Schumacher content with drier conditions in Jerez

By on

Wednesday saw better weather in Jerez where Michael Schumacher participated in his second day of testing with the GP2 series spec chassis. Fortunately today was much drier than the first day, which saw Schumacher complete longer runs on dry spec tires and setup.

“We made a big step forward today as we were able to drive for around 90 percent of the time in the dry which was an improvement on the track conditions from yesterday. We achieved two long runs which went very well and provided consistent data for the GP2 guys to evaluate. The forecast looks even better for tomorrow so we can look forward to a good final day," said Michael Schumacher.

GP2 Series Technical director Didier Perrin added: “Despite the weather this has been a productive day, which was vital as we could not really complete our programme on the first day: thanks to Michael’s impressive feedback we now have the technical orientations for the rear suspension. Hopefully tomorrow’s weather will allow us to add more long runs to our programme, and give us even more information for the next car.”

Tomorrow will be the concluding day for this special test session.
