Monza Test Round-Up

Track: Monza (Italia)
Drivers: Tom Dillmann, Kamui Kobayashi, Patrick Rocah

Thursday the 17th of March the drivers that will be taking part in the next Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup Championship went on track for the second day of the first official test organized by RST . There were thirty-three vehicles on the circuit of Monza , in Brianza, for the first seasonal appointment after the long winter break. It was also a good occasion to get a deeper knowledge of our new drivers: young Frenchman Tom Dillmann and Brazilian Patrick Rocha. Kamui Kobayashi, confirmed by Toyota in the team from Vicenza, continued increasing his confidence with the Tatuus FR 2.0 and immediately started the work programmed together with our technical staff.
"Certainly, this first test must be considered positive. Kamui and Patrick marked interesting times on both days, generating a favorable feedback for the Team. Regarding Tom, we can say that although he is still very young he showed his talent and capacity and managed to emerge in a context of drivers with greater experience" declared Angelo Rosin soon after the end of the test.
Tom Dillmann: "I am really pleased with the work carried out during the test together with the Team. My chronometric performance was good. I still have to improve my knowledge of the new car."
Kamui Kobayashi: "It was not bad, considering it was the first test. It was important for me to regain confidence with the vehicle after the winter break. I made some slight mistakes which conditioned my overall performance. Anyway, I am satisfied and we have to continue working hard in view of the forthcoming season."
Patrick Rocha : "I have not been on the track since December. I was soon positively impressed by the professionalism demonstrated by the Team. We carried out a good work. On the whole, I am pleased, but we still have to improve."
