Pastor Maldonado: "The FW35 feels like we have made a real step forward."
Mike Coughlan, Technical Director: "It was a very good day for us, with Pastor completing 86 laps, the second-highest of any team today. Pastor was very comfortable in the car which was shown by his early lap times.
Pastor Maldonado: "It was a good day today. I felt happy after the first run this morning and we then completed a busy day of testing. It was great to get out on track in the new car.
The FW35 feels like we have made a real step forward. There is still a lot to discover with the new car, but this is a good starting point for us for the season."
