Mugello (Italy), May 4 (IANS) Sahara Force India had a busy final day at the Formula One mid-season testing here as Paul Di Resta and Nico Hulkenberg shared the duties in the VJM05.

Di Resta, who lost track time Wednesday after having hydraulic issues with the car, drove 34 laps Thursday at the Mugello Circuit.

Hulkenberg took to the cockpit in the afternoon, completing 55 laps in dry conditions.

“I think we have learned quite a lot and it is a good way to end the test with a busy afternoon. There was a lot to get through, but the main priority was on understanding the car we have here and making sure we feel ready for Barcelona.

“There is a lot of data to go through before we get there and we also have to look at how the different tyre compounds behaved, but overall I am pleased with the day’s work,” said Hulkenberg, who was in the car for the first time in the test.”

The Spanish Grand Prix is scheduled for May 13.
