  1. Some nice shots of the utterly useless screamer pipes, all the money the teams spend saving weight and they have to fit separate pipes from a watsegate that never opens. Do the rules get made by monkeys?

  3. Not got a clue what I'm looking at but that merc rear end suspension layout looks unusual to me for some reason!

    1. indeed they took last year concept to the extreme... and so Ferrari and in certain way Williams... the most interesting front suspension is for sure McLaren

  4. Any idea what the rain drop looking bump is on the new mclaren nose? Doesn't look like it's supposed to be there.

    1. They have used them in the past to measure wing flex, using rods, so this could be the same but using a camera/ sensors.

    2. As Siross said they used to flex cables to work it out but now they have high speed camera's looking across at dots on the endplate to see how the wing flexes under load.

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.
