First practice report

18 05 2013

The first practice session completed without incident, but shortened due to weather conditions delaying events.

It was raining heavily with very slippery conditions and at times minimal visibility due to spray. Occasionally all that could be seen ahead was a wall of spray.

The car feels great – very responsive and very powerful – a little too much power coming out of corners had the front sledging wide – using a slow in fast out approach very definitely in these conditions. Especially on the Nordschleife as there were streams of water running across many parts of the track.

Getting the car back in one piece was my goal and that achieved now I feel much more relaxed – looking forward to qualifying in about an hour.
