Williams already completed anentire race simulation in the morning, with further development testing later that day. Bruno Senna ran 124 laps today and is together with the team already looking forward to the next test at Circuit de Catalunya.
Mark Gillan, Chief Operations Engineer: We had a very productive day, with Bruno successfully completing a full race simulation this morning and performance development testing during the afternoon. On the whole this has been a good first test for the FW34 and we have learnt a great deal about the new car. I'd like to thank the whole team for their massive effort this week.
Bruno Senna: It’s been another productive day with us testing a number of different set-up directions and finding out a lot more about the car. The car has continued to show good reliability as we completed 124 laps today, which is very satisfying. I’m happy to have started my first two days in the car for Williams on a very good note.
The Williams F1 Team will be back on track to continue pre-season testing at the Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona from 21 – 24 February.
