Those from Silverstone announced that they did not plan to introduce any big news during the Asian tour or in Miami and They would wait until mid-May to introduce the big improvement packages of the season. However, now they announce that in Japan they will have a plus that they hope will make a difference.

The possibility of a major aerodynamic kit for the Japanese Grand Prix has already been leaked from the British team.
