Technical innovations presented by teams in Canada

Before the start of the race weekend in Montreal, seven teams reported on the technical innovations prepared for this stage of the World Championship.

Red Bull racing

The RB20 has a new rear wing, where the geometry of the moving element has been changed. This is done to increase the aerodynamic efficiency of the wing and improve its stability.

Certain changes have also taken place at the front of the car: larger air ducts for the front brakes have been installed there, which is due to the peculiarities of the Montreal circuit, where the braking intensity is high, so it is necessary to maintain the necessary level guaranteeing the cooling of the braking system components.

Mercedes

In the Mercedes car, the geometry of the front suspension has been modified: the relative position of the steering rod and the lower triangular arm has been changed. This is done to optimize the airflow coming from the front fender and directed to the underside of the car.

The W15 also features larger front brake air intakes to improve brake disc cooling.

Aston Martin

The AMR24 has been upgraded with an additional rear wing, which has been done to improve the efficiency of the aerodynamic components. in this part of the car.

Williams

Alex Albon and Logan Sargent’s cars have had both front and rear suspension improvements, which Williams engineers say will increase the mechanical grip of the chassis. In particular, a new link has appeared in the rear suspension of the FW46 – the geometry of this element has not changed, but you can adjust the ride height within slightly larger limits.

It also weighs less, with the Grove team making serious efforts to reduce the weight of the overall chassis.

Visa RB

The team from Faenza presented a new rear wing, with a modified profile of the upper element. This would be a further development of the previous design and provides more efficient downforce generation without increasing drag, which is especially important on a track like Canada’s.

The changes also affected the front wing, changing the geometry of the adjustable element; this became slightly smaller, which was done specifically on this section for a more balanced distribution of the aerodynamic load between the front and rear wings.

Sauber

On the Swiss team’s cars, the geometry of both the main plane and the adjustable plane of the rear wing have been changed in accordance with the characteristics of the Canadian Grand Prix circuit, where the aerodynamic body kit has been adapted to a relatively low level of downforce.

The wing end plates have been redesigned and the optional rear wing has been redesigned, improving the aerodynamic efficiency of the vehicle.

Hare

The VF-24 has a new, adjustable front fender element that suits the Montreal circuit.

Ferrari, McLaren and Alpine did not announce any technical innovations.
