Software problem on Monday, failure of an element of the Power Unit RE16 on Tuesday, the debut of the new RS16 did not benefit from exemplary reliability. If a water leak disrupted the Dane's day Kevin Magnussen today, the Dane, for his return to the wheel, was able to complete 111 loops of the Montmelo track while setting the fourth time in 1'26"014. “The day was much better in terms of reliability. We were able to carry out a more extensive program by working on the settings and aerodynamics, but also by carrying out longer stints, indicates Alan Permane, Director of Track Operations. . We therefore have a lot of data to study tonight. It was our first day with Kevin. He got into the rhythm very quickly and he should be an excellent asset for the season ahead. » The former pilot McLaren will be back in action tomorrow for the last day of the week.
