Rahal Vows to Keep on Working

Friday June 15th, 2001

Jaguar Racing boss Bobby Rahal has admitted that despite the introduction of a new aerodynamic package, his team still has much work to do if they are to reach their goals for this season.

The new developments seemed to work wonders on their debut in Monaco, where Eddie Irvine drove the team's R2 to third place. But Canada was a different story and although Pedro de la Rosa continued the team's points-scoring run with a sixth place finish, Rahal believes neither performance has shown Jaguar's real level.

"I don't think anyone has portrayed that we still don't have a lot of work to do," admitted Rahal. "But I probably like to think that Eddie's phrase is a correct one and Monaco did flatter a bit - although some factors in Canada muddied the picture."

One of the major factors in this year's championship battle is the competition between Jaguar tyre suppliers Michelin and their rivals Bridgestone, and Rahal believes right now Michelin has the upper hand in the races.

"Clearly it seems that Bridgestone are able to crank off one fast lap," he said. "But come race day, the drop off we experience is probably less so than the Bridgestones."
