Mercedes and Red Bull bring Monaco updates, none for Ferrari

The FIA have confirmed which cars have undergone changes ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix.

It has been confirmed that both Mercedes and Red Bull will bring upgrades to their cars for the Monaco Grand Prix, whilst Ferrari have not made any changes. A document released by the FIA ahead of Friday's car presentation event in the pit lane states that the Silver Arrows have updated their front wing endplate and front corner. The former aims to generate an improvement in local load, while the latter has been carried out to increase cooling flow for the brake discs and callipers, important in Monaco due to the low average speeds. Meanwhile, at Red Bull, there have been changes to the front suspension, with the revised steering geometry put in place to reach the required lock for the event. The front corner has also been modified to offer more cooling flow.

Other changes made ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix

Ferrari, Aston Martin and Alfa Romeo have not submitted any updates ahead of the Monaco race, but there have been changes made by other teams. McLaren's rear corner, front suspension and bodywork have undergone modifications, as well as the sidepod inlet, with this being done to cope with visibility challenges around the tight track. Alpine and AlphaTauri have both changed their front suspension, and AlphaTauri have additionally modified the front corner. The same two changes have been applied at Williams, and the front corner has been altered at Haas, too.
