Kazuki Nakajima finished day 1 of Paul Ricard test in 5th position while Gavin Cronje finished at 23th position. The day was interrupted by the rain and fog, but has been mainly windy and clear sky. Both drivers were discovering the GP2 Series and cars and have shown a very interesting adaptation to their car.

Eric Boullier, Technical & Managing Director : "Today we have been able to do everything we had planned on our evaluation program for Kazuki, the result we achieved is quite satisfying, bearing in mind we had 2 red flags interruption during his run on new tyres. Gavin has a little experience in single seater and showed an interesting speed in first sector but he was not lucky as we had to fix an oil leak on his engine."
