So, how does an F1 car work, anyway?
Well, the mechanics at Team Sauber decided to, in their free time, cut one in half. As you do. The bit that really got me was precisely how the driver sits. I knew his butt was only a centimetre off the tarmac, but I’d never realised quite how much their legs are lifted.
Meanwhile, seven races in, Aussie Mark Webber is in a reasonably comfortable fourth after a slightly disappointing seventh place finish in yesterday’s Canadian GP. Seven different winners out of seven different races which, if you’re not familiar with F1, is unprecedented. The cars this year are within tenths, hundreds, even thousandths of a second from each other.
Tell ya what but, with the race starting at 3am local time over here, my eyes are about to fall out of their skull.
