Report: Barcelona Test Three Day Two
|Date||Wednesday May 13 2015|
|Location||Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya (4.655km)|
An extremely productive final day in Barcelona.
Jenson took over driving duties today, and successfully ran through all the items on today’s run-plan. These included running measuring rakes on the car in the morning to capture aerodynamic data, and a lengthy series of mechanical and aerodynamic balance changes, with modifications made to the front wing and suspension in order to provide our engineers with detailed data about MP4-30.
The team also carried out investigative work ahead of Monaco (low-speed set-up work) and Canada (low-downforce rear wing), which equips us with some useful information ahead of these two extreme races.
Furthermore, Jenson also reported that the set-up work undertaken today had gone a long way to curing the rear-end handling imbalance that afflicted him in Sunday’s race.
