The new pilot for the development of the Renault Artem Markelov shared his impressions from the beginning of the cooperation with the team from Enstone.
In the pre-season tests in Barcelona last year Vice-champion of Formula 2 is present in the pits, working with engineers and watching the fighting racers Carlos Sainz and Nico.
“I feel the same way as before – a professional pilot only more media, more people in the team. At the moment my goal is to work on the simulator, observation and assistance in the development of machines,” – said Artem in the program “First place” on the radio “Country.”
On the question of whether it will be allowed behind the wheel of a race car of Renault, the Russian said: “Yes. Now a plan, so I can’t say exactly when this will happen.”
Also Artem told about his first working day in the team from Enstone.
“We met the base, and then in Barcelona, the team held a briefing, after which battle racers went to prepare for departure on the route and my task was the review of the data with the engineers. In fact, it’s hard, because you’re standing in the pits and just look, while getting a lot of information, which never worked, trying to help and learn more than you know at the moment.
In-house team while not feel. I think that more than all I know.”
