T04 BAHRAIN – DAY TWO

Bahrain International Circuit, Bahrain – 9th April 2014

Driver: Marcus Ericsson, #9

Chassis: CT05-#01

Total laps: 66

Fastest lap: 1.39.263

Marcus Ericsson: “It was a good morning session for us, running through a plan that started with aero work with a front wheel wake rake fitted for aero evaluation, and then some work on the braking system that gave us a lot of interesting information. We didn’t really have any issues so we were able to get through most of the morning runplan and then broke for lunch just before the morning session ended.

“In the afternoon session we started with a number of runs with a rear wing rake on, carrying out more aero work and then removed it to start the final planned runs of the test, but on my 13th run of the day we had an issue that stopped the car at turn eight. We got the car back and identified the problem as an ERS electrical issue but didn’t have enough time to fix it and go back out so that was the end of the test.

“Even with the problem in the afternoon we got through a lot of work today and everyone’s reasonably pleased with what we’ve achieved. We have a lot more information to work through at the factory before China – now it’s time to pack up for the last time in Bahrain in 2014 and prepare for the next race weekend in Shanghai in a week’s time.”
