Dr Helmut Marko has joined those who are unconvinced the aerodynamic changes for 2019 will substantially improve overtaking.

Formula 1's current generation of cars may be the fastest ever, but the aerodynamic 'wake' means it is also harder than ever for a chasing car to follow his rival.

A similar approach has worked in Indycar, but Marko is sceptical that could apply to F1.

"Indycar is not comparable to F1 because of the standard chassis. As soon as individual solutions come into play, as in F1, it is incredibly difficult to just solve a problem like that," he said.
