Having been leap froggedby Ferrari, Williams are eager to improve performance of the FW37 to take the fight to Ferrari and Mercedes.  In China they tried out a cooling solution that the team also briefly assessed on the FW36 during 2014.

The usual configuration (left) has two engine cover cooling outlets, the green section terminating ahead of the elongated bodywork in yellow.  The configuration tried out by the team in China closed off the upper outlet with the team employing two small outlets much higher up on the engine covers spine (below).

  1. The new outlet is tiny! Is there another outlet? Underneath there must be big changes.

    1. Nope the small outlet was it, they didn't race it anyway, returning to the old layout as they were having some attachment issues by all accounts.

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.
