Head of the technical Department of the Red Bull Adrian Newey cautiously assess the prospects of the team after the change of the technical regulations.
Many believe that enhancing the role aerodynamics play into the hands of RBR, but the British guru is not in a hurry to draw conclusions.
“Undoubtedly, still plays a major role engine – quoted Newey, Sky Sports F1. The situation remained the same: 1% of engine power gives one tenth of a second per lap and 1% aerodynamics about the same. Therefore, if you receive an additional 5% of the capacity of the motor, it must simultaneously allow for 5% of the effectiveness of aerodynamics to get the same results.
We know what we have achieved over the winter, but not present, coped better or worse than our competitors”.
