I'll be updating this post throughout the day as all the best images come in from Sutton Images

 Mercedes have placed a kiel probe array toward the rear of the car, collecting data on the airflow as it moves around the sidepod into the coke bottle region

Williams add an additional vertical floor strake ahead of the rear tyre on the FW37, which will help to control the way in which tyre squirt impinges on diffuser performance  (A design akin to Mercedes)

  1. Great article!

    Its interesting to compare the back part of the sidepods on the Sauber and the Ferrari.

    Same engine, but such a big difference. Ferrari's are much more smaller, compact, curved. Those on sauber look like from 2002 or so. Is there any possible explanation?


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.
