Williams press release

Pastor Maldonado:


It has been a positive test for the team. We've had no problems with the car, getting in some good mileage across all four days. We now have a great deal of data to analyse so we will keep pushing to improve our car for the next test.

I am looking forward to coming back next week for the final test, and getting back to racing very soon.

Mark Gillan, Chief Operations Engineer:


We've had a really productive day's testing to end an excellent couple of weeks. Today Pastor went through a competitive race simulation and both the car and he performed very well, ending the day with some long run comparisons.

We have gathered a prodigious amount of data over more than 3500kms of testing and we will now regroup back at the factory to understand how to further improve the set-up and development direction ahead of the next Barcelona test.

The Williams F1 Team will be back on track to continue pre-season testing at the Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona from 1 – 4 March.
