Barcelona Test 20-22 March / Day 1

Ryan Briscoe

"I would have liked to have done a few more laps on my first real F1 test. There were a few glitches with the hydraulics and electronics, but we were testing some new things today for the next couple of races, so we expected a few teething problems. Overall though I am quite happy. The car feels good to drive and it is getting better all the time."

Panasonic Toyota Racing's three-day Barcelona test continues tomorrow with Mika Salo at the helm of the TF102.
