Somewhat surprisingly, in Australia Scuderia Ferrari introduced an update for the floor of the F1-75: in the rear of the red car, in fact, there was a change in the central part of the diffuser of Charles Leclerc’s single-seater.
The intention of the Maranello team is to reduce the drag of the car with a streamlining in the keel area that connects to the rear deformable structure to improve aerodynamic efficiency on a track like Albert Park which has become much faster and has four DRS zones.
Associated to this interestig update for the diffuser, the Maranello team introduced another small change: a nolder was mounted on the movable flap of the well-known spoon rear wing, but in spite of the usual one that is seen mounted in the trailing edge upper front, this time it has been cantilevered at the rear. And according to what experts say it would be a useful solution to be able to use less downforce in the rear area.
The Ferrari mechanics sprinkled the rear wing of the F1-75 with flo viz paint to understand what changes take place to the airflow with this modification designed specifically for the Australian circuit.
