BIRD'S EYE VIEW OF OULTON PARK

Sam Bird came away from the latest Formula Renault test day at Oulton Park with a very positive outlook after finishing 3rd overall and top rookie again. "We tried out many different settings" he commented "and I was treating the exercise as if it were a qualifying session. In each session, I was always P2 or P3 on the leaderboard and am generally quite satisfied with that.

"this is the first official test at Oulton Park for me -- it is a very challenging track, and one I really enjoy driving -- I had a double win here in FBMW last year and it holds good memories for me. Naturally, it is different in the Renault, but I think we learned a lot about the set up and I'm really looking forward to the next race here on May 14. Qualifying takes places on my Dad's birthday, so I hope to give him a great grid position as his present (beats spending money!)"
