The Setup: Barber with Matt Barnes

The fourth round of the 2023 season for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES heads to the Deep South for this weekend’s Children’s of Alabama Indy Grand Prix at Barber Motorsports Park. Barnes: I think the driver needs to have a good platform there. I think the car is off the ground for a long time, going downhill. Not only just find the balance of general, but the track changes so much from session to session there. Barnes: I think you have to pick one to be good at there. Barnes: For maximum lap time, you need to have the mechanical rotation. I think the driver can tend to compensate in the high speed with bravery, but if the thing doesn’t turn in the low speed, that just bleeds lap time. Barnes: It is a different tire this year, so that’s going to be a factor. Barnes: Yeah, but those are really the main changes from last year. Barnes: For Rinus, having a very neutral car is important or having as little understeer as possible.
