If you have ever wondered what a Formula One Teams VW Bus would look like if they had them, wonder no longer, as we have scoured the far corners of the internet and found a complete set of VW Buses all decked out in the 2013 Formula One car liveries.

Why Useful Pixels have created this I have no idea, apart from they must be huge VW and Formula One fans, but the graphics are pretty cool and the idea is certainly way out there. Just the kind of off the wall stuff we like to find and bring to you.

Differences between 2012 and 2013 F1 Tires

Peter Hewson, the head of tires for the Caterham Formula One team goes in depth to explain the differences between the 2012 and 2013 Formula One tires as supplied by Pirelli.

I’m not sure about you, but for me all the messing around with tires has added a level of confusion to watching F1 races. You are never quite sure of where everyone is at with their tire strategy or wear.
