    Sergey Sirotkin:
    "It was quite a good, and quite a busy day, and it was great to be out in action as I've been waiting for this day a very long time! I enjoyed every second of being in the car, even if the programme was not the most exciting for the driver. The car is amazingly quick and I noticed the difference in grip immediately from the previous generation. That said, you soon get used to the extra speed. I can't wait to get to Sochi."

    Alan Permane, Sporting Director:
    "Today went completely to plan. Sergey impressed us as he was quickly up to speed and didn't put a foot wrong despite having not driven since the end of last year. We completed a full programme including evaluations of suspension, set-ups, aero, tyre and wind tunnel correlation work. As with yesterday, we weren't chasing particular headline times for the day, rather building a basis for further pace at the forthcoming races and we're confident that the work done here will be highly beneficial in that aim."
