Paul Ricard testing 3 & 4 March
20 cars were present in the first 2004 official FRV6 test at Paul Ricard High Tech Test Track. Even if some technical problems disturbed DAMS during these sessions, the 3 DAMS drivers left Le Castellet with confidence.
Memo Rojas: "The competition is close, 15 cars in 1 second is quite impressive. I am happy because today we found new things that helped me to improve my driving and understanding of the car. Now I am in the pace and I am quite confident for the beginning of the season. I really enjoy to drive in chicanes and slow corners like that, I really hope to be quick at Monza..."
Neel Jani: "It was a good work session. During these 2 days we have tested many things on the car. We are building a good set up for me. We did not really try to make a lap time, then I am quite surprised and happy to be second. Everything is in a good shape for Monza."
Bruce Lorgere-Roux: "Yesterday morning I was one of the quickest and my test started very well. Unfortunately we discovered today with the long straights that we had engine problems. It was too late to change it so we decided to work all day without looking for a lap time. Except the engine, I feel very good with the car, the set up is perfect for me and apparently I was quick in the corners today, but no chance to get in the top with my engine. Any way it will be fixed for next time."
Next test : Valencia (Spain) 13 & 14 march. <pre> Unofficial top 15 lap times
