2014 Bahrain: Williams Formula One F1 Saturday Test Recap

2014 Bahrain: Williams Formula One F1 Saturday Test Recap


Driver: Felipe Nasr Chassis / Engine: FW36-02 / PU106A Hybrid Location: Bahrain International Circuit 5.412km Objectives: Reliability, aero evaluations and mileage for Nasr Weather: Hot and Sunny Maximum air & track temps: 26ºC / 37ºC

Rod Nelson, Chief Test & Support Engineer: We had Felipe Nasr in the car today. He did a very good job for us. We were keen for him to get some experience of the FW36 under his belt as it's important that he gets up to speed quickly so he can help us with the development of the car. He had a very sensible measured approach so we are happy with what we have seen so far. He gives good feedback, works well with his engineers and is also quick, and so we couldn't ask for more and are also looking forward to running him at some races this season. Once again, were it not for the red flags we would have clocked up over 100 laps for the third day running, so that is a further positive. Overall, it has been a successful test covering most of our reliability work. We can now start to push on performance all the way up to Melbourne.

Felipe Nasr: I am very happy to have driven a Formula 1 car for the first time, and reaching 87 laps made it also a very productive day. There were so many things going through my head before sitting in the car. It was what I was expecting though: very different to any other car I have ever driven with the amount of downforce, brake efficiency and the power. It was a learning process for me, but I was giving feedback to the engineers all day and I think we found some good things. I'm so pleased to have had this opportunity and I am now looking forward to the next time.
