Piquet’s Telemetry from Singapore 2008

What Happens When Everything Seems to be Lining Up

8:56am EST — Tuesday, The Guardian published the telemetry used by the FIA Technical Department to investigate Nelson Piquet, Jr.’s crash on lap 14 at Singapore last season.  “Piquet’s telemetry at the exit to turn 17 reveals that he applied throttle earlier than expected which caused his rear wheels to spin. He then eased off the accelerator before reapplying pressure to cause the car to lurch into a spin and hit the wall.”  See the graph at The Guardian site.
