Force India: Not to accumulate mileage due to rain

Published

on

(Force India Press Release) Sahara Force India started its final pre-season test this afternoon as Paul Di Resta completed 57 laps in the VJM06. His recently confirmed teammate, Adrian Sutil, will drive tomorrow and Saturday.

Paul Di Resta: “Quite a disrupted day with the constant rain showers, but it gave me the chance to run in the wet conditions and gain some knowledge of the wet weather tyres. That should mean we’re prepared in case we get a wet race early in the season.”

“The temperatures were low today and not that representative, so we saw a big variation in lap times. Late in the day the rain eased off, which gave us a run in the dry, and we were able to check some things ahead of the weekend when the weather is expected to improve.”

Jakob Andreasen, Chief Race Engineer “It has been a useful day despite the damp weather. Our mission was not to accumulate mileage, but to learn more about the car’s aero performance, as well as the new construction intermediate and wet weather tyres.”

“With a similar forecast for tomorrow, it’s likely we will run through another wet weather programme with Adrian to give him experience of the intermediates and wets.”
