The Formula Renault team just finished their first official test and have still six test days to go, but for the Formula 2 team, it was already their last test of this season.
Jordan King was testing car number 16 for the first two days while Richard Verschoor took his seat over during the last day. Mahaveer Raghunathan tested the car with the number 17. Jordan King his fastest lap time (1:28.299) was during the second test day during the morning session. Mahaveer set his best lap time during the same morning session. Richard Verschoor was overall positive about his test day.
“I am quite happy about today. The qualifying simulation wasn’t that bad, but it was difficult to set a lap time in one lap on a track where I have never been before with this Formula 2 car. On the other hand, my race simulation was super strong. I could play with the car, and it gave me a lot of confidence with it during the race simulation. But if we get to a race weekend, the results will be different. Everybody was able to test for three days in a row and get in a rhythm. This is something you won’t get during a race weekend.” – Richard Verschoor
“The team was very helpful, and I managed to make good progress together with my engineer during the test days. There is still a lot of progress to make, but I am looking forward to that.” – Mahaveer Raghunathan
