Alan Permane, Trackside Operations Director: "The power unit failed to work correctly today. We managed to do some very limited running to do some aero mapping work but at about mid-afternoon the power unit failed completely which meant the end of today’s running and the end of very disappointing two days. We must now focus on the next race and will work hard towards China."
