Lamborghini Aventador J: The Making Of
The Lamborghini Aventador J is an absolute one-off: a one-of-a-kind piece of art. It combines the overwhelming performance of the Lamborghini Aventador with the most intense experience of power and dynamics imaginable in an automobile. The Lamborghini Aventador J is a radically open automobile -- exterior and interior meld into each other. The designers and engineers in Sant'Agata Bolognese have not only dispensed entirely with the roof, but also with the front windshield. Drivers must have the right equipment for driving at top speeds higher than 300 km/h.
Formula One 2012: The Australian Grand Prix from a Tyre Point of view
Pirelli enters its second season of Formula One as exclusive tyre supplier with the entire range of tyres renewed compared to the previous year. This has been in response to new aerodynamic and technical regulations, which have had a profound impact on car design. Blown diffusers are now forbidden, with the Exhaust outlets now having to exit the car higher and pushing the centre of pressure forwards. Previously the blown diffusers used to give improved grip at the rear of the car, even when the driver was off the throttle. This alters the fundamental balance of the car, and also affects the tyres along with the way that they are used. The aerodynamics now work on the car in a different way, redistributing the forces that are acting on the tyres and altering the driver's feeling. Many of the cars also now have a stepped nose. A greater proportion of force on the front axle means that there is better turn-in and superior driving precision in corners, as well as improved medium-speed to high-speed direction changes. But with the forces moving more towards the front of the car, a weaker rear end means that the rear tyres have to work even harder to avoid sliding through corners, as well as combatting wheelspin under acceleration.

L'abolizione del soffiaggio caldo nei diffusori, che non possono più puntare sul fondo della vettura, ha ridotto il grip nella parte posteriore delle monoposto alterandone l'equilibrio complessivo, con una ricaduta anche sugli pneumatici e sul modo in cui vengono utilizzati. L'assetto aerodinamico delle vetture è, infatti, diverso rispetto allo scorso anno, con una differente ridistribuzione delle forze che agiscono sugli pneumatici e che modificano la sensazione di guida del pilota. Per rispondere a questi cambiamenti, molti Team hanno sviluppato monoposto con un musetto a gradino.
