Quite difficult to see on this picture, but apparently looks like they've changed front wing concept

More inboard loaded ala Ferrari

Slick packaging, considering that they still have the front suspension arms as high as possible (to allow the Y250 vortex to get as strong as possible & maximize airflow to the bargeboard area), you need to take that into account!
... Also, Ferrari-style front wing?

It's the FW they had at the end of last year which dips a touch near the endplate.
