Sam Michael, Technical Director: It has not been a productive day for us after we had a KERS fault first thing this morning. We removed the system and were able to get out for some limited running late afternoon.
Pastor Maldonado: It hasn’t been a good day as we didn’t complete our planned programme. We unfortunately didn’t get enough running in to make too much progress.
AT&T Williams will be back on track tomorrow, Thursday 10 February, with Rubens Barrichello driving the FW33 for the second day of the test.
