Public Displays of Affection

At the race, Horner and Geri shared an awkward hug and kiss, looking tense as they walked along the paddock. Sources close to Geri revealed that Horner initially described the situation as a workplace dispute, which Geri accepted, only to later discover more to the story.

Support Despite Uncertainty

Despite the scandal, Geri appeared in public with Horner, sparking questions about the future of their marriage. Insiders mentioned that while Geri has expressed anger and disappointment in private, she is giving their relationship a chance by showing public support.

Inner Circle Concerns

Friends of Geri expressed concern that she felt like a fool for trusting her husband and that she was heartbroken and humiliated by the scandal. The future of their marriage remains uncertain as Geri contemplates her next steps.

Heartbreak and Meltdown

Upon landing in Bahrain and discovering the extent of the scandal, Geri reportedly went into a "meltdown." Close sources revealed that she felt heartbroken and humiliated by Horner's actions, raising questions about the future of their relationship.

Frequently Asked Questions

Could you explain the role of the Power Unit in a Formula 1 car?

The Power Unit of a Formula 1 vehicle is a combination between an internal combustion motor and electrical systems including the Energy Recovery System. It serves as the primary source of propulsion, where the internal combustion engine provides the base power and is augmented by the ERS for additional performance. The integration of all these components is essential for achieving the best power delivery efficiency, and to comply with regulatory constraints.

How can F1 cockpits improve driver comfort and safety?

F1 cockpits focus on safety and comfort for the driver. Safety is increased by using carbon-fiber composites for survival cells and padding. Seats are custom-molded to each driver’s body, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit. The cockpit dimensions are designed to allow for easy driver extraction. All controls must be within reach of the driver without having to remove their hands from the wheel.

How do F1 Teams simulate car performance prior to actual races?

F1 teams use a range of simulation tools to predict car performance before hitting the track. These include Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for aerodynamic analysis, chassis and suspension modeling, and full-scale wind tunnel testing. Additionally, drivers can use driver in the loop simulators to get feedback and experience virtual circuits. These simulations help teams optimize setups and strategies in preparation for races.


  • The halo device introduced into Formula 1 in 2018 is designed to withstand the equivalent weight of a London double-decker bus.
  • The drag reduction system (DRS) can increase a Formula 1 car’s straight-line speed by approximately 12-15 km/h when activated.
  • Formula 1’s research into sustainable fuel aims to create a 100% sustainable fuel for use in F1 engines by the mid-2020s.
  • Modern Formula 1 car chassis are required to withstand a frontal crash test with a peak deceleration of no more than 25 g.
  • A Formula 1 steering wheel is one of the most complex components of the car, costing up to $50,000 to produce.
  • Since the hybrid power units were introduced in 2014, thermal efficiency has increased from around 29% to surpass 50%, a remarkable figure compared to standard road car engines.
  • Formula 1 engines can rev up to 15,000 RPM, a decrease from the 18,000 RPM limit set prior to the 2014 regulation changes.
  • Formula 1 cars can achieve lateral acceleration in excess of 5 g during cornering, which is about five times the force of gravity.
