Theissen looking for greater aero cuts
30 June 2009 – BMW's Mario Theissen is hoping that Formula One teams can agree to cut back on spending in the aerodynamics department. With no budget cap featuring in 2010 anymore and a large amount of money arguably wasted on KERS this season, the team principal is now hoping to reduce aerodynamic capabilities sporadically.
With cars stripped of additional winglets and aerodynamic pieces for 2010, the goal was to achieve a greater amount of passing in races. "When it comes to overtaking, maybe we had expected a bit more from the new regulations," Dr. Theissen admitted. "In the area of cost-saving, I think the progress has pretty much met expectations; the aero restrictions we currently have, however, are not as tight as we thought they would be so I think we could do more."
