FR3.5 »

Duran confident after practice boost.

Salvador Duran was satisfied to come away from the second day of testing for the World Series by Renault round at Silverstone with the fastest time, the Mexican driver now hoping to replicate that in qualifying.

A prompt turnaround for both himself and the Interwetten Racing team, Duran ended day one of practice disappointed in 15th place, but the last of the four sessions today saw him come away with the best lap so far.

Indeed, Duran is pleased to have found more pace in the car after what has been a difficult start to the weekend.

“The team have done an awesome job,” he told Radio. “We were struggling yesterday but we kept working on the car. We are working towards better things and it was a good result, but we need to be improving further for qualifying now.”

A British Formula 3 graduate, Duran is also excited to be racing in the UK again and returning to one of his favourite circuits in the process.

“I like this circuit. It is one of my favourites and coming back to here is always nice. I loved racing here, so hopefully we can find good form here and I can like England just a bit more.”
