July 23, 2011

Formula 1

Objectives P1
• Evaluation of new aero parts including new front and rear wings
• Dry set-up work

Objectives P2
• Comparison work of new aero parts on both cars
• Tyre testing on long runs and set-up work

Sam Michael, Technical Director
Today we spent the morning evaluating a new rear wing, front wing and suspension design. We still have some work to do on all of those items, so we haven’t decided which options to race here in the Grand Prix. With the high altitude here, we have to set-up the car differently and today was about optimising the set-up around that.

Rubens Barrichello
We weren’t as competitive as we should have been today but if the weather changes it could be interesting. I really like the track so I’m looking forward to a better weekend.

Pastor Maldonado
We had a few problems today and I didn’t have a great feeling in the car. I think it will be a tough weekend for us but we are working hard and hoping to improve for tomorrow.
