Looking at the people this year, it's been people like (from Red Bull) Peter Prodromou, Newey, Rob Marshall; while from McLaren they've had Paddy Lowe; Jenson's engineer (I can't remember who his name is)
I've been noticing that some people, especially Jenson; aren't afraid of talking about their car's characteristics in their backstage. And in particular, Jenson. For example when we had a Vettel-Hamilton-Button podium in Barcelona this year, Jenson walked over to Lewis and said, "Did you lose massive amounts of front, when you're behind someone? I was really struggling, even behind back markers."
I'm just wondering; are teams purposely sending technical people there to catch such glimpses of the other cars' characteristics etc? Eavesdropping, almost.
Unless it's Monaco of course. Then the team principal goes
