Neither Toyota or McLaren to race with anvil wing

Both McLaren and Toyota were seen testing out an ‘anvil wing during testing at Hockenheim last week. However according to Autosport, neither team is planning to use the wing at the German Grand Prix.

In an interview with Autosport, Toyota driver Jarno Trulli said that the test last week were important for the team as it was the first time they have run on Bridgestone s Potenza tyres at the track, and therefore they garnered a lot of useful information.

“We had a promising test last week at Hockenheim which was very useful because we have not raced there for two years and we had the chance to study set-ups and tyre behaviour,” he explained.

“That was the first time we have used the current Bridgestone Potenza tyres at Hockenheim and it was important to understand their characteristics at this circuit. We made good progress with some new aero parts and hopefully this track will suit our car.

“I have finished in the points for the last three races which shows how competitive we are at the moment, so my target this weekend is to again score points and fight for the top six. I am optimistic as usual.”

Meanwhile McLaren driver revealed that the team would not be using the fin as they needed to be sure it wouldn t affect the car too much in heavy crosswinds.
