Williams new race driver Valtteri Bottas pleased with trouble free two day practice at Jerez. Teams’ last year reserve driver Bottas back on the track, first time since the opening free practice session for last year’s Brazilian GP.

Third day of testing Bottas set tenth fastest and successive completed 86 laps, the final day of testing Finn managed eighth fastest with 92 laps.

“It’s been a good four days of testing for us and I’ve really enjoyed the last two days in particular when I’ve been driving the car.” Valtteri Bottas said.

“We have achieved everything we planned this week without any issues, and I’ve really liked how the new technical team have been working.”

“We collected some valuable data regarding some parts for the new car and now I’m excited to go to Barcelona to drive the FW35 for the first time.

Mike Coughlan, Technical Director: We have had a very good four days in Jerez running the FW34. We have gone through a complete programme testing various parts that will be used on the FW35. This compliments our current philosophy of using rigs to pass off systems before running them on the car.”

“The drivers have enjoyed themselves running through tyre comparisons and set-up changes that you would be reluctant to do at a race meeting due to time constraints. Although these results have been a little compromised by the very aggressive nature of the track surface here, we have acquired some useful data to carry forward. We now look forward to the next test in Barcelona and the launch of the FW35.”
