A selection of the best technical images from Barcelona courtesy of Sutton Images
 Sauber C34 - Upwash strakes added to the outside of the rear wing endplates

 McLaren MP4-30 rear end detail, note the small V in the centre of the diffuser, rather than the full U used latterly in 2014




Mercedes W06 - New rear wing layout see's the centre support pylons reduced to a singular centre-line version, this also means a re-design of the mainplane and top flap as the flap separators ran along the same Y axis, furthermore the trailing edge of the top flap now only features a sigular V groove too.  The endplates have also been slightly revised with the lower upwash serrations raised a little.
 Lotus E23 - As we can see in the inset the team have shrink wrapped the bodywork around the exhaust outlet










 






Mercedes W06 - The team have revised their cockpit fin, what was a flat rhomboid shape before has been replaced with an L shaped fin that will work with the mirror stalk.

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.
