Team principal Valmiro Presenzini commented: “We have been lucky with the weather. We had two wonderful days that enabled us to complete an intensive programme.
“Mehdi ran for 400 kilometres without any technical issues. We tested new dampers and this resulted in setting our record lap-time here at Magione.”
Bennani echoed: “I had not driven since Macau and it was nice to get back behind the wheel of a racing car.
“We worked a lot on the set-up and I am pleased with the job done. I have the feeling that we are on the right path to improving the car’s performance.”
