Canada – Williams Friday Reports

Published

on

Jun.10 (Williams) Drivers and team reflect on the first day of practice for the Canadian Grand Prix at Circuit Gilles de Villeneuve on the Ile de Notre dame in Montreal.

Objectives P1
• Evaluation of new front and rear wings and a new diffuser
• Testing of Pirelli’s medium tyre compound
Objectives P2
• Further evaluations of new aero parts
• Tyre testing in preparation for qualifying and race day
• Set-up work

Sam Michael, Technical Director
Even with the red flags, we had a really productive day with both cars. We evaluated front wings, rear wings and diffusers throughout both sessions and happily all of the new parts are working well. The tyres improved a lot over the course of the day and that will continue into the race weekend. We will now turn our attention to qualifying.

Rubens Barrichello
The team worked well today. We had a lot of things to get through so we had to split our test programme between mine and Pastor’s car. Everyone did a good job to get it all done and we now have a lot of information to work through which I’m happy about. We seem to be in better shape here and that might give us a couple of positions over the weekend. We will still have to work hard to make it into Q3 tomorrow, but I think it is achievable.

Pastor Maldonado
That was a positive day, although we did have some problems on my car in the morning which meant we didn’t get to run the prime tyres, only the medium. We had a better afternoon and our pace appears strong, even over long runs. All seems to be working ok so let’s see what we can do in qualifying.
