Re: Canada next

So we are off to Canada next. Be a good chance to see if we have made progress as we are back to a more traditional circuit. My worry though is Canada has some long straights and I think we struggle for straight-line speed and traction out of the hairpin could hamper us down to the chicane

Haven't really looked at straightline speed traps. True, it was a big advantage for us at Canada with the 2014 - 17 car.

Autosport has charted our gaps to 15th place to date and the improvement at Barcelona was massive. Down to 0.8. It's probably better than measuring the gap to Stroll, who could equally be going backwards. Then again, I read that RP will soon have an almost completely new car, not just an upgrade.

Encouraging at Monaco was that the team improved the car considerably over the weekend. I understand the race team is little changed from last year and appears a reasonably happy ship. The race notes were very upbeat.
