Jules Bianchi insists he has improved as a driver on the back of a successful run in the latest F1 Young Driver Test at Magny-Cours.
The Frenchman topped the times on all three days of running, taking to the track with Ferrari on Tuesday and Thursday being at the wheel for Force India on Wednesday.
Thursday's running gave Bianchi the chance to sample the Ferrari F2012 in wet conditions after light rain early in the morning and having once again led the way, he said he was pleased with the way in which the week had panned out.
"After these three days of testing I feel ready to race in Formula 1,” he said. “I grew up a lot and learned a great deal driving with Ferrari and Force India, so it has been a good experience all-round.
“In the morning [on Thursday], I did a few laps to get a feel for the car on the intermediate tyres and even though there was not much grip, it was no bad thing to get some experience in the wet, after two days of dry testing. After a few hours the track dried and we carried on with our programme, centred mainly on aerodynamic measurement and setup evaluation.
“I think the work was constructive for me and for the team. We tried to improve the balance of the car and looked at some things that could be useful in the upcoming races.”
