We’ve reached the mid-season break in this year’s F1 campaign, but there’s still plenty of juicy technical topics for host Edd Straw and former F1 technical director Gary Anderson to dig into.

First up, they cast an eye over the Hungarian Grand Prix, where Aston Martin caught the eye when they unveiled their paradigm-shifting rear wing endplates. Gary gives his view on why Aston have taken this development direction, and whether it complies with the spirit of the regulations.

The duo also discuss Ferrari’s strategic decisions in the race, and on what data the team were basing their decisions on, especially with rivals Red Bull seemingly getting all the big calls right.

The development progress of the two leading championship protagonists is also discussed in Edd and Gary’s mid-season technical review, which rounds up how Red Bull, Ferrari and Mercedes have progressed with their cars this year, especially having embraced such different design approaches.

And finally Gary answers a listener question on whether the cleaner racing we’re seeing on track in 2022 can be attributed to the revised technical regulations.
