Feb.9 (Williams) Team and drivers report on day three of the official Formula 1 pre-season test at Jerez de la Frontera in south western Spain.
Mark Gillan, Chief Operations Engineer:
I am very pleased with both Bruno’s first day in the car and the team’s performance today. We managed to finish the whole test programme without any issues, completing 125 laps in total. Bruno’s feedback has been very precise and we now look forward to continuing to understand and optimise the car set-up during the final day of testing here in Jerez, tomorrow.
It was a great day today. Although there is a lot of work to do outside the car as well as in it, it was very satisfying to finally get behind the wheel. We have had a very productive day and managed to cover all of the things we needed to. We found some interesting things out about the tyres in particular. I feel that there is a lot of potential in the FW34 and also in myself driving the car. The team has done a great job and I’m happy we have had a trouble-free day. I’m now looking forward to continuing our test programme tomorrow to learn more about the car.
The Williams F1 Team will be back on track tomorrow, Friday 10 February, with Bruno Senna continuing in the FW34 for the final day of the test.
