Daly testing Force India again on Thursday
28 June 2012 – Conor Daly will be back in the cockpit of a Force India Formula 1 car on Thursday, performing the team’s latest straight-line aerodynamic test in England. Once again, the American will be in action at Cotswold Airport in Gloucestershire.
With various sensors attached to the car, GP3 driver Daly – son of ex Grand Prix pilot Derek – will be helping to correlate real time data with wind tunnel readings.
“Formula 1 cars are very complex,” the 20-year-old tells Autoweek. “Just learning how to operate the steering wheel takes time. These tests help me understand what it takes to drive an F1 car and, of course, the biggest contribution I want to make is to the team's ongoing improvement over the season. It's amazing how much work we get through in a day, as I spend most of the time in the car.”
Daly is currently 11th overall in GP3, which is led by New Zealand’s Mitch Evans.
