Pat Symonds consultant Marussia Racing (Virgin Racing), says that ban blown diffuser, it will be helps back-runners to more aggressive in F1.
“The major change for 2012 is the fact the blown diffuser is going away,” said Symonds at the Autosport International Show. For small teams like ours that is not a bad thing. It was difficult to understand and make work, and the new regulations make things a little bit easier.
“Marussia in total employs about 170 people – compared to about 650 for Red Bull and 550 for Lotus and Mercedes. It’s an enormous challenge, and we have a mountain to climb, but there is so much good spirit and ambition and I’m thoroughly enjoying it.”
“Our alliance with McLaren is also a good thing. It was obvious we had to do something different; that we weren’t going to achieve the timescales required without doing that. McLaren will not be an instant [change in form] but it will maybe make us faster.”
