Force India had a significant upgrade package in Austria refining what had already turned out to be quite a nice package for the 2014 season.  The update package was however first scheduled for Silverstone and so with the team bringing it forward there were still some lingering components to come through over the next few races.  At the post Silverstone test the team assessed a new engine cover which repositioned one of the oil coolers, deleting the cooling snorkel and saw the introduction of an enlarged shark fin.
Now whilst this option was available to the team for Germany and was trialed during Free Practice the team opted for something a little different.  They retained their original engine cover (above) but deleted the snorkel inlet and associated internal pipework, having already relocated the cooler.
The previous specification with snorkel inlet can be seen above

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.
