Applicants believe that it is unacceptable to force citizens to the conclusion of the insurance contract.

Last year the BMW mechanics managed to reach the milestone of 19000 rpm According to recent reports, that mark has already reached and engineers of Mercedes, Ferrari and Honda. According to Mario Thiessen, head of BMW Motorsport, further progress in this direction will slow down, because the focus now will be on reliability - indeed, in 2004, only one engine is required to use during the race weekend.I am sure that in Formula 1 mark 19000 rpm will go many.
