A selection of the best technical images from the preparations at Monza on Thursday courtesy of Sutton Images

 Ferrari F138 - during build up we can see the lower downforce configuration Rear Wing used briefly in Free Practice at Spa

 Force India VJM06 Gearbox being worked on during build up

 McLaren MP4-28 Brake detail, note the meshed lower inlet

 Red Bull RB9 rear end during build up

Mercedes W04 - rear end during build up

Mercedes W04 - Another all new Rear Wing following on from the same ethos as the Spa arrangement the Endplates feature 2 small Louvres set back off the leading edge more than usual whist the tyre wake slot has been increased significantly.  The mainplane and top flap have lost their smaller central chord as used in Spa but are set as expected at a low AoA

 Williams FW35 Brake assembly detail

 Williams FW35 - Exposed shot of the cars floor

 Williams FW35 Low downforce Rear Wing also shows the DRS hydraulic line usually enclosed in the Endplate

 Sauber C32 - DRD Ear's are placed on the car during build up

 Lotus E21 Upright

 Force India VJM06 Exhaust

 Ferrari F138 Front Wing with the upper (inner) flap(s) detached, likely that this standard version of the wing (with Cascades) will be trialled in free practice with a singular inner top flap which differs from it's usual split flap arrangement

 Ferrari F138 - New Front Wing features no cascade, only 2 slots in the footplate and has vertical strakes applied in front of the dividing line between multi tier flap section and the inner less tiered section.

 Mercedes W04 - Close up of the new Endplate (details mentioned above)

  1. It seems that the technical wing works so hard for every race.The important thing is that servicing and proper maintenance is required
    for good performance.

Whilst I'm trying to keep atop of the blog you may have noticed of late that there is less content appearing. For those of you that haven't realised, most of my work has now been moved over to where I'm working with Giorgio Piola.

As some of you may have found out already I'm also working with the Missed Apex crew on their podcast from time-to-time, either doing race reviews or dedicated 'Tech Time' shows.

I've embedded the latest version of the podcast below and will update this a frequently as I appear. However, please head over to Itunes if you want it to appear in your player when episodes are available. The show is great to work on and has a great lineup of 'regulars' but has also enticed some bigger names recently too, with Will Buxton and Bradley Philpot on shows during the summer break.
