    Are the majority of the mechanics all british?

    They are but that's changing. As Paddy says, more engineers are coming to Motorsport Valley from other parts of Europe and further afield. But his point wasn't about the individuals, it was the culture and approach in the running of the team. I was careful in the headline to talk about British-based talent... not British talent. It's not the engineer's passport that matters, it's the environment their talents are placed in. The history of F1 has seen successful individuals come from very different parts of the world, from Brazil to Finland, Italy to New Zealand, and all points inbetween - F1 is undeniably global. In theory, an F1 team could set up anywhere. In Europe, North America, Asia there are superb facilities and the cash to bring in the best talent. But it seems there's something about the green fields of central England.
