Ferrari adds front-wing cape and floor tweaks for Singapore
Ferrari has brought with it to Singapore a raft of upgrades which it hopes will improve the SF19's low-speed qualities, in the hope of challenging Marina Bay favourites Mercedes and Red Bull.
Although Ferrari has claimed victories at the previous two grands prix, both circuits are of a high-speed nature with long straights, which suit the SF19's straight-line speed advantage.
Singapore however is the opposite and features the most corners of any circuit on the calendar at 23, more than half of which are 90-degree turns and therefore slow-speed.
Revealed on Thursday, Ferrari's new front-wing features a cape which not only helps with additional front-end downforce, but also helps to channel air under the floor of the car.
It's a concept several teams have used this season – and last year – already, but one Ferrari has shyed away from up until this weekend.
Other changes include tweaks to the floor section ahead of the rear-wheel, with several small fins and cutouts added, and the return of the T-Wing.
Racing Point has also introduced a new front-wing this weekend, which features a shorter fifth-element (top), which compared to the previous iteration aims to reduce drag, although it could come at the cost of downforce.
