    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

    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.
