Welcome

I'm Matthew Somerfield, a freelance journalist focused on the technical elements of Formula One. It has been a pleasure to provide content via this site for the last 5 years, which has led me to several paid freelancing jobs along the way. I'm currently plying my trade with Motorsport.com and working alongside the legend that is Giorgio Piola.

This has seen the content here diminish as a result and I'd like that to change. In order to accomplish this I need your financial support, as I need to break free of the shackles of doing this part time. If you like the content I've been producing and want more of it I'd ask that if you can spare some change each month it'd go a long way towards transforming this site into the technical behemoth I know it can be.

As such I've set up a 'tip jar' over on Patreon and will continue to set goals and rewards based on our success - www.patreon.com/SomersF1

Caterham like the other Renault powered F1 teams suffered with reliability issues throughout pre-season testing. The team encountered further issues throughout the weekend in Melbourne and Kamui Kobayashi even changed his Energy Store, meaning he only has 4 remaining before he would take a penalty to change one.

Even so the team still had aerodynamic changes for the CT05, albeit with the new front wing only run on Kobayshi's car for qualifying/race. As we can see the changes come in the form of a new outer cascade element (reminiscent of the 3 tier one used on the Williams last season), Ericsson's car (upper right).
