“Porpoising is a very default thing to simulate in a wind tunnel and that’s obviously what’s caught a lot of people out.” Speaking ahead of the race, Nico Rosberg also was “no coincidence” Red Bull had no issues with porpoising with Newey among their line-up.
Ted Kravitz has also revealed Red Bull are likely to introduce a new lighter chassis for the Singapore Grand Prix which could see them gain half a second a lap. When questioned whether he would receive the new design in a couple of race weekends, Verstappen simply responded “maybe”.
Red Bull’s design has seen Verstappen secure nine wins this season as the Dutchman cruises towards his second world title. The Dutchman now enjoys a massive 93 point lead in the championship meaning he can almost retire from four races and still be ahead in the standings.
