That's the claim of retired team racer and Frenchman Olivier Panis, who is still a test driver.
The 38-year-old, who left Michael Schumacher to be the oldest driver in grands prix, tried the fledgling TF105 model at Valencia this week, but did not impress the timing sheet.
He said of the Cologne-built car, though: "Mechanically it's better."
"We'll have to see what the (Melbourne spec) aero kit is like," Olivier told Autosport, "but (the car is) more stable - the rear is definitely better than last year." -GMM
