  • Brilliant and clearly explained tech talk. Keep it up guys!

  • This guy "Sam", isn't he the Max Verstappen basher? So far for independent journalism...

    Wim FrankenWim Franken10 napja
  • This is similar to a swept airplane wing and is acting like a spanwise flow along the tapered edge. This tapered edge directs the flow more inboard in this case as explained. The straighter the wing or in this case the cut the straighter the vortex will be. Nice simple and accurate discription in this video!

    MGXsportMGXsport10 napja
  • That was brilliant. More of this please.

  • Just go back to a flat bottom car like in 1991-1993. Stepped floor is used incorrectly at 06:05s in this video. We've had "stepped floors" since 1995. Stepped floor indicates the step in the Z axis.

    Brad SimkinBrad Simkin12 napja
    • He said water is a fluid, like air. He’s 100% correct. Why is that funny ?

  • FIA slowing the cars down for safety thought the aim was to go as fast as possible? Also how fast could an F1 car go when un restricted? any answer appreciated 😁

    • @KillCamEditoR oohhh thxx

      Briek Van AudekerkeBriek Van Audekerke11 napja
    • At its most basic, the diffuser helps the air that travels under the car leave very cleanly and efficiently, so that the air pressure under the car is as low as possible, which creates more downforce (the cars have more grip and can go through corners faster).

  • FIA has become like FIFA, favoring teams paying them money

    Najstar43211Najstar4321113 napja
  • Nothing like a discussion on fluid dynamics to get an old jaded mechanical engineer all excited 😊

    Kid OctaneKid Octane13 napja
  • Craig and Sam are definitely a new power team for F1 analysis!

    LeeLee13 napja
  • Wasn't the story that Pirelli wanted less downforce (as they couldn't make new tyres) and the FIA obliged, then they made harder tyres anyway?

    Ash RAsh R13 napja
  • Craig - what a legend. Just give me an hour of him talking tech - don’t need the other presenter - he added nothing.

    Steven MarshallSteven Marshall13 napja
  • You lost me when you uttered the words "Because water is just a fluid ... like air" at 6:31 Sure you meant it behaves in a similar way but...

  • "Water is just a fluid, like air" almost made sense in the context

    RevAKAtheRevelRevAKAtheRevel13 napja
    • What do you mean « almost » ? Water and air are both fluids, that’s 100% correct.

      KillCamEditoRKillCamEditoR11 napja
  • Would you say that both Craig and Sam are sporting "The Hunter look"...? Guys, linen please.

    bizlingbizling13 napja
  • 6:30 Stop the press, we have confirmation that water is a fluid, like air.

    bizlingbizling13 napja
    • Judging by the comments here, it seems like him reiterating that won’t hurt. A lot of people are very confused on the matter.

      KillCamEditoRKillCamEditoR11 napja
  • Water is just a fluid, like air? Wait what? Air is a mixture of gasses.. Not sure if I should continue to believe anything Sam says in the future 😂

    Anastasis KoutroulosAnastasis Koutroulos13 napja
  • Could you please do a video analysis of if and how scratching the floor (by taking kerbs, mowing the grass [Bottas], running off into the gravel), has any impact on aero performance? It'd be super interesting.
