Actually that was a forerunner of the "3rd spring" i.e. a spring that would only compress at high aerodynamic forces to prevent the car from being pushed further down and allow instead a softer suspension.

Now a veeeery easy one for a change:

Who broke the long standing tradition of Indianapolis 500 winners taking a dip of milk, what did he drink instead and why?

Wasn't that about the time they were sponsored by Saudi Airlines(and others like Albilad) and they weren't allowed to drink alcohol because of their religion?

Did they have to drink rose water instead?

Yep that's why they couldn't drink champagne, but that's not what they were drinking instead. Smile

Meanwhile, you can't drink alcohol at Abu Dhabi or Bahrain, much to Kimi's disappointment Razz

I was guessing, no clue what they were drinking. Maybe juice aswell?

:clap: Yep Mansell had been offered £10,000 to do the race but Chapman thought that by doing the race he was exposing himself to unnecessary risk and paid him £10,000.
