R3 worse than a dodgy shopping trolley
Jaguar need a quick fix before Melbourne
“Both drivers have been hugely disappointed with the new car.” [06/02/02 - 07:46]
The Jaguar team carried out more chassis development and aerodynamic in Barcelona last weekend, progressively incorporating more aerodynamic and rear suspension modifications into the R3 and the belief in the team is that progress is being made in that area. However, since then the team have been noticeably absent from the track amid the fresh news of Steve Nichols leaving his post as technical director.
"We feel we are really making progress on the aerodynamic package," said a team spokesman, "and of course we have a brand new floor in the pipeline which will first be tested in the Silverstone shakedown prior to Melbourne."
According to fresh reports in the Sun, star driver Eddie Irvine is said to be extremely dissatisfied with the new car along with teammate Pedro de la Rosa, both men concerned about it's lack of speed and poor handling abilities.
“Both drivers have been hugely disappointed with the new car,” a team insider told the tabloid. “They agreed that a dodgy shopping trolley was easier to handle.”
Now with only weeks to go until the teams will be packing up their equipment to send to Australia for the opening round of the season, the Milton Keynes based squad will be working overtime to find a quick cure for their stricken machine.
