Bratt On The Pace Upon Return To F2 Cockpit At Snetterton

1 Mins read

Will Bratt made his return to action in a racing car for the first time in six months this week when he took part in the final pre-season test for the FIA Formula Two Championship at Snetterton.

Despite not having driven any car on a track since the season finale at Valencia last September, Bratt was immediately on the pace. He finished the day's opening session in second position, which was good enough to see him finish the day second overall. He also put in a dominant display during wet conditions in the fourth and final session of the day.

Bratt had been unable to take part in the second session in the morning after a damaged sump on his Williams JPH1B, which required extensive repair work. The third session didn't last long for Bratt either, suffering gearbox problems after just two laps.

“It was great to be back on track after six months away and I'm grateful for the opportunity to drive an F2 car again and show what I'm capable of”, said Will. “Everything went as well as I could have hoped really, we only had a chance to run in two of the four sessions but we were on it from the off and very competitive.”

Will is continuing to search for the budget to compete in the 2011 season, which gets underway on 16/17th April at Silverstone. 

“As ever, it's all down to budget as to what we'll be able to do this season,” he explained. “I'd love to be back in F2 to have another crack at the title and the Formula One test prize with Williams but we still need to wait and see what'll be possible. Our options are still open but we know we're running out of time.”
