Tomorrow, Jean-Eric Vergne will have his first encounter with the new car, as he takes over from his team-mate for the final two days of this test.
Daniel Ricciardo: “A few more laps today and a bit of a clearer picture of what the STR8 is like. We completed our programme, with short runs in the morning and longer ones in the afternoon. We also tried the Medium Pirelli, having only used the Hard yesterday, so at least for this circuit, we have established a good compare of the two compounds. We ran through several other test items and I think we can be satisfied with the day’s work that has produced some useful information.”
