Aldo Costa: “We worked hard on aerodynamics. From an aerodynamics point of view the car is completely different except for those elements that at this debut are temporarily identical to the old car’s. But the car will go through an evolution and so it will go to the first race with every aerodynamic surfaces re-done.”

“The front and rear wings will be new, while at this debut they are identical to the previous car. The chassis and the sidepods are slimmer. We’ve worked on every aspect of the car to improve its efficiency. We’ve also worked on solving problems we had on certain circuits, like Monte Carlo, Hungary, Canada. We worked on certain aerodynamics aspects that could help us on those particular circuits.”
