Force India duo share the Mugello final day testing times



Recently Force India decided to change their final day testing plan, today both regular drivers will gets test times. Yesterday Paul di Resta’s test times lose due to a hydraulics problem ah he just done 14 laps.

Di Resta’s team-mate Nico Hulkenberg was expected to be in the car for the whole of the final day, di Resta will make up for the lost time by taking the morning session and Hulkenberg to take over the car after the lunch break.

Di Resta says that the short running isn’t a huge concern – “I don’t think it’s massive,” he said. “We’re quite limited with what we were going to learn anyway, given the way the track is. It’s not got that many similar characteristics compared to the tracks we’re racing at.

“It would have been nice to get some more running, but these things happen. If we can get cracking tomorrow and get a full programme in we’ll be okay.”

Force India’s deputy team principal Bob Fernley says that they want to do quite a few changes to the hydraulic system to eliminate it.

“We had some faults in the data and we needed to do quite a few changes to the hydraulic system to eliminate it. [It was] a bit of a painful day,” Bob said.

“The problem was tracers. We were just worried it was going to cause an issue, partly safety and not wanting to cause any damage. We changed everything; the engine, the hydraulic pack. The key thing was to make sure Paul was comfortable.

“We will change our schedule, run half a day with Paul [Thursday] morning and Nico in the afternoon, to give them equal time in the car.”
