Seen as the Red Bull B team and frankly well under budget compared to the A team, Toro Rosso are really starting to punch above their weight. Clearly the FIA's stranglehold on the CFD and Wind Tunnel regulations should suit some of the midfield pack and Toro Rosso are seemingly taking advantage of that fact.

As part of a pretty large upgrade package the Faenza based squad made what outwardly looks like a minor change to their Sidepod cooling outlets. In fact it changes not only the way airflow is dealt with internally but also changes the Sidepods upper surface performance, whilst providing a cleaner airflow path around the coke bottle and another low pressure zone above the diffuser. Austria proved to be a bad race for the team but expect these changes to have a good affect going forward.



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 where I'm working with Giorgio Piola.

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.
