Force India arrived at the Red Bull Ring with a huge quantity of new parts, pushing forward some of the upgrades they initially planned to introduce in Silverstone.


The team made some small alterations to their Front Wing, especially around the endplates. The team have utilized multi element endplates since the start of the season but they've now revised the base of the trailing Endplate with the lower section cut out. These changes are designed to re-envisage what the team are looking to achieve both locally and further downstream.

The loss of 75mm either side of the front wing for 2014 obviously changed all the teams approaches, however as their packages evolve they also need to make further changes to address any issues. Or in Force India's case alter the relevant airflow structures to take into account changes made downstream, targeting improvements in tandem with other solutions.

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.
