Among the rule changes for 2021 ratified by the FIA’s World Motor Sport Council on Wednesday is a reduction in aerodynamic testing determined by a team’s finishing position in the Constructors’ standings.
In short, the higher a team finishes in the championship, the less windtunnel time they will enjoy relative to their rivals.
On paper, at the start of the 2021 season, a baseline 40 windtunnel sessions shall be allocated to all teams, with an outfit’s final number depending on its 2020 championship position.

The title-winning team will be awarded 90% of the 40-run number, with the quota increasing in a linear way by 2.5% all the way down to the tenth and last team in the Constructors’ standings.
If the new regulation had been applied to 2020 based on the 2019 championship, Mercedes would have been allocated 36 runs in its windtunnel while Williams, at the other end of the standings, would have been given 45 windtunnel sessions.
