Jaguar R5 - light chassis 10 October 2004

Jaguar provided Christian Klien with a new, lighter B-version of the R5 chassis, which was tested the week before the race. The revisions were not in the external shape but mainly in the carbon fibre and composites moulding concept. In particular the team managed to make the wall of the chassis slightly thinner so reducing the weight, but at the same time making it stiffer.
