GP Week : Issue 48
> F1CHAT> help you to stop a quicker car overtaking you, which is important in the race. But installing a system like KERS is not for free because it takes away your ballast it takes away your weight distribution, centre of gravity… the car mechanically is not better, it’s impossible because you lose some of the features and still have to adopt the right setting. It’s something that takes away time during set up on Friday. The rate of development this year is huge, can you catch up the gap to the front given that everyone is developing so fast? It’s the target that we have to close the gap to the leading cars. Whether we achieve it or not we will see by the end of the season. We are not giving up, this is definitely the target to close the gap completely. Is there any thought at all, or when does it become part of your thinking, to concentrate on next year? Currently we are not thinking about or discussing this scenario. OK, next year will be a different car because we have a higher amount of fuel, so a slightly different car concept, but since the aero regulations are not changing then things you learn this year you can use next year. It’s not so easy to say that you will stop this project and concentrate again next year. There’s no guarantee that will work. With the confusion over next year’s regulations, how difficult does that make things? It doesn’t make it easier, but there’s a set of regulations and even if a few elements change, the total car concept will not change. 2
