Jarno Trulli says he’s “very happy” with the new power steering system Lotus used at the Hungaroring today.

Trulli has struggled with the steering on the Lotus since the beginning of the season.

After using it for the first time in today’s practice sessions Trulli said: “I’m very happy.

“I want to thank the whole team, everyone at the factory and in the race team because they have all been patient with me and have worked hard to give me the new power steering system and a car that I can really feel.

“As soon as I pulled out this morning it felt so much better than before so today I?ve been able to start rebuilding my confidence in the car, and working on all the little changes and improvements that help me to find a set-up I can really work with.

“It?s been a really positive day and for that my thanks go to everyone in the team.”

Trulli ended the second practice session four-tenths of a second quicker than team mate Heikki Kovalainen who has out-qualified him eight to one in 2011 so far.
