With six races remaining in the season, Racing Point is third in the Constructors’ Championship, but is just four points ahead of McLaren and six points ahead of Renault. Technical Director Andy Green, quoted by Racefans, believes the team can maintain its current league position for the rest of the season.
Answering the question, what is needed for this, Andy Green joked: “You need to end up with bad luck and call for luck! I just want a quiet racing weekend. We could not spend the weekend without problems, probably from the first race.
At each stage, something is constantly happening. The only thing we need is to spend the rest of the season without any problems on weekends, during which we can work normally with the machine in the absence of serious distractions. Then we will have great opportunities.
We have collected all the planned updates, significantly improving the car. These are the front wing, front brake air ducts, underbody, rear wing and side pontoons end plates. All this is intended to improve aerodynamic efficiency.
The team has worked a lot with the rear behavior, on its internals so that we have more room to customize it, and also redesigned the steering. All these new items were ready in the period between the stages in Mugello and Russia.
There will be a serious fight for the third place. The three teams are constantly changing places. It will be fun until the end of the season. ”
