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.

As we can see from the image above Lotus arrived in Monaco with a new set of rear wing endplates, featuring slots in the leading edge.  These slots help to distribute pressure from the outside of the endplate inbound, making it more efficient.  (You'll also note that the thickness of the endplate around the slots on the leading edge has been reduced).  These tyre wake slots have featured on other cars since 2012 with some teams now utilising 2 per endplate but this is the first time that Lotus have ventured into this territory.
