Daniel Ricciardo and Red Bull report on their first day of testing at the Bahrain circuit.
BAHRAIN TEST – DAY ONE
Driver: Daniel Ricciardo
Best time: 1:38.326
Circuit length: 5.412km
Fastest Lap: N. Rosberg (1:35.897)
After delivering a superb drive to fourth place in Sunday’s Bahrain Grand Prix, Daniel Ricciardo was back behind the wheel of the Infiniti Red Bull Racing RB10 today as the first in-season test of the year got underway at the Bahrain International Circuit.
Daniel put in 91 laps of the Sakhir circuit on his way to a best time of 1:38.326 and afterwards said he was pleased with the progress made today.
Race Engineering Co-ordinator Andy Damerum added: “An excellent day today. We were a little delayed in getting out this morning but that was simply down to the amount of instrumentation involved. Once Daniel was out though we worked through a very packed schedule of items and over his 91 laps we managed to tick off almost all of those things. There are many little standard test things which we couldn’t get done in pre-season and which the nature of race weekends don’t allow for, so today has been very valuable in terms of working through those items. So, all in all, a busy first day and it will be more of the same tomorrow when once again Daniel will be at the wheel.”
