Ferrari, chasing Red Bull hard for second in the standings, trialled a new updated aero package on the SF16-H during opening practice in Malaysia, no doubt with the upcoming Japanese race in mind. The drawing above shows the addition of a ‘batman’ wing (left arrow) just behind the front suspension, similar to the one introduced in Austin last year, and longer vertical fins (right arrow) along the edge of the T-tray. This was used in practice only: for qualifying and the race the team reverted to the standard solution shown below, with a vertical, V-shaped fin under the chassis (top arrow) and shorter vertical fins (bottom arrow) on the T-tray.
