Despite the fact that both pilots Force India has consistently finished in the top ten in the first three races of the new season, the team is still disappointed with the pace of his car.
“We know what the problem is: the tests in Barcelona, Andy [green, technical Director] and the team identified a discrepancy in the correlation data of a wind tunnel with the results on the track, – quotes AUTOSPORT.com Fearnley. – We found the cause of the problem and developed a plan to address them.
We are now in the process of manufacturing parts. I hope that we’ll install everything you need on the car in Barcelona, which will allow us to track already to attack, not defend.
The problem lies in the aerodynamic platform of the car. Its essence is that if you change one thing, it affects other areas of the platform, and have to adjust all areas. New bottom and other details will be available to us in Barcelona.
This major update is intended to solve other problems that we have identified are still on the tests in Barcelona.
Pilots complain of instability of the vehicle and the loss of pace in the mid speed corners due to the fact that the downforce is there, it is lost.
In Bahrain, these issues emerged very clearly. I think that in Russia the situation is similar. Before Sochi we will not have time to resolve these issues, but may be able to soften a little”.
