Caterham introduced a raft of upgrades for the Belgian GP (New Nose, engine cover / cooling & rear wing endplate strakes) but always the pace of development in Formula One is relentless, so for Monza the team also looked at making changes to their front wing.
As we can see in the main image the upper flaps height was reduced significantly, which results in less peak downforce. This will of course provide less drag across the length of the car, with less components seeing their airflow manipulated.  The team have run both this and their regular wing (inset) throughout the Free Practice sessions in order to assess which gives the best balance.

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.
