Willis: Progress down to the drivers

Willis: Progress down to the drivers

Hispania tech boss Geoff Willis has praised his two drivers, saying they are almost solely responsible for the progress that the team has made.

Bruno Senna and Karun Chandhok faced a tough task at the start of this season, as the two rookies joined the Formula One grid with a brand new team that failed to take part in a single test in the pre-season.

As such it was always going to be difficult for the team to catch even the midfield outfits, however, slowly but surely that is what Hispania are doing as they close the gap.

And Willis reckons that's down to his drivers.

"Good," he told grandprix.com when asked about the progress of his two drivers.

"You can clearly see we have been maintaining pace and if anything compared to the leading cars, closing up. We were 6.5% off the pace and now we are typically 4.8-5% off with qualifying time.

"The car is fundamentally the same, so I think that has come from the drivers. Both of them have worked well with the team and have a good working relationship."
