Tiago Monteiro test summary

Tiago carried out tyre testing in the morning before switching to the M16 for some familiarisation and set-up work, unfortunately we lost a little track time in the afternoon with a couple of problems that we were able to correct during the session.

Tiago Monteiro:

"I went out in the new car this afternoon and although we didn't do many laps it was good to get a feel for what it is like. I am happy with what we achieved and look forward to getting more laps completed tomorrow."

Christijan Albers test summary

The morning in the M16 was spent working on set-up and further systems testing and comparison work. In the afternoon Christijan drove the interim car concentrating on aerodynamic testing and some engine work for Toyota.

Christijan Albers:

"I spent the first half of today in the new car and I am pleased that we are making good progress. I have now driven both cars and I am still positive about the changes that have been made over the winter. I am still looking forward to the start of the season and getting as much as possible out of the new car before then."
