about Rial

Rial is a German producer of light alloy wheels and rims, and was a Formula One constructor competing in the 1988 and 1989 seasons. Founded in the 1970s as a wheel rim producer, the company was bought by Günter Schmid, ex-owner of the ATS wheels company in 1987. Schmid followed the same strategy as he had at ATS, advertising the Rial wheel brand by entering Formula One as a constructor. Rial participated in 32 Grands Prix, entering a total of 48 cars. They scored six championship points, finishing a highest of ninth in the constructors championship in 1988. After leaving Formula One at the end of the 1989 season, the Rial Racing division was closed, and the company did not race again. Rial continues to manufacture wheels and rims from its factory in Fußgönheim.

As Motorsport.com’s exclusive images show, the idea has been incorporated at Turn 12 - the second part of the Hans Ernst chicane.

In the wake of Max Verstappen's booming popularity, Formula 1 returned to Zandvoort last year for the first time since 1985.
As part of the revamp to accommodate F1, Zandvoort's final turn – the sweeping Arie Luyendyk Bocht – received an 18-degree banking to increase cornering speeds.
Originally Zandvoort's second DRS zone was planned to start before the flat-out right-hander to boost ...

The experiment was the first in the sport since 2000, when a camera was used on the Arrows of Pedro de la Rosa at the Belgian GP.
On that occasion it was mounted above the pedals, and to the side, with the movement of de la Rosa’s feet in clear view.
At Silverstone, in contrast, the camera was in the bottom of the footwell next to the steering column, pointing at the underside of the ...

F1 has not installed a camera in the footwell of a car since the Belgian Grand Prix in 2000 when it was placed in the Arrows of Pedro de la Rosa, but the technology has roots dating back to 1993, when it was used on Ukyo Katayama's Tyrrell.
As part of F1's continued evaluation of new broadcast technology and techniques, first practice at Silverstone on Friday will see pedal cam return, fitted ...

The German car manufacturer is struggling to dial out the bouncing of its W13 that is holding back both Lewis Hamilton and George Russell.
The problem is forcing the team to run the car much higher than it was designed for, and that is costing it valuable lap time.
Mercedes is convinced that if it can adapt the car to not bounce as much when run lower, then that will unleash an uptick ...

After running effectively the same weekend format since knockout qualifying was introduced in 2006 - with the exception of elimination qualifying's two-race stint in 2016, and the two-day weekend at Imola last year - F1 is finally on the cusp of a major change in approach.
It marks the culmination of years of discussions over possible format changes. F1 pushed for the introduction of a reverse ...

The Spa-Francorchamps is traditionally one of the lower-downforce circuits of the year, only eclipsed by Monza, which often requires a bespoke aerodynamics package to make the most of the car down the litany of straights.
Spa, however, has a few more lower-speed sections, requiring a little more downforce than Monza throughout the lap.
This means that aero packages for the circuit nestled ...

The team brought a modified floor and front and rear wings for the British GP, aimed in part at improving performance in slower speed corners.
Hot track temperatures and gusty winds made it hard to gather accurate data on the new parts. However, Seidl said the overall verdict was that they made a difference. Sainz was sixth in FP2, although he was flattered by the red flag that spoiled the soft ...
