Remy gets up to speed on sunny day one at Silverstone
Remy Gardner had a solid opening day at Silverstone, as he built up his speed and cut 1.073 from his FP1 time to seize 16th after delivering a promising performance on day one. The action resumes tomorrow at 10:55 local time with FP3.
“The first day went quite positively for me at Silverstone, and the test that we did in Austria recently has really helped us and I can tell. In FP2, we used the number 3 tyre and it took me a while to understand where the most grip was. Then, I pitted and we made another change which made me feel a lot better. I returned to the track and I could see on the sector times that I was strong in the first two parts of the track, but then every lap, there would be traffic which would end my progress. It’s disappointing but we know that we are not far from the top and my ideal time is good. Tomorrow, we will work a bit more and then I am sure that we can qualify well for the race on Sunday.”
