Mercedes running a new version of the larger Y100 winglet / Monkey Seat that the team ran on the W05 and on the W06 with the twin pylons.  When they ran the older version mounted on the single pylon earlier in the test it quickly became detached under load (If you picked it up let me know ;))
The new Y100 winglet from behind shows that the endplates are shorter, which means the curvature at their base now only comes around half way up the exhaust.

Flo-Viz on the RB11 assessing the endplates they started to use yesterday

A decent shot of the new turning vanes being used by Mercedes at this test
FW37 -  New front wing, note the outer cascade is smaller whilst the inboard 'r' cascade has lost the horizontal elements
 W06 with flo-viz applied to the front wings neutral section, under the nose and around the new camera mounts

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.
