Jean-Éric Vergne says that he is really enjoyed in Monaco first time with Formula 1 car. The Vergne done 17th quickest in the rain-affected second session and 14 fastest in first practice.
“This was my first time here in a Formula 1 car and I really enjoyed myself,” said Vergne, who ended his day 17th quickest in the rain-affected second session. “Because I did not go particularly well around Monaco in the World Series last year, I was a bit apprehensive about today, although still looking forward to a new experience and not knowing what to expect.
“I think my performance today compared quite well to my team-mate, as Daniel (Ricciardo) won the last two World Series races he drove at this circuit and he had also had some practice time in the F1 car last year. From that perspective, I am quite happy and I feel the lap time was not important, especially as I had a bit of traffic and I finished my fastest lap in the pit lane.
“I am relatively pleased with the balance of the car which we can fine tune a bit further, but I still need a bit more time to adapt myself to this circuit, even if I liked driving it when it was wet. I feel prepared for whatever weather conditions we might encounter for the rest of the weekend.”
