The last day of tests in Barcelona left us some news of importance in the cars of the grill. Slowly, the teams begin to search for an improvement of the performance of the car, the whole time that the preliminary analysis and the data collection has been completed for the second week of workouts.

Surely the most eye-catching was that Renault introduced on his rear wing during the day of late with Jolyon Palmer at the wheel. The secondary level -which is activated by the DRS- has gained altitude to fly above the top end of the endplates, thereby increasing the depth of the V central. In addition, the sides of that plane are now curved.

taking Advantage of the circumstance, it is worth mentioning the pylon central which connects with the mechanism of the DRS, in the case of Renault for the top (red arrow) and not by the bottom (green arrow) as in the rest of the teams. This is something that the French brand will have to change at the request of the FIA, as it is considered illegal because it does not connect to the plane’s main wing for any point.

Toro Rosso has also made changes in his bonnet, specifically in the cooling slits on the back. The body’s initial staff consisted of a single body decreasing towards the sides. The modification further includes two openings additional to each side and the plant has grown along the entire extension to allow you to breathe more easily to the engine and the rest of the internal elements of the car.

Finally, it is worth noting that Mercedes seems to have decided that the configuration of T-Wing double no shark’s fin is the one that works best, as it has been used for three days in a row. In addition, the German team proved it in the day on Thursday, a new monkey-seat, a simple substitution of the double that I had been testing with before.

it Is hoped that the next week they arrive numerous modifications, because many of the updates that you intend to use at the first Grand Prix of the season will have to be validated with previously.
