Ferrari has introduced a front-wing upgrade for this weekend's French Grand Prix, as it seeks to cut its deficit to the dominant Mercedes team.
The Italian outfit is one of a handful to have followed the 'outwash' development path – Mercedes meanwhile has a more traditional front-wing – which means the team are trying to force outer airflow around the front tyre by running a shallow front-wing.
The old-spec wing (below) features a deeper curve where the front elements are positioned low before rising up closer to the tyre. The endplate is also straight, which creates a narrower channel for the airflow to escape.
The new front-wing (below), is a more extreme concept following the same philosophy. It features a much shallower curve, with the last two elements lowered significantly. The endplate now features a small cut-out, opening up the gap between the wing and tyre, allowing for more airflow to escape.
