Formula 1's governing body, the FIA, have confirmed the updates brought by teams to this weekend's Australian Grand Prix.

Early 2022 pace-setters Ferrari and Red Bull are both taking the opportunity to run new parts, but Mercedes - having struggled for pace in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia - will compete with an unchanged car.

World Championship leaders Ferrari will trial a new diffuser, alongside their planned front wing sensor tests around the modified Albert Park Circuit. Red Bull, meanwhile, have a new front wing endplate.

Mercedes have no updates, with an updated floor expected at the next round in Imola, before an evolved aerodynamic package arrives in Spain.

What about the other F1 teams?

As for the other teams, Williams have a new beam wing, floor edge, front wing and front brake ducts, and Alpine new floor fences and a modified rear brake drum.

Haas will run an upgraded diffuser, McLaren revised winglets on the rear corner of their car and Aston Martin a new rear wing.

Alfa Romeo and AlphaTauri are the other teams with no upgrades in Melbourne.
