Theissen Wary of Traction Control

Friday April 20th, 2001

BMW motorsport director Dr. Mario Theissen believes that Formula One teams should be without traction control until the end of the season -- despite the driving aids being introduced at the Spanish Grand Prix on April 29.

Theissen admitted that he thought that the sport's governing body, the FIA, was being a little too hasty in bringing traction control back at this stage of the season.

"I think we should think carefully about traction control because we should not introduce it at the next race," Theissen said. "We might be better without."

But Theissen added that he expected Williams to continue their fine form during the remaining thirteen races and keep Ferrari and McLaren on their toes.

He said: "The target this year is to be third again, but for you to write about three top teams not just about two."
