Click Red Play Button

The biggest issue facing the Corvette into the future is being able to maintain its extraordinary performance against the threat of fuel economy legislation. In this Podcast, I interview Peter Wright, ex Chief Engineer of the Lotus F-1 program, co-inventor of active suspension and now a consultant to F-1. We’re going to talk about design optimization in the digital world and F-1s mandate for energy recovery systems on board the race cars just one year out.

Peter and I are fellow inductees as Fellows of the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers). 20 to 25 Fellow grade memberships are conferred each year from a membership of about 80,000. Peter has written two books on F-1 racing which I highly recommend. Formula 1 Technology and Ferrari F-1, Under the Skin of the Championship Winning F-1 2000.
