Cerruti deprived of Alfa's progress by a pedal issue
18 June 2016
The Alfa Romeo Giulietta was one of the stars of today's free practice and qualifying sessions at Oschersleben. The car of Petr Fulin was fourth fastest in free practice 1 and then made it easily to Q2, proving the significant progress made both in terms of performance and reliability by the car developed by Romeo Ferraris.
"It is nice and rewarding to see that all our work is paying off," commented Michela Cerruti, the driver that has been developing the car since the start of the project, "We are now much closer to the front-runners in terms of performance and have improved much in reliability. We still have a number of things to improve, in electronics for instance, but we are definitely on the right course."
Unfortunately, the Italian driver could not exploit to the fullest the potential of her car. "An issue with the pedals has arisen in Michela's car," explained Mulsanne Racing team principal Claudio Bortoletto. "It is a mechanical problem that was hindering her driving, but unfortunately it is a relatively complex repair that we cannot perform out of the factory."
