It's huge and goofy in his opinion. Too much similar to the FIA showcar.
Also, he suspect Aston could be one of the teams that "may have got it all wrong" referring to the recent words by James Allison, considering the links between Mercedes and AM.
His colleague Franco Nugnes also wrote that "the first impression is that the car could struggle to reach the minimum 795kg weight limit" (weird comment, imho, cause... on which data?)
It wouldn’t surprise me. Consider this.
Let’s say the rumours have weight to them, that AM have realised their concept road map is flawed and want to start over. They wouldn’t be afraid to show their hand with this car would they? If you’re going to completely scrap a concept then you’re not concerned if people take notes from your flawed car.
Especially if you know you’re going to turn up midway through the season with a new car concept.
Under the budget cap though, I imagine that’s kind of difficult to do. Might explain why AM were absolutely determined to secure Dan Fallows asap.
