Day 1 Barcelona Test

Paul Di Resta: We got a good feel for them once again

Published

on

Sahara Force India began its Barcelona test session today as Paul Di Resta spent the day in the VJM06 and clocked up 82 laps of the Circuit de Catalunya.

Paul Di Resta: “The first day of running was mainly about tyre work and making some comparisons with Jerez. I was running on the hard and the mediums and we got a good feel for them once again.”

“We also did an aero programme this morning, which is part of the correlation work as we evaluate some of the new parts going on the car. The plan is for more of the same tomorrow.”

Jakob Andreasen, Chief Race Engineer

“It has been a solid first day of work in Barcelona with Paul. We’ve put into effect what we learned in Jerez and made some useful comparisons, especially in terms of tyre evaluation. After the aero programme this morning, we did some shorts runs with new aero components and then moved to longer runs later on.”

“The track conditions were not at their best this morning, but from midday onwards things started to improve and the cloud cover kept the track temperatures relatively low. With Melbourne less than a month away the team is gelling nicely and the new personnel and structures we have put in place are working well.”
