Straightline speed performance is essential, even if it means that life can be a bit tricky through the chicanes. It sets the scene for the most outrageously low downforce rear wings you’ll see all season. In fact, for the most part, they’re designed specifically for the famed ‘temple of speed’ and instantly become obsolete after the race. Dueling duo Punching a hole in the air is ... ...

Like sister team Red Bull, Toro Rosso has been well aware that the power deficit it suffers means it has to do all it can with its wings to try to help boost its straightline speed performance. While it did not go as aggressive as Red Bull in terms of the levels of downforce it ran at Monza, the team again opted for a unique DRS design element that has played a key part in helping keep it in ... ...

Ferrari has a slight power advantage at the moment, and its performance has been further boosted by an energy deployment characteristic that allows it to accelerate much better out of corners. That speed edge in the early phase of straights prompted questions from Mercedes earlier this year about the legality of Ferrari’s double battery system, but the FIA has given the Italian team the ... ...

The sweeps of Silverstone make it one of the fastest tracks on the F1 calendar, with the quick right-handers of Abbey at the start of the lap and Copse now flat out thanks to higher-downforce cars and a resurfaced track. Magnussen’s Haas team has been potent in high-speed corners this season but said there is less advantage to be gained in those areas of the British GP track ...

Progress for McLaren has been slow going this year, as the team has struggled to understand an issue that doesn’t translate the performance it is seeing on its simulation data (CFD/windtunnel) to what it is experiencing on track.In recent races, this has led the Woking-based outfit to experiment with different aerodynamic configurations during free practice sessions as it tries to ...
