Fabio Leimer:
“To me it was good day. I was able to improve from the morning to the afternoon, and I learnt a lot for my future. I wasn't only impressed by the power of the car, as actually I didn't expect it to be so nice to drive. It is so stable and smooth when riding the kerbs compared to a GP2 car.

“I was a bit worried about my neck before the test, but this wasn't an issue. What I could feel in the end was that the concentration needed during the entire day was quite intense. Obviously I had to learn a lot about procedures and switches. All in all, I'm happy with what the team and I have done today – it was a great day, full of new experiences.”

Giampaolo Dall'Ara (Head of Track Engineering):
“We covered a good mileage today and completed the programme with Fabio as planned. We had no major problems except the radio communication didn't always work as it should have, which sometimes made it a bit difficult for Fabio. The morning session was about him getting familiar with the car and doing some aero testing. Later we did some set-up and evaluation work.

“Fabio had four sets of soft and one set of super soft tyres available. He handled the programme well, gave good feedback and left a good impression with the team. We wish him a great 2012 GP2 season!”
