  • F1 needs to give their head a shake! The body work is ridiculous. Scrap downforce, go back to mechanical grip, lots of horsepower, no launch control and go racing.

  • Good video. There seems to be less and less technical analysis in F1 media these days. Please keep it coming! One piece of constructive criticism if I may. Please be careful of using colours alone to differentiate elements in diagrams. Those of us who are colour blind can really struggle with this. You could use different styles of dotted lines along with colours for example or at least stick with highly contrasting colours. There are different forms of colour blindness but personally, I found that the green and yellow lines used to show the Red Bull rear suspension really problematic. They look almost identical to my eyes. I know, those of you who are not colour blind will find that hard to believe but I'm sure that others with colour blindness will agree with me. FYI: In case you're wondering, colour blindness affects about 8% of men and 0.5% of women.

  • These pre-season tests mean nothing to the upcoming season, the whole car is set up for a variety of different reasons, fuel loads are different, engine modes are different, gear ratios, aerodynamics plus many other components are tested.. I have never once looked at the testing times as a marker for the new season, the last eight years has seen Mercedes dominant and won the championship, driver and constructors, yet in each pre-season they have not produced spectacular times in pre-season and so many F1 fans fall into the same trap that Mercedes will not dominant. Mercedes do not have to push to produce the fastest testing times, the other teams will including Red Bull and its done so Mercedes will take notice, its all tactics. Yet come the first race we might see a different car win the race this happens quite a lot, but then the likes of the Mercs change something and they go on to dominant. Pre-season testing is to iron out issues that could potentially be a problem, Mercedes are masters at doing this, yet the other teams are working on raw speed, why? again to show they can compete, but little changes will be made. I do expect a tougher challenge this season from Red Bull and possibly McLaren in third but I can't see anything stopping the Mercs and Sir Lewis from getting that 8th world title.

The visual brilliance of the technical analysis and breakdown, stuff you can't even get on SkyF1, is ace. It's simply fabulous and it's what's been missing as a middleman (so to speak) between the fans (both casual and hardcore) and the sport itself, sorely missing in the past. Very thankful for you guys!
