2014 Bahrain: Lotus Formula One F1 Wednesday Test Recap

Romain Grosjean completed a disappointing second and final day of testing at the Bahrain International Circuit with 16 timed laps completed before a power unit failure ended running. Romain’s best lap time of 1min 43.732secs, placed him 11th in the day’s classification.

Fast Facts: Track: Bahrain International Circuit, Bahrain, 5.4km Chassis: E22-02 Weather: Sunny, ambient 27°C - 35°C, track 32°C - 44°C Programme: Aero assessment and evaluation Laps Completed: 16 Classification: P11, 1min 43.732secs

What's Next? The team now heads to the Chinese Grand Prix, 18-20 April 2014

Romain Grosjean: "We were hoping for a good day’s testing today with a programme based on aerodynamic work. Unfortunately, we struggled with power unit issues from the beginning, even when the car was able to run. Fortunately, we did manage some aero work so we did collect some useful data, however we fell far short of what we wanted to achieve. We will analyse the data collected to help us get a better understanding of the car so we can move forwards in China."

Alan Permane, Trackside Operations Director: "The power unit failed to work correctly today. We managed to do some very limited running to do some aero mapping work but at about mid-afternoon the power unit failed completely which meant the end of today’s running and the end of very disappointing two days. We must now focus on the next race and will work hard towards China."
