Actually, is more important to be fast in the slow ones (tracks like Monaco, Singapore, Hungaroring, Nurburgring, Canada, Abu Dhabi, China (maybe))
than in the fast (tracks like Malesya, Spain, SPA, India)
Is it? Last year the RB7 was faster than the MP4-26 in fast corners, but slower than it in slow ones.
RB7 was clearly superior as chassis, tyre management, overall grip, weight distribution ...
MP4-26 have had some tricks, and the most efficient exhaust system, this led them to win some races but their handicappated chassis (U-pods and high gearbox) finally costed them the title.
If two cars are of the same quality, the best in slow corners wins
If your claim is that the RB7 was better in the slow corners, how was the McLaren making up 0.7 seconds in the last sector at Barcelona last year, but loosing it over the high speed portion of the lap?[/quote]
You cant just use one race as your example...they were faster that race because they were the only team who could get the extremely hard prime to work, they destroyed mclaren in every sector in qually
I still think the rb was the all round superior car, monaco pole, singapore poll by large amounts etc....there were certain tracks where mclaren were at laeast as good in the slow stuff though.
As for the updates coming, i remember paddy lowe mentioning a new front wing and rear wing, can probably expect a new diffuser to, jensons comments are intresting though...it must be a mechanical change.
