Red Bull has had to modify the design of the floor of its 2010 car in order to comply with stricter flexibility tests debuting at Monza this weekend.
Although it is Red Bull’s allegedly flexing car primarily in the spotlight, McLaren admitted last week that it – alongside most other teams – will have to run more a more rigid floor from now on.
And a look up and down pitlane at Monza show that McLaren’s prediction is right, with many cars either featuring visibly sturdier front floors, or additional ‘stays’ to prevent them from bending at high speed.
And Red Bull team boss Christian Horner confirmed that the RB6 is featuring “small changes to the underbody” at Monza.
He added: “I would be surprised if this affects our performance in any way.”
