The pilot of McLaren Fernando Alonso believes that under the new rules in the 2017 season factor the skill of the racer will be offset.
“I believe that all of these technologies in the field of aerodynamics and power plants make less significant the factor of pilot – confessed two-time world champion. – With this level of drag you need a lot of power. And with such high levels of downforce you will also need a good collection system and deployment of energy because the straight will be longer this year.
Some of the turns will disappear and will run at full throttle. If last year you were 20 horsepower and could lose on this 0.2 or 0.3 seconds, then in 2017 you will lose 0.5 seconds.
The importance of some of the technical aspects of the car in 2017 will be higher than in 2016, so the racers won’t be able to do miracles on the track.
On the other hand, pilots will be able to play for some time due to his style of driving. Sometimes in 2016 and it happens: the slower you go, the better for you because you keep the rubber and prolong the racing line”.
