Mike Krack has reacted to Red Bull Racing’s accusations regarding Aston Martin’s updated car at the Spanish GP.
Aston Martin’s chassis has been discussed intensively throughout Friday. The updated AMR22 car looks similiar to Red Bull’s RB18 car. Though the car was deemed legal by the FIA, suspicions appeared at the Milton Keynes-based outfit. They decided to start an internal investigation to find out whether the IP was leaked.
Krack dismissed claims that Aston Martin could have used external data while developing the car.
“You will remember when we had the launch of the car, [we were] already mentioning that we had built in some flexibility in the car, to be able to develop along the journey, and this is what we have done,” the Aston Martin team principal told Sky Sports.
“From that point of view, it was just a normal development process.
“We had all the porpoising difficulties with the other spec car, and we said at one point we need to change, we need to make a little update here, and that’s what we did in the end.”
