Team Talk - Wednesday in Spielberg


Motor Racing - Formula One Testing - Day 2 - Spielberg, Austria

Jolyon Palmer“It was a good day for me and we completed all of our programme. It’s always productive to get a good tally of laps on the board so anything over one hundred is a real bonus. It’s a bit sad as that’s my final day of testing in the car, but I’ve got a good schedule of FP1 sessions ahead of me, starting with my home Grand Prix at Silverstone next week.”

Alan Permane, Trackside Operations Director: “In contrast to yesterday, today was straightforward in terms of weather and run programme. In the morning we looked at mechanical set-up work, focussing on more time consuming changes than we’d evaluate over a Grand Prix weekend, then in the afternoon we also looked at further aerodynamic assessments. The E23 ran reliably and Jolyon did a great job as expected. We’ve been able to collate useful data for improving the pace of the E23 which means job done. We now head back to Enstone to prepare for our home Grand Prix at Silverstone.”
