THE ENGINEERS WORD – Julian Stannard

“Traditionally our cars are strong under brakes over the bumps into turn 3 and with good rotation at turn 4. Although Ipswich has a simple circuit layout, the corners are particularly tricky. It is important to strike a balance between the three fast corners and the long slow corners. And watch out not to make the two left handers fast at the expense of the four right handers.”

“We need to focus on tunning a car with a lot of rotation for the slow speed corners and with a good aero balance for the fast corners. Getting a car with good one lap pace is what we need to qualify well.”
