LANDO NORRIS, #4
“I’m happy with the day. We did a lot of laps, a lot of short runs and almost a full race run. We gained a good understanding of the car, both alone on track and following other cars – a bit of a mix really, which is usual at testing.
“It was a decent way to end the pre-season for me, giving us a good understanding of the areas to work on as we prepare for Australia.”
JAMES KEY, Technical Director
“A full day today with Lando and a different approach compared to the other days of testing. We introduced and tested some further developments today, but beyond that we began to explore the performance of the car and complete some set-up work with Lando before the start of the season. That all worked as planned and gave us some interesting and important information. We look forward to doing the same with Carlos tomorrow.
“This afternoon we did some longer runs which gave us some more information on the car at race fuel levels, which was good practice for Lando on his last day before we hit Melbourne.”
