Chilton in Force India aero test

Max Chilton samples F1 machinery in Force India aero test
Max Chilton has sampled F1 machinery for the first time after joining Force India for a straight-line aero test at the Kemble airfield.

Chilton, who has spent the current season competing in GP2, was given the chance with none of Force India's own drivers able to attend the test.

Despite an exhaust issue ending the day ahead of schedule, Chilton was able to evaluate a new aerodynamic package ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix as the team gathered valuable data ahead of the night race.

“Today's programme at Kemble was our fourth full-size aerodynamic test of the season,” race support engineer Oliver Knighton said. “We use these days to collect data that helps us understand if the car is performing as the wind tunnel says it should. We were able to record the important aero data, which we will analyse over the next few days.

“I'd like to say a special 'thank you' to Max, who enjoyed his first taste of a Formula One car today. He prepared himself very well and adapted quickly to the procedures and systems on the car, all of which allowed us to make good progress with the programme.”
