“It's been a very difficult test” - Team Principal Christian Horner.
Infiniti Red Bull Racing ended its time in Jerez early today, a mechanical issue on the RB10 leading the team to pull out of the afternoon session and instead focus its attention on the next test in Bahrain.
Commenting on this morning’s running, Race Engineering Co-ordinator Andy Damerum said: “We did seven laps and every time Daniel went out we made improvements to the control of the engine. We were also making fixes to the issues that have arisen from our side and we have made progress there. However, we then discovered a mechanical issue with the car and after investigation it became clear we would not be able to fix this in time to run in the afternoon, so the decision was taken to retire early, take the data we have amassed and work towards the next test in Bahrain. Two weeks is a long time in Formula One and we and I’m sure Renault will work flat out now to solve the problems we’ve been having.”
