If you're new to Formula One, there is a number that may be helpful to know and that's 640kgs. The reason this is an important number, or weight, is that it represents the total weight a F1 car must weigh at all times. In order to better understand what 640kgs means, I've made a simple video to explain:
Just over six weeks ago I was in Brazil, at the final race of the 2012 FIA Formula One World Championship. For fans that was the end of their F1 year. The end of the Brazilian GP was their signal that there would be no more F1 until February, but for the teams it's a very different story.
So that's it. 2012 is now last year and the 2013 season is already coming up soon. Not much is changing in terms of rules, so the field probably won't change much either - so you could say that 2012 is just a taster of what 2013 is going to be like. I cannot wait.
