After the Spanish Grand Prix, we looked at how the new sidepods of Ferrari’s Barcelona upgrade were all about trying to give the car more consistent downforce at high speeds, a key weakness up until that point. Two races later, Ferrari have produced a new front wing and floor to further improve that aspect of the car.

Although the Barcelona and Spielberg updates address quite different parts of the car, they are part of the same specific aim of improving high-speed rear stability. They are addressing a shortfall rather than simply adding downforce or reducing drag.
