Lewis Hamilton has explained that those with the most effective Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS) will enjoy a distinct advantage at Istanbul Park next weekend. The McLaren driver, who won the Round 3 of the championship in China, also took the chequered flag first in last year’s Turkish Grand Prix.
“For this race, I think we’ll be seeing drivers working quite hard to look after their tyres throughout the race - particularly in Turn 8, which is fast and bumpy,” the 2008 Champion explained. “It’s one of the most demanding corners for tyres anywhere.
“This is also a circuit where KERS Hybrid will be a major benefit – most of the straights come after low-speed corners, so there’s plenty of scope for using the KERS Hybrid – most notably out of Turn 10, but also out of the final corner.
“There’s always quite a big chance for passing into Turn 12 because it’s quite easy to stay with a leading car out of Turn 10 and duck into the tow. There’s every reason to believe that the run of interesting and exciting races will continue next weekend.”
KERS first debuted in Formula 1 two years ago, but was temporarily shelved by teams in 2010 due to cost-cutting measures.
