S on Wednesday there was a lot of activity in the paddock in Barcelona. For the traditional European kick-off, the ten teams brought their large motorhomes with them for the first time this year. The team temples that were mothballed in winter had to be thoroughly wiped out before their gates were opened to guests for the first time on Thursday.
But there was also a lot going on in the pit lane. Behind the partitions one could still hear the hand grinders roaring everywhere. The traditionally lavish Barcelona upgrade packages had to be made to match on site so that the technology puzzle ultimately creates a coherent picture. The carbon stove does not always spit out the parts so perfectly shaped that they fit in seamlessly.
Front wing analysis in detail
Unfortunately, we still have a lot of the new parts on Wednesday not get to see. Only Toro Rosso revealed a new front wing version. But on Thursday at the technical inspection we expect a lot more interesting parts. We still fondly remember the previous year, when Ferrari transformed its exterior mirrors into wing elements for the Spanish Grand Prix.
After all, due to lack of space, some teams had their bulky cladding parts and front wings in front of the garages on Wednesday so that you could take a look at them. The aerodynamically efficient temperature sensor on the Renault wing in particular is worth a closer look.
AMG GT 4-door in safety car look
Mercedes had something for fans of fast street cars Special to offer. The Stuttgart car manufacturer wrapped several AMG models in the well-known for the Spanish GPSafety car look. Especially the AMG GT 4-door in the 63S variant cuts a very good figure in the silver-black F1 paintwork. If you need even more interior space on the racetrack, you should take a look at the AMG E53.
