A selection of the best technical images from Silverstone courtesy of Sutton Images, I'll update this as and when I can as I'll be at Silverstone later in the weekend.



  1. Interesting slots on rear wing support/exhaust wrap around... Sauber?

  2. No, that's Red Bull and Ferrari.

  3. No, it's definitely a Sauber. maybe for cooling?

  4. I have a question a little silly. Why the front wings not have endplates on the inside near the nose?

    1. The middle section has to be to an FIA standard shape and aero neutral. No winglets or vanes are allowed in that area.

    2. Matty is right, however they could run endplates next to the neutral central section. This however wouldn't produce the same results currently garnered with tip vortices in the Y250 region, which is a preferable means of controlling how the front wheel wake impinges on the centreline performance. Furthermore endplates increase a wings aspect ratio and to be the teams generate more than enough front downforce.


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.
