Ferrari copies Williams for Barcelona: invisible novelty on F1-75

On the basis of what Williams has done, Ferrari for the next Formula 1 Spanish GP in Barcelona intends to bring a further novelty to the F1-75s of Leclerc and Sainz in addition to the first package of updates and the high-load rear wing. . However, this will not be visible to the naked eye.

After the two clear victories of Max Verstappen and Red Bull in Imola and Miami, the Ferrari he wants to compete for success again starting from the next one Spanish GP in Barcelona. For the sixth stage of the Formula 1 World Championship 2022 the Cavallino will bring the first real package of updates for the F1-75s of Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz which should therefore improve the performance of the reds who, by admission of team principal Mattia Binotto, in the last two races have paid two tenths per lap compared to the single-seaters of the Austrian team.

But not only. The Maranello team seems willing to contribute another novelty to its cars in view of the Spanish Grand Prix scheduled on the Montmelò circuit from 20 to 22 May. A improvement which however will not be visible to the naked eye but that should lighten the F1-75 by almost a kilogram.

Following Williams’ example in fact, in order to comply with the parameters of the minimum weight allowed by the regulation (brought to 798 kg by the FIA ​​after the request of almost all the teams), for the Catalan F1 weekend, Ferrari should remove a layer of paint from the two cars thus reducing their weight by over 700 grams each. Unlike the cars of the British team driven by Albon and Latifi (in which in some places the paint has been completely removed so as to make the carbon fiber of which they are made visible), this scraping operation on the F1-75 will be almost imperceptible at first glance since, being a layer of completely transparent varnishwill not go to affect the color of the livery of the two cars that will only appear less bright compared to that shown in the first five races of the season.

Hamilton never in Ferrari in F1, Sainz also closes the last door: “It’s incredible”

This therefore thefurther news that Ferrari should bring on its single-seaters in Barcelona together with the first package of updates and the high downforce rear wing essential on a track like the Catalan one that will host the sixth round of the 2022 Formula 1 World Championship. In Maranello, therefore, nothing is left to chance in order to return to compete on par with Red Bull again for victory.
