Giedo van der Garde: "For my final day of testing it's really good to put 126 laps on the board. We took full advantage of the weather today, running through the final tyre and setup evaluations this morning and then running a full race simulation after lunch.

We only had one minor issue with the car this morning, but apart from that it ran well all day and it was good to get a full race distance done, both for me and the whole team.

"Even with the amount of laps we got through I feel really good. I've worked hard all winter to prepare for the season and today was a good test for how I feel physically and mentally, so it's good to finish off the tests feeling prepared for the race season to start."
