In the last couple of race weekends, Ferrari was quicker in the corners, but Red Bull made the difference at the end of the straights. The Scuderia wants to break this trend line and that includes, first of all, a low downforce package. FIA documents for technical press review show that Ferrari has announced it will be bringing a new rear wing to the Miami International Autodrome. It is a lower drag (drag) specification and is intended to allow for a higher top speed on the three long straights.
The introduction of this wing is said to be from Motorsport.com coincide with an engine change, which was also confirmed by the FIA on Friday. During the first free practice session, the motorsport association officially announced that five of the six Ferrari-powered cars have opted for a new power source. Valtteri Bottas, Guanyu Zhou (both Alfa Romeo), Kevin Magnussen and Mick Schumacher (both Haas) can count on a new engine. The Ferrari factory team has simply decided not to switch with Carlos Sainz.
As I said, this happened to world championship leader Charles Leclerc, although it has nothing to do with reliability. According to the team, the Ferrari engine must be able to last at least six race weekends so that the first engine can simply start again Swimming pool and can be used at a later time. Substitution is primarily a tactical move. Ferrari want to give Leclerc the extra power of a new power source at a track where she could be very useful. Ferrari replaced the internal combustion engine (of course with the same specification), the MGU-H, the MGU-K and the exhaust system for the first-ever Miami Grand Prix.
No engine components were replaced at main competitor Red Bull Racing.
