Dario Balestri made an very impressive improvement over the last few days, altrough he still had some problems in his third run (they tried to find an optimum stteing for the Orion presisur device) and for the 4th run Dario and his mechanic decided to remove it and have a 2 stop strategy.
This decision was a wise one as he now claimed the 8th position.

For the people who are intrested in which driver is using what material: here is an XLS file.
From that file we can see that (apart from the full supported drivers as Collari, Balestri and Pietsch etc.) a lot of fast guys are using the Kawahara tires, they have the best compromise between traction and wear on this track.
And the Kawahara tires don’t seem to be very sensitive to ambient temprature changes.
