|Video| Take a look at a #F1 Pit Garage (2013)

When you’re a Formula 1 fan, one of the nice things about having uncompetitive teams is that they allow the media more access to their pit garages. That’s just because the cars were so off the pace, there wouldn’t be much information for competing teams that they would want to steal for their cars.

I found a video of what the 2013 Mclaren and 2013 Caterham pit crews were doing on the cars during a Friday night. Both cars were pretty horrible, so we get to see the mechanics actually working on the cars!

|Video| So what did I think of the first @FIAformulaE race?

So the maiden Formula E race was this weekend, and I just had a chance to really look at some of the highlights in detail. (First of all, props to Formula E to actually provide some highlights of their races. Why Formula 1 doesn’t do this is absolutely baffling to me still.)
