Alpine’s front wing, which the team has a new spec for this weekend to suit the changes made to the rear of the car. The new spec is a slightly lower downforce option, where the wing configuration has been altered.

Alerón delantero del Williams FW44

Williams FW44 front wing

Williams also has a new front wing design this weekend, where the outside of the top two flaps are adjusted where they meet the endplate. The changes will likely improve the wing’s output capability and lead to a better flow regime downstream.

Alfa Romeo has a new rear brake duct deflector for this race, and has changed the shape to improve flow through and into the diffuser. The design of the top of the baffle fence is already somewhat different from its rivals, with an interesting spoon-shaped section where another control vane resides.
