GP Week : Issue 99
Hamilton himself, while supporting road safety plans, says he's staunchly against such a move: "What we do in our private life is our private life. I'm sure Jean Todt has had a speeding ticket," said the 2008 world champion. "We're all making mistakes and learning. I don't feel that everything I've worked for should be taken away from me for something that could be small," he added. But McLaren team-mate Jenson Button disagrees: "I think a serious offence is correct for it to cause an issue for your racing career," said the 30-year-old. om now on eration car THE GP2 Series organizers took the wraps off their latest third-generation car, the GP2/11, in Monza on Thursday. It takes several obvious aerodynamic cues from current F1 machinery, such as a raked nose, wider front wing, narrow rear wing, and an anvil engine cover. But technical director Didier Perrin says the biggest change is the enlarged diffuser, which will have a significant impact on set-up: "As the diffuser works across a much wider ride-height range, there will be the possibility to play with much softer rear suspension to improve the traction," said the Frenchman. "We wanted was to be as close as possible to F1 in terms of behaviour so we decided to use the same type of rear wing -- narrower, and a bit forward. We have lost a lot of downforce from the rear of the car, and to recover that we had to do a lot of work on the diffuser. And to get more room to play with the diffuser, we moved the exhaust on top of the gearbox. So that gives you the configuration of the rear of the car. "And to balance this big downforce that we obtained from the diffuser we had to go with a large, F1-style wing." The car will next be tested in Jerez with 2008 champion Giorgio Pantano at the helm.
