Friday, 21 September, XIANGYANG (China): Team Abu Dhabi was once again the dominant force when drivers got their first experience of the 2.23km, 7-pin circuit on the Han River ahead of this weekend’s UIM F1H2O Agile Grand Prix, Xiangyang, with Shaun Torrente posting the fastest time in this afternoon’s 90-minute practice session. “This afternoon was really just about checking that the engine was running well but at the same time not trying to show too much,” Torrente said. “We tested in Italy before coming here and everything went well. It’s a good feeling when you know where you sit with the boat and know what your best set up is and you just hope it is going to be good enough.”
