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 -

Disappointingly Williams decided to change their wing mirror mounts for the Spanish GP, the stand out wing mirror design of the season saw the mirror itself mounted on twin stalks that acted as Vortex Generators for the Sidepod beyond.  However with some changes made in Barcelona to their Sidepods the treatment of the airflow ahead of them is critical to how they behave aerodynamically and so a more traditional mirror stalk has been employed instead.

Of course the cockpit vanes surrounding the mirror have been retained albeit with some minor modification to their size and orientation.
