“It was a good test. Definitely a hard track, hard to get everything right. We started out today with no grip at all. The track was very green. Then we put some rubber down and went pretty fast. It took very little time to get the rubber down, get like the rubber line on the track. I think we had a good, valuable test day, with similar conditions to the race in three weeks. With the race being a one-day event, this definitely helped us. We had until 10 p.m., we had a long day, lots of time to get everything right.”
