We have another different podium and a couple of new entries for round 3. The results are available here. This was the final high-downforce round, as the rest of the season takes place on circuits which reward efficiency over maximum downforce.

Starter parts released

Along with a new rulebook draft, a set of starter parts have been made available for those with less time available to spend on modelling. These include the central bodywork covering the nose, tub and drivetrain, and bodywork covering the wheels. These parts, as well as the current rulebook draft, are available on the 2015 page.

Updated rulebook package including guide files

An updated version of the rulebook package has been released and can be found on the 2015 page or here. This release includes an updated version of the guide files in STEP and Sketchup 8 format. Also included are parts used for CFD simulation (wheels and suspension members), though these parts have no bearing on the regulations. Again we welcome any comments in the F1techincal discussion thread.
