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.

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.
