Well, with this post I'll release my own idea, where I had at the same time to share it in this thread and discuss about other innovations to melt hopefully an amount of all the ideas into 1 single project, just like we'd in mind with the VGT, but faster and more basic, as a training/internship for the VGT in the longer future, but now to think and share are thoughts about this topic is big again after the fatal crash of Justin Wilson. Temporary Protection Unit The most of us know the change F1 was going through in 1995 & 1996 according the death of Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberg in 1994, the drivers position was more protected by the higher 'shoulders' paralell to their shoulders and heads. I don't know the right word, but I call them shoulders, meaning these upstanding and detachable body parts above the sidepods. I think there could be a system that uses these shoulders for an 'invissible' look and when the occasion arrives, they could collapse to eachother where a cocon would be created with double hinged arms, positioned just aside the drivers head and arms. At the end of these arms there is some sort of 1/4 elipsed bow (kind off profile that a closed cockpit should have) that would connect them together. When the two 1/2 cockpit-ish parts are rised in a second, they are forming a unit of 5 or 6 piles of protection for the driver. This all engineered with hydraulics and such, whatever the solution will be, it's allways disadvantage for the weight of the cars. The activation is very simple (I think). When a driver is goining of track, the automatic yellow flag warning system is activated and for everybody to be seen there's someone of track. It isn't necessary to activate this system by every yellow flag system, but only if there are certain high speeds and/or high G-forces measured by the drivers car and gps. The driver who's getting off track to fast or with to many G's, will be automatically activated the system and all of his fellow drivers directly behind him, because that what's happened to Surtees, Bianchi and now Wilson. A driver is also free to activate this protection system, like in indycars, it's a split second and you can't trust the automatic release and drivers of single seaters have mostly a perfect hand-eye-reaction to be faster than the automatic activation itselfs. Sadly no time this week to draw something out in Sketchup or Rhino, hopefully the idea is clear enough to understand?
