24 Hours in a Life of a Driver .. Oliver Webb

Hey Guys

World Series by Renault posted a Photo Album of "24 Hours in a Life of a Driver" on their Facebook Page. The main character is Oliver Webb. He is a 22 year old british race car driver, driving for Fortec Motors in the Formel Renault 3.5 in 2013.

So, whats the glamorous life of a race car driver like? Waking up late with a few grid girls laying around him in bed, then driving to the circuit do do some rounds and later going to a bar to end the day befitting? No, this Rockstar-Driver Life is history, unfortunately, here more about how it nowadys really is:

Very tired after a bad night sleep! Ready to go!

Time to study some data before heading out onto track

All my gear is ready, time to change and get in the car

Pit stop practice now as it’s between wet and dry now


Car is being put into 'slick set up' for the dry track, mechanics working hard...

...while the engineers… no comment! ;)

Photo time! Cheeeeeese

Time for some healthy lunch and energy for a tough afternoon

Then even more food with the team!

Dry track, set up done, food in the belly… time to hit the track!

All done for the afternoon and now racing to the airport to catch out flight at 7.30pm

Flight caught… just!

Arrived in London for meetings in the morning, beautiful city!

Bed time... bit of data and video studying from the 2 days testing, then sleep! Up early for training and meetings!

ACTIVE BODY CONTROL (ABC)Subfunction of the suspension system MAGIC BODY CONTROL. The Mercedes-Benz ABC suspension has four suspension struts with hydraulic cylinders to set the force individually in each suspension strut, thus all but completely eliminating the lifting, rolling and pitching motion of the vehicle body. Various acceleration sensors send information about the current driving situation to the control unit which, in turn, compares this information with the data received from the pressure sensors in the suspension struts and the level sensors on the axle links. Based on the results of this comparison, the system calculates control signals which are then converted into precisely measured oil flows by servohydraulic values at the front and rear axle.
