Back of the Grid and Last Through the Flag: Team England


Once again, Team England put a car onto the track of a GP which was not properly ‘set up’ for the circuit.

England tactically are a decade behind the pace + technical engineering flaws

Generally in GP, the drive chain provides the power and enforcement, the drivers are class or not.

N.B. Last year’s form in F1 means zero.  As does set up for last race.

Australia : England set up at the Melbourne circuit today:

Finch&Warner : Cook&Bell

Watto : Root

Clark’s class in 4: Balance unrefined engine, untested chasis

2 spinners : no spinner

At-you bowlers fresh from BB : Bresnan & Rankin

Drive chain:  top order:  5 and 8

Stokes and Bopara after first pit stop.

Here’s the verdict: England:wrong tires, wrong pit stop/refueling strategy, understeer when oversteer essential, inappropriate suspension for Melbourne track, downforce applied from subframe, locked brakes on first turn.
