Sahara Force India completed a second day of testing in Jerez as Sergio Perez completed 37 laps in the VJM07. Nico Hulkenberg will get his first run in the car tomorrow.

Day two Statistics:

  • Chassis: VJM07-01
  • Laps: 37 laps
  • Mileage: 164 km
  • Fastest lap: 1:28.376
  • Classification: P5 

Sergio Perez: “Today was a lot more productive than yesterday so in that respect we are making progress as we learn about the car. We still have a long way to go with understanding the complexity of all the systems so it’s important that the next two days with Nico and Daniel give us the information we need before we arrive in Bahrain. It will be only then that we can hopefully start to work on performance.”

Andrew Green, Technical Director: “Our second day in Jerez has been positive as we have continued to build on the work we completed yesterday. We remain on a very steep learning curve, but I’m encouraged with the progress we have made so far and every lap we complete gives us more valuable information. With each run we’ve taken a step forward and been able to build up to doing longer and longer runs. The focus tomorrow will be for more of the same as we give Nico his first day in the car.” (Force India)
