The V8 engine has been in use in Formula One since 2006 and although the FIA have moved to reduce it's power output over that time period the engines still produced a healthy circa 750bhp.

With the new regulations for 2014 ushering in a new power unit in the form of a V6 Turbo complimented by a reworked Energy Recovery System, Renault decided it was time to unchain the V8 letting their customers Red Bull and Caterham show what they are capable of.  The result a ear and stomach churning trip to their final resting place

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.
