Rowland quickest at Jerez
Fortec Motorsports drivers dominated the second day of the Formula Renault 3.5 Series test at Jerez as Oliver Rowland set the fastest time ahead of his team-mate Sergey Sirotkin and Pierre Gasly (Arden Motorsport). Team DAMS’ Carlos Sainz was quickest in the afternoon followed by Norman Nato.
I did a pretty good lap this morning, but there’s still a bit more to come. – said Rowland – This afternoon, our pace on used tyres wasn’t that far off the pace set by the DAMS cars on new tyres. However, it’s testing and things will be different once the season gets underway. Let’s hope that with the experience of Sergey, I can learn from him and he can do the same and we can improve our performances. Tomorrow I’ll be focussing on doing a race simulation.
The final day of Formula Renault 3.5 Series collective testing will take place tomorrow before the season gets underway on 11-13 April in Monza.
