    Daniil Kvyat (Car 26):
    "A very productive test for both myself and the team – considering it was only half a day, we managed to do plenty of laps, so we can be happy. It's all been very positive and the car is reliable. After a very long three weeks, I have to say thank you to all the mechanics for their great effort today – they are tired and still did an impeccable job. It was useful to be able to try a few things that are sometimes a bit risky to try in Free Practice sessions during a race weekend, so this was the time to do this. We now have a lot of data to go through and we will use this in order to get ready for my home race in Russia and the rest of the upcoming races."

    Carlos Sainz (Car 55):
    "I think we can be very happy with how this test went, both yesterday with Sean and today with Daniil and myself – to have two clean days and be able to test many parts was just what we needed. I'd like to thank the team and Renault, as it's been very useful. Overall, I end a positive day with very good feelings and lots of things learned. I now look forward to the next race weekend in Russia!"

    Jody Egginton (Head of Vehicle Performance):
    "Following a productive day yesterday with Sean, Daniil and Carlos took over driving duties today. The plan was to continue to evaluate the range of new mechanical updates we had available for this test, together with some tyre based tests. Daniil's day started well, with some aero dedicated runs, followed by normal baseline setting runs. After this we moved on to some more specific tests, evaluating some mechanical set-up items the results of which were positive. This means we can consider these parts for a race introduction. Carlos took over driving duties for the afternoon, running some further aero-dedicated tests and then moving on to evaluate mechanical test items as well as conducting a small tyre test program. All of this happened as planned and some good set-up directions were identified, combined with a good amount of kilometres put on these new parts. In summary, as a team, we can be happy with the execution of the test program here in Bahrain. Some positive results have been obtained and this should provide further set-up options for the following races. We now head home for a few days before moving on to Russia for the next Grand Prix, where we will aim to put what we have learned here to good use."
