No KERS nor adjustable wing for Force India yet
« on: April 12, 2009, 06:54:07 PM »

Force India is yet to deploy the two main innovations allowed by F1's 2009 regulations, Adrian Sutil has revealed.

It is already known that the Silverstone-based team's VJM02 car is not featuring KERS technology, but 26-year-old German Sutil also admitted that the single seater is not even fitted with an adjustable front wing.

"It is not as simple as it seems," he wrote in his column for the Dutch Formule 1 Race Report. "It has the electric motor for the up and down movement of the flap, and there is a lot of software involved."

"By the time we go racing in Europe, I believe that Force India will drive with a KERS and adjustable front wings," Sutil added. 
 
But he insists that the features are not the silver bullet to F1's shortage of overtaking.

And he said of KERS: "It is waiting for us at the factory to be put on the car, but at the moment we think there is a weight disadvantage."
