Comments from the Williams team after the four day test at Vallelunga

Mike Condliffe, Test Team Manager, WilliamsF1:

"We had a very busy final day here at Vallelunga with plenty to cover on the test programme. Today Narain was testing some aero modifications, brake materials and revised brake cooling options, while Mark concentrated on car set-up work again, before moving on to another set of tyre tests."

Simon Corbyn, Head of F1 Race Engineering, Cosworth:

"Vallelunga was a key track test for Cosworth. Updated CA2006 engine components, an engine duty cycle increase and the latest engine control system developments were all run successfully and will be available for race introduction at Monaco."

Narain Karthikeyan:

"I completed nearly 1,000kms of testing this week in Vallelunga. We were fortunate enough to have good weather all week which helped our progress greatly. During the two days that I was in the FW28 I worked on various items in the schedule in preparation for the Monaco Grand Prix next weekend, including tyre compound evaluations with our tyre partner, Bridgestone."

"We also ran some specific tests on the aerodynamics which will be an important consideration in Monte Carlo which is a high downforce circuit. The test was very useful for me as it's given me more experience of the car, but I also hope I've assisted Williams with their current development programme."
