On one of the short versions of the Circuit Paul Ricard Robert Kubica today concentrated on setup work regarding the upcoming Monaco Grand Prix. The team tried different solutions to fine tune the car’s aerodynamic, suspension and engine electronics for the slow and bumpy track in the streets of Monte Carlo.
In the morning Kubica brought the F1-08 back to the pits unexpectedly when the car developed an oil leak. After an precautionary engine change he continued the test as scheduled. With Kubica completing 124 laps (446 km) the team made good progress in setting up the F1-08 for the next race.
