Renault has installed a platform on the front wing to assess the level of stress and bending experienced by the wing. Meanwhile, high-speed cameras look at the stickers placed on the endplate to further correlate the data.

A great photo of the Mercedes W10, showing many updates tested by the team during the second event, including (but not limited to) the vanity panel horns, the new fins of chassis, revised barges, halo winglets, streamlined flanks and vertical flaps on the edge of the ground.

As a comparison with the Mercedes, here is a similar image of the Ferrari SF90, but note also how the Scuderia is once again testing the design of the winged rear wheel, also presented for the first time at Mercedes.

The Flo-viz paint on the front fender, the sidepods and the floor is used by McLaren to evaluate the existing air circulation structures. She will be photographed and studied at the factory.

A large group of kiel probes were also mounted on the side of the MCL34 to collect data on the airflow flowing on the sides of the cars.

The Kiel sensor groups mounted behind the front wheels of the Ferrari SF90 measure how the airflow is displaced by the wake of the front wheel. Also note the center posts that place three kiel probes in a much higher position, in order to understand the impact of the turbulence created by the front wheel on the shoulder of the sidepod.

This photo of the Red Bull RB15 shows how the furniture surrounding the mirror case is separated, allowing for a smoother transition of airflow around the case.

These unpublished fins on the Alfa Romeo C38 chassis front and transition deck contribute to the formation of airflow in this region and the redefinition of its direction.

Close-up view of Williams' front wing solution, with notch cut into the back of the nose plate and aggressive angle shutter adjuster. Note also the presence of the slot in the uprights of the front wing, a design feature postponed from last year but deserves to be underlined.

A nice photo from the back of the Alfa Romeo C38 shows the curvature of its T-wing, which will not only produce a real support force, but will also help improve the performance of downstream components .

A beautiful view of the Renault RS19 from behind shows their rear wing, which features not only a large main flap and a top flap, but also a clever treatment of the transition zone, creating not only side strakes, but also more fins sweet.
