Williams arrive in Monza knowing they already have quite a 'slippy' car having chosen a more efficient design than some of their counterparts this year (Sacrificing peak downforce).  However Monza offers the teams a challenge like no other circuit and so the team arrive with a minor adjustment to their front wing.
The upper most flap of the stack has been cut back, reducing the net downforce the wing will produce, but still provide the innermost edge that assists in generating the Y250 vortex.  The shorter chord of the upper flap will of course affect flow longitudinally, affecting things like tyre wake and flow around the sidepods.  All of which should give a small decrease in drag.
Note: The drivers opted for the fuller (regular) flaps for qualifying/race day
