It's clear the new aero kits aren't as sturdy as the stock Dallara chassis was in previous seasons. Light taps that would usually result in no damage proved to be more serious this year. The 2014 champion suffered damage to his front wing when attempting to pass Juan Pablo Montoya, ending his chances of a race win.
Talking to Autosport, Will Power said that losing his front wing "did make a difference. Definitely lost front end [grip] when I knocked that off," he said.
Even with the need to be more careful this year, Tony Kanaan said that "aero kits made the racing a lot closer, which I couldn't believe was going to happen. In a way I think it's a good thing. In the past I think we had too much of a strong car, that we would use that against each other, and nothing would happen."
