Hard test­ing

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Force In­dia’s Ser­gio Perez reck­ons that driv­ers will be “de­stroyed” by the test­ing of the new 2017 F1 cars. The new cars fea­ture sig­nif­i­cantly more power and down­force, due to wider body­work, wings and tyres. Perez said the ex­tra forces of the cars will play a big factor in the phys­i­cal­ity of driv­ing them. “I’m sure when we start test­ing every­one will be de­stroyed,” he said. “Af­ter you stop for a cou­ple of months it’s dif­fi­cult to sim­u­late the same forces. So ev­ery time you jump in again you al­ways suf­fer with your neck. Now the cars are quicker I sus­pect every­one will com­plain about it.”
