Williams Barcelona test II - Day 3 report

Williams press release

Bruno Senna:


Today was a very good day. We completed some runs on lower fuel, which I hadn't done before, using all the different tyre compounds. I was then able to do a full race simulation this afternoon, to learn more about the car and tyres in a race situation.

We have a lot of valuable information to look at now, which will enable us to improve for next time. Unfortunately we had to cut our race simulation a bit short due to the rain, however we still met all our objectives for the day.

Mark Gillan, Chief Operations Engineer:


We had a productive day's testing today, with Bruno completing 111 laps without issue. We concentrated on aerodynamic testing this morning prior to moving onto a race simulation. At the end of the race simulation, it started to rain and we reverted from dry tyres on to intermediates.
