 Barcelona Test 14:05:2019 Day One

Driver: Nicholas Latifi
Chassis / Engine: FW42-02 / Mercedes-AMG F1 M10 EQ Power+
Location: Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, Spain
Weather: Warm and dry Temperatures (min-max): Air 14-22ºC / Track 27-47ºC 

Dave Robson, Senior Race Engineer: Picking up where he left off in Bahrain, and following some more very strong results in F2, Nicholas drove extremely well all day today. This allowed us to complete almost all the tests that we had planned. Over 134 laps, we completed a series of test programmes as we evaluated some new components and began some preparation for Monaco. Today we used mostly the C2 tyre compound, which was the Option tyre at the race weekend. Tomorrow we will use a more varied range of tyre compounds as we continue our test programme and complete Nicholas’s preparations ahead of his upcoming FP1 outings in Canada and France.

Nicholas Latifi: It was a productive day and we completed the greatest number of laps. The sessions ran smoothly, and we were able to get through our programme, despite the few red flag interruptions. Days like these are important for me to ensure that I am comfortable in the FW42 and understand what it is capable of ahead of my upcoming FP1 outings. I look forward to getting back in the car tomorrow for further testing in Barcelona.

The FW42 returns to the track tomorrow for the final day of testing in Barcelona with Nicholas Latifi behind the wheel.
