• Track learning for Pastor

Objectives P2
• Qualifying and race tyre evaluations
• Set-up work

Sam Michael,Technical Director

After a productive morning with both cars, we had some issues with the new exhaust system we're running on Rubens' FW33 in the second session. We'll now review the data to decide whether or not to race it. That aside, we covered good mileage on the Option tyre which has given us some solid data for the race. We will fit new engines in both cars for tomorrow.

Pastor Maldonado

I did lots of miles which is useful because this is my first time at this circuit

Pastor Maldonado

Today went well and we've learnt a lot. I did lots of miles which is useful because this is my first time at this circuit. The car felt good, especially on the long runs in P2. We don't know where the others are or what fuel they're running, but I think we're looking better here than we were in Malaysia.

Rubens Barrichello

We need to go through the data to see whether we will keep to this plan

Rubens Barrichello

We were testing new parts on my car in practice today. They seemed to lose a little bit of performance towards the end of the last session though which means we'll have to work hard to evaluate them properly. We need to go through the data to see whether we will keep to this plan or go back to the original one.
