CARLOS SAINZ, #55
“Today has been a positive day of testing for us as we managed to complete the whole programme planned for my morning session in the car. We went through some set-up items that we had doubts about after the weekend, and found some interesting results to explain why we weren’t completely happy with our qualifying and race performance.
"We also validated some new aero parts that we brought here this weekend. We’ve got the data we need to take back home. That will help us understand what we did well this weekend and what we need to work on for Monaco. Overall, I’m happy with the work done.”
LANDO NORRIS, #4
“Today was a decent day. We got through everything we wanted to do today which was positive. We also went through a few things to confirm the results from the weekend before starting some preparation ahead of Monaco. We didn’t do a huge number of laps this afternoon but from what we did, we got everything we needed and managed to learn a lot.”
ANDREA STELLA, Performance Director
“Today has been a useful day of testing because we could complete our programme, which was split between Carlos and Lando, without any issues or delays. The test coming after the race gives us the opportunity to make some direct comparisons with the race weekend.
“In particular, we tested a few things on car set-up that helped us understand the behaviour of the car in qualifying and in the race, and we also acquired some useful information for the coming races.
“We conducted some aerodynamic tests to learn more about the aero package that we took to the Spanish Grand Prix, in addition to some further aerodynamic developments that we are considering for future introduction. We also gathered some information which will be very useful for the development of the car.”
