Barcelona day four : Pleased with progress after a full run
Final day of the Barcelona test, and the second day in the cockpit for Jenson.
Despite temperamental weather – it started to spit with rain from first running this morning, meaning Jenson only conducted a single run on slicks – the team completed a full programme and was pleased with progress.
The rain also allowed the team to run Pirelli’s Intermediate and Full Wet compounds – another very useful opportunity ahead of the unpredictable weather often encountered at the opening races.
The team remains in Barcelona for a second session next week (Feb 28-Mar 3). Driving duties will be split Sergio-Jenson-Sergio-Jenson, and the car will run in Melbourne-spec for the first time.
