Stuff happening in the world of F1…..
- After the debate last year about Honda (BAR) using a seamless change gearbox, which was shouted about by the other teams, saying it was basically a CVT (Constantly Variable Transmission) it seems the other teams have jumped on the bandwagon. Williams F1 will be using their version of the same system as soon as possible apparently, with Sam Michaels sayiong he predicts all the other teams to follow suit at some point in the year. Why you ask? well Honda say that they could save in the region of 2 seconds a race on gear shifts alone.
- Team Super Aguri (Honda backed) have come to an agreement with the rest of the teams and the FIA to run this year, and even more importantly they have agreed a tyre supply with Bridgestone.
- Mercedes and MClaren have done another demonstration of the crushing speed an F1 car can attain in this video of a MClaren F1 vs an E55 and an A160.
- Pipass have a nice rundown on the rule changes for this year with Pat Symonds.
And that’s about it for now…..
