JEV discovers the night
For the first time Jean-Eric Vergne drove a Formula 1 at night! The Frenchman discovered this specific Singapore track today. With 25 laps during the first practice session then 31 laps in the second, he spent a long time on track. 17th in the afternoon, 18th in the evening, the Toro Rosso driver takes its marks.
“This is definitely the hardest new circuit I have come across so far this season, with so many corners and the fact it’s really hot” said Jean-Eric. “I really enjoyed this whole experience of racing on a street circuit at night, but at first I was making a lot of mistakes on what is a very long lap. But I am getting used to it, I brought the car back in one piece and I know I will improve tomorrow.”
“Overall, the car did not feel too bad, so I think if we can improve it a bit and I learn my way round a bit better, there should be more to come for the rest of the weekend.”
