Same car but different colours .I think that Super Aguri gives us a great opportunity to look closer at RA107's rear where black colour shadowed every detail . ( diffuser , rear fins , rear suspension joints , rear winglets etc) .
Well the black one is the 1st version of RA107 and the white one is the Frycar/B-spec or whatever... at a glance: different front and rear wings, T-wings, chimneys, podvanes, sidepods, ears, airbox...bar555 wrote:SUPER AGURI TESTING RA07

"It's really frustrating," he told Nigel Roebuck of Autosport, "because these cars are completely different to what I was driving in 1994, when I was last in F1."
"When I first competed in CART," he continued, "the cars were heavier than the ones I'd been driving in F1, but basically they had the same character. Now, coming back to F1 I find the cars totally changed. They're tricky, and they require a different driving style. My instinct is to carry speed into, and through, the corner, but you can't really do that with these cars; what you must do is brake really late, turn in somehow, and then get on the power as soon as you can."
He explained it a different way: "I hit the curves with a lot of speed, that's my problem. The current tyres don't skid as easily into the curves but they build up a lot of power in the direction of the wheels. So you have to hit the brakes hard, firing the car into the curve, and then - bang! Hit the gas again. I prefer to drive more like Alain Prost: gentle, but always at the very limit. The way they are now, I hate these cars. With these cars I can't do all the things I'm used to doing."
But, before the 1999 season began, Zanardi knew that the challenge was his to overcome. "I guess it's a matter of getting used to new sensations," he told Roebuck, "and it'll take me a bit of time to set my new limits. Right now I'm flat out - I'm driving the best that I can - and I'm not fast enough. I'm working on it...
