Mark Gillan, Chief Operations Engineer: We had a disappointing start to this morning’s session with an electrical problem that necessitated stripping the car, thus incurring a large loss in track time. The mechanics worked hard to get the car back out on track in the early afternoon. We modified the run plan accordingly and successfully completed a number of aerodynamic and systems tests.
Pastor Maldonado: We lost some time this morning but we had a good afternoon. The track is amazing so it was good to get a few runs completed this afternoon. We gathered a lot of data and I feel positive heading into the next race.
The Williams F1 Team will be back on track in Barcelona for the Spanish Grand Prix, 11 – 13 May.
