Track data? Which track data? When have any of these parts been put on track till today?RonDennis wrote: ↑Fri May 11, 2018 2:27 amWe're talking about a team that had the "best chassis" in 2017 and has a race winning engine now, while they haven't entered Q3 once and are fighting with teams like Haas, Force India and Toro Rosso.PhillipM wrote: ↑Fri May 11, 2018 2:23 amTheir pace hasn't been terrible though, it's been pretty damned good for an interim car with a rushed engine swap, race pace is top of the midfield.
I haven't heard anyone at the factories even mutter anything about correlation issues.
The nose was delayed because it failed crash tests, so they had to go through iterations + respective lead times. Which is why they only bolted an interim part of the new turning vanes on whilst they waited for it.
When did it fail the crash test?

So you don´t have a clue, but throw some BS about bad correlation when the parts have not even been bolt into the car?RonDennis wrote: ↑Fri May 11, 2018 2:20 amLonger lead times because of bad correlation. Bad correlation seems likely in my opinion, would explain their terrible pace so far. Why else would you delay the update for Melbourne until Spain.
2 days of testing next week Plus testing for Perelli as well. Perelli testing can be useful this time around.
I didn't see any new parts in FP1. They did change the nose during the session, don't know why (both new spec).
