Williams will be back on track tomorrow, with Felipe Massa in the FW36 for the third day of the test.
Rod Nelson, Chief Test & Support Engineer: We ran a similar programme today as yesterday.
We then finished with some performance runs this evening looking at some new systems on the car.
It was nice to have a relatively trouble-free day with Felipe as he hasn't had the best of winter testing up to now, so it's good to see him with a smile on his face. We are now looking forward to concentrating on pushing the car for more performance over the final two days.
Felipe Massa: I think it was another important day for us. We are starting to understand the car a lot more. It was really my first full day driving, after only getting half a day last week, so I'm still looking forward to understanding more tomorrow and doing everything we can do to be as prepared as possible for the first race. I am happy with how we are working as a team and tomorrow will be another important day.
