Sam Michael, Technical Director: It has not been a productive day for us I'm afraid. After the installation lap we had a problem with a bleed screw for the rear wing hydraulic actuator. It is straightforward to correct, however during the day it caused a lot of downtime as we shuffled parts around to get the car out on the track. On the positive side, in the late afternoon we did complete all the aero testing that required the front tyre rake, so that will come off tonight.
AT&T Williams will be back on track tomorrow, Friday 11 February, with Pastor Maldonado continuing in the FW33 for the second day of the test.
