James Key (Technical Director):
“After not having been at the wheel in Valencia for a long time, today was Kamui’s first day of proper testing with the C30 and the latest Pirelli tyres. We have been running on used tyres and did some general set up work, but actually not a huge amount of performance work. In the morning we did general mechanical work and set up changes, checking directions we found when Sergio was driving. In the afternoon we also tested some new development items and concentrated on longer runs, which in the end were cut short due to an engine problem. We are also looking forward to a full test programme for tomorrow.”
What comes next:
Kamui Kobayashi will continue to drive tomorrow, Sunday, which will the fourth and final day of this year’s pre-season test in Jerez.
