Local hero Kamui Kobayashi pleased with Suzuka Friday practice run, he explain every single lap is thrilled. Kobayashi set sixth fastest in FP1 and 13th fastest in FP2.
Sauber ran in Friday free practice with some new parts included a front wing; Kobayashi says it is too early to judge on the performance of new parts and he felt Sauber can improve the balance and the set up.
“It is a fantastic feeling to drive here at Suzuka again after one year,” Kobayashi commented. “It is such a great circuit and every single lap is exciting.
“We have a couple of updates to the car and today’s job is to fully understand how the new parts work. The lap times seem to be pretty close here, which means it is too early to judge on the performance, but I feel we can improve the balance and the set up.”
