WITH SO MUCH DEVELOPMENT STILL ON GOING AT THIS EARLY STAGE OF THE SEASON, HOW DIFFERENT WILL THE E20 THAT SITS ON THE GRID IN MELBOURNE BE TO THE CAR WE’VE ALREADY SEEN AT JEREZ?
The car we take to Melbourne will be significantly different to the one we ran in Jerez. There’s a lot of work still to do before the season opener, and so many elements will change; the front wing, rear wing, side pods, pod vanes, engine cover, barge board, floor, some suspension elements, and some small brake duct features to name but a few! As always, it’s going to be a very busy few weeks.

Unfortunately the F1 circuit no longer contains many high speed corners, and even fewer are important to lap time.Tozza Mazza wrote:Strangely enough Mr Grosjean has said the car 'feels' best in high speed corners. I'm hoping this teams pre-season promise becomes a reality. 2011 was too same-y.

The 'gold' on the 70's cars was a cream colour - for better contrast.fussell wrote:In relation to the cream paintwork
I have been told by a professional model maker (at a company that makes models for manufactures), the original Lotus didn't have gold paintwork, but something they called 'sign writers gold' which is a beige/cream colour. However I do think this is on the cream side, or maybe because the lines are a lot thicker?
