FP1 (Practice Conditions Dry. Air 23°. Ground 38°)
P3 Alex De Angelis (1’29.542, + 0.791 from P1)
A crash in the first lap does not prevent Alex from pushing hard and setting the third fastest lap time in lap 9.
P16 Josh Hook (1’31.536, + 2.785 from P1)
For the first time at the Sachsenring, Josh becomes familiar with the circuit and in the last laps constantly improves.
FP2 (Practice Conditions Dry. Air 27°. Ground 44°)
P6 Alex De Angelis (1’29.209,+0.662 from P1)
Alex pushed hard in the second session and improved his morning lap time by 3 tenths of a second but crashed in lap 6 at turn 4 when he was in fifth position.
P11 Josh Hook (1’30.255, +1.708 from P1)
Important steps forward for Josh who lowers his FP1 time by almost a second and a half. Also for him, however, a crash at turn 4 that forced the Australian to quit FP2 when he was in 11th.
P7 – Alex De Angelis
I started out very well right away and improved the morning’s lap time thanks to the changes we made on the setup. Then I found some traffic on track and maybe I got nervous. We still have a lot of confidence ahead of tomorrow’s E Pole.
P15 – Josh Hook
It was the first time on this circuit for me and it was not easy to gain confidence especially in the second sector. In FP2 I felt I could improve lap by lap but unfortunately, I crashed. We will try to understand why by analyzing the data.
