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 -

Having introduced extensive changes to the FW37 in Austria the team followed it up with a small change to their diffuser gurney / Y150 extension under the crash structure.  As you can see the new gurney is much more refined, ditching the almost ladder inspired design from before.  The central (silver) section now merges directly with the gurney, rather than the ladder intersersecting it, whilst the outer gurney extensions have been cut angles too, rather than featuring the square edge design they previously had. 

These changes have been made in order to maximise the interaction of the diffuser, exhaust and rear wing with the V cut out now placed in the FW37's top flap requiring a reshaping of the airflow structures below.
