For a brief period during Friday's free practice sessions Nico Hulkenberg ran his VJM07 with a new rear wing support, instead of employing two pylons as the team usually do (below) they trialled the car with just one.  It's unclear if the pylon was mounted through the engine cover like Red Bull does or whether they employed a Y-Lon but I'm sure we'll see this used again in Silverstone.  The pylons of course increase rigidity to the wing but will have an effect on the aero too, with this in mind teams have been making alterations to their setup since the start of the season to make gains.

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.
