With KERS being revived and expected to race again next year, let’s just recap what hardware’s involved and how its packaging affects the car design for 2011.

KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) is a hybrid drive system that the FIA allowed to be raced as part of the 2009 major rules rewrite. It allows energy to be harvested under braking and stored, then that energy can be released to provide a power boost for around 6s per lap.
