A little matter of time!!!

August 17, 2018

Well I was watching the European championships the past week or so, and it got me wondering....

 

Why is F1 (formula 1 racing) measured in the 1000th of a second, when, what is the likelihood of 2 cars ever finishing the race that closely,

 

Yet athletics is only measured in the 100th of a second, despite the fact that people can only run so fast, so you often get shared times.

 

Yes usually they usually do measure it BEHIND THE SCENES to the 1000th of a second to split the 2, but it should be onscreen so we know the people ain't being screwed out of a potential medal...

 

This seems a little bit odd to me, being a former athlete (and hater of F1)

 

Anyway, that is all, jus a little niggle I thought I'd share with you, do you agree/disagree? whats your opinion on sports timings? should there be a standard time index?
