Force India took the opportunity at the post Bahrain GP test to assess a few new rear end details that the team then adopted for the Chinese GP. 


Either side of the crash structure and within the Y100 limitations the team have been using a winglet to create upwash, at the post Bahrain test and in China this increased to two winglets either side of the crash structure (arrowed).

The team have also made alterations to the Diffuser (circled), with the largest change coming at the outer channels. The outer sections now arc over making the diffuser shorter at its periphery, with the now more complex vertical strakes still outwardly pointed in order to affect the wheels wake outbound of it. The detached Gurney trim also follows the full periphery of the diffuser rather than stopping blunt like the older specification diffuser.

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 Motorsport.com where I'm working with Giorgio Piola.

I'm still doing the technical image gallery for each GP with the continued support of friend of the site Sutton Images. However, as always my time is limited and so this might not be updated as quickly as it once was, so keep checking back.

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.
