“We can be pleased with what we achieved today, even if we had to stop running with around an hour to go, due to an electrical problem. In the morning, we continued the programme we began yesterday, acquiring useful data relating to the new aero package, with plenty of “in and out” laps. Towards the end of the morning, we did some decent running, looking at chassis work. Then, after the lunch break, Max set off to do a race distance, until towards the end of the run, the car stopped. Nevertheless, another day with plenty of laps to learn from.”

“Another good day as we did a lot of laps. From my perspective, the most important part was this afternoon’s race distance, when the pace looked very promising. It was my first time driving the car with the latest updates and they seemed to be working very well and I felt very comfortable with it. On Sunday, I get my last chance to drive before Melbourne, so it will be important to get in as many miles as possible, try to improve the car and increase our understanding of the overall package.”
