The promising results that Force India obtained in the morning were not reflected at all in the afternoon session. The team chose to not to shoot with the compound softer in the afternoon and look for pace on the long runs, where they suffered more from the account to balance the balance of the car due to a wind which proved problematic for various teams, but especially for them.
Nico Hülkenberg was the pilot’s most prominent team in this first day of the Grand Prix of Great Britain at the end of the first session in an excellent third place with a 1:32.4, in the evening, stayed at a fifteenth place. The German pilot remarked that the compounds don’t offer a performance difference noticeable, and expected that the wind does not desluzca his performance on Saturday:
“it Has been a Friday pretty standard, even though we’ve had very strong winds which have made it difficult to really conditions by the afternoon. The times do not tell the full story, since we have not tested the soft tyres in the afternoon. Between the two sessions, we tested the three compounds, although there is a big difference in sensations between them”.
“We have some areas to improve, but in general I’m pretty happy with the balance of the car. It will be important to find a way to reduce the effects of wind on the car, and we hope to find a bit more performance for tomorrow“.
The mexican Sergio Perez was a bit of a consequence of your partner on this day of Friday, being eighth in the first session and 16th in the second. Perez is optimistic about the options of the team at Silverstone, and believes that to improve the long run is a fundamental task to be more competitive on Sunday
“it Has been an intense day, and now the team has enough information to process. We have to make some important decisions, in particular for the Sunday race, but we have learned enough to make the right decisions”.
“we Were able to shoot in all types of compounds, and I feel that we are in a good position for the weekend. We have to focus on our pace in the long runs; there is where we have room for improvement, and is the main area in which we will work tonight”.
