Today was a much more productive day of running on the final day of the in-season test at the Bahrain International Circuit.
Stoffel was once again back behind the wheel, and as soon as the green light signalled the pit lane was open at 09:00, the team was able to start its programme and run comprehensively throughout the day. Stoffel managed 56 laps before a natural pause in proceedings around lunchtime, when the team took the opportunity to make lengthy scheduled set-up changes to the car, before returning to the track at around 16:00.
The team spent much of the day testing a combination of set-up and handling configurations of the chassis, aero data correlation, and power unit driveability and reliability work.
The team concluded a valuable and trouble-free day of running as the session ended at 18:00, with Stoffel having completed 81 laps.
