Autosport reports that a joint venture between Microsoft and McLaren Electronic Systems has won the tender to supply the standard electronic control units (ECUs) which all Formula One engines will need to be equipped with from 2008 onwards. (http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/55980 ). Presumably, the drivers' steering wheels will also be equipped with Ctrl, Alt and Delete buttons. (It's an obvious gag, but I like obvious).
