Team-Lotus will race with new rear wing for Brazilian GP; they are toughly tried to enter Q2 in season final race at Brazil. Team-Lotus Chief Technical Officer, Mike Gascoyne says that we are bringing a new rear wing to Brazil.
“Our progress on track has been clear to see and another sign of our ongoing development this year is the fact we are bringing a new rear wing to Brazil,” Gascoyne said. “Our race pace has been good all season, but we have not been able to match that in qualifying, and the update to the rear wing is designed to help us do that by improving the efficiency of our DRS system.
“In simple terms, because DRS can be used anywhere on track in qualifying our performances in Q1 have not matched our race performances where DRS usage is limited, and bringing a new wing that gives us more downforce and improves the efficiency of the system should see us being able to close the gap in qualifying to the cars ahead compared to the previous races.”
“Last year we had stopped development on the T127 halfway through the season and this year we have new parts right up to the final race and that is how we will be operating next year and for many seasons to come.”
