THE WORD FROM THE ENGINEER – Julian Stannard

“Today’s practice sessions were biased heavily towards our co-driver, Ash. Tim only had the first session to dial in the car and will be back in again for the first session tomorrow. For all teams it is imperative to have the co-driver comfortable in the car and confident to drive it consistently on the edge, as this is key come Sunday.”

“Looking ahead to Sunday’s race, and with the move to Dunlop soft tyres this year, it will put even more stress on the rear tyres. Low gear and poor surface on the exits of T4 and T13 really puts the strain on the compound. Managing tyres in the race will be crucial and may dictate much of the strategy. Add in the reduction in CPS pit stops from 4 to 3, it allows for a larger range of strategies to play out. The 4 stop strategy will still have merit and may prove a strong strategy for some. Alternatively, a minimum stop strategy could prove the right play if a team can look after their tyres and have a strong driver pairing.”
