2019 Barcelona F1 Test 2 – Day 2
Wednesday, February 27th, 2019

 


Today was the sixth day of pre-season testing and there was more of a buzz in the air in the Barcelona paddock as the pace hots up with just two days of testing left prior to the cars going out on track for the first free practice session in Melbourne in  just 16 days time.
 


Within the Honda team, our work continues in terms of acquiring data and ensuring that everything goes smoothly on the PU front, so that our two teams can get on with their preparations, which at this stage involves trying different car set-ups, continuing to understand the Pirelli tyres and getting the drivers comfortable with their cars. Today we also see more pit-stop practices, because the operational side of a race weekend is as important as the performance aspect.



Both Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda and Aston Martin Red Bull Racing again completed a respectable mileage, with Daniil Kvyat doing 101 and Max Verstappen completing 128 laps. Some time was lost through red flags, because unlike a Grand Prix weekend, there are always fewer track marshals and vehicles to work with and, if a race car stops on track, it is always brought back to the team garage, whereas during a race weekend, it is left parked until the end of the session.
 
 


 
Toyoharu Tanabe
Technical Director, Honda F1


“This was the trickiest day of the six days of testing so far because, for various reasons, we did not get quite as much track time as we would have liked. Nevertheless, both our teams completed more than 100 laps and it was another day without major issues on PU side. We will now use the remaining two days of pre-season testing to complete our planned programme prior to the first race.”

Best time: 1:18.682
Laps: 101   



“I would say we had a decent day of running, we ran some useful test items and got some good laps on the board. Of course, you always want to do a few more laps but we had a couple of small issues here and there, it wasn’t anything major, although the time adds up. In the end, it was a productive day and that’s the most important thing, we got to test many useful items so now we’ll focus on the next day of testing.



You can’t look too much into the timesheets as everyone is on a different programme of testing but I’m feeling quite comfortable with the car. We got through almost everything we wanted to test today and we have a lot of useful data that I’ll go through together with my engineers. I have one more day left in the car and we will make the most out of it before heading to Melbourne.”
 



Jody Egginton
Scuderia Toro Rosso Deputy
Technical Director




“Dany took over driving duties today for the second day of test and he stepped through the standard block of aero tests early on, without any fuss or delay. As the temperature increased, we moved the setup forwards as planned and also ticked off a number of background test items.



In addition to the red flag, we unfortunately lost some track time later in the morning due to a couple of small issues which we now need to address for tomorrow. Having said this, we have increased our understanding of the car’s setup today and we are looking forward to applying this to the final two days of winter testing.”

Best time: 1:18.395
Laps: 128   




“Not a perfect day, but still a good one. There are always things you want to check, instead of driving until something breaks. We did a routine check this afternoon and then got back out again at the end of the session. But even with the delay we had, we still managed to do over 120 laps, so I think it was still a very positive day. The more laps, the better and today we did a lot, so overall I’m happy.”
 



Guillaume Rocquelin
Red Bull Racing
Head of Race Engineering



“We had another good morning, following the same plan as yesterday, when we got through a lot of shorter runs and set-up changes. In the afternoon, we went into a scheduled race simulation. We managed two-thirds of that but after Max had a brief off, we pitted for some routine checks with the gearbox. It’s not the easiest element of the car to get deep into, so it kept us in the garage for a while.



When we did get back out, the change in track conditions meant we weren’t going to learn that much so we focused on pit stop practice, which we had planned as part of the race work. Tomorrow, we’ll pursue the same plan, which is all about understanding the car and gaining valuable information.”
