The last stop before the summer break being Hungary meant the team bolting on as much downforce as possible but the return to racing at Spa offers a new challenge.  The 7km circuit has some of the longest straights on the calender but also has its fair share of complex corners, making it a challenging place for the teams to get their aerodynamic packages right.  Rather than produce a race specific rear wing the team have returned to a specification last used in Montreal.

The wing features a much lower angle of attack than usually utilised with just two *louvres placed in either endplate. 

*Louves are used to reduce tip vortices (which of course there are less of when less AoA is run)


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.
