Davide Brivio, Sports Director Alpine, He is in awe of the importance of radio in F1 racing
Davide Brivio He is the most suitable person to compare MotoGP and F1.Used to be Joan Mir (2020 champion) and Suzuki (ÁlexRins) at Suzuki, Now serving as sports director Alpine, Here you will find that nothing compares Fernando Alonso.
The Italian said that the main difference between the two world championships in racing is… the radio. In the “Big Circus”, it is essential to do the job well. “This may be an interesting thing, but the biggest difference is the radio.You keep in touch with the driver, and the racing engineer tells them to do this, do that, wait a moment. In MotoGP, once the race starts, the rider is alone. All you have to do is sit and watch TV and that is all you can do. Here, you always keep in touch. You are about to get in the car. In Bahrain, I have experienced it. At first, I said “wow” to myself, one hour and 45 minutes would be very long, but it happened very quickly because you are busy listening, reviewing and analyzing, so it is very interesting. “, he added a statement collected by “Motorsport”.
Brivio admits that from his point of view, this factor makes F1 racing very exciting. In MotoGP, the driver can read the text messages sent from the box through the machine’s “instrument panel” (digital screen), but in the “big circus” conversations can be carried out. “I think you are an important part of what is happening on the track. You not only enjoy it here.You like it, but you don’t like bystanders. So broadcasting is the biggest difference, but it is both fun and exciting,” he admitted.
On the other hand, there are “Many similarities” Between the two categories. At least that was Brivio’s idea. “What I want to say is that motorcyclists are the same as motorcyclists: when it comes to power, when it comes to adaptation, when they complain and are unhappy, when they feel uncomfortable… you have to stay motivated , So they want to improve themselves, so there are many similarities. Maybe the only difference is the technology, which is more complicated. The car is bigger, it has more parts, more information and content that can be measured, so much content needs to be analyzed and checked. It is very interesting and I am very happy to participate in this competition,” the Alpine boss added.
Finally, he revealed why he embarked on this new adventure. “I am not an engineer, but I can really appreciate technology.It’s funny, that’s one of the reasons I decided to join, Because I can’t get everything on TV or when you’re a guest. “
