(I'm electrical. They never talk about the bits of the car that interest me. For example, do they have to specify mil-spec EEE parts to get the reliability they need? Do they have the same problem I do where you have to buy 1000 capacitors when you need only 5 because there isn't enough demand for the mil-spec ones for anyone to keep them in stock? (and of course the lead time is like 8 months) How much processing do they do onboard the vehicle? Presumably as little as possible to save weight, but what if they lose comms with the pit during the race? And as for those comms, have they got a spectrum manager assigning frequencies per driver? Do they have to coordinate with the local authorities to get other transmissions in the area shut down during the race to avoid interference? Speaking of interference, what sort of design provisions do they make for EMI, and where/how do they test? Etc. That's what's *interesting*. But all we ever hear about is winglets and MGU-(pick your favorite letter)s.)

I'm actually at work right now but following quals on Motorsport.com. Mercedes got out of Q2 on ultras, Red Bull on hypers...going to be an interesting start to the race.
