Last day of Test at Alcaniz and now ... straight to the beginning of the 2010 Championship
Today is the last day of official collective test for the World Series by Renault 3.5 circus, which is now ready to start the 2010 season in Motorland circuit in Spain on 17-18 April. In the same track, the Draco Driver Nathanael Berthon signed yesterday the 2nd times of the day, even if he is a rookie, and today he has replicated his excellent performance.
Today's tests were aimed at finding the best set up in conditions of downforce. In the morning session, Berthon has maintained the pole position with 1'42"893 until 11:30 am, despite he used old tires, then he has benn passed only by Pentus who had new tires. Significantly improved the time of Julian Leal this morning, but he could not exploit the set of new tires because there was the yellow flag on track, and then his 1'43 "620 should be viewed with old tires.
In the afternoon, having completed the set of new tires available, Draco team used the session to do some tests on the set up and simulations.
Adriano Morini, Team Owner:
"I am very satisfied about these tests. Berthon is a strong and fast driver, Leal has made extraordinary improvements. We tried different solutions, now we expect the first race."
Nathanael Berthon, Draco Driver:
"This morning I was very fast and I had a good time. In the afternoon I tried a race simulation and I saw that I need to improve on some sectors, but the test is positive."
Julian Leal, Draco Driver:
"In the first session today I had a good time with old tires, but I could not exploit the new set because of the yellow flag. This afternoon we had not new trains to use and so we just tried some set up. I am very happy because I have a good feeling with the team and so we can work together to achieve important goals."
