On Fan Power

Lewis Hamilton will turn to fan power this weekend in his bid to land a British Grand Prix victory.

What was going through my mind whilst reading this sentence?

1) "What, they're attaching a fan to his car? Are they really that desperate!?"

2) Wait, attaching a fan to his car... they can't do that, it's illegal! Brabham tried that in 1978 with the
BT46B (pictured below), but the FIA banned it!

Halfway through the article I discovered they meant the zeal of British racing spectators, aka fans..
