Technical innovation is what makes Formula 1 so different from any other form of racing. The on track action is as much played out by the engineers and aerodynamicists as it is the drivers. We are here to admire, study, and discuss this beauty that exists on the ragged edge of what we think is possible, or at least what we thought was possible.

Discussions and questions are welcomed and encouraged in the comments section below. I try not to repeat thing’s I’ve pointed out previously, but if you’d like to discuss something then go for it!

Red Bull have arrived in Singapore with a copy (that Seb also noticed and pointed out after Quali) of Ferrari’s outer sidepod bargeboards.

Force India VJM10

What is this, Time Attack? I count 6 elements on Force India’s T-wing.

Force India have also arrived with a spine of tiny vanes running the length of their shark fin. These vanes all seem to be directing the wind down, so wouldn’t that just increase lift? I believe these vanes energize the cleaner air down to be worked by their heavy-set T-wing shown above
