The OrangeArrows team was pleased to complete its test programme today at Silverstone today.

Graham Taylor, Chief Engineer, spoke after the session...
"It was good to complete the test's full schedule today and although we had some down-time late this morning due to a gearbox problem, we were able to fix that and get some really valuable data for Barcelona next weekend. We mainly focused on traction control and launch control today which is instantly beneficial to us."

"Although we didn't complete as many laps as yesterday, the signs were encouraging. We were running the car on race fuel loads, so the times weren't as quick as earlier in the test, but after the downpour at lunch, we were very quick in the wet. Even when the track began to dry later in the afternoon, we still had good pace, setting similar times to the Saubers and the Jordans."

"I think it's fair to say we now go to Barcelona benefiting from some good testing mileage and hopefully we'll have ironed out some of the glitches that we had at the start of the season."
