Det här låter ju som påhittat. Och kanske är det.. Men enligt Red Bull så var Mark Webbers problem i Singapore, han fick ju bryta loppet, att statisk elektricitet från en spårvagn under racebanan pajade hans växellåda. Så här säger Christian Horner till autosport;
“At Turn 13 the gearbox selected two gears at once. The moog valve controlling the gearshift had been triggered into changing to seventh while he was still in fifth.
“Yet after interrogating the software we can see that it at no time was allowing for this. We can see a momentary electrical surge at the precise moment, which seems to have triggered the moog valve.
“It was exactly what [Toro Rosso] suffered from with Bourdais in Friday practice, at exactly the same place. A tram line runs beneath the track at that corner and it seems as if static from a passing tram at the very moment Mark was in the corner passed through the ground.”
Som sagt.. låter ju påhittat.. eller fantastisk?
