MARUSSIA Virgin Racing’s Jérôme D’Ambrosio first day on the Buddh International Circuit, New Delhi ended with a crash.
He said: “The afternoon session ended early for me as I made a mistake out of turn 11 and hit the wall, damaging the rear wing and right rear corner a bit. I was running fine until then. We have lost some track time but we still have tomorrow to make up for it, so that will be the plan.”
John Booth, Dinnington-based Team Principal, said he’d been impressed with the layout of the circuit, saying: “The drivers are enjoying this track, however it has caught a number of them out during the two sessions today.
“Jérôme ended up being one of the drivers that was caught out by the track, however I’m sure he will maximise his time looking through the data and completing his final preparations ahead of qualifying.”
