I'm Matthew Somerfield, a freelance journalist focused on the technical elements of Formula One. It has been a pleasure to provide content via this site for the last 5 years, which has led me to several paid freelancing jobs along the way. I'm currently plying my trade with and working alongside the legend that is Giorgio Piola.

This has seen the content here diminish as a result and I'd like that to change. In order to accomplish this I need your financial support, as I need to break free of the shackles of doing this part time. If you like the content I've been producing and want more of it I'd ask that if you can spare some change each month it'd go a long way towards transforming this site into the technical behemoth I know it can be.

As such I've set up a 'tip jar' over on Patreon and will continue to set goals and rewards based on our success -

Mercedes have made a change to the rear end of the sidepod, with the latter section of the bodywork detached from the rest of the sidepod cooling outlet (yellow).  This means the airflow passing around the sidepod (blue) is drawn in under the cooling outlet, which too has been raised. This helps to pull on the heat/airflow being rejected by the PU106B, speeding up the flow, over the central section of the diffuser, which as we know has also seen changes over the last few days.
