The Aston Martin AMR22 is fitted with a large kiel sounding rake between the front wheel assembly and the sidepods so the team can collect airflow data during practice.

The rear floor section of the Red Bull RB18 is again different on the two cars, with Perez opting for the cutout and tongue-shaped fender extension, pictured here, while Verstappen has the simple version.

A close up of the rear wing flap and endplate junction on the Red Bull RB18, note the Gurney flap on the trailing edge of the upper flap breaks off in line with the flap pivot, rather than the edge of the pane.

Williams also has a new front wing design available this weekend, with the outer portion of the two upper flaps adjusted where they meet the endplate. The changes will likely improve the kite’s washout capability and result in an improved downstream flow regime.

Alfa Romeo has a new rear brake duct deflector for this race which has been reshaped to improve flow along and into the diffuser. The design of the upper part of the deflector fence is already somewhat contrary to that of its rivals, with an interesting recessed section in which another control vane resides.

AlphaTauri’s test mirrors were also a variation of the design it uses in 2022, with the main body and fin passing over the extended top.

Aston Martin is again using the rear wing design which features the high, rolled endplate design on a circuit that requires more of a high downforce setup, having introduced it in Hungary but returned to a weaker downforce configuration otherwise in Belgium.
