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.

  1. Could you tell me what’s “burn out”?


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.
