Let's wait what he doing in the field because they have the same aim for 2009 with KERS and the development and the most races didn't work.Also say the seat of the driver is a little bit higher and also the fuel tank and the oil tank that it means they have higher center weight.

The front part is similar to the one from last year but we will introduce some changes during our tests.
As you can see the front part of the chassis has been raised and the suspension, too, we have studied the lower part in order to improve the flow underneath the car which is very important for performance.
And due to the raiding of the frame the driver will be sitting in a higher position and you can see also the engine snorkel is a bit higher in order to have the same performance.
If you look back on the sides you have stronger indentation in the lower part and in the central part you can see that. We have introduced KERS in the area of the fuel tank.
If we go back a little bit more we have different behaviour in terms of the diffuser. We have tried to improve this structure in aerodynamic terms so the diffuser is completely reviewed in the light of the new regulations. It’s lower, it’s far simpler because the regulations are stricter.
And obviously we have this mobile rear flap. This is the first evolution and main target is controlling the operations of it, there will be strong development in that.
