JARNO TRULLI: “We’re pretty happy with how the day went – completing 98 laps gave us a chance to work through a number of setup options and we collected a lot of useful data on the tyre degradation. They’re behaving pretty much how we expected them to and the changes we made to the car gave us the results we wanted so we’ll look through all the information we’ve gathered and see if we can take another step forward tomorrow.”

MIKE GASCOYNE, CHIEF TECHNICAL OFFICER: “Today was a very good day for us, much more productive than a couple of the days we have had in testing so far. It is good to complete 98 laps with no real problems on the car. We concentrated on long runs, looking at tyre degradation and setup options, and the pitcrew worked through a number of pitstop practices in advance of the first race so we ran through the entire plan and everyone is happy with the work that has been done today.”
