  1. The Williams front wing detail is just silly. There must be a point at which the Law of Diminishing Returns comes into play with these daft aero additions?

    1. It's not that silly, it's got them a front row lock out!

    2. Well - we'll see how they do in the race, apparently they were chewing up their rear tyres. At least being at the front means they might not get the winglets knocked off at the first corner!

    3. 3rd and 4th say to me it must be working fairly well.

    4. Working fairly well for 3rd and 4th implies a correlation, but does not provide proof of causation surely?

    5. Well I have to admit the boys done good, but I doubt the multi winglet front wing was as cost effective as the Merc power unit and the software to run it.

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.
