Ferrari will use KERS during 2011 Season

Published

Ferrari will run a KERS-prepared car in each race
of 2010 season world championship, team boss Stefano Domenicali has revealed. The authentication was made after the Formula 1 teams met in Canada to talk about technical matters relating to the 2011 season.

Adjustable back wings are also set to debut in order to increase overtaking chances, and FOTA’s ban on using energy-recovering KERS systems is to lapse. Few teams including Ferrari had pressed hard to make the KERS systems much more powerful in 2011 season, but contract has instead been made to lift the minimum weight of the car-plus-driver.

As the weight handicap was careful between the problems of the KERS debut in 2009, the minimum limit will rise from 620 to 640kg next year.

“The teams have agreed on that,” Stefano confirmed.

“We would have preferred to see a solution with much more energy being available (to KERS), but unfortunately an agreement could not be found.”

It is unstated that the reason for keep on with a lower power output is that some manufacturers would have had problems settle in their existing technology. But, while it has been suggested that one more main trouble for KERS in 2009 is that the systems were voluntary to run, it has emerged that the units will not be compulsory in 2011.

Mercedes, for instance, is allowing for whether to use KERS 2011 season, even though a programme has already been initiated by the Brackley based squad with a view to a 2011 execution.

“We will make a decision (about KERS for 2011) within four to six weeks,” Ross Brawn told.
