Formula 1 Then and Now

I admit I am not a big Formula 1 fan (I appreciate it, just not enough to follow it meticulously), but I found a couple of videos that are worth putting here.

First, the speed at which pit stops are made these days (compared to 1950) is pretty impressive.

Also, there has been a change in regulation concerning the engines between seasons 2013 and 2014. As a result, the sound/noise they make now isn't as... magestic, however it seems it was done in order to push engineers into making more fuel-efficient engines. Technology that could be transferred to... regular cars in the near future.

Update: Here are the changes made to Formula 1 explained by drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel. Thanks to dedicated blog reader Ksp (aka PJK) for this!
