With a new lift to faster stops

Author of the article: , published April 7, 2013

The Red Bull team finished in 2.05 seconds during the race for the Malaysian Grand Prix, which is a new record, and the other teams want to follow them and thus try to find the decisive fraction of a second. Lotus will use a brand new rear-end jack in Shanghai. “In Enston, we did stop training with the team. Behind us is a productive day that we started with a meeting where we analyzed where we still need to improve. This was followed by a series of about forty test stops with a moving show car, ”explained Lotus' Paul Seaby.

“We tested a new car for the rear of the car, which proved to be a great success. The race car lifts much faster than the old one. We are looking for tenths of a second, so every such trifle benefits us. We made the best stops in 2.4 seconds, and our tire change times are constantly between 2.5 and 2.7 seconds, which is very good for a stop with a moving car. Such a simulation is closest to a real stop, as the car is brought to the stop. In normal training, a few mechanics push the car into place to change, making it easier to precisely position the “gun” to unwind the bike. ”
