The Force India a “positive place to start”

1 Mins read

It’s been another washout today at Jerez today, after rain from 10 o’clock all through the session. German driver Adrian Sutil took over the reins today and managed to put some dry times in before the rain came down. His lap, a 1:21.428, was third quickest of the day; 1.5 seconds off the Toro Rosso that set the fastest lap.

The team say that the day was used to concentrate on “systems checks, long runs and set-up evaluation” but the change in weather and 2 red flags make thing difficult. There where a total of 4 red flags today, the last of which was caused by the Force India’s electronics, halting Sutil 48 laps into a run.

When questioned about the session, Sutil remarked that the car was a “positive place to start” but “unfortunately the rain came in quite early and then it was really waiting for reasonable conditions to go out.” He finished by saying that he is “looking forward to getting started again tomorrow.”

Chief race engineer, Dominic Harlow, sad that the wet was a good opportunity to check the intermediate and wet tyres with different setups. When questioned about the stoppage in the afternoon, he responded saying “that is what testing with a new car is about.”

Adrain Sutil remains in the seat for tomorrow, which is predicted to be another wet day in Jerez.
