"Our reliability has been good and we’ve made steady progress through the job list," said Chief Race Engineer Jakob Andreasen.

Sahara Force India wrapped up its winter testing programme in Barcelona today with Paul Di Resta completing 112 laps in the VJM06.

Paul Di Resta: “My last day in the car before Melbourne and we made the most of it. The race distance this afternoon was straightforward and there were no red flags while we were running.

The weather was much warmer today and that gives us useful tyre information, which we can compare with the data we have from Adrian’s work yesterday in similar conditions.”

Jakob Andreasen, Chief Race Engineer: “Winter testing comes to an end with another full day and a race simulation for Paul. Combined with the race distance for Adrian yesterday, we’ve achieved our mileage target and have a much better understanding of the performance windows of the tyres.

Two weeks today we will be racing in Melbourne and we are feeling positive and pretty well prepared. Our reliability has been good and we’ve made steady progress through the job list.

As always at this time of year, it’s a case of all hands on deck, both at the track and back at base, but everybody has played their part to ensure a smooth winter programme over the last few weeks.”
