Paul Russell, Test Engineer:
“Unfortunately in the morning when we focused on aero measurements and correlation didn’t start well. The incident in turn three after four laps caused damage to the left front of the car and delayed our progress. The team did a very good job in getting the car back on track before lunch time. In the afternoon Raffaele went out on track and continued with a shortened programme, focusing on set-up work.”

Raffaele Marciello:
“In the morning we started as scheduled, but were than stopped by an incident, which hurt our programme. The team did a perfect job to put the car back together in around just two hours. Once the car was ready the programme went well and we had a good, solid afternoon of testing. I am positive about what data and other information we were able to collect for future races.”
