F1 technical gallery: the team changes for Great Britain

Enjoy the images and their explanation, below

It is clear that Mercedes has redesigned the front wing endplate for the British Grand Prix, with a higher position than it previously occupied.

Ferrari have made changes to their mirror housings for Silverstone, following the ideas of others who have applied the regulations in such a way that a definite aerodynamic advantage has been achieved. In the case of the Italians, they have positioned the outer bracket closer to the center line of the car and added two fins below the main mirror assembly in order to achieve better airflow.

Alpine is one of the teams that has already modified their sidepods this season and has yet to test more changes this weekend. The pontoon’s upper bodywork has adopted the hollowed-out type that Ferrari has employed in the F1-75 since the start of the season. And, like those from Maranello, the French team has cooling gills contoured within the surface to not only help reject the heat that is generated, but to improve aerodynamics.

There are more details that can be seen in the same image, as the engine cover has also been significantly modified. The A522 now has rounded shapes that create a step for the airflow to follow behind the Halo , a solution that is very similar to what we have already seen from AlphaTauri and Mercedes. In the case of Alpine, the engine cover outlet at the rear has also been flattened, taking advantage of the new wing layout.

The change is similar at Red Bull, as it has also moved to a design that raises the engine hood outlet, creating a greater cutout under the hood and side bodywork.

Underneath the Williams FW44 we can see some of the changes to Alex Albon ‘s car, with the arrangement of two coolers on the power unit changed to just one.

What appears to be a different arrangement within the Mercedes W13’s front brake drum with new pipes fitted to help channel cold air in and heat out in different ways.

Likewise, a picture of the side bodywork of the Red Bull RB18 showing how the different coolers line up.

So is the brake drum on the Red Bull RB18, where we can see that the team has added a heat treatment to the disc cover to further aid heat management.

The view from the other side of the unmounted brake drum reveals how the team is channeling airflow into the part to manage the heat that is generated.

Here we can see the modular design of the F1-75, with the radiator intake installed on one side of the car and not the other. This was done so that if extra performance was found, making changes would be much easier.

Another shot, now with the pontoon’s front body and inlet installed, showing how much space it takes up.

For comparison, we have the front brakes of the Ferrari F1-75, which do not have a brake cover to help manage temperatures.

The rear brakes of the MCL36 also have a cover, although less large due to the fact that those at the rear of the car are smaller, since more of the braking comes from the MGU-K .

For comparison, this is the Williams FW44 rear brake layout, with only the top of the disc covered.
