Hey guys- I'm a GP/SBK guy but I'm getting into F1 lately, can you please clear up a silly newbie question? When a team says McClaran-Mercedes or Sauber-Ferrari (as opposed to Ferrari-Ferrari for example) does that mean the first name (Sauber) made the chassis and the latter (Ferrari) provide the engine? Or vise-versa, or not tue chassis but something else (money?) thanks for helping me out gents it's a hard Q to google!

Bump Stop: "I hope Fernades Lotus charged Chandok a lot of money for the season"

From what I could see on TV, it didn't appear to be driver error. He was going in a straight line. not particularly fast, when the car suddenly turned into the wall. If they could get it to turn that fast into the corners they'd have a race winner.

Peawee: "Is this just me or were the mclarens constantly using the rear wing this morning?"

They all were. During practice and qualifying they can use the rear wing as much as they like. Its only in the race that the rear wing rules come into play. I'm not sure about KERS. Last time we had it I think the seven second restriction applied during the qualifying session same as the race.
