Renault F1 team bringing new aerodynamic package at the German GP

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Renault is preparing to become the third best team on the grid regardless of what Nelsinho Piquet thinks will transpire in the second part of the season. The team will debut a new aerodynamic package at the Ring.

It is less than a week until the German Grand Prix. Pat Symonds, the team's director of engineering, said that they have got a reasonable upgrade for the Nurburgring, which includes a further version of the new front wing evaluated at Silverstone.

He added that they were also expecting to some mechanical upgrades including new rear wheel fairings and an updated engine cover. He also said that the concentration remains on aero as it's the fundamental element that brings the most speed.

He said, rather than just putting parts on the car, we're also working on the usability of that aero: exploring the aero mapping so that we get the most from the car in every corner.

The recovery last year, after a poor showing in the first half of 2009, seems to have boosted up Renault's spirits.

Symonds relates, Finishing the season with the third fastest car still has to be the target, although where that leaves us in the championship standings is difficult to predict.
