De La Rosa takes positives from difficult day

By on Friday, August 31, 2012

HRT driver Pedro de La Rosa was another driver frustrated by the wet weather, but tried to look for positives on a trying day.

"I was surprised by the large amount of rain that poured down during both sessions. We anticipated the morning session to be less wet and that’s why we made the most of it to complete our only run. We only did a few laps mainly to confirm that the car and the systems worked well, so in the afternoon, with the track in even worse conditions, we decided not to go out as it didn’t contribute anything to us", said the Spaniard.

De La Rosa however was positive despite the short amount of running.

"It’s been almost a month since we drove the car and the positive side was that I was able to get rid of the rust and get a feel for the car. For tomorrow we have an extra set of dry tyres and as today we were unable to test with a full deposit, that will be a priority."
