I’m very happy!

28.11.2010 Pål Varhaug has just finished his second test day in GP2 in Abu Dhabi, and this day was really good for the 19 year old Norwegian. In today’s afternoon test Pål Varhaug was fifteenth, just one second behind the best laptime of Michael Herck and just six tenths slower than ex F1-driver Romain Grosjean who set the benchmark for the DAMS-drivers earlier this weekend. Today Pål also was faster than drivers like Sam Bird, Karun Chandhok, Esteban Guttierez and Jan Charouz, who also tested for DAMS. -I don’t care where I ended on the timing list, because this was just a test. But the important thing is that I’m very satisfied with my own driving, and the DAMS-team are satisified as well. I could probably have driven faster, but that’s not important now. I have showed what I’m capable of and the team knows it, Pål Varhaug says. Now Pål is hoping to secure the budget to drive the GP2 Asia Series this winter.
