Most teams have had to modify their floor designs to comply with the stricter flexibility tests being introduced at this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix.
With speculation up and down the pit lane that some teams are enjoying a particular performance advantage by dint of some underbody flexing, both Red Bull and McLaren have admitted that they have reinforced their floor designs to pass scrutineering.
Indeed, many cars up and down the pit lane seem to show sturdier front floor sections, or additional ‘staying’ devices to prevent them from flexing at high speed.
