After winter, the talking story is all about Racing Point’s new car. And this is the situation after it shows up with a great considerable pace at pre-season testing. But what shall we take from this? Is it a flash in the pan inspired by RP 20? Or will it go to the tracks of the Grand Prix as well?
Talking to team boss Otmar Szafnauer on these questions, he was impressed to provide us an answer. He says it was hard for him to predict. But the long winter made sure carrying to Red Bull Ring. And another point, no one is now too lazy to go back to work. Certainly, none of them were provided the time to develop cars, add bits to them. And they also certainly possess no such luck. He expects the same competitiveness to be available as it was in winter. He is sure to have it and become eident of in the upcoming race in Austria.
And he believes that they did take a decent step forward. They want to look competitive. Many a time, they do look competitive and quick, lie the Adrian Sutil taking over Mercedes at Spa, and they nearly won Spa. Talking of the specs of the car, he really applauded the aerodynamic team for their splendid work. It is unusual for him to have such perfection. That is the best Barcelona gave him that, and he is proud of it. The team shall again see the car next week.
