Set-up test and race simulations: Richelmi in Bahrain prepares the start of the season

The sessions of collective test in the Al Sakhir circuit are particularly important for the GP2 Series drivers because they will officially start the 2014 season in a few weeks in this track. St├ęphane Richelmi continues the test with the DAMS team, with whom he made a very good season last year, and he uses these days for race simulations, long-runs and set-up test that will be very useful during the race.

The temperature of the track remained mild thanks to the clouds and some rain drops that have decreased the times on track. Yesterday, Richelmi made a total of 53 laps with a best time of 1’40″045. Today, the last available session, he recorded another 70 laps, in addition to doing test for starts and pit-stop, short-run and set-up changes, in order to be ready for the official start of the season on 5-6 April.
