Rubber...KERS...and the likes

Second day on duty today, hot & humid, almost no wind except the constant blow from the aircond....sheer bliss compared to being on the track service road in a Nomex...and this year, with thick rubber gloves!!
Why rubber gloves?
Protection against potential shock by being in contact with the F1 vehicle.
KERS - kinetic energy recovering system. A new technology required in the rigs for this season. Simply put - like a dynamo to recover & store power to be used for specific manouver depending on the driver. Cool? Not sure yet!!
