Only one photo, but presence of rake angle is shown at plank-ground interface:

Without lap context it's just a lovely picture. If under hard braking, that rake would not be as found when running in less extreme situations.

It is a bit early to read too much in to it but it is interesting the the Blue and Red Cars are still pretty fast while the silver one seems to be slower.

So does this mean it was Mercedes with the floor trickery? What theory will they push next?

I have a feeling next years going to hurt Mercedes’ even more with the floor edge increase after looking at their floor today being so close to the floor.

It’s a HUGE gap in quali from max to sainz. (Spa)

Red Bull vast experience with running the floor a long way from the ground might be beneficial with the formula being rebalanced slightly.
But that's speculation.

You can just as easily say, that the height next year is closest to the height Mercedes has been driving for years.

Mercedes has been running their floor as low as possible and most of the time scrapping on the ground. Even this year, in search of performance, they have been running it lower than anyone else. They even put floor stays to hold it back from scraping too low. Next year, it's just that outer edge of floor that would be raised by 15mm. Again, Red Bull have been the masters of sealing the floor edges when they were running high rake and even this year they run it higher than Mercedes. So there is a good argument to say, it might hurt Mercedes next year if the floor edges raise whereas Red Bull manages to seal the floor better.
