Thought I'd write a short piece about the video that Sauber released yesterday.  A great idea by Sauber that apparently took two years to complete.  The car in question is a BMW Sauber F1.08 so a few years old, however it goes a long way to show the core elements and packaging involved in creating an F1 car.  You can see how tightly packaged the components are with the voids left only for crash/impact protection reasons. As its an 08 car there are no KERS components on the car and refueling was still around in 08 so the fuel tank will be slightly smaller in size than it's modern counterpart.  I'm hoping the team may release so high res images so I can explain aspects of the car more closely.  The 08 season was at the end of a regulation run as you can tell by all of the additional aero elements on the car.  Anyway enough from me, here's the video below:

  1. I had overlooked this article and the video. Really is fascinating. Would love to see it for real. Guess you would too.


Whilst I'm trying to keep atop of the blog you may have noticed of late that there is less content appearing. For those of you that haven't realised, most of my work has now been moved over to where I'm working with Giorgio Piola.

As some of you may have found out already I'm also working with the Missed Apex crew on their podcast from time-to-time, either doing race reviews or dedicated 'Tech Time' shows.

I've embedded the latest version of the podcast below and will update this a frequently as I appear. However, please head over to Itunes if you want it to appear in your player when episodes are available. The show is great to work on and has a great lineup of 'regulars' but has also enticed some bigger names recently too, with Will Buxton and Bradley Philpot on shows during the summer break.
