Remy Gardner on the pace in opening sessions at Sepang
Remy Gardner began the 17th round of the 2017 World Championship at Sepang by finishing FP1 half a second back from the top ten, but he remains fully confident of improving after the initial encouraging work.
In the afternoon, he powered through the rain to seal 11th, and now looks on to tomorrow’s action, which begins at 10:55 local time or 04:55 in central Europe, where he intends to make further progress.
“We had a decent day in Malaysia. In FP1 it was really hot and we got some good dry track time. We have a few small issues to amend, and it was unfortunate that we couldn’t have a dry FP2 because I really wanted to get those things fixed before the weekend advances anymore. We are on the back foot a little bit with regards to that, however, I am sure that we can resolve all of this very soon. In the wet, we still need to improve and it’s a similar situation to the dry. Whatever, the condition, I still think we can have a positive weekend and overall, the first day has not been too bad.”
