BAHRAINI racer Hussain Hassan continued to impress yesterday in winter testing at Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia, Spain.
Hussain clocked a best lap time of one minute 43.30 seconds around the 4.005-kilometre track. It was an improvement from his previous best of 1:44.01.
He completed 100 laps of work yesterday, which meant he gained more than 400km of experience in the Formula F4 Academy’s Formula Renault 1.6 car.
He concluded yesterday’s test in the late afternoon.
Hussain is in Valencia with the support of Praga Global for young drivers. The 17-year-old started his racing career in 2014, competing in the Rotax Junior category in local karting.
Now a prominent member of the Bahrain-based Absolute Racing team, he now competes at the highest levels of international karting while also making his name in other race categories.
