Report: Competitive Pace in Bahrain Practice

Checo and Lance underlined the promising pace of the BWT Racing Point F1 Team RP20 in practice for Formula 1’s Bahrain Grand Prix. In the opening session, Checo was able to produce a lap good enough for P3 after a tour completed in 1.30.000, while Lance was P9 after a 1.30.426 effort. Checo would eventually take P4 in FP2 after a timed lap of 1.29.403, while Lance also improved to take P8 with a 1.29.871 effort. “We’ll see how that plays out tomorrow, but I think the most important factor this weekend will be the tyre management. We will go away tonight and look into how we can improve further for tomorrow in qualifying and how the tyre wear can influence strategy in the race.”. We looked on the pace pretty quickly in FP1 and we were able to improve in the more representative FP2 in the night-time conditions.
