GP Week : Issue 43
> F1NEWS> back? Diffuser race in full swing team, they know very well that four races is very little. We’ve got a lot of races to go until the end of the championship, so we need to develop the car, get better and I can see already some signs of improvement from other teams. “If you look at these races, there are some teams that made quite a bit step compared to the first two races, so I definitely expect a big fight during the season and I also expect quite a mix of leading cars and teams during all the races. This is nice, it’s nice for everyone. I was on pole, Sebastian won the last race and obviously the most consistent car and driver at the moment is Jenson with the Brawn but also Toyota and Williams are doing well, Red Bull but there are some teams which are really getting close, so we need to keep pushing.” may not forget the teams ...

Renault turned up to Bahrain with new diffusers fitted to both their R29s, having only run the technology on the car of Fernando Alonso in China, and recorded seventh place in the race with Alonso, while Nelson Piquet had his best race of the season to come home ninth. Force India also had a new diffuser, with an interim version of the device in place on both their cars and also ran a new front wing, while Williams had new aero developments on Nico Rosberg’s car. Ferrari is expected to have a new diffuser in place at the next Grand Prix in Spain, while Red Bull’s is expected to see the light of day in Monaco. Meanwhile, BMW revealed to GPWeek that it would feature a bold development of its car in Barcelona, with Team Manager beat Zehnder confirming it would be “quite a different car.” Three-time 2009 race winners Brawn are also expected to bring a major modification to their BGP01 to Barcelona, with all new sidepods the major feature of its upgrade package to improve oil cooling. Give me more wings: Vettel and co will have to wait until Monaco before they get a DDD. Sebastian Vettel is watching his mirrors
