After a morning hampered by an electrical issue, Daniel Ricciardo got through 67 laps of the Sakhir Circuit in the afternoon on the final day of the first in-season test in Bahrain.
The problem meant that aerodynamic work scheduled for the early part of the day had to be carried over to the afternoon, with the result that Daniel spent most of the afternoon running short data-gathering stints.
“We had a few issues this morning which limited our running, but the afternoon was a lot better”, said Daniel. “This afternoon was about gathering a lot of data for the aero guys, so there were no real performance runs, just pure testing. At the end of the day we got a few medium-length runs in and a few balance changes, like we did yesterday. So, not really a day for the timesheets, but one for the people at the factory and the guys behind the laptops.”
