McLaren’s front brake duct assembly has two new inlets amongst an array of fins this season that help feed airflow through the assembly for aerodynamic gain. It’s a similar arrangement to the one used by Mercedes last season but McLaren has now inverted its brake duct shape for a similar effect.

Ferrari trialled a new floor during Free Practice that featured the Z-Shaped cutout that some rivals have been using throughout the opening phase of the season. The cutout is paired with a new strake, while the trio of fins midway down the floor have been removed.

Mercedes made a modification to the diffuser for the second race of the season, altering the shape of one of the vertical stakes (highlighted in green). As you can see L-Shaped strake has been replaced by a full-length version.

The aerial view of the Aston Martin AMR21 shows just how much of the floor the team has cut away in order to alter the angle of the floor. You’ll also note the floor is contoured to further invoke the aerodynamic effect it’s looking for.

Aston Martin has new sidepod bodywork and new wing mirrors stalks for the AMR21 at Imola, as it looks to reduce the size of the inlets and improve aerodynamic performance.
