Budapest Test Four – Day Two – Williams Martini Racing

Budapest Test Four – Day Two
Driver: Robert Kubica
Chassis / Engine: FW41-01 / Mercedes-AMG F1 M09 EQ Power+
Location: Hungaroring, 4.318 km
Weather: Warm and dry
Temperatures (min-max): Air 22-31ºC / Track 30-50ºC
Rob Smedley, Head of Performance Engineering: We have ended what has been a successful test. We came here to predominately concentrate on 2019 aero specification and we have carried out every single item on the test programme regarding 2019 that we set out to, and some more. The engineering team and mechanics couldn’t have worked any harder and have done a great job. We need to go away now and use all the data to help us with correlation for 2019 regulations. Additionally, we had a look at the remainder of the season, some set up, some tyre preparation work and we have some interesting directions from there. Robert set some good lap times considering the tyres we gave him and the time in the car. Overall, it’s a good way to go into the summer break for the team.
Robert Kubica, Reserve and Development Driver: It was a good day. We had a mixed programme with some data collection for next year and trying to understand our car better for 2018. We also ran a few runs with the current car specification to help with the rest of the season. We have a lot of data to go through and analyse but it was a good test to end on before the summer break.
