Renault’s engine chief Rob White said following the opening day of testing: “I honestly expected there to be more laps on the board right now, but without real up close knowledge of what has been going on in the garage I don’t know what has been happening,”.

“It is kind of a no brainer, but the pace has to ramp up substantially over the coming days and week.” he added.
