“We have done some modifications and now it’s changed,” chief race engineer Xevi Pujolar said.

“No, we just changed it and that’s it.” He added reaction about the FIA decision.

But, Pujolar said the general development of the car had been positive since its first test last week and that the team is confident it has made a big step forwards on the 2012 car it tested at Jerez.

“Last week we had a good test for us but it’s difficult to know what everybody is doing,” he said.

“But if we compare to the previous week in Jerez when we were there with last year’s car getting a reference with the tyres, we now just compare the cars and we’re happy we’ve done a step forward. Also we did a lot of mileage last week so we know its reliable and now we need to see what everybody else has done in Melbourne.”
