Team Talk - Wednesday in Spielberg

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

Phil Charles (Chief Race Engineer): “We’ve had a very productive day, completing a high number of laps, with Marco making no mistakes and impressing us all with his approach and feedback. There was a short time of adjustment as he got used to the difference in braking from the DTM car to a Formula 1 machine. He then settled into a rhythm, as we started off our programme with a series of long runs. After that, it was time to proceed with the items on our test agenda; aero, tyre and set-up work, with some performance runs in the middle of the day, mainly for the driver’s benefit.”

Marco Wittmann: “This has been an amazing experience for me. I was surprised at the power of the car; if I compare it to DTM, it’s got quite a lot more power! I enjoyed the whole day, which was trouble free, so I was able to do a lot of laps. I’m happy with my day, I hope the team is too. I would like to thank Red Bull, Scuderia Toro Rosso and BMW for giving me this great opportunity.”
