that there would be twenty races in 2011; all the races from the 2010 season and the addition of the Indian Grand Prix.[2] A provisional calendar was announced on 8 September 2010,[91] which was confirmed on 3 November 2010.[92] This was later revised to nineteen races with the postponement and later cancellation of the Bahrain Grand Prix.

Pirelli's medium-compound tyre made its race debut in Valencia, which once again saw Vettel on pole. There was much speculation about the potential for the field to be shaken up by the introduction of engine mapping bans, but the reigning champion led for most of the race, ceding the lead only when called in to pit. He comfortably gained his sixth victory of the season when the leaders moved onto the medium compound tyres, with second-placed Fernando Alonso demonstrating that the Ferrari 150º Italia was unable to use the medium tyres as efficiently as the Red Bull RB7. With all twenty-four cars finishing the race, Hispania Racing's Narain Karthikeyan became the first man in the sport's history to finish a Grand Prix in twenty-fourth position as the race broke the record for the most classified finishers; the 2011 Chinese Grand Prix had previously seen twenty-three classified finishers.

For the 2011 Formula 1 season, the STR6 was designed and built entirely in-house in Faenza. It was fitted with a Ferrari engine which used KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) for the first time. The driver line-up did not change from the previous year: the Swiss Sébastien Buemi and the Spaniard Jaime Alguersuari.

The 2011 Bahrain Grand Prix was due to be held on the 13th of March, but was postponed on the 21st of February due to civil unrest in Bahrain resulting from the Arab Spring. On the 3rd of June, it was announced that the race was to be held on the 30th of October, as round 17 of 20, with the Indian Grand Prix being placed as the season finale. However, the race organisers chose to cancel the event, and the Indian Grand Prix was put back into its original position.

Note 2010 spec cars are in italics, it is not reliable to make direct comparisons between them and the 2011 cars due to regulation changes. Also it should be noted that testing pace is rarely indicative of the full potential of the cars. Times from the previous test are in grey.

The 2011 Formula One season will be the 62nd FIA Formula One season. The FIA announced they would consider adding a thirteenth team to the grid .[1] On 8 September, 2010, the FIA announced that they would not add a new team. The same twelve teams from last year will compete this year.[2] The race schedule was going to expand to twenty rounds with the running of the Indian Grand Prix,[3] but the Bahrain Grand Prix was cancelled due to the high amount of protesters. Bahrain was briefly put back on the schedule before being cancelled again by the organizers of the race.

The FIA released the race schedule for the 2011 world championship. A new race, the Indian Grand Prix, had been added. However, the Bahrain Grand Prix was called off due to the political unrest in the country.[69]

In the last decade alone, there have been enormous changes in Formula 1 cars. In 2011, F1 cars were 189 in (4,800 mm) in length, while today they are over 197 in (5,000 mm) long. The cars have also grown wider. Today's are 79 in (2,000 mm) wide compared to a width 71 in (1,800 mm) in 2011.

2021 Formula 1 cars are heavier than their 2011 counterparts, due in part to the weight of the Hybrid Power Units (HPUs). In 2011, F1 cars weighed a minimum of 1,411 pounds (640 kg), they weighed 1,645 pounds (746 kg) in 2020, and the minimum was increased to 1,658 pounds (752 kg) in 2021, and to a planned 1,741 pounds (790 kg) in 2022 (all weights include the driver but not the fuel). Between 2020 and 2021, the minimum weight of the power unit went up from 320 pounds (145 kg) to 331 pounds (150 kg). This weight stipulation was an attempt to level the playing field, because more well-funded teams had access to expensive weight-saving materials.

Another change since 2011 is the number of engines available to the racing teams. Back in 2011, each car had eight engines available to use across the 19 season races. Today, teams are limited to three Internal Combustion Engines, Turbochargers, and MGU-H units, and two MGU-K, ES, and CE units.

The high downforce means that loads on tires have increased. The front and rear tires on 2021 F1 cars experience around 50 percent more load than they did back in 2011, and to deal with that increased load, tires have changed dramatically from those used in 2011. Today's tires are 25 percent wider than those used in 2011, giving them more contact with the ground, and they generate more grip, leading to faster lap times.

The Drag Reduction System (DRS), first introduced in 2011, is an adjustable rear wing that moves in response to driver commands. It shifts the mushroom-shaped "dirty" air following in the wake of a leading car up and over a following car that is within one car length of the first car. The purpose of the DRS is to reduce aerodynamic drag in order to increase top speed and promote overtaking. The DRS cannot be deployed at all points around a track, but only at designated sections.

Probably the biggest change in Formula 1 cars since 2011 is in data acquisition. In 2011, F1 cars were able to log around 500 channels of data, while today's cars have around 1,500 high-rate data channels. This means that on a typical race weekend, a single car collects around 70GB of data, while in 2011, only 18GB of data would have been collected.

2021 F1 cars have hundreds of small, wireless sensor nodes positioned all over the car, each of which acquires data and communicates it back to a central data logger. In 2011, data sensors were bulky and transmitted in the 400MHz range. Today's sensor nodes are tiny, and they transmit at much higher frequencies.

Some of these sensors monitor tire pressure and temperature, whereas in 2011, tire temperature was determined by looking through an infrared camera as the car went by. Today's F1 cars come with a warning system that alerts if a crash generates for longer than five milliseconds a lateral force greater than 15 g, or a vertical force greater than 20 g.
