Ferrari’s big bodywork upgrade was introduced at the Spanish Grand Prix – and although the team suffered a very difficult weekend, that’s not necessarily to do with the upgrade. This was a point Carlos Sainz was keen to make after he’d faded to a fifth-place finish from a front row starting position.

“I think the upgrades are working,” he said, “but we have introduced them at maybe our worst circuit.”

This year’s Ferrari has suffered inconsistency from the rear of the car, with both drivers reporting sudden snappiness. The latest bodywork has been designed to address that, to give increased and more consistent aerodynamic loading to the rear of the car.
