Team talk: Day three at the second test


Motor Racing - Formula One Testing - Test Two - Day 3 - Barcelona, Spain

Romain Grosjean (12th, 1:27.196, 78 laps)
“Not an easy day, not an easy week for us, so far. The first week of testing went very well. The second has been a bit tricky. We’ve had some challenges with the brake-by-wire system on the car, which has made things a bit complicated. However, we’re working on it. At the end of the day, I had an off on turn nine. So it wasn’t the best finish, but I think now we know where to look to get the car back to where it should be. Hopefully, tomorrow is a much better day.”

Guenther Steiner, team principal
“It’s been a challenging day. However, we managed to get some running in, so that was a positive. We had some issues with the brake-by-wire system while trying to develop it. We’re still working on it and, therefore, it caused Romain to have a few offs, but this is what testing is about. We’re here to learn and, hopefully, we’ll be back out tomorrow to get some more laps in and understand the car better.”
