Fastest lap: Jean-Eric Vergne (see above)
Red Bull Junior driver Jean-Eric Vergne was back at the wheel of an RB7 again today for the second day of the Young Driver Test at the Yas Marina Circuit.
As he continued to get used to the RB7, Jean-Eric once again set the fastest time. However, the day was less productive for the team than yesterday due to sensor issues affecting running in the morning and a KERS issue in the afternoon.
Head of Race Engineering Ian Morgan said: “We had quite a disjointed morning due to some sensor issues which interrupted our run programme and this afternoon we lost more track time with a KERS issue. The issues are resolved now and at least we were able to complete some laps which provided useful data, hopefully tomorrow will be more productive.”
Jean-Eric will drive again tomorrow for the final day of the test.
