Haas bringing updates to Singapore

13 September 2016

The Haas F1 Team will see its final aero update of 2016, with changes to the floor and front wing, during the Singapore Grand Prix weekend.

The update arrives as many medium to small sized teams are concentrating all of their efforts on 2017 car development, which Haas F1 is following suit.

“We’ve been using a 60-percent scale model car in the wind tunnel since February, but from February to June we developed both cars (2016 and 2017) simultaneously. In the past two-and-a-half months, it’s been all hands on deck developing the 2017 car,” said team principal, Guenther Steiner.

“We finished developing this year’s car completely more than two months ago. These changes came from wind tunnel data and it took a little bit of time to develop the parts,” added Steiner.

The development that ceased at the factory is yet to be seen on track, however Steiner revealed the new updates will arrive in Singapore, “I think we’re at a good point in finding solutions and finding the balance of the car. We are bringing updates to the car in Singapore which, hopefully, will help us go faster.”

Steiner added more details as to where to look for the team’s updated parts at the Marina Bay circuit, “Front wing, modifications to the floor and the brake ducts. We’re aiming to reduce corner sensitivity so the car is more consistent, and enhance aerodynamic performance and overall efficiency.”
