Ciao Bella: Part 2 – More Italian F1 GP, Rally cars, AMG Driving Academy, and more!


It’s interesting—in order to reproduce these two noses from the Verstappen/Sainz Torro Rosso cars, it would cost about as much a median home in Riverside County, California (in other words, over 300 grand). And why not when it takes some teams over 1500 man hours to produce one, plus the time spent during all of its testing!

This is what the pit bosses get to stare at throughout the entire race.  I've always wondered how much of the glamour of what you do in the sport is taken out when you have to sit here the whole time.  (Sorry chaps, I’m going back to my seat.)

Earlier, I’d mentioned there was carbon everywhere in an F1 car.  Well, it’s even on each of the team’s wiring and hydraulic line booms!

When it comes to the rest of the F1 viewing world outside Italy, all eyes are on this car this year—the #44 of 2-time and defending World Champion, Lewis Hamilton, who’s also the 2015 points leader.

Here’s Lewis’ car with the front wing off.  His feet go right up to these crash supports inside.
