2014 年F1世界選手権、第6戦モナコGPのフリー走行が行われました。午前中のフリー走行1回目はドライのなか38周を走行。一方、午後のセッションは直前に降った雨のせいで路面がウエット状態で始まりました。可夢偉は他のチーム同様に路面が乾くのを待ち、セッション終了残り6分を切ってから走行。そのため限られた周回数となりましたが、午前中からの進歩が感じられるセッションとなりました。













Kamui Kobayashi, car #10, chassis CT05-#02: “38 laps in FP1 meant we were able to complete a good programme and made some decent progress throughout the session. We started with a similar grip issue to what we saw in Spain, but we made a few mechanical changes and it definitely improved, particularly in the high speed sections. That also helped take out some of the understeer I had in the first couple of runs but we still needed to work on traction and managing tyre temps so we had another look at that in FP2 and also took a step forward with both of those in the second session.

“Like a few of the other teams we waited to start our FP2 runplan until there was a clear dry line which meant we had to shorten the programme a lot, but it was safer to do that than go out on inters and risk damaging the car. That’s not ideal, obviously, but with about five minutes left of the session we went out on a set of supersofts and had enough time for a couple of timed laps which gives us some data on that compound that will be useful for Saturday and Sunday.

“Even with FP2 compromised like that it’s still been quite a positive day. We’ve brought a lot of what we learnt at the test in Spain here and I’m sure that we’ll be able to put that into action on Saturday.”
