Matteo Pellegrino

"I'm obviously very happy about setting the fastest time. I was even very close to the pole position time set by Karthikeyan last Saturday. If I hadn't made a little mistake at the corner during my fastest lap, I could have chipped away a tent. But what I'm most happy about is RC Motorsport team's appreciation for the work that I did here today. They consider my test session on the single seater a very positive one. The car is very impressive. The braking system is a lot more potent than the single seater of the Light category. The 3000 cc engine is more powerful and regardless of its weight, manages to have a higher velocity at the corners. After the end of this season's championship, this test session already makes me reflect upon the next season. My objective is to climb my way up to another category and therefore participate in the World Series by Renault"
