A selection of the best technical images from Fridays action in Montreal courtesy of Sutton Images

Ferrari F14T - Great shot of the new engine cover and elongated sidepods treated in flo-viz to ascertain if they're performing as expected

 Red Bull RB10 - To suit the medium downforce characteristics of Montreal the team aren't running the nose with it's usual 'pelican' underbelly, whilst at the rear of the car the team have reduced the number of endplate louvres but re-introduced leading edge tyre wake slots (not used since last season)





Ferrari F14T - Note the height of the upper flap, the team have cut the top element down, removing not only the gurney trim but also the V grooves (use the image above this as a reference)




 Mercedes WO5 - New heat treatment added to the top of the crash structure and more added to the Monkey Seat since Monaco.

McLaren MP4-29 - The team trying the car without the upper wishone 'wings' almost certainly in an effort to reduce some drag.

McLaren MP4-29 - Pitot tube array placed ahead of the rear wheels to assess the airflow in the region, most likely as a result of only running the lower wishbone 'wings' as mentioned above.

 Ferrari F14T - 'Back to Back' testing for correlation the older specification engine cover and sidepods

 Force India VJM07 - Flo-viz applied to the rear wing to assess the sections cut off the top of the top flap (see lower image for comparison with regular flap)









 Lotus E22 - Lower downforce rear wing (much shallower AoA)








 Ferrari F14T - Top/rear view shows that the sidepods have been extended to reach beyond the rear suspension elements now

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.
