Hulkenberg and Sahara Force India fastest on first day of Bahrain test

As teams returned to testing this week at Bahrain International Circuit, Sahara Force India had a good first day, completing 79 laps with a chart-topping time of 1:36.880.

Nico Hulkenberg:

“A very positive and satisfying day. We had a busy programme and we learned a lot. Time in the car is very valuable at the moment and so it feels good to cover so many laps and even complete two long runs at the end of the day. That gave me a chance to see how the car behaves and to start getting a feel for it, which was not something I was able to do in Jerez. It’s great that we’ve already done some set-up work and started to improve the drivability of the car. But it’s still very early stages; we are learning with every lap and we face a very steep learning curve in the coming days. ”
