    I don't know if anybody have seen this video. But is interesting to watch. I gives some insight in the stuff that the girls and boys in Stuttgart found to make this Mercedes so fast

  2. thats awesome.

    Maybe explains why hamilton was complaining about his seat being really hot
     
  3. I absolutely love turbo technology and fuel management.
    I can't get enough of that stuff.
    It was a great idea to split them.
    It seems like such a small thing but the benefits are huge.
    With that compressor further away from the turbine, the tendency to 'heat soak' is vastly reduced.
    Those T-wheels get darn hot.
    In most standard applications it's not uncommon to see bearing cavity temperatures close to 1100 degree.

    Yeah Yeah I know Mercedes F1 is in Midlands but the home company is in Stuttgart. What I love about this video that it shows that a change In the engine setup has such a huge effect on other aspects as well.
