Pete is pretty dead on with everything.
One thing for those of you with a power meter. You can compare different positions based on speed, power, HR. It is possible to find a position that is more aero, but cuts your power more meaning you might even go slower.
I did a couple of flat TTs last year with slightly different positions. The faster position was higher in the front with the saddle 1cm further back. The power was better and even though I lost a bit of aero advantage, being able to push harder on the pedals made up for it.
A power meter can be used like your personal wind tunnel to test position changes and even equipment choices.
