Hulk picking up where he left off…on form

Share This Post

Nice to see Nico Hulkenberg lead the day at the Bahrain testing session in his new Force India. Red Bull and Renault did experience more issues today and Sebstian Vettel said that it seems like they fix one issue and another pops up…basically the reason for testing I guess.

Although Red Bull, Toro Rosso and Lotus completed just 27 laps, Renault says they’re good and are ready to run as many laps as the teams would like. Does that hint to Red Bull’s issues being squarely Red Bull’s issues and not Renault engine issues?

Testing times from day 1:
