I’m not so sure about that, I was under the impression the 3D printing was the way forwards for prototyping and low volume parts (like say, bits a hypercar you’ll only make 3 of), but worked out to be slow and expensive for anything you need a shitton of (like say, bits for a white-goods commutermobile you cancel in 3 Read more

The high rake was kind of Adrian Newey’s thing, so it doesn’t surprise me that the car would follow the Red Bull in other aspects

I worked for a contract filler, but it was the European operation so no problems with skunks, just people mixing up stock because they couldn’t tell the difference between Benelux and Scandinavia.

Having been invovled in the manufacture, I could have told you it is 2/3 white spirit (mineral oil), 1/3 brown goop that they won’t tell you what they make it from, with carbon dioxide as a propellant. The contents of the brown goop don’t surprise me at all. Read more

I always smile to myself when Google tells me my commute home will be 17 minutes, it has yet to work out that I’ll be waiting 5 minutes for the railway crossing if the trains are running on time.

If this is supposed to be a ride-share, what’s up with those people?  They are making eye-contact, seem to be enjoying each-other’s company and no-one is staring at a phone.  Nice try, but it’s obviously just a mock-up.

My thought exactly.  I’m not a car designer, so forgive me for being wrong about the wheels having to be on the very bottom of the car.

I recall seeing somewhere that someone had cross and ekranoplan with a hovercraft to get around the problems in getting up to speed.  I don’t remember if it was successful but it sounds like a great deal of fun.

In a complete coincidence, I parked next to one of these today.  It looked great and I was slightly jealous.

The “virtual safety car” was implemented to prevent a repeat of Bianchi’s incident, so hopefully we get some exciting but injury-free wet action on the track.

Infiniti has always been the brand I have to remind myself that it exists, in my area of the UK I see Mercs and Beamers aplenty, a smattering of Jags and Lexii, even a Kia Stinger, but Infiniti?  Zero.

Have they stolen the yellow splitter protectors off the Dodge?
