F1 2019 Bahrain In-Season Test – Day 2
 
 

A much better day in the desert for all ten teams involved in the second and final day of this in-season test at the Sakhir circuit. From a Honda point of view, everything went well and plenty of laps from our drivers means that we made up for the time lost yesterday to rain.

 


Much of the media attention these past two days has focussed on Mick (son of Michael) Schumacher, driving the Ferrari yesterday and the Alfa Romeo today. However, from a Honda perspective, it was interesting to see how Dan Ticktum got on in the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing car. The young Englishman and Macau GP winner has a season in Japan’s Super Formula ahead of him, racing for the Team Mugen.


This was the same route that Pierre Gasly took to get to Formula 1. Ticktum did well on his debut, completing 135 laps. Alex Albon was still in the cockpit of the Scuderia Toro Rosso and was pleased to get more laps (143) under his belt, given that he’s this season’s rookie with the least time spent prior to 2019 in an F1 car. As a sidebar to the main test, Daniil Kvyat continued to drive a second Toro Rosso for the Pirelli 2020 blind tyre test having completed 111 laps. Next stop Shanghai International Circuit and the Chinese GP, the one thousandth race since the F1 series began in 1950.
 

 
 
Masamitsu Motohashi
Honda F1 Deputy Technical Director



“The second and final day of the first in-season test at Bahrain’s Sakhir circuit, has been held in more usual dry conditions after the unexpected and persistent rain wiped out a lot of yesterday’s track time at this desert venue. Once again today, we supplied PUs for three cars, one each for Aston Martin Red Bull Racing and Scuderia Toro Rosso and a further one for Toro Rosso who are also taking part in the Pirelli tyre test.


A generally trouble-free day meant we were able to make up for the time lost yesterday, with all our cars going past the 100 lap mark by the end. Once again, our PU programme was aimed at optimising settings for the coming races and the results were satisfactory. The work we have done over these two days and the feedback we have received will be put to immediate use as we prepare for next week’s third round of the Championship in China.”
 
 


Alexander Albon
Red Bull Toro Rosso Honda
Best time: 1'30.037
Laps: 143   



“We had a very productive second test day here in Bahrain after missing out on a few hours due to rain yesterday. We ran some more aero tests and learned more about the behaviour of the tyres. We found some interesting things during the test and there were definitely some positives to take away. I’m sure we’ll be applying the results to what we learned in Bahrain later on in the season. Everything ran smoothly today, I got more mileage under my belt and I’m feeling better with the car - it was a very busy programme, but it felt good to end the day completing the most laps overall.”
 
 


Daniel Ticktum
Aston Martin Red Bull Racing
 Best time: 1'30.856
Laps: 135   


“I learned a lot today and my first time in a modern F1 car was a big step. I think the biggest thing was learning the procedures. There’s a lot of settings to use, a lot to do on the steering wheel, even on a push lap, which isn’t the case in the junior formula. That was quite a lot to take in at the start – but I got used to it pretty quickly. It was also interesting having a garage full of people.


It brings home that there’s a massive responsibility on the driver to deliver not just for himself and his engineers but for a whole Team. I think we gathered some really good data today, which is obviously the most important part of the test. We did some long runs and I had a good opportunity to gain an understanding of how these tyres work. All in all, I’d say the test went well today.”
