Lewis Hamilton led a McLaren 1-2 at the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday to go to the top of the championship, after his team nailed its strategy in a race dictated by tyre degradation.Congratulation to them. So for today we will post some technical updates for some F1 teams in the latest race in Montreal, Canada.You can view again our previous post about the Technical update by click the link below.
RENAULT R30 – REVISED FRONT WING > 12 JUNE 2010.
Renault have introduced a new front wing at nearly every track this year and Montreal is no different. As the first low-downforce circuit of the year it definitely warrants a change. Only the main plane is the same as the previous wing. All other components are different – a more complex endplate with an additional vertical inner fence, a revised flap with an extra element at the rear, and no additional top flap.
FERRARI F10 – ENLARGED BRAKE DUCTS > 12 JUNE 2010.
Montreal is the toughest circuit for brakes – that’s the reason everybody is very keen to produce bigger brake ducts to improve cooling here, as you can see with this Ferrari front duct. In addition, it is critical to choose the right friction materials for the brake pads and discs in order to cope with the high levels of heat and wear. Ferrari, as is their tradition for the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, have temporarily swapped from Brembo to Carbon Industries products, as used by the likes of McLaren and Williams.
WILLIAMS FW32 – REVISED FRONT WING > 13 JUNE 2010.
Williams have introduced two new front wings in Montreal. Both feature two vertical turning vanes and are designed to boost the airflow from underneath the raised front section of the chassis (1). Each front wing has a different forward upper wing (2). On one example there was a small splitter (3) on the outside of the endplate. The team has also brought two different rear wings.
RED BULL RB6 – MODIFIED FRONT WING > 13 JUNE 2010.
Red Bull started the Canada weekend with a new front wing. It was based on the one with two openings on the endplate, which they introduced in Turkey, but featured a wider main plane and single flap. For qualifying – and for the race – they have reverted to the previous wing, which features only one opening and a slotted main plane. The team have also modified the car’s diffuser and bodywork around the exhaust area. In addition, a lot of work has been carried out to improve the cooling of the brakes.
