Reserve driver of the Renault F1 team Sergey Sirotkin spoke about his feelings after the completed test days in the car RS17 in Bahrain.
“The day passed very well, – told the Russian. – It was a very busy session. It was very nice to drive finally behind the wheel of a car, because I waited so long for this day.
I really enjoyed every second spent in the cockpit, despite the fact that the program was not very interesting from the point of view of the racer.
The new machine is incredibly fast, and I immediately noticed the difference in driving compared to the previous generation chassis.
But you get used to the speeds pretty quick. Can’t wait when it will go to Sochi”.
Sports Director of the Renault F1 Alan Berman praised the work of the Russian racer.
“Today went exactly according to plan, said the Briton. – Sergey made a strong impression, because it very quickly became accustomed to the new speeds and did not allow a single mistake, despite the lack of racing experience since the end of last year.
Today, as yesterday, we are not chasing the best results, and continued to work with the suspension settings, aerodynamics and tires.
I am sure that the work done will give us confidence in the upcoming races”.
