F1 is working on a solution for it’s lack of passing – The program began 6-9 months ago
You waited all winter for the off-season to end. They threw the green flag on the 2018 F1 season and you were gifted with a snoozer. The Australian Grand Prix featured a combined total of 5 on-track passes.
Whoever said that races aren’t won in turn 1 have been proven entirely incorrect in recent F1 seasons. That’s an issue for any racing series. In the case of last week’s race, it’s not the track. It’s the modern cars that are the problem. F1 is working on it…
“One of the things we’ve started, and we’re now six to nine months into it, is a program to understand how we can enable these cars to race each other more effectively,” Brawn stated in an interview on SiriusXM.
“We need to keep the aerodynamic performance at a high level, but we need to do it in a way that’s more benign and more friendly to the cars around it.”
