Melbourne (Australia), 23 mar (EFE).- The Australian driver Mark Webber (Red Bull) expressed his concerns in regards to the use the moveable rear wing.
"I don't quite understand why we have to use the wing all through qualifying," he said. "For qualifying, it is an added distraction and loading which we don't really need.It is not helping the show - it is another session where you want to do the ultimate lap time but everyone has the same tools to get that lap time, so why overload the driver? There is no real gain for doing it."
Webber thinks that the use the moveable rear wing during the qualifying sessions could also introduce more risk than the F-duct posed last season – when drivers had to take hands off the steering wheel to use it through some corners.
"We know the teams are pushing us completely to the limit and it is not nice to open the door up for them. It was for racing, so I don’t see why we need to be trying to get through Eau Rouge with an open rear wing. We tried that with the F-duct, it was a little on the edge…" EFE
