Canada – HRT Friday Reports

Published

on

Narain Karthikeyan, 23rd: “Today we had a lot of new parts on the car: the diffuser and the rear wing which was specifically made for this track amongst others, so we have to fine-tune this. But it is a positive step. We have to find a good balance and mechanical grip for tomorrow because you need to save your tyres here, the track takes its toll on the rear tyres, so we must be careful and work on that. Tomorrow we have to wait and see what the weather conditions will be and hope to improve from here.”

Vitantonio Liuzzi, 22nd: “Overall, today was not a bad day at all. We had a lot of things to test: the aero upgrade, the new exhaust, our new “Montreal” rear wing. We found that we improved our balance and overall speed a bit, now we need to work on tuning the exhaust system. I’m happy about taking another step forward in our competition against our nearest rivals and I think tomorrow’s qualifying will be interesting. I enjoyed some long runs today and it seems the car is even better for the race than qualifying. Overall we can be positive about the rest of the weekend.”

Colin Kolles, Hispania Racing Team Principal: “We had a lot of upgrades on the car today and it seems like there is some improvement but we still have to evaluate the data. Today we worked on the setup for the race; now let’s see if we can make another step forward in FP3.

“We are feeling more positive this weekend than in Monaco, we have all the new parts we planned and it looks like there is some improvement but I can’t say how much yet. The reality of this is seen in qualifying but it certainly looks positive.”
