Force India: The programme was cut short by a drivetrain issue 22 February, 2014 Sergio Perez Force India VJM07 Sergio Perez remained at the wheel of the VJM07 today as Sahara Force India concluded its first week of testing in Bahrain. Day Four Statistics: Chassis: VJM0701 Laps: 19 laps Mileage: 120 km Fastest lap: 1:39.258 Sergio Perez: “It’s a shame to lose the track time this afternoon, but I think we can feel quite positive about what we have learned this week. Every lap in the car gives us more information and we are always trying something new. I was not able to do the long runs we planned this afternoon so it’s important to do those next week. We also need to start pushing the performance and set-up work, which is not really an area we have focussed on that much yet.” Otmar Szafnauer, Chief Operating Officer: “Although we didn’t cover a large number of laps today, we were able to complete some aero work this morning and evaluate some more set-up items. The programme was cut short by a drivetrain issue just before lunch, which confined us to the garage for the rest of the afternoon. With the amount of work involved in resolving the problem and the lack of time available, we decided it was better to regroup and put our efforts into achieving our objectives next week.” Subbed by AJN.
