Aston Martin AMR22 rear wing beadboard
Most importantly, this method proves that “our staff will be revolutionary,” Krak explains. What makes it so particular is that after the primary main replace for the AMR22, Aston Martin was stated to have merely copied the Red Bull RB18 for it. Such claims “had been generally unfair,” says Krak. “But that is how it’s in Formula 1.”
With the rear wing idea, Aston Martin “many [eigene] “Maybe other teams will comply with the identical technique,” says Krak. “The subsequent races the place management will likely be necessary are Zandvoort and Singapore. I might be shocked if we had been the one ones operating this concept in Singapore.”
Aston Martin: At least the race tempo is true
But Krak is happy not solely with the event work of his staff, but additionally with the ultimate outcomes. Aston Martin has just lately had “a few optimistic races” with an emphasis on racing. Because on Sunday, the staff confirmed “good tempo” and the command publish made “good choices”.
In reality, because the Imola Grand Prix within the spring, Aston Martin has solely failed to attain on two events, however solely completed tenth within the prime 10 on 5 events. According to Krack, that is additionally the results of poor qualification charges.

The staff boss stated bluntly: “We have to start out from the highest. We are too far behind and that is the issue. You solely get one level, nevertheless it’s not sufficient to shut the hole within the Constructors’ Championship.”
Race efficiency itself is pretty much as good or higher, Krak says. He was “not happy” with the ultimate outcomes. “Because in Hungary we went from 14th and 18th to tenth and eleventh with none setbacks. It is superb,” he says.
Why does not AMR22 qualify?
But Saturday’s weak spot stays elusive. “We’re making an attempt to determine that out,” Krak says. “If we all know, we will attempt to change it, so we now have to resolve it.”
The decisive issue right here is the lap and allotted time, explains the pinnacle of the Aston Martin staff, not the schedule. “Because in midfield, in the event you make a mistake, three or 4 locations disappear in a short time. If somebody will get to the purpose, it offers you three beginning positions, perhaps 5 or 6.”
“That’s why,” says Krak, “it is actually necessary to be goal and maintain a distance. That means you may see the place you’ll want to enhance.”
Aston Martin has discovered a little bit trick in race preparation: it permits its drivers to pre-start the race tires. “We do it as a result of we expect it is proper,” Krak says. “You should ask other folks why others do not do it. We suppose it should assist us.”
