Mark Gillan, Chief Operations Engineer: We successfully completed the majority of our planned test programme today with Pastor covering 97 laps. We performed a mixture of mechanical and aerodynamic set-up tests, in addition to continued engine and KERS systems checks. Bruno will have his first outing in the car tomorrow as we switch driver for the final two days of the test.
Pastor Maldonado: We ran through our test programme and covered everything we needed to today. We did some long runs this afternoon and the car is looking good. We will now spend some time analysing all of the data we have gathered. It’s good to put more mileage on the FW34 and we now aim to continue that throughout the next two days.
The Williams F1 Team will be back on track tomorrow, Thursday 9 February, with Bruno Senna driving the FW34 for the third day of the test.
