Chassis programme
Franck Montagny conducted a successful shake-down of power steering developments, but limited dry running meant performance testing was impossible. He also conducted software development.

Tyre programme
The prevailing conditions provided the opportunity to validate the wet tyres which were taken to Melbourne.

Other Notes
The damp weather throughout the day meant it was impossible to conduct any dry tyre testing, and the team concluded running early having completed its work in the wet.

Christian Silk, Chief Test Engineer:

"We had a problem-free day. The conditions were difficult, and Franck coped very well, conducting some useful programmes and producing consistent, quick times in the R23."

Franck Montagny
Chassis: R23-05
54 laps, 217 km
