Every year there are new rules and regulation for Formula One racing and this video goes through some of the more cosmetic changes. Forget those. Watch the video after the jump for a great, non-gearhead explanation of KERS. This system seems totally out of Burnout; seriously. The Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems recovers energy that would normally be wasted on braking and converts it into electricity for an extra boost of power that can be used on-demand later during the race. Sounds crazy enough that I might actually watch the full season of F1 this year.
