A Little Wear and Tear

Just prior to recording this week we were talking about the amount of abuse an F1 car takes when there's a long string of flyaway races like at the start of the season.  From what we can see on television the cars still look pristine and fresh after every race weekend no matter where they are in the world.

But the truth is much different as you can see below in this picture from McLaren taken after this weekend's race in China..

McLaren tells us that the nose is shipped back to the McLaren Technology Center in Woking where it is stripped, sanded, refinished and back with the team in time for the next race.
