As we know the E22 sports several asymmetric components already but in Spa the team decided they would also change their approach to cooling the car in this way too.  As we can see the left hand side of the car, which houses the chargecooler setup had a significantly larger cooling outlet when compared with the right hand side.  With the size of the cooling system inside the sidepod seemingly increased for Spa the team decided that this shouldn't affect the other side of the car and ran a much smaller cover on the right.  I'm still not wholly convinced by the teams asymmetric philosophy especially owing to its aerodynamic impact, but on a circuit dominated by long straights, perhaps it was simply a case of their drivers being aware of the balance issues in sector 2.

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.
