Sergio Perez clocked up 57 laps in Bahrain as he completed the first of two days of testing in the VJM07 this week.

Day Three Statistics:

  • Chassis: VJM07-01
  • Laps: 57 laps
  • Mileage: 308 km
  • Fastest lap: 1:37.367
  • Classification: P5 

Sergio Perez: “Although I did two days of testing in Jerez, today was my first proper experience of the car with everything working as planned. There was a small delay this morning, but the rest of the day was interesting and we were able to do some good work in preparation for Melbourne. The first time I drove the car in Jerez it felt very different, but after today I am already getting used to the feeling. There’s less dowforce this year and lots of power so it’s an interesting challenge.”

Otmar Szafnauer, Chief Operating Officer: “It has been a useful day for the team and the first chance for Sergio to do some baseline set-up work in the VJM07. There were a few small issues which slowed our progress this morning, but the afternoon was more productive and we were able to complete a long run before the end of the day. Sergio will remain in the car for tomorrow and we will try and concentrate on more long runs.”
