Analysis: The aero tweaks accompanying Ferrari’s new power unit | F1 technology

With the control electronics problems fixed, Ferrari clearly have a very powerful engine.
It also allows Ferrari to run more downforce if it wants to use up some of its straight-line advantage, but this isn’t helping them win races.
Ferrari have had to have the unit running continuously on its dynos to ensure the performance and reliability are there and won’t trip the team up.

These changes are less obviously related to any tyre management problems and merely adjusting the rear wing set-up to the car’s new power output and Barcelona’s long straight.
