Comments from the MF1 team after Silverstone testing on April 27th

Christijan Albers:

"I was a little frustrated with all the track time I lost today due to all the red flags and a mechanical issue we had, but overall I feel quite positive about the tyre test. I think we've found quite a good tyre for this circuit and we made some progress with other areas of the car. Now, I'm looking forward to the upcoming race at Nurburgring, a track I know quite well from my DTM and F3 days."

Adrian Sutil:

"It was good to be back in the car again, but I just wish it could have been for more time. No matter, it's always good to work with the team, and I can't wait to do my first Friday drive at the next race."

Dominic Harlow, Chief Race and Test Engineer:

"The final day of the test here was interrupted by quite a few red flags, making it difficult to get into a meaningful testing rhythm until later in the day."

"We ran a brief 50km shakedown for Adrian Sutil in preparation for his Friday driving duties in Nurburgring, and Christijan took over the remaining driving duties working on tyre selection and some setup testing. Unfortunately, his afternoon was curtailed by a transmission problem and we lost a bit of track time as a result."

"But all in all, the three days have been useful and the April showers have stayed away. We are continuing to understand and improve our car and it was especially useful this week to give many of our engineers from the factory the opportunity to see the car in operation and get involved first hand in making improvements at the track."
