Early reports indicate that the similator tests done by Sebastian Vettel have concluded that the new car isnt suited to his driving style. Apparently the rear of the car dances in cornering. Vettel has struggled with cars that arent tailored to the way he drives. We will get the full picture in the upcoming pre-season tests.
Is it coming from Vettel? what is the source?

This would be the car that's effectively an updated W10, would it? That car was well known for being unstable. Renowned the world over for being rubbish in corners... :lol:

The car is doing a "Tango Nuevo", Vettel is more of a "The twist" kind of guy.

That recent James Allison video saying how the floor change would put the Mercedes last if they didn’t try and regain the downforce makes me wonder how this will affect a car that copied it but is also still trying to understand the design.

BTW, since the chassis is what is frozen, saying that you're gonna to use your tokens on thier chassis is like saying I'm gonna use my money to buy stuff!

IIRC, Seb took engineering classes while at RBR in order to communicate better with his engineers.

He didn't win, but I think Kvyat has at least a BEng.

That's been pretty obvious in all the years looking at Vettel's dedication for technical aspects and his understanding of that. I hope that's not going to be missed so much at Ferrari, but sadly I fear it will to some extent. At least for a certatin period of time.

It also means that he probably has an exponential value for bringing an engineers viewpoint to AMR from Ferrari/RBR. It seems that Seb probably has more technical understanding of the car's he's driven than most drivers, and that could push the development quickly if Stroll is willing to pay for iteration.
