Adrian Sutil admitted an error on the first day of testing in Jerez, where he lost control of the back of the car. The German was already in the thirty-fifth lap with the C33 car, but only reached the seventh turn, where he collided with a wall on the inside of the track and thus damaged the nose of the car and the front suspension.
Adrian commented on the incident: “With new race cars, it is very difficult to drive at low temperatures. The combination of a cold engine and tires, and a cold turbo memory is much less torque and I just lost control of the car. Luckily, we only replaced the nose of the car, and repaired the suspension. So everything could be fixed, so we will drive again tomorrow. "
This year's rules also allow for new braking over the rear wheel, which, according to the German, is even more difficult: “You have probably noticed that I blocked the wheels in almost all corner entrances today. It smoked almost everywhere, which made me use quite a few sets of tires. We will try to fix that tomorrow, but the engineers have a lot of work to do. ”In the end, Sutil said that they were satisfied with the 94 laps, but of course they still had a lot of work to do.
