    LE= Leading Edge of the wing, TE=Trailing Edge of the wing. Don't know rohacell but assume he means it's weak and isn't load bearing. In other news: http://wtf1.co.uk/maldonado-forgets-how-to-drive-an-f1-car-during-china-free-practice-sessions/ Is Maldonado the worst F1 driver ever to win a...

    2014 Formula 1 Season Thread

    From the explanation I've heard the concept of "optimal" ratios only arises cause the torque power curves have a maximum value at a certain RPM. But because of the fuel flow limits in place, those curves now look really weird and plateau off instead of having a single maximum value. So you can...

    I wonder how much of the Merc-engined speed advantage is down to them being out phase with the rest of the guys (i.e. they are already working on set up etc because their engine is sorted while the others are still just getting mileage to fix engine issues)...I mean there is no way Merc has 1...

    Aerospace actually. Always thought I would end up doing aero for F1 but then when had more experience with aero and talked to people doing it in F1 it quickly became clear it's not for me, too "small" if you know what I mean. It's gotten to the point where a senior aero designer in his 40s...

    Cheers, no I'm barely involved at all, I just drive the car from time to time cause I'm a karter. FStudent is run really badly here and I didn't want to get myself involved in the shitstorm. The fact that all that effort, etc ends up in a car that's very complicated but still slower than a go...

    Cambridge University in the UK. It's always hard to know exactly before you start, but from what they told me in the interview it will be developing tools for automating strategic decisions, then using them on weekends in Mission Control during the races, and doing competitor analysis and...

    Some German journalist just tweeted this: "For the record: #Porsche spokesman at Silverstone officially denies Mark Webber having done a five year deal with them. " So don't know what to believe.

    Yeah it's completely unconfirmed. Radio Le Mans is reporting it, saying with regards to confirmation "working on that but credible independent sources. Great news if confirmed. His skills will be appreciated here!"

    Apparently Mark Webber has signed a 5 year deal to race sportscars with Porsche from next year. So this is it then, he's called it a day.

    Should be interesting with the Mercedes guys I reckon cause they are both very, very good at this track. Hope the tyre wear isn't so bad that everyone's cruising...I say Mercedes will win it, but I honestly have no idea which driver. Lewis is quicker but loves to eat his tyres up when they're...
