The pilot of Renault Jolyon Palmer said that during the first training in Japan, he was faced with the problem of traffic due to the fact that all the riders tried to test their cars before the track fell the rain.
“During the first workout on the track was a serious traffic, but we were able to test different settings and to choose a good direction for further work, said Palmer, who finished in 15th place. Great that we managed to break in the car on the ground, because tomorrow the third training rain is expected.
Despite the rain, the level of grip in the second session was good, but we decided to keep the tires, because on Saturday again promised rain.”
Nico Hulkenberg, who showed the eighth time of the day, said: “the First training went well. We knew that after lunch, it rains, therefore I tried to perform a max test.
The balance of the machine suits me – not to say that I was unhappy with them.
It makes no sense to talk much about the second session because the track was wet and we decided to save tyres for Saturday.”
