Dutch Grand Prix 2023

Red Bull and Mercedes Dutch GP upgrades revealed

A number of teams have added updates to their cars for the Zandvoort weekend.

Red Bull and Mercedes headline the teams fitting upgrades to their cars at the Dutch Grand Prix.

The top two in the Constructors' standings are joined by Aston Martin, Haas and AlphaTauri in bringing changes to the cars, whilst McLaren has added circuit-specific updates to the MCL60.

Red Bull has added a new beam wing to improve local load at the rear of the car as it continues to press home its advantage over the field.

Mercedes has also added a new beam wing, as well as a change in inboard mirror stay geometry atop the sidepod inlet to improve flow conditioning.

That is also the reason for the change to the forward floor edge wing as the Brackley-based outfit searches for rear downforce.

Aston Martin has introduced a raft of upgrades in the search for increased floor-generated load.

The lower surface of the floor has been modified to change the volume underneath, while the floor fences have been reshaped to marry with the main alteration.

The floor egde has also been modified to better marry with the new floor body, whilst the diffuser has been modified to change the lower surface volume, with a new winglet also added.

AlphaTauri has updated its rear wing endplates in the quest for better efficiency, whilst Haas has 'entirely revisited' the front wing to find a significant improvement in the flow released behind the wing.

The American-owned outfit has introduced a circuit-specific brake-cooling update, whilst McLaren has brought a new rear wing and beam wing assembly to cover a drag range 'suitable' for Zandvoort.
