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 -

A selection of the best technical images from the Monaco GP courtesy of Sutton Images to be updated throughout the weekend



  1. Hi Matt,

    Great fan and always looking forward to these photo's at raceweekends.
    Just to verify :
    Something that caught my eye somewhere, was that the Mac of Kevin had blown front wheels, although they did not use it in the race afterwards

    I think that was the first time, mac was blowing ;-)

    1. Hi Peter

      I've had a look through the images at my disposal and can't see evidence of Kevin using a blown hub but I'll keep an eye out...



      Difficult to see on this one...
      Looking for a better one still I saw somewhere without the tyre on ...

  2. The rear exhaust image of the Red Bull shows what appears to be a truncated beam wing positioned under the exhaust. What's with that?

    1. Hi

      Yes they've been using this all season, it lies in the Y100 region and so is perfectly acceptable. As you say it does look like a beam wing position and so rather than call it a Monkey Seat i've been calling it a beam wing slice.
