Lotus continue to battle to regain ground lost having been late with their 2014 challenger, a succession of powerunit issues has also curtailed the Enstone based teams performances and so they approached Barcelona with fresh vigor hoping to put some of this behind them.


Lotus briefly trialled a new front wing in Barcelona featuring outer endplate canards/winglets, as Lotus run multi element endplates each side of the wing featured two canards. The aim of these canards/winglets is to affect the pressure gradient, creating an area of low pressure behind them that helps to draw the airflow passing over the inside of the wing to move outside. This should increase the control of the airflow as it passes around and over the front tyre, which is also critical to how the rest of the car performs.

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.
