Finally, F1 has found a way to bring racing tech to everyday life! Williams has applied F1 aero tech to your local super market milk cooler.
Williams is working with the Sainsbury's grocery folks to use F1 airfoil tech to help keep the cold air inside of their coolers. Williams has used fluid dynamics to design little fins that go on the end of the shelves. They reduce power usage by 10% to 32%, depending on the size of the fridge.
This breakthrough will be far more useful to F1 fans on this side of the pond, since we drink our beer cold.

Off to the Abu Dhabi GP next week - should have mobile data at the track so I'll post some live pics up on my Instagram (@robem64) if anyone's interested.
Shame it's not the championship decider I'd hoped for but still looking forward to it - and a bit of sunshine a month before Xmas won't go amiss (when you're in the UK you crave it!).
First time I will have been to this race - anyone got any tips. We're in the North Stand which overlooks the hairpin.

Vettel: perfect race, very little TV time. Remember in the days when Schumacher would lead from start to finish and the camera didn't leave him?
Bottas: Very good race. He's a great driver, but doesn't have that 'killer instinct' that champions seem to have. Hopefully he finds it and becomes a serious contender next season.
Kimi: Very good race. Definitely a step down from the top drivers, but always reliable and entertaining, wish he could stay in F1 forever.
Hamilton: the race of the day. He started back, and did just about everything he could to get on the podium. Kimi defended him perfectly, if anyone else had been in third, I'm sure that Hamilton would have passed and been on the podium.
Renault, Honda, Mercedes and Ferrari: not a single blown engine. True, plenty of replacement parts and grid penalties to go 'round but still, no smoking ruins is good fun.
Massa: He was right to go out last year. I would never blame someone for racing in F1 if they're offered a position, but he was clearly slower this year. He acquitted himself well in Brazil, but not a classic sendoff.
Grosjean: everyone wanted to see the Perez/Ocon showdown, how dare you rob us of the most interesting thing left in 2017!
Stroll: some days he shows the maturity and skill of a future champion. Most days his mind wanders and he makes 'rookie mistakes'.

Just to say that I haven't forgotten about this forum or the game, but I've had so much going on lately that my time management is all at sea. I thought that the race started at 6pm for some reason, so no predictions from me this time around, as I've missed the deadline.
