“Fernando is one of the best drivers, so as expected, he did great on the tests, – quotes the AUTOSPORT Burza. – He adapted quickly to the car, requiring a special style of piloting, and has provided the team with important and accurate feedback.
To compare the lap time is impossible, as all our pilots have worked in different programs, with varied track conditions. All these factors have a major impact on the result. But as you can see, the gap between combat pilots and beginner was minimal. So Alonso really did well, it was a pleasure to work with.”
