How Alonso's Strange Steering Won Two F1 Titles

    Fernando Alonso had a really weird steering technique during the 2005 and 2006 F1 season. He'd shock the Renault F1 car into understeer with a rapid steering input, a technique which had not been seen before in Formula One.

    No one else on the grid was doing it, no one had previously driven in this way and no one has done it since. So what was this strange driving technique, why was Alonso using it and how did it make him faster? All of that, coming up in this video.
    Watch the steering wheel of Alonso’s car and notice how aggressively he’s turning into the corners. A traditional style for steering input in F1, or any other type of racing, would be to introduce the car into the corner to prepare the car to turn.
    Typically, the best style for initial steering input is to allow the car to roll over and the tyre to flex, until both are supported. This allows a driver to maintain the highest amount of grip in the tyre and car, ultimately meaning higher cornering speeds and a lower lap time.
    This is why you’ll see F1 drivers creeping on to an entry kerb before a fast corner - this allows them to start the turn a fraction earlier, with less steering angle, giving the car chance to roll over and the tyre to deform before the main load is added.
    But Alonso was causing the front tyres to break traction on purpose, ruining the balance of his Renault F1 car and making the car understeer at the corner entry.

I remember wondering why he was so aggressive turning in and thought he just liked a weird amount of turn on his steering box(/rack/erm sorry im not sure what you call it!). Thanks for these videos, maybe in a decade or more you could be the next Brundle when it comes to punditry!? Hope everyone's doing good.

1:10 basically he was doing micro-drifts perfectly calculated to regain grip at a velocity vector to fluently and quickly continue. I can respect that. I can respect that very easily. Drifting in an F1 car and beating others thanks to that. I can respect that very much.

3:24 large slip angle you mean? Angles are not high or low unless you mean vertical ones I guess.

See he’s doing what’s called the maximum slip angle. Despite popular belief, 100% traction isn’t the fastest way around a corner. Drifting is the slowest way around a corner. But the maximum slip angle is where your tires are about to stop gripping, but they don’t because you are at the balance of grip and slip. When you slip, your car rotates and starts going sideways, but when you grip, you are going at a progressive rotation. Let’s say at the apex, grip driving will have you hit the apex at about 45*, but when you hit the maximum slip angle, you are gripping at the max, meaning you’d be at about 50* rotated at the apex. Essentially Alonso was using the maximum slip angle and the loss of front grip to rotate the car faster and therefore get on the gas earlier. Alonso was special in that he knows the absolute limit of his tires at ALL times, and as such he knew exactly what to do in each corner. This was explained to some degree in the video.

Any time some racer does something "uncharacteristic" in turns, it's 10/10 times drifting. I literally hit play and was like is he gonna drift? is he gonna drift. IS HE GONNA DRIFT?! *less than 2 minutes in* "he was basically drifting"

Get the work done early. Turn in late and hard so that the only thing left to do is start opening the wheel. If you can be full throttle before the apex at any corner, at any track, on every lap... it will always pay off if you can start opening the wheel before the apex. Also the tire gets an initial overload of wear and stress... but it gets relieved of stress earlier and progressively relieved of stress at a constant pace. This objective will also achieve a higher top speed before the next braking zone. I’m not surprised by Alonso’s technique here. I’m surprised it’s a secret.

@Driver61 To me it seems more that his steering has another relation to the wheels. So he has to do a bigger angle on the wheel to get the same result as others. So I guess that the result on the wheels is the same, but he like to have a bigger angle on the steering wheel.

I am no Alonso but this is the same way that I would drive my Historic Group N Mini when I did a lot of circuit racing. The Mini was front wheel drive and made only 120 horses but it allowed me to effectively load the suspension, wash speed off and once the tyres got grip, nailing the throttle and exiting the corner. One weekend at Oran Park ( now extinct) in Sydney, was particularly tough on tyres, I destroyed a new set of Hoosiers in the Friday practice session.!!

His driving style is so “horrible” you say, but he’s the F1 champ and you make YouTube videos. And he’s been fast in ever series he’s entered and if Ferrari built a better car he’d be a 5 time champ. Has made horrible career decisions? Yes. “Horrible” driving style? Hell no
