This weekend Carlos Sainz has been working with an old nose cone and Lando Norris has tried out the new version. The novelty proved its effectiveness, and the team decided to keep it in the race.
Andreas Seidl, Team Leader: “We decided to keep the new nose cone on Lando’s car in the morning practice to use it in qualifying and racing. Carlos will continue to work with the previous version of the fairing.
This nose cone is part of a new body kit that we will be rolling out gradually. We have not yet fully evaluated its effectiveness, but it is important to collect as much data as possible – that is why we decided that the riders will compete in cars of different configurations. “
