Force India new pilot Nico Hulkenberg says that 2012 Force India car and good to get so many laps under my belt but he admits that there is still a massive amount to learn.
“A busy first day in the car and good to get so many laps under my belt,” Hulkenberg told Media in final day test at Jerez.
“It was my first time in the new car so I concentrated on getting comfortable and up to speed. The long runs were useful for that and it also allowed me to start understanding the new tyres.
“There is still a massive amount to learn and lots of data to look at, but it feels like we have a good baseline to develop from and I’m pleased with how the day went.”
Force India Technical director Andrew Green was pleased with the German’s workload on Friday and declared the entire four-day test a “positive” one despite Thursday’s lost track-time.
“Overall I think we can come away from Jerez feeling positive. The car has run reliably, the initial feedback from the drivers is encouraging and we’ve learned a lot about the set-up directions we want to explore over the coming weeks,” said Green.
“I also want to highlight the tremendous effort from the team at the track this week, backed up by the staff at Silverstone, which helped ensure we got the most from our first test with the new car.”
