BAHRAIN - April 1, 2008: The introduction of a standard electronic control unit (ECU) has seen the elimination of traction control on Formula 1 race cars for the 2008 F1 season. According to Panasonic Toyota Racing driver Jarno Trulli, the traction control ban compels drivers to demonstrate their driving abilities at a higher level. Engineers from the Panasonic Toyota Racing team also explain the need for them to adapt the set-up of the TF108 race car to suit the new requirements and offer drivers the best car on the track. The Bahrain Grand Prix is taking place on April 6 at the Bahrain International Circuit, located in the middle of the desert. Aerodynamic stability will be essential since race cars will be prone to wheel-spin on the sandy circuit.
