Spotted: Ivanoff’s low profile canopy
It's a dramatic difference that will be apparent to those that see it. One the team hopes will make the raceplane not only more efficient, but lighter. The ultimate goal is to get the raceplane under the minimum limit of 696kg so that they will have to add weight: which will give Team Hamilton the opportunity to optimise the raceplane's centre of gravity precisely for Ivanoff's style of racing.
After his fantastic performance in the first race of 2016, Ivanoff will be looking to keep up that momentum. "When I won in Abu Dhabi I said to the team, now we have to accelerate," he said. "We have to push hard to do modifications, and more modifications, and try to improve the level of the raceplane – We can't stay static," Ivanoff concluded.
