European GP FP1-2
Positive day for Balda, fourth in Valencia on his birthday
The European Grand Prix started today with the double free practice session.
In the morning the pouring rain left the track completely wet, compromising the session. The Balda, who turned 24 today, was very fast in these conditions and finished with the tenth time.
In the afternoon, the track gradually dried but not completely and the drivers then took part in the second free practice in difficult conditions. Once again, the Italian driver demonstrated his speed and adaptability and was among the fastest, finishing with the fourth best time in 1: 36.965.
Lorenzo Baldassarri, 4th, 1: 36.965 (+0.161)
“Today we tried everything. In the morning we worked in the rain and in the afternoon the track was practically dry. The sensations were good, both in FP1 in the wet and in FP2 in the dry. The important thing is that we have already found a good set-up for the rest of the weekend. We are sure we can set a good lap time tomorrow”
