Marit had a good free practice posting 4th best time 0,6 second behind the man in first, three time World Champion Phillippe Chiappe. - We had a good day on the water, testing two different engines and a few props, stated chief mechanic Fabio Comparato after the free practice.
The team went out in the start of the session, but came up after about 10 minutes to change engine. After about 15 minutes Marit was back in the water and started testing propellers. She pushed down the laptimes little by little and posted her best time in the very last lap of the free practice. The boat balanced nicely on the water. - I'm quite happy with today's performance. We are so far in a very safe engine set up since it's only free practice and will push a bit harder tomorrow, says Marit from the pit in Abu Dhabi.
The second free practice will take place at 10.15, local time tomorrow, and followed by BRM Official Qualifying at 15.30. Follow us live at www.f1h2o.com and see our updates on instagram during the day. instagram:f1marit
