Renault to decide on new exhaust system tonight

Nick Heidfeld, RenaultNick Heidfeld says Renault will decide on Friday night whether he continues using the new exhaust system introduced in Germany.

Heidfeld tested a rear-facing exhaust concept the team has been evaluating following the debut of its radical forward-facing system at the start of the year.

The German driver, eighth quickest today, said the new system had a lot of potential, but admitted there were still issues with it.

The team will decide later tonight if it runs it during the rest of the weekend.

"We can see a lot of potential with it, but it is not working perfectly at the moment. There is a lot of work to do," said Heidfeld.

"The car definitely feels different with it, and it is quite a big change from what we had before. We have to work quite a bit on it, so we will look at the data later and then see what we do."
