Aleksanteri Huovinen had an impressive learning curve after only two days in the F4-T014 as his best time of the day was 1.30,2, 8 tenth faster than on his Day 1.
For the Russian Vladimir Atoev, it is more than 1.4 seconds improvement as he signed a 1.30,2 on his morning new set.
« It has been four very interesting days, the seven drivers showed that they are willing to learn and work hard. This is for most of them the first year in single-seater and we are here to accompany them into this learning process for them to be ready to fight when the time will come. I have to say that for 16 years old drivers, they are all very involved and listening to our advices. I am really looking forward for the next test, to confirm what they have learnt. This is the beginning of a great adventure, the beginning of the SMP F4 Championship »
The next testing session is schedule from February 2nd until February 5th on another Spanish track, the Circuit of Albacete.
