Aston Martin Red Bull Racing F1 Barcelona test 2, day 2 with both drivers on the track

27.02.2020: BARCELONA TEST 2 DAY 2 Driver: Max Verstappen and Alex Albon Car: RB16 Laps: Max 31, Alex 61 Best time: Max 1:17.738, Alex 1:18.393 Circuit length: 4.655km

BARCELONA TEST 2 – DAY 2



Driver:               Max Verstappen and Alex Albon
Car:                  RB16
Laps:                 Max 31, Alex 61
Best time:         Max 1:17.738, Alex 1:18.393
Circuit length:  4.655km
 


 
A damp start and strong winds complicated running for the penultimate day of the second Barcelona pre-season test, but despite tricky conditions Max and Alex completed another 92 laps as the Team focused on short runs and data collection. Max was at the wheel of the RB16 in the morning and posted a total of 31 laps before handing the car over to Alex in the afternoon.
 


Looking back on his morning session, Max said: “It was a bit of a shame with the weather, so we couldn’t really run as much as we wanted, but overall it was positive. We spent time driving with the aero rakes, gathering all the data we could and everything went well. Every day we are improving, learning more, and that’s exactly what you want from testing. It was never the target to run as many laps as last week.



I think we have done our long runs and now it’s about checking parts and trying different things. It all takes time and the end result is fewer laps, but I think we tried everything we wanted to today. Regarding the spin I had this morning, I had a look back at the footage and I just clipped a little damp patch, which I didn’t see, but yeah, I think I just tried to take a little too much road on the entry!”
 


Despite the strong winds in the afternoon, Alex felt the Team had managed to learn a lot during the session. “This afternoon was a little bit disrupted, mostly because of the wind, which was tricky, and it was hard to get a good read on balance, but otherwise it wasn’t too bad today. Everything’s going well, but of course we need to look at the data as it was not so easy to do direct comparisons today.



I think tomorrow the weather should be a lot better. There’s still work to do and that’s what tomorrow is about – fine-tuning and chipping away at it. We have done a lot of running and I think the positive thing is that we know the direction we’re happy with. We have got a good base heading into the start of the season.”
 



Head of Race Engineering, Guillaume Rocquelin, added:
“Today we had pretty tricky conditions on track because it was wet, cold and slippery in the morning and windy in the afternoon. I think it would have been easy to make mistakes and set ourselves back, either by damaging the car or by trying things we don’t understand because of the wind. So, we were quite cautious today and I think this was reflected in the amount of laps we completed.


 We wanted to make sure whatever we did was sensible, both in terms of not doing anything stupid so close to Melbourne, but also, if you’re testing you want to make sure you know what’s happening. So, we did short runs and changes that were suited to the conditions to make sure we got the most from the day. Tomorrow will be more or less a driver day for Max and Alex to get up to speed and comfortable so they know what to expect in Melbourne.”
