Renault plans to hit on KERS in Monza

Posted by Ashutosh Tiwari Tuesday, September 8, 2009
Yes, the long straights in Monza have given Renault a chance to think over applying the KERS technology in the car for this race. Looking at Raikonnen's success in Spa-Francorchamps, the credit to which can be well given to Kimi's resistance as a driver, Ferrari's starightline speed and most importantly, the KERS installed in the F-60, Renault seem to have realized the importance of KERS here in Monza. According to Renault executive director of engineering, Pat Symonds, KERS would give an advantage of about 15 meters in on the long straight on the circuit. Monza is a high speed track but their are hardly any high speed corners. It is all about braking and traction control. So we are headed to see another car with KERS on it in Monza. With Fernando Alonso as the driver and KERS installed on the car, we can very much expect the R29 to perform to its best in Monza and we might see Fernando on the podium this time. The team boasts of performing very well over the season and says that the car has improved all through 2009.
