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 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 -

  1. Hi Matt,

    Any Idea why Merc are suddenly using those really bulbous things on either side of the air inlet on the roll hoop ?

    1. Hi Seamus

      Yes they house IR (infrared) cameras


  2. As I suspected, the McLaren rear wishbone wings have been replaced with one-piece Carbon Fibre ones....otherwise in my view they would have been illegal.
