Sam Michael, Technical Director
With plenty of rain here today, both cars went through a series of wet set-up tests throughout the two sessions. The limited dry running still allowed us to check rear wing level, brake cooling and engine cooling.
It was good to be back in the car after what feels like a long time. The only problem I had today was the KERS not working in the afternoon session. Apart from that, it was a pretty straight forward day working through our development parts.
Conditions were quite difficult today because it wasn’t completely wet or completely dry. But I think it was a positive day and I’m looking forward to tomorrow. We need to improve more in the wet but in the dry the car felt well balanced. There is still much we can improve.
