Hulkenberg has problem free day in Jerez

1 Mins read

The young German Nico Hulkenberg took advantage of the long-awaited dry weather to complete 132 laps in the Williams FW32 on Day 3 of the Jerez test.

The 22-year-old finished an impressive fourth, after completing more laps than any other driver, as the team focused on pit-stop practice, race simulation, and set-up work on the new car.

Technical director Sam Michael explained how the day was not completely without incident, with his driver stopping out on track late in the day. “Nico spent most of the morning doing pitstop practice with the race team before moving on to a race simulation. He then followed that up with a long run for set-up work. The cause of the problem which forced Nico to stop out on track towards the end of the session was hydraulic, but the part was high mileage.”

Hulkenberg will return tomorrow for the final day of testing in Jerez.
