Mercedes have added small inlet scoops to the face of their brake ducts today.  The scoop is much smaller than the one used on the W05 but puts the team at a juncture in terms of their quest to utilise a scoop-less design.  The presence of wire mesh is owing to the scoops locality, with a real chance of tyre debris (marbles) being collected by it, potentially causing damage to internal components or nullifying its aerodynamic/cooling intent.



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.
