Four teams bringing updates to Dutch Grand Prix

While the top three teams are using the same packages as at Spa, four teams further down the grid are bringing updates to Zandvoort.

Red Bull, Ferrari and Mercedes have all arrived at Zandvoort with exactly the same packages they had last weekend at Spa, with none of the three teams bringing any updates. On Thursday, the teams are required to present their cars to the FIA, with a spokesperson for each team notifying the governing body of updates. While teams may elect to run a higher downforce setting, necessitating the use of a different setup of rear wing (main picture), this is not necessarily an update, if such a wing has previously been used this season. Only Alpine, AlphaTauri, Williams and Alfa Romeo have included updates, albeit minor ones. Alfa Romeo has modified the shape of the brake ducts at the rear with the aim of directing more air towards the diffuser. Alpine have arrived and Zandvoort with slightly modified front and rear wings for more downforce and less drag, while AlphaTauri have an updated rear wing for the same purpose. The update to Williams is the smallest. The Grove-based squad have slightly modified their front wing endplates in order to improve the balance at the front of the car.
