Haas is stuck towards the back of the F1 grid in 2020, and now it's dropped its current drivers for next year, Romain Grosjean revealed one of the big problems that has hindered the VF-20 all season. In this video Edd Straw explains what's causing the Haas's performance to change so drastically between practice and qualifying, and why it becomes so difficult and unpredictable for Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen. And does it hint at one of the problems hurting Ferrari this year too?

  • I'm not feeling very sympathetic for HAAS due to this issue. Basically they buy as much of their car from Ferrari as possible instead of designing the parts themselves. As a result, they don't understand the parts they are using and due to this they are unable to fix the issues.

  • Williams have always been very critical of the Haas model i.e. using as many Ferrari parts as allowed by the regulations. Williams will feel vindicated in their views. If Haas had designed their own rear end, they (probably) wouldn't have this problem. They may, however, have an entirely different set of problems but we'll never know. If Ferrari are suffering in the same way, it speaks volumes for Le Clerc's skills but casts a shadow on Sebastian. I'm a big fan of Sebastian and followed his career closely. I know what he likes in a car and his driving style. This gives me great hope for his upcoming future in the new Aston Martin team. As long as the car suits his style, we'll see the old Sebastian again. I can guarantee that he has had a word with the racing point engineers to explain his driving style and what he expects from a car. If they have listened, Sebastian will have a track weapon at his disposal and some lovely results will be on the cards for 2021. I'll keep my fingers crossed..

  • Excellent video. I can understand the problem going from FP3 to qualification, where qualy doesn't allow the time to heat the rear suspension to the FP3 levels. What I don't understand, is why during race conditions, the cars wouldn't return to similar level of FP3-like suspension heat.

  • I think the problem of the rear suspension come from the Ferrari gearbox structure. Suspension arms are attach to the gearbox and if you already have structural problem when cold, the problem become worst when the heat is up

  • It's simple. Anything "Ferrari" related this year is plain garbage. Sure, Ferrari has a couple of podiums but compared to the last 40 years, a couple of podiums doesn't cut it for Ferrari. I don't blame Haas, Gunther, or it's drivers for the problems this year. I'm curious to see what happens next year.

  • So, the inconsistency problem appears not to be overheating, but rather cooling down. Sounds like the area needs to be pre-heated before qualifying so it is already hot when going out on the track. Sort of like pre-heating the tires.

    Wolf GamingWolf Gaming18 hari yang lalu
  • The real problem with Haas, from the very beginning, was hiring Dallara, a team which was never competitive in F1, to design and build "their" car. It would have been understandable as a temporary measure, to train their own personnel in an unknown technology and turn into a real F1 team. Since they didn't, they deserve no sympathy.

  • Yeah. I have a theory. Hot air is less dense, therefore, any hot air coming from the radiators & engine should be ducted away from the rear wing. Cold air = more downforce, hot air = less downforce.....and no, I'm not looking for a job,

  • Quite an interesting perspective. I have been trying to figure this out since the initial reports of an "overheating rear suspension" affecting the aero. I initially thought it had to be the dampers overheating, resulting in the ride height change, because surely it couldn't be deformation. I wasn't aware that the car could have a hydraulic intermediary between the pullrod/rocker and the actual spring/damper assembly (basically a "hydraulic link"). If that's the case, using a hydraulic system to transfer the force between the suspension pullrod/rocker and the spring/damper, then it makes sense that a temperature difference could cause problems with the ride height, especially if the hydraulic volume is small. Basically the fluid expands too much and "lengthens" the hydraulic link from pullrod/rocker to spring/damper, which changes the ride height. Am I in the ballpark?

  • What is it that’s actually getting too hot? The hydraulic fluid? The arms and linkage themselves, and when doing so expand and contract, causing geometry changes? Are there springs used? Are they metal? I’d think the springs would be carbon fiber?

  • Honestly this would be a clinical factor that could explain so many situations Haas has experienced through the years. From sudden failures of components to drivers not being able to retain their cool through the race weekend. Unpredictability in any sport is not necessarily bad. BUT constantly having to adapt to the same car wouldn't make life inside and outside the cockpit much easier. Especially if you're trying to solve a problem with the setup. Terrific eyeopener in my book!

    • In the 80's and 90's back of the pack cars were literally not only failing to qualify under the 107% rule, but failing to even PRE-qualify. The perceived disparity is at the front, because Ferrari can't use their massive "legacy" subsidy to good effect (within the regulations, at least) and because Mercedes just has excellent personnel in all the key positions and excellent team culture.

  • The hydraulic cylinders probably have a different type of metal cylinder then the piston inside of it. The piston is expanding bigger than the cylinder in the heat, therefore it's sticking and binding, causing the ride height to be erratic.

    Bass MechanicBass Mechanic21 hari yang lalu
    • If there is a hydraulic medium/mechanism between the pullrod and the actual spring/damper assembly, simply excess expansion of a warmed fluid could be enough to change the ride height (by changing the volume of the intermediate "connection" so to speak).

      jsquared1013jsquared101320 hari yang lalu
  • the problem with the HAAS team is that the owner doesn't care about the F1 team. While I understand that F1 is basically a glorified advertisement for all team owners involved, it seems the owner of HAAS could give less a fuck about racing, or doing what needs to be done to actually win, and just cares about the attention it gives his company. Im always rooting for HAAS, being a yankee. It would be nice to see Gene give a shit enough to work through the problems, instead of threaten to end the team.

  • Suspension is usually close to the engine, maybe the heat is changing the viscosity of the shock fluid, could be down to the type of fluid or how the valves in the piston heads are set up.

  • Doesn't make all that sense, he says the problem is not heating, but when it cools down after not moving. Would the problem then not be there at all during the race? Because it stays hot and at the same height?

  • I'd try using a diversion of the hot exhaust gases to periodically heat up the suspension on a regulated controller. That way the suspension will still be hot, but at least it will be a consistent temperature. There, problem solved.

    ZPEROZPERO25 hari yang lalu
  • The only reason heat would make suspension change is either 'air' spring or fluid boil. I'm a motorcycle tech and hydrualic clutches have had the issue for long enough that most returned to wire operated (Bowden cable) if it wasn't possible to re-rout away from hot engine parts. Maybe a return to low tech solution would work better than an engineers ego stipulating hydraulic actuation?

    • @1crazypj ???? jeezuss. are you a dimwit or a troll. the theory is that the problem lies in the CONTROL SYSTEM. NOT expanding components.

      David DavidsDavid Davids23 hari yang lalu
    • @David Davids Yes, but, the majority of components won't have expansion high enough to matter. (a 12" aluminium bar would 'grow' by about seventy four thousandths of an inch with a 500 degree f temperature rise-almost 2mm would be significant) Titanium about half as much (I don't know expansion of Carbon fiber?) I very much doubt there are aluminium components in modern F1 suspension. Torsion bars won't matter if they expand lengthwise so it has to be something fundamentally wrong with design parameters as adding up multiple shorter components would not give a dramatic change in rear ride height. Expansion of the gearbox housing or crankcase (whereever suspension mounting points are?) could easily have more of an effect as it would be moving suspension arms further apart and changing contact angle of tyres when things get hot

      1crazypj1crazypj23 hari yang lalu
    • @1crazypj ahem. have you understood what was actually said in the video. the prevailing theory is that, the Location of suspension control components in a too-hot environment is the cause of temperature-related changes, in the car's stance. cheers d

      David DavidsDavid Davids23 hari yang lalu
    • @David Davids Heat is making whatever they use for suspension expand or maybe hydraulic fluid is boiling and the gas is over pressuring something? (even the 'best' fluids I know about will boil at around 600f degrees) There may well be 'better' materials for F1 but I don't have access to them They may be using torsion bar suspension with a high pressure gas 'spring' as an addition? (or an air spring with onboard compressor to 'bend' the rules? Without knowing more about the system I can only speculate I'm sure they could find a way to use carbon nanotube 'wires' plus cams to get the same effect, be lighter and without any heat issues. Big 'plus' they would also get to 'play' with incredibly expensive 'future technology' which should satisfy any engineer at Ferrari's ego. Don't forget, a lot of design engineers have made things real difficult for techs over the years just to prove 'how smart' they are (Japanese engineers in particular were real A** H***** at one time, ("you not ride our motorcycle properly", etc. ???????) They just didn't understand the US market (or most markets outside Japan)
