 IN-SEASON TEST – BARCELONA, MAY 15-16
Barcelona, May 16



Mario Isola, Head of Car Racing
– “The first in-season test of the year provided a valuable opportunity for teams to try out tyres, car evolutions, and drivers in a back-to-back context on the same circuit that the Spanish Grand Prix had just taken place on, in broadly similar conditions. This provided the chance to make some interesting direct comparisons.



 An in-depth comparison was also made between the shallower tread specification tyre used in the Spanish Grand Prix with the ‘standard’ tyre, underlining our view that the choice for the race was the correct one. We now have plenty of useful data to analyse for the future.



At the same time, we also continued our 2019 tyre development programme during the test, together with McLaren and Force India on both days. This allowed us to make progress in several areas as we prepare the product for next year, with two full days of running.



There was a high level of reliability, with practically no red flags, which meant that the teams all managed to collect plenty of data in representative conditions – unlike our previous trip to Barcelona for testing, where we even saw some snow...



The fastest time in this test was set by Valtteri Bottas on the supersoft, but the hypersoft was also tested: which will make its competition debut shortly at the Monaco Grand Prix”.
