“I think for the team, data-wise, we got what we wanted as today was about executing a specific run plan rather than setting purple sectors. We had a driveline issue this morning which cost us a few hours but the running that we did get was positive. There will be more feedback later in the week, but overall, at the moment, everyone’s satisfied.”

“I think it was a very productive day as we completed all the runs we had planned. We learned more about the updates we brought here for the weekend and how they were working – I’m sure we will be able to take a lot of the things we learned from the test to the next races. On my side, I’m understanding more how I want the car to be and where I want the setup for qualifying. All in all, we got a lot done today.”
