Burkhard Schaffer, Austrian men’s speed coach, stated: „The tests in the Audi wind tunnel are an important building block for the preparation for next season. The conclusions help us optimize the downhill position of the different athletes. But they also help provide important findings for the materials and will be provided to our suit manufacturer to further enhance their work."
Klaus Kröll added: „Our sport is infamous for the small differences between the winners and losers. That’s why we have to focus on realizing the optimal solutions especially in the area of materials. For me this was the first time in the wind tunnel but when I see the level of detailed work that goes on here I already know that this was worth the trip."
