Apologies if too specific.
Watched a documentary National Geographic Megafactories Bugatti Veyron
I told an colleague (engineer) about the need to warm the car up and then unleash it on the long stretch to be able to make it to 405km/h and mused that the curve before the straight probably had to be taken at 250km/h to do so. He immediately replied that the G-force of going around a(ny) curve at 250km/h would kill the driver... I find that very hard to believe but do not have the skills nor knowledge to refute it. It would be cool to get him this app http://www.dynolicious.com/ and a trip in a Veyron ;)
Can someone show some math and a graph or so?
I have been looking at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formula_One_car#Lateral_force
Turn 8 at the Istanbul Park circuit, a 190° relatively tight 4-apex corner, in which the cars maintain speeds between 265 and 285 km/h (165 and 177 mph) (in 2006) and experience between 4.5g and 5.5g for 7 seconds—the longest sustained hard cornering in Formula 1.
which supports my claim - but would love some more information on this specific matter
