    Rod Nelson, Chief Test & Support Engineer: It's been a very productive day. The morning was mostly spent undertaking aero investigations, and in the afternoon we covered some chassis and tyre work. It's really interesting to get another driver's point of view and look at the differences in driving style from someone so experienced. It was really useful feedback for us moving forward. We finished off the afternoon with some more aero runs, race starts and set-up. We really covered everything in the plan over the 126 laps that we completed. So it was a very good session.

    Gary Paffett: It's been a while since I've done a full test in a Formula One car! It's really good to be back in the car, really good. The cars this year with the increased downforce, and more grip in the tyres, are really nice to drive. We've had a really good day. We've done a lot of laps, which is really good, and we got all of our testing done. That's the purpose really, to get all the testing done, and then for me to go back and validate the simulator. So overall it was really nice to drive the car and I'm very happy with how the day went.
