Tom McCullough, Senior Test Engineer
We've had a productive day with Pastor. He covered a lot of mileage, just under 450km, while helping us with our aero tests. Unfortunately, we had a reliability problem at the end of the day which prevented him from running the soft tyre, but overall it was a positive session during which time we've gathered plenty of data.

Today was another great experience. We had to do a lot of slower speed aero set-up work today so I couldn't really push it, and I didn't get a run of the soft tyre either, but I'm pleased with the work I've done. I'm getting lots of track time this week, which is improving my confidence in the car.

AT&T Williams will be back on track on Friday 19 November with Rubens Barrichello piloting the FW32.
