potted in the Barcelona garage were radical wing mirrors which for the first time are mounted on the Ferrari halo – as allowed by the regulations post-China.

The FIA announced between the Chinese and Azerbaijan Grands Prix that henceforth mirrors could be mounted on the halo – in order to improve visibility for the driver.

Ferrari aerodynamicists have been especially quick to exploit this. The angle of the winglet implies that it redirects some of the upward wash (created from the air hitting the front of the car) downwards.
