The Lotus team will introduce a low-downforce aero update at the upcoming Canadian Grand Prix, the team’s technical head Mike Gascoyne has confirmed, who also added that the team is probably in the best position to pick up points at the Circuit de Gilles Villeneuve.
"Canada’s a race we all look forward to," Gascoyne said. "It’s a great city and a great race and we’re all glad to be going back to Montreal.
“It’s a temporary circuit where you often see quite a few people hit the wall, bringing out the safety car more than it’s usually seen. It’s one of those races where it’s possible to pick up points, and we’ve got to put ourselves in a position to do that. We’ve got two very experienced drivers in the car which will help us be there at the finish and that’s the primary goal,” he continued.
"It’s going to be hard on brakes, but we’ve had no problems in that area. We’re also bringing a few more new parts, including a low-downforce package specifically for Canada, so overall we want to build on the performances we’ve been putting in, aim for bullet-proof reliability, and have two cars see the flag."
