Britain F1 in-season test: Bianchi: Fastest time never hurts

Jules Bianchi admitted it could only be good for him that he set the fastest time for Ferrari on the second day of testing at Silverstone
Jules Bianchi admitted it could only be good for him that he set the fastest time for Ferrari on the second day of testing at Silverstone.

With Kimi Raikkonen sitting the test out after his crash in the British Grand Prix, Bianchi impressed on Wednesday by setting the quickest time of the day. Speaking after completing 89 laps in the F14 T, Bianchi said he felt that he had performed well both in terms of pace and consistency.

“I think I was consistent and doing good lap times,” Bianchi said. “Obviously the track is always different so it's quite difficult to always compare everything but it's always good to do some good lap times and be consistent so I'm pretty happy with today, yes.”

However, Bianchi played down any attempts to compare his time to Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen from the weekend.

“Obviously it's always better to do a good job and a good lap time. Honestly it's different because they were running in FP2. The wind was different and as I said you cannot compare but it's always good to do a good lap time.”

Having been driving for Marussia on Tuesday, Bianchi said it was easily noticeable where the difference in performance comes from.

“It's much different. When I went out on the first run I was impressed obviously because it's higher downforce; it's different from what I'm used to now. But I think we have to keep working with Marussia and one day I hope we will get there.”
