Day 4 Barcelona Test

Mixed weather cost a massive amount of meaningful work – Force India

Published

on

(Force India Press Release) It was a damp day in Barcelona as Sahara Force India wrapped up its test with Jules Bianchi back in the VJM06 for another day of work during the week.

Jules Bianchi: “It was good to be back working with the team today and to feel the car in all conditions when the track was both dry and wet. It’s more useful experience for me.”

“We did most of our dry running this morning and then did our aero work this afternoon when the track was wet. We didn’t manage to do the long runs we planned because it was so wet, but we still managed to look at a lot of things.”

Jakob Andreasen, Chief Race Engineer – “The mixed weather conditions today made it difficult to complete a massive amount of meaningful work, but it was useful to run Jules on the dry, intermediate and wet tyres at various points during the day.”

“But with the track condition constantly changing, it was difficult to make comparisons from one run to the next. Also, the low track temperatures of about six degrees are not representative of the conditions we expect at the upcoming races. Even so, Jules did a good job for us once again and pushed on despite the damp conditions. Looking at the test as a whole, we leave here reasonably happy with our reliability and performance, and we know what we have do to next week to be ready for Melbourne.”

Day Four Numbers:
Chassis: VJM06-03
Laps: 61 laps
