I know I have been quiet since Franck’s race seat was announced, and I should have been following his performance in testing as well as in qualifying yesterday. Apparently rookie’s get a bit of extra time on track which is a really good thing to see.
I saw some of qualifying yesterday, although I never really established which car was Franck on screen, and only caught the last few minutes of Round 2.
I was following live timing though, and spotted that Franck qualified 8th, which is notably above of Danica Patrick - who’s seat he was rumoured to be taking. (This looks unlikely now, but you never know.)
If you are planning to watch the race, then why not join us over on Sidepodcast.com, where as clueless as we are about IRL, it might turn out to be fun.
