wow- remember this guy so well from spygate...

Former Ferrari mechanic who worked with Michael Schumacher and Ayrton Senna dies in crash

A former Ferrari engineer who was sacked by the Formula One team after being accused of sabotage and leaking confidential data has been killed in a road accident.

Ex-Ferrari technician Nigel Stepney was killed on the M20 near Ashford in Kent when he was struck by a lorry yesterday morning. He was praised by his family as "a wonderful partner and a hands-on dad".  The 56-year-old father found himself at the centre of a Formula One "spygate" scandal after being accused of sabotage and leaking confidential data to McLaren in 2007, and was sacked by the F1 team.

Mr Stepney's long-term partner, Ash Naidoo, paid tribute to his passion, energy and devotion to his daughter.  Ms Naidoo, mother of the couple's seven-year-old daughter Sabine, said: "Nigel was wonderful to know - larger than life and full of energy. Motor sport was his passion topped only by his love and devotion to Sabine and I.

"Nigel was a wonderful partner and a hands-on dad who was besotted with his daughter who idolised him in return.  "They loved each other's company and Sabine was his shadow - delighting in helping him around the garage. Even if Nigel had to be away from home, he would phone her every day."

Mr Stepney's career in Formula One included working with world champions Ayrton Senna - who died during a Grand Prix 20 years ago on Thursday - at Lotus and Michael Schumacher at Ferrari. Four years ago he joined Daventry-based JRM as racing team manager and technical director.

Speaking from her Essex home, Ms Naidoo said: "I am so grateful for the love and support of our friends and Nigel's colleagues from the world of motor sport, especially JRM."  The Briton was fired by Ferrari after being accused of passing data to the McLaren team, and he never worked in F1 again.  The scandal broke after a technical dossier on Ferrari cars was found at the home of McLaren chief designer Mike Coughlan.  McLaren were handed a record fine and kicked out of the manufacturers' championship after being accused of using the leaked information.

Too lop sided.

yup, some good racing below the podium though... if nando didn't have nine fewer laps on his tires than Kimi did, i'd be a whole different story

am i missing something or is he talking sh!t about an INTERcooler... i know it uses a cooler but i always thought an intercooler went between the exhaust stage and the boost stage of a single unit turbo and that is what Mercedes was eliminating?

The way I read it, they have divorced the hot side from the cold side of the turbo via this shaft.
It’s more of a packaging improvement, also keeping heat out of the intake side.

yeah, the turbo is on the hot end and the compressor is on the cool end yet the air still goes through an external cooler, but the talker kept saying INTERcooler and i just wonder if he thinks he knows what he's talking about or simply reading something handed to him...

and Mercedes was smart, they didn't supply their customer engines with this set up
