Barcelona Test #2 2019 – Day Two
Paddy Lowe, Chief Technical Officer: It was another day of perfect winter testing weather and we had an ambitious programme planned with Robert in the car. We had a trouble-free day and got through 130 laps to complete the entire programme for the day. We made some progress following analysis of the car overnight, especially on the long runs, but there is a lot more to find. We have good data to analyse from today’s runs and so that will help give us further direction for another important day tomorrow.
Robert Kubica: We had a good day from a gathering data point of view. Time is running out and from a driver point of view we haven’t done much work on the car so there is still a lot of things to discover and not much time before the first race. We are not in the position we would like to be from an engineering point of view, but I hope in the next few days we can start playing with the car and see how it reacts. We have to keep working and keep improving to put maximum effort in, and I hope we have a smooth start to the season now.
