Formula Two Champion Dean Stoneman praised by Patrick Head

Williams legendary Director of Engineering Patrick Head has praised 2010 FIA Formula Two Champion Dean Stoneman following the Briton’s test with the team at Abu Dhabi last week.

Stoneman, who earned the test as part of his prize for winning the F2 title, undertook aero development work in the early stages of the day but soon impressed with his feedback and outright pace as the afternoon gave him more scope to explore the limits of Williams’ FW32 challenger.

“Dean started by conducting some aero test work on the car which required fixed speed running on the straight, so a number of slow laps,” Patrick explained. “He was able to begin some fast laps at midday, and progressively brought his times down, exploring the capabilities of the car, engine and tyres.

“It was clear to me that his times progressed on each run, even on older tyres, my impression being that the lap times would have continued to reduce with further running.

“Dean was calm and unfazed by the step up in speeds and performance over an F2 car, and after the day his comments to the engineers fitted well with those of our race drivers. I hope Dean gets the opportunity to progress to GP2, as I think he has strong talent and is clearly a great competitor. We shall be watching closely.”
