A place to discuss the characteristics of the cars in Formula One, both current as well as historical. Laptimes, driver worshipping and team chatter does not belong here.

It was reported by motorsport that Perez is believed to get a new chassis and Hulk will have to wait. While it's still unclear whether there is any difference between the new and old chassis or it's just a standard practice getting a new chassis for European races.

Circuits like Suzuka will provide real Aero grip test of VJM09 but FI has taken a big step forward for sure. =D> =D>
