Magnussen: Our VF-23 has efficient aerodynamics

After seven rounds of the season, Haas has just eight earned points. According to team driver Kevin Magnussen, this is due to the engineers’ failure to strike the right balance between the VF-23’s aerodynamic efficiency and mechanical grip.

Kevin Magnussen: “Our car has quite efficient aerodynamics, so the VF-23 looks good on smooth and fast tracks. However, we need to work efficiently on slow tracks and on tracks with bumps. We feel that we lack speed in such conditions.

It’s not just about dealing with bumps, but also about maintaining aerodynamic efficiency. Modern cars are very complex – it is impossible to simply increase mechanical grip, as this will lead to a loss of aerodynamic efficiency. Finding a compromise between these two opposites is a challenge for all teams.”
