We have had two private race simulations so far this season and Sebastian Buemi took pole and the race wins in both race simulations.
As well as this Buemi has also topped the time sheets in three of the four pre season tests that we have had this season. This could potentially mean that that the Swiss driver may be finding himself near the front of the field once we hit Beijing.
E. Dams still have tight competition for the number one spot as Virgin Racing and Audi Sport ABT are very close behind the French team, therefore any slip up in the early stages of the season and these teams will capitalise on their mistakes.
However, it is still very early to suggest which team will be on top in a month’s time in China. E. Dams may be finding themselves near the top of the timesheets but we still do not know if teams are hiding their performance.
In addition teams were only allowed three cars in the second race simulation. This affected the race result massively as each team will have four cars per race day; two to start the race and two to finish the race. This meant only 10 cars finished the race from the twenty that started.
E.Dams will be happy with how their progression has gone throughout pre season so far. However, a lot of work can still be done by the other nine teams in order to catch them up before round one.
