Thank you, very, very interesting & has been a well kept secret for a long time. However they only show a very superficial look at it.It is much more complicated than that. One thing that surprised me was the position of the pedal setup.  Mick B.

  Fascinating, but it does show how ludicrously complicated modern F1 cars are. Compare this - and the racing we see these days - with the sublime Lotus 49 with Jim Clark at the wheel. I couldn't find a cutaway of the 49, but the next generation Lotus 72 make a useful comparison.
