Daniel Ricciardo Tuesday: “This was my first time back in the car since the second day in Jerez and we had a full programme of things to try. Because of some of the changes we chose to make to the car setup, this involved quite a bit of time in the garage, therefore this was not a day for a lot of laps. I’m glad I’m driving tomorrow, because I feel I need to get a better understanding of what we started today. We have some homework to do overnight, but we know which direction to go in.” Wednesday: “A very productive day, testing various suspension options, which was very interesting and has provided us with plenty of data to look at. Therefore it was not a day for the time sheets, but one during which we learned a lot. It’s been interesting evaluating the Pirelli tyres, which have different characteristics to those from last year, but we will need some higher temperatures before we get an accurate picture of how they perform. Now it’s down to Jean-Eric to carry on for the next couple of days, before I get my final two days of testing when we come back here in just over one week.”
