Prior to the first Miami Grand Prix, the FIA has verified which cars have currently undergoing upgrades.
Mercedes and Ferrari have stated that their cars would be upgraded for the Miami Grand Prix, whereas Red Bull has not.
The Silver Arrows have revised their front wing, rear wing, and beam wing, according to a report presented by the FIA before Friday’s car presentation event in the pit lane. The latter two alterations were done to largely reduce drag, according to the document.
Ferrari’s F1-rear 75’s wing has been modified, once again to reduce downforce in keeping with the Miami International Autodrome’s configuration.
Other modifications implemented in advance of the Miami Grand Prix
McLaren has also made changes to its car, including updating the front suspension and the floor edge. These modifications were made with the goal of improving performance.
Alpine has improved the rear brake drum to enhance efficiency, while Williams and Alfa Romeo have both changed the sidepod cooling louvres to fulfil the Miami venue’s cooling regulations.
Haas has also modified its rear wing by employing a reduced version of one of their standard assemblies, which they describe as a “cost effective way of adding a lower drag variant of an existing rear wing to our range.”
