NEWS STORY
16/10/2016

Pierre Gasly has completed three days of 2017 tyres testing for Pirelli and Red Bull at the Yas Marina circuit.

The French youngster, who is hoping to secure the GP2 title here next month, was Red Bull's sole representative at the three-day test completing a total of 277 laps - just under a thousand miles - in a 2015 car modified to simulate 2017 levels of downforce.

Having completed 81 laps on the first day (Friday), in ideal conditions where temperatures reached 36 degrees C (air) and 47 degrees C (track), Gasly completed a further 103 laps yesterday and 93 today.

Red Bull is back in action here early next month (Nov 2/3) for a two-day wet test, while Ferrari concludes the programme with a three day slick tyre test which gets underway on November 14, before all the teams get to try the proposed tyres for a one-day test on November 29.
