Young driver trio clock up important Friday mileage

Grosjean, a veteran compared to Vergne and Razia, admitted his on-track experience during the morning's session didn't disappoint, despite his running being cut short due to an issue with a developmental clutch part. The GP2 champion, as expected finished much higher up the order, setting a time good enough for twelfth.

“I was looking forward to jumping in the car again this morning and the experience did not disappoint," he confirmed, "I loved every minute of it. It's a track I particularly like; a fantastic old-style circuit, with lots of fans in the grandstand too. We have seen some interesting data on the technical side, which the team is already looking at for next year. I want to spend as much time as I can in the car, and I really love getting behind the wheel – it's a job I love.”

Czech sportscar ace Jan Charouz also participated in FP1 for backmarker team HRT [see story here].
