Very fast

Just how fast are Formula 1 cars?

In their defence, I must point out that the road cars sound a lot better.

Michael Schumacher World Champion Tower

February 17th, 2009

Coming soon to Dubai: the Michael Schumacher World Champion Tower

LAVA (Laboratory for Visionary Architecture) unveiled the design of the Michael Schumacher World Champion Tower in Dubai, the first project of a series of branded towers, a new concept by PNYG:COMPANY, a company focused on branding. [...]

According to the architects, the design of the 59 storey luxury tower is abstracted from the geometric laws of snowflakes and Formula 1 aerodynamics, in order to obtain an effficient/minimal structure, maximum views and optimal light and air distribution. [...]

Three observations:

  1. Catchy name.
  2. Abstracted from the geometric laws of snowflakes and Formula 1 aerodynamics, eh? I just hope they're taking the Pepsi Gravitational Field into account.
  3. In the next plot along: the Damon Hill Memorial Bungalow.

Commentary

April 2nd, 2008

My favourite comment from the MetaFilter thread about FIA president Max Mosley's embarrassing videotape:

I would SO pay a small amount to watch the unedited video with enthusiastic if inaccurate commentary by Murray Walker.

Not something we'll be seeing in ITV's coverage of the next Formula 1 outing, I'd guess.
