Thomas Couyotopoulo, Sporting Director of Racing Engineering:
"This week's test days in Barcelona were the second part of the on track preparation work for the season. We have gathered a lot of information that will be analysed in depth now. The low air and track temperature are conditions quite far from what we have during normal race weekends, which is taken into consideration when preparing for Sepang. It will be an interesting season and we will work hard to fight for the top spots this year."
Fabio Leimer: "I am satisfied with these three days of testing, as I also was with the work done in Jerez. We were able to try many different things and could go through our program. Everything we wanted to look at, we were able to do. As in Jerez, we gathered a lot of information that will prove helpful in the future. Now we have to proceed with the analysis of the information obtained, but I have a positive feeling for the start of the season in Sepang."
Nathanaël Berthon: "We worked very hard during the last three days as we had a really big test program. We didn't show a quick pace, but this was not our aim for these three days. We didn't simulate qualifying when the track here was at its quickest, as the others did. We waited for the track to be as hot as possible. For sure we still need a bit more performance, but I think it will be OK in Malaysia. We also did several race sims and so did Fabio and things went really well. We have to continue working and there is still more to understand about the new tyre compounds. But the engineers know what to do after these three days and I was also more confident here than I was during last week's test in Jerez. I feel more and more familiar with the car."
