The Williams F1 team continued to test changes on their 2012 FW34 car with Pastor Maldonado. Tomorrow Valtteri Bottas will finish the final two days at Jerez preseason testing.
Pastor Maldonado: We did some good running this afternoon going through our planned tests but there is still a lot to do to understand the tyres even better. We have a lot of data to look through from today and there is a good atmosphere in the team. I know Andrew, my new Race Engineer, well as he’s been my Performance Engineer for the last two years, so it feels very natural to continue working together.
The Williams F1 Team will be back on track tomorrow, Thursday 7 February, with Valtteri Bottas getting behind the wheel of the FW34 for the third day of the test.
