Rod Nelson, Chief Test & Support Engineer: We have had an excellent day today to complete the two-day test. We completed our scheduled programme including a number of additional items on top, which is really positive. We have a lot of data to go through now and have a clear direction in terms of development. It was great to have Susie back in the car yesterday, and Valtteri has built on that progress today.
Valtteri Bottas: It was a good day overall and luckily the weather was kinder to us. The work Susie did yesterday was really important as we continued our programme. We focused on aero and mechanical work, and now have a clearer idea where we need to push in terms of development. I now have to switch my focus to Silverstone, which I am really looking forward to.
