A close up of the additional metal support that Mercedes has added to the center section of the car in Canada. This is permitted following the introduction of a new technical directive from the FIA ​​which allows a third support to be used on each side of the car to help reduce porpoising (teams were able to use one near the gearbox). gears for years and a second became allowed before the start of the season).

From the side view we can see how Ferrari prepared and manufactured the wing so specs could be mixed and matched to keep costs down (see the closed lines just above the beam wing and the connecting straps between the two sections).
