RBR floor declared illegal, should be a very easy fix though.

Sounds like it, just cut the hole and become a "slot".
Sauber ones seems to be legal.

After reading the article I would say you'd have more job security writing the regulations than designing cars.

I was interviewed by Shaun Whitehead. Don't know if any of you know who he is, but hes the manager of the aerodynamics department at RBR.

Well the interview focused on me, asked about my background why I would work at the team. Basic job interview stuff. They asked me a few questions about RBR - like history of thee team and stuff, nothing too specific, but general questions.

He then showed me a few pictures of parts on the car and asked if I knew the function of each one, thankfully nothing as mundane and small as the slotted versus enclosed hole thing came up.


No I didnt meet any of the drivers, Horner, or Newey. And in the end they decided that I didnt have enough experience at that level of aerodynamics work. So im moving on and hopefully will apply again in a few years.

It's too bad that it did not pan out, but it still must have been a great experience.

COTA ticket prices are up and go on sale June 10! Prices seem pretty reasonable.
