Another new track
This season, Jean-Eric Vergne has to discover many tracks. Today, with the free practice of the Indian Grand Prix, it’s one more on the list. The Frenchman had done 58 laps. After a hard work with his team, JEV need to raise the pace tomorrow.
“Today was my first time at this track and it is really fun to drive, keeping you busy throughout the lap” explained Jean-Eric. “However, my pace was not that good, and we definitely need to look at the data and decide what to do because we’re about a second away from where we should be.”
“As for the tyres, there seemed to be a big difference between the performance of the Prime and the Option, but no problems on this front. Daniel and I ran different set-ups to evaluate various choices and clearly, what he had worked better than mine, so we will keep that in mind tonight.”
