Tom McCullough, Senior Test Engineer
We completed more aero testing this morning and have collated some useful data. We then started our evaluations of the Pirelli tyres. We tested both the medium and soft compounds and have learnt a lot about their different characteristics. They performed well so, overall, we've had a very positive first day with Pirelli.

Rubens Barrichello
We've had a busy schedule today with plenty of work to do. This morning we evaluated aero set-up, before going for performance runs in the afternoon. This was our first session with the Pirelli tyres and I found it quite interesting. My initial impressions are positive and I look forward to working with them again tomorrow.

AT&T Williams will be back on track tomorrow, Saturday 20 November, with Rubens Barrichello completing the Pirelli tyre test.
