Hey there.

I'm glad to see this place still running, albeit a lot more slowly.

I have a little update for you guys. I finished my bachelors in mechanical engineering. I got really addicted to League of Legends for my first couple of years of uni (and didn't do well at all). I got to do a long internship with a company that makes bearings for the automotive and aerospace industries. I met the love of my life. For my last year back at school I did a neat project with Honda to make them a vibration machine for one of their plants in Ontario... under budget and ahead of schedule. Today I started my job as a product designer. I finally feel like a big kid.

that's great man. that's the kind of work I do. I get to design prototypes and fixtures and use a 3D printer all the time. You're going to love being an engineer. It's very rewarding. I'm starting a new position as well next week. I hope you have as much fun as I do.

What design software do you use? I was on pro/e / creo for over a decade. I'm using solid edge now.

The company I work for uses Creo 2.0... I've started watching tutorials for it today. All my CAD experience was either done in Solidworks or Inventor up until now.

Congrats on the new position. Hopefully you get to have a lot more fun with it.

There's little place in the heart of downtown called Cousin Vinny's....  sleazy place, cheap pizza, open all night so the drunks can get some food.

Best pizza though.

Yo handy what are some good animes to watch dis season?  So far I've got Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei and Bokura Wa Minna Kawaisou on my weekly 'To Watch' list.  I hear Seikoku no Dragonar is hella ecchi so I'll deff check that out ( I need another Highschool DxD kinda show in my life ).

Also, I've taken it upon myself to learn Japanese so I'll probably be fluent in like a day.  Watch out.

What are poles?  Is it when each driver takes to the track one at a time to see who can have the fastest track time and then that is what is used to place the drivers on the grid for the main race?

Ye I read all about Redbull using a faulty sensor in Ricciardo's car.

What are the different tournaments?  The drivers tournament trophy or whatever goes to the driver with the most points at the end?  The constructors chamipionship trophy to the team with the most points at the end?

Also, the Mercedes, McLaren and and Williams are using an engine developed by Mercedes-Benz, the PU106A Hybrid.  This is the engine being used in these 6 (two cars for each of these 3 teams) formula cars. 

I want to know if Mercedes is allowed to use the PU106A engine in their upcoming road cars?  Would Mercedes have to scale down the power output of this engine (running at 600HP without the MGUs) if they want to use it their next S-Class?

Also, when can we start to see these super cool motor generators in cars?

How about all of the technical stuff though...

For example, why does each car only get 5 of each item in the power unit for 19 races.  They get 5 engines, 5 MGU-Ks, 5 MGU-Hs, 5 energy stores, 5 control electronics, and 5 turbochargers.  I believe they are also limited in the amount of tires they are allowed to use.  Is this to test the reliability of the parts in the cars or is this just something arbitrary the head honcho came up with?

When it comes to the DRS (Drag Reduction System), why is it only allowed to be used on certain areas of the track? 

In the most recent Australian GP, right from the start, before the first turn, one driver, Kobayashi, lost control of his car and took out another driver, Massa, from the race.  Does Massa get any kind of compensation for someone else's mistake or is it just his tough luck?  Does the team of Kobayashi have to pay the team of Massa for damages? 

The last Grand Prix is in Abu Dhabi.  Is this just another race to get points, or is this considered the championship race?  If this sin;t the championship race, is there one or is the champion based on who has accrued the most circuit point over 19 races?

Going back to the Kobayashi incident, he will probably getting penalty points tacked on to his license.  What does this mean at the end of the season?  Say he end up with 52 points after Abu Dhabi and over the course of the 19 races he has 3 penalty points.  Does his total point count become 49 or what?

Why does each team get to race two cars?  Why is there a third driver on each team, the test driver? 

Let's look at the Mercedes team.  There are two main drivers, Rosberg and Hamilton.  They are both running in the same car, the W05.  Is Rosberg's car tuned and set up a little differently than Hamilton's to suit his needs, whatever those may be?

Speaking of the needs of drivers, what are the different racing styles?  Which driving styles have historically been better than others?  have there been any truly reckless drivers?

Why is Lotus considered the one of the worst teams right now?  What's wrong with Ferrari?

Why are there only 3 different types of engines (Mercedes, Renault, Ferrari) being used by 11 teams?  Do some teams let other teams use their chassis designs?  Aero designs?  For example, could Force India make a car using a chassis and engine made by Mercedes, or does force India have to produce their own chassis?  Are engines the only components of the vehicle that are allowed to be 'shared'?

These are just some of the things that I'm curious about.  If there's something cool and special that you want to share about the sport then let me know.

After I joined my school's Formula SAE team, I soon found out about the type of work that goes into building a race car from almost scratch.  I only wanted to get some experience in designing and working in teams, I didn't really care for the sport.

But then I decided to watch this past Australian Grand Prix after hearing about the changes teams have had to make to their power units for this season.  I was interested at how a Formula car - which is supposed to be the pinnacle of racing - would do with a small, turbocharged V6 engine (also helping out are two motor generators) compared to the past Formulas running V12s to V8s.  So I gave the race a watch and it was amazing watching the amount of strategy that is involved in driving in circles.  The only problem is that I had almost no idea what was going.  Someone explain Formula 1 to me.
