Di Resta get first run in VJM04 in testing at Jerez
Jerez (Spain): Paul di Resta got his first
run in the VJM04 as the Force India Formula One team continued
its preparations for the 2011 World Championship season.
Picking up from Adrian Sutil`s programme, Paul
concentrated on tyre evaluation and establishing baseline
set-ups for the remainder of the testing programme.
Paul completed 64 laps in total, bringing the VJM04 total
mileage to almost 700km since its debut on Thursday.
"Today was really about me getting used to the new car,
plus getting as much information about the new tyres and
set-up options as possible. We`ve still got a bit of work to
do, but today was about determining the right way to go," Paul
said after the day`s proceedings.”
"We did find that there were a couple of issues with
getting temperature in the brakes on some set-ups, and on the
final run of the day I locked up into turn nine and went off
into the gravel. Overall I think we can be fairly positive
with the progress we`ve made over the past couple of days and
have a good idea of where we can go tomorrow," he added.
