In theory, it feels more like all of that is up in the air. Teams are publicly pushing back against new chassis and new engines, and new engines in this chassis is TOUGH. Reduced weight of the aeroscreen could help

With regard to the new engine, Chevrolet and Honda completed a three-day test in March. However, the rollout has been put back to 2024 because of supply chain delays.
