Gascoyne with Benetton chassis

NEW Benetton technical director Mike Gascoyne has said that he is confident that work carried out since the end of the season will give the team's new chassis increased reliability.

Gascoyne, who moved from Jordan, said that minor adjustments to this year's car have already been made and added that they would be implicated to the B200B chassis after the team begin testing in December.

"The car we will be using for next month's test will be a B2000 fitted with the new gearbox, rear suspension and new Renault-developed engine," Gascoyne said.

"The team has done a very good job packaging this new rear end and testing with this car will enable us to push back finalizing the aerodynamic package for the new chassis as well as getting rid of a lot of potential reliability issues."
