The R.S.16 will be the third car produced by Enstone since the era of the V6 hybrid regulations came into play. It builds on all the lessons learnt from our previous two cars and can be seen as an evolution from the E22 and E23. For the second year running we’ve changed power unit and certain elements of the gestation period for the R.S.16 have been very short, however we think we’ve got a solid baseline to work from.
We want a stable base to enable us to introduce developments through the year. The first iteration shouldn’t have any surprises but we’ll be working on a number of aspects to improve the car through the season as well as lay the groundwork for 2017 and beyond.
