Vallelunga Test Round-Up

Date: 08~09.03.2005
Track: Vallelunga (Italia)
Drivers: Matteo Chinosi, Davide Rigon

Yesterday the two-day-test organized in Vallelunga came to an end. The teams and drivers that will be taking part in the next Formula Renault 2.0 Italia Championship were present and Prema went on track with his official driver, Italian Matteo Chinosi and with Davide Rigon, from Vicenza, because our Japanese driver Kamui Kobayashi cannot take part in the tests, as established in the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup Championship Regulations.
"It was a really positive and important test in view of the forthcoming season. After the long winter break these two days allowed our drivers to return on track" said Team Manager Grazia Troncon. "Matteo had a good performance on both days, even if some mistakes due to his lack of experience prevented him from showing his real potentialities. It was different for Davide. We asked him to carry out a shake down of the car that will be driven by Kobayashi. From the very beginning he adapted to the working methods of our team and obtained considerable results. It was our first tests after repeated delays due to bad weather conditions."
Drivers' opinions were very similar.
Matteo Chinosi: "I am quite satisfied with the work carried out, even if today my two distractions did not allow me to complete the working plan. Yesterday, during the first official test organized by Renault Sport Italia, the performance was positive. I was not able to get advantage of new tyres, I must work and learn with the team in order to get the best."
Davide Rigon: "I am very pleased because Prema allowed me to test with them. We worked well and I was constantly among the fastest drivers with used tyres. I still have some problems to take advantage of new tyres, anyway, I feel satisfied with this two-day-test."
