Formula 1 | Alfa Romeo F1: Date the future evolution of the Vasseur C42
Alfa Romeo has implemented a development plan for the second half of the F1 season, as explained by Frédéric Vasseur. The team principal notes that the C42 will have new parts for its home race at Monza in the third grand prix after the break.
“We have the next upgrade at Monza. Then something bigger is planned for Suzuka, but it could also be Austin.” Vasseur said the FIA, which has been opposed to the change, plans to propose.
The federation wants to raise the edges of the floor by 25 mm, but the French are worried about the constant changes that will have to be made and the drifts it could bring in the second part of the season.
“One change often leads to more. We need upside, and stabilization of regulations to reduce costs. I’m not even thinking of measuring from Spa. What will the FIA do when cars hit the ground violently? As usual at Raidillon de l’Eau Rouge? Their Does everyone have to ride 30mm higher?
Finally, Vasseur explained why the arrival of Guanyue Zhou did not lead to an influx of Chinese sponsors: “It’s not enough for Chinese companies to have a compatriot in the adventure. They only work with you if the performance is good.”
