The KERS assisted "turbo boost" is too cool!

I'm still trying to figure out why the drivers are supposed to "jump clear" (sort of like if electric lines were laying on your car) of the KERS equipped cars. Some sort of risk for electrocution from what they are saying. Scary stuff...

Makes me think that some teams are storing very high voltage in more of a capacitor-type device rather than lower voltage in batteries.

Every pit stop this season will be a game of Russian Roulette.... will a pit crew member get TASED or not? That'll make me watch every race!

If you watch, I'm pretty sure there are metal grounding "fingers" that ground the cars as they come into their pit, to ground the vehicle during fueling. Having the fuel rig be the first thing that touched the car would probably not be a good thing. Shocked
