The last day of the two day test session at the Sakhir circuit, saw Jean-Eric Vergne at the wheel of the STR9. While yesterday, Daniil Kvyat spent the whole session doing long runs, this time the programme involved shorter runs, while evaluating mechanical changes on the car. The job sheet focussed mainly on chassis work with the team making a major change to the suspension over the lunch-break. Apart from that, Jev ran a tyre evaluation programme, using Medium, Soft and Supersoft tyres. Overall, it was a useful two days, with the team making progress in its understanding of the STR9 and all the new elements on the car.

Jean-Eric Vergne: “It was not a completely trouble free day, but that’s what testing is about. That aside, we got some serious work done today that can inform us on the way to move forward for the next part of the season. From that point of view, today was very productive and important. We got some good answers about which direction to work in. Another plus point is that I feel the car itself has a good performance potential and will work really well, once we have everything under control, which is very encouraging.”
