The Reason behind banning Refueling In F1

F1 has banned refueling of tanks since 2010. Then, to reduce the cost as well as increase safety, the FIA decided to ban it. Therefore, F1 On racing cars will follow the latest regulations that will improve racing with a full fuel tank.According to Haas F1 Team driver Romain Grosjean, a restoration of the refueling system can be very beneficial for an F1. You will have the opportunity to solve and troubleshoot GPDA.He said, "Yes, we want it." "Not because we think it's great for racing, but because we need to reduce the weight of the car to help Pirelli." It is a temporary solution to make the car 70kg lighter or 60kg lighter. It is one of the reasons why we can feel excessive car fever like crazy. "Additionally, he highlighted the benefits of reintroducing the base. He said, "Yes. The tire will help, which is a big weakness."Also, there are many other theories for different drivers. Most of them saw the era of refueling and subsidizing automobile refueling.According to runners' opinions, running with a light car is safer and more convenient. Thus, it makes racing more comfortable, while also reducing the risk factor, in one aspect of the tire dramas.What stopped the F1 refueling decision?Many suggested a meeting on the F1 strategy group. Also, in 2017, in order to ensure the display is optimized and rendered. After that, not all of the ideas reached the desired destination.In the debate over ethnic refueling, the positives and negatives have arisen. The argument in favor of refueling did not outnumber those who opposed it.It would be impossible to dispute the fact that the cost and the safety of faults. However, it would be very difficult to say that refueling is not going to make the cars faster either. The lighter car is faster to start the race. Cabins with 50kg of fuel will be faster than those with starting at 100kg.Based on the current maximum allowed. It wouldn't make much of a difference if the lighter load allowed the driver to push their tires a little harder to set half a second per lap.From a driver's point of view, they would like a faster speed, but they are not the ones who watch the races, so there is not much difference between those who watch. It would be incredibly unfair to attribute the recent spike in movements solely to the refueling ban. The arrival of three new teams in 2010 took a toll on the numbers, while the Pirelli designed to smash tires and DRS (Traction Reduction System) arrived in 2011 and turned the whole sport around.But it would also be wrong to say that refueling did not have a negative effect on overtaking. Statistics can paint a misleading picture, but it is rare that such a large amount of data does not provide a true overall trend, and the view that refueling hurts bypassing is supported by a number of highly experienced VIPs. Inside F1.Formula One needs to attract new fans and from now on the focus is on making a bigger impact in closed-circuit racing with more competition across the field and pockets of action. This idea of banning refueling was also to create opportunities for teams in difficulty. Also, to avoid danger to the pit crew members and the passengers in the cockpit as well.Also Read: Top Opening Partnerships in Test Cricket

Spanish League: Jordi Alba leads Barcelona to 2-1 comeback win over Real Sociedad

Barcelona defender Jordi Alba scored another goal to make a 2-1 comeback at Real Sociedad, depriving the Basque country of the top of the Spanish League on Wednesday.Alba canceled Luilian Jose's first goal with a kick in the 32nd minute. The left-back helped the home side advance one minute before half-time when he sent across to Frenkie de Jong to score.The result changed the standings of Sociedad, Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid, all tied at the top of the table and only the goal difference separated them. Atletico is now in first, Sociedad in second, and Madrid in third.Barcelona's victory increased their chances of joining the title race. Lionel Messi's team moved up to fifth, six points behind the leaders. Atletico has three outstanding matches, Barcelona two and Madrid one, as far as the association is concerned."I think this was the best game for us this season," Alba said. "It's difficult to play without fans (due to COVID-19 restrictions), but playing against a great team was more than enough motivation. Our position tonight was great. We saw Barcelona fight for every ball as if it was the last."While contributing as Barcelona's main playmaker, Messi was unable to seriously threaten to score and twice failed to find teammates promising counter-attacks.His fellow strikers Antoine Griezmann and Martin Braithwaite also lost the final touch.However, the team maintained intense pressure on defense on the field and moved the ball quickly in attack to continue creating opportunities.“Our team's behavior was very good, especially when we didn't have the ball.” Barcelona coach Ronald Koeman said, “The team has taken a giant step forward in pressing to regain control.” This is the game we want to play. This is the team I want to see. Every player took his turn. "Koeman may also have found a new combination of central defense with Gerard Pique injured. Coman gave rest to the heart of Clement Lenglet's defense and chose to form an inexperienced midfield with Ronald Araujo and Oscar Mingus. They both performed well against one of the fastest and most talented attacks in the league.His only mistake came late in the match when Mengoiza failed to intercept a long ball from substitute striker Alexandre Isaacs, but Pedro "Pedri" Gonzalez ran to block his shot before hitting the post. Pedri was substituted after the heavy blow but left the field.The community was without David Silva and the main target, Mikel Uyarzabal, both of whom had minor injuries.However, with Spanish midfielder Mikel Merino leading his attack, Sociedad still has enough talent to deploy a catchy attack that makes him a potential contender for the title.Willian Jose finished a free-kick to open the scoring at 28. Robin Law Norman brought Portuguese Christian "Porto" to the area, squaring the ball for the Brazilian striker to touch the goal.Alba responded with a precise right-footed shot after Pedri redirected a pass from Griezmann near the edge of the area.Barcelona continued to press for the lead that Alba climbed when he sent a low cross that hit the defender slightly before hitting De Jong.La Sociedad recovered late and forced Barcelona to rely on Marc-Andre ter Stegen to protect his favor. The German crouched to enter back-to-back and repel Willian Jose and Issac five minutes before the end."It has been a long time since we saw Barcelona playing with this level of aggressiveness, and this speaks of the respect they have for us," said Emanuel El Guile, the association's coach. "We weren't as clinical as we should be. We have to shift our chances."COPA DEL REYValencia needed extra time to beat Terrassa 4-2 in the first round of the Copa del Rey with first-division teams.Atletico Madrid, Villarreal, Levante, Alaves and Elche scored comfortable victories.Also Read: BRAZIL BEATS URUGUAY 2-0 TO STAY TOP OF QUALIFYING GROUP
