F1 technology behind GB bobsleigh

British Bobsleigh are bidding for their first Olympic gold medal since the 1964 Innsbruck Games in Sochi - a mission dubbed 'Project 50'.

In order to boost their projects the GB team have enlisted the help of leading technologists from F1 team McLaren [Applied Technologies] and British Aerospace [BAe Systems].

BBC Sport's Nick Hope speaks with British pilot John Jackson and the programme's performance director Gary Anderson about how the developments will boost their prospects in Russia.
