Chilton sets 6th fastest time on day 1 of young drivers` test
Abu Dhabi: British youngster Max Chilton did a decent job by setting the sixth fastest lap time for Sahara Force India during the young drivers` test at the Yas Marina circuit, on Wednesday.
Driving on an F1 circuit for the first time, Chilton completed a total of 81 laps in the VJM04 and his best lap time was 1:43.016, the sixth fastest of the day.
Johnny Cecotto Jr will get his first experience of a Formula One car before Chilton takes over for the final day of running on Thursday.
"I had been looking forward to this moment all my life and it definitely exceeded my expectations. It`s scary how quick you can go through the high-speed corners, but the car is really well balanced and it feels very calm.”
"Working with such a big crew was also a new experience for me and it makes life so easy because there`s a person for every job and you can change things really quickly. I want to say thanks to the guys for a great day and I can`t wait to jump back in the car on Thursday," Chilton said.
