Horner stated that their diffuser did not work optimal until the end of the summer. They discovered that there was a correlation issue with it and after the fix the car behaved perfectly, at the same time they were taking grid penalties for new components.dxpetrov wrote: ↑Wed Nov 21, 2018 11:20 amNobody noticed, but to me big break through happened in Suzuka, where they discovered that they were faster on higher downforce setup, despite previous simulations which showed medium DF to be better. Since then they relatively kept the highest possible DF levels, which is basically their optimum setup, and that helped massively to watch after rubber and be possibly the fastest team in the race, on the expense of slightly slower quali pace.
Daniel Ricciardo also doesn't know why the Red Bull has become a winning car again since three races. "Things are so complex, sport so confusing. I'm sure the engineers know the answer, but maybe they won't tell me anything anymore." Ricciardo praises the aerodynamic development, but says that there is not the one big secret that makes the Red Bull RB14 faster. Team boss Christian Horner becomes a bit clearer: "We were wrong about the diffuser development. We corrected the mistake after the summer break".
A key to the strong shape of the Red Bull is its exceptionally low tyre wear. Even the drivers are surprised: "I drove forwards in Brazil from 11th on the grid, got stuck in traffic and yet the tyres didn't suffer," says Ricciardo. Max Verstappen looks back at the Brazilian GP without regret: "I wouldn't do anything differently. For me, Ocon's manoeuvre was pointless. Two laps later his tyres would have worn off again and he would have had to let me pass again."
