Sutil Concludes Testing in Valencia for Force India

Valencia, Feb 4 (PTI): Adrian Sutil concluded the three-day pre-season testing for his Formula One team Force India here, posting the second quickest time of the day after completing more than 100 laps on the track. 

Sutil was back on duty for Force India on the final day of the first pre-season test in Valencia, Spain. The German drove the VJM03 for the first time after the tyre test in Abu Dhabi, last November.

As with Paul di Resta and Nico Hulkenberg over the previous two days, Sutil's programme was focussed principally on collecting further data on the performance of the Pirelli tyres under different set-ups and fuel loads.

Sutil clocked 1:13.201, second behind the Lotus Renault GP car of Robert Kubica.
The team will now move to Jerez for the second test next week from February 10 to 13 where the VJM04 will be run for the first time.

"It felt good to be in the car again after a few months away. Everything went pretty smoothly, as we expected with the VJM03, so we could complete the work we wanted to do. Paul and Nico had collected a lot of data on the tyres in the previous two days, so my aim today was to continue this work on alternative set-ups and fuel loads," Sutil said.

"We got all the information we needed and I feel like we understand the tyre performance pretty well now. Having got back into the car again I now can't wait to get my first taste of the VJM04 next week in Jerez," he added.
