Both drivers spent the majority of the day working on assessments of the season four challenger, as it was the team first day to see how their car performed against the rest of the competition.
What the drivers said
“It was an intensive day,” said Buemi. “It’s not usual that we are testing with both cars so it was a good thing as we achieved a maximum of laps. I am satisfied with the performance of the car. I think we could still do better but overall, it was a strong day.”
“It was a strong day,” said Prost We worked mostly on long runs during the afternoon session. The performance of the car was satisfying this morning and we are going to work in that direction tomorrow. In the end, it is really a positive day.”
