The varied wing approach that shows Monza remains an F1 outlier

Monza is known as the ‘Temple of Speed’ due to its unique high-speed layout with mainly straight sections. Teams have developed different downforce packages to optimize their performance at this track. Red Bull has two rear wing solutions, one with a trimmed upper flap and a removable Gurney flap, and the other with a more uniform trailing edge. Trimming the upper flap is a cost-effective approach but compromises the wing’s performance with DRS. Red Bull also uses a beam wing to balance downforce and drag levels at the rear. Mercedes has a similar low downforce, low drag rear wing and beam wing combination, with trimmed upper elements and endplate infill panels. They have also trimmed the upper edge of the infill panel to accommodate the DRS pivot. Aston Martin has a solution with a trimmed upper flap and a Gurney flap, paired with a single element beam wing. Ferrari has developed a circuit-specific rear wing design to enhance straight-line speed.
