Bourdais Tests at Paul Ricard

Newman-Haas-Lanigan driver Sebastian Bourdais tested the STR at Paul Ricard in France.
Bourdais completed 142 laps of the 2D short 3.593 km circuit aimed to replicate the characteristics of the Monaco Grand Prix circuit. Bourdais’ best lap was a 1:07.743s.

Today, there were no mechanical problems, hence the large number of laps. The programme consisted of evaluating Bridgestone Potenza tyre compounds and doing long runs, while also evaluating a couple of new aerodynamic and mechanical components.

Tomorrow, all the teams switch to a longer configuration of the Paul Ricard circuit in order to simulate the Montreal track for the Canadian Grand Prix.
Scott Speed was also there. I get the feeling that Scott Speed will be in a Champ Car or the IRL series next year.
