Here are the technical innovations of Ferrari compared to Spa, for the 2022 Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix
September 2, 2022
THEThe Dutch track does not have long straights but many curves in succession and is more tortuous than the Belgian track where it was raced last Sunday. Here it is necessary to make the single-seaters adopt higher load aerodynamic solutions. All single-seaters have much heavier rear wings than those used in Belgium. Also there Ferrari uses a high downforce spoon rear wing (see A). In the comparison drawing the wing of Zandvoort and that of Spa.
Land the characteristics of the track brought the red car back to the top of the first free practice sessions, a sign that the Ferrari with a higher load it works better. Small news of micro aerodynamics on the red for the rear-view mirrors. The two small vertical fins positioned below and on the sides of the mirrors have been eliminated, now it has only the vertical pillar that anchor them to the bellies (see B).
