  • OK, here is my feelings about Adrian Newey's talent....
    As a professional Mechanical Designer, as opposed to a mechanical Engineer, I can appreciate Adrian Newey's reliance on visual feeling about whether something will or won't work, instead of a computer generated design. Some people are able to visualize things in a very practical way, seeing in their “mind's eye” a very detailed picture of any particular object. He is undoubtedly very adept at that, and probably very few can “imagine” a train of events from beginning to finality. He is exceptional.

  • To Cosworth's post: "Here's a 4 cylinder 3 wheeler I used to run around in. Not as powerful as the other vehicles here but much faster"
    Here is my old 3 wheeler in 1974, it was built in 1946.... cruise all day at 120 mph, paid $3,000 for it!

  • An Ercoupe! A wonderful plane with no rudder pedals. Back in the 90's a pilot here in Lancaster had one & I got to fly it a couple of times.
