There’s no rest for the weary in the Formula One world when it comes down to chassis design for their 2014 cars, to comply with the new regulations.
Dell, a partner with the Caterham F1 Team, released this brief video where the team’s performance director, John Iley, discusses just how much these regulation changes are consuming every department of the team — and why just producing a car that complies with the new rules is a huge feat in itself.
Caterham finished 11th and last in the Constructor’s Championship in 2013, behind fellow new-for-2010 team Marussia. Neither has yet scored a World Championship point in four seasons, and Jules Bianchi for Marussia is the only confirmed driver for either team in 2014.

He was a spectator (with racing legend Mario Andretti) at four-time champion Jeff Gordon’s final Cup race as a full-time in the 2015 season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. In 2011, Hamilton swapped cars with three-time champion Tony Stewart at Watkins Glen International.
Having rubbed shoulders with other racing greats so often, it only would be fitting if Hamilton — who is one victory from tying Michael Schumacher’s career record and also could tie the F1 record with a seventh championship this season — spent some time with the greatest basketball player of all time.
