The team spent the morning running through a series of aero tests, taking advantage that the Circuit de Catalunya is an aero-dependent tract.
The second of Formula 1’s three pre-season Spanish tests kicked off today at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya, an aero-dependent tract that will provide teams with a clearer idea of the state of their preparations ahead of the 2013 season.
After lunch, Sergio began a series of longer runs to evaluate the effects of the mechanical set-up changes. He also took the opportunity to more fully acclimatise himself to the cockpit controls and team communications that he will start to encounter in the races.
The afternoon concluded with a live pitstop practice. It was a productive day.
What’s next Sergio concludes his running. Jenson takes over for Thursday and Friday.
