Glock: I’m looking forward to driving the new car now

Published

on

(Official test Report) Timo was in the hot seat at the Circuit de Catalunya today to begin his on-track preparations for the 2012 season.

Taking over the 2011 MVR-02 from Charles Pic for the day, he ran through a detailed programme of tyre evaluation work, putting the full spectrum of Pirelli compounds through their paces over short and long runs.

The car’s excellent reliability was underlined for a third consecutive day as Timo completed 108 laps in total to end the day 9th out of the 10 runners, maximising his one-day programme here this week.

Timo Glock: “It’s good to be back on track again after the long winter break and to start our preparations for the new season. Although we are still using the old car it has been really useful to work through the tyre evaluation programme and have the team working together again trackside. I’m looking forward to driving the new car now.”

John Booth, Team Principal: “It’s great to see Timo back in the car and in such fine form. It is clear he has been working very hard over the extended winter break and I don’t think I’ve seen him quite as prepared as this. We’ve achieved some good results today evaluating all the specifications of tyres, which will give us good background information going into the season. Timo also completed some tyre-specific set-up work which will feed into the new car programme. Overall another rewarding day of testing.”
