2014 Bahrain: Red Bull Formula One F1 Wednesday Test Recap

2014 Bahrain: Red Bull Formula One F1 Wednesday Test Recap


Driver: Daniel Ricciardo Car: RB10 Laps: 67 Best time: 1:37.310 Circuit length: 5.412km Fastest Lap: L. Hamilton (1:34.136)

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."

Race Engineering Co-ordinator Andy Damerum added: "It was a bit of a mixed bag today. We had planned to do a chunk of mapping work this morning but we discovered an electrical issue that put paid to most of our morning. We had a fairly strict schedule run plan today, so that mapping work then got moved to the afternoon and we got through it successfully and got a lot of data from that. No real performance runs at all and most Daniel’s running was out and in stuff, but I think the amount of information we gathered will make a few people back at the factory extremely happy. Then in the last three quarters of an hour we had a chance to get through a few test items. So, a pretty successful day in terms of the afternoon work but obviously we would have liked to have had a totally smooth day in order to get through the whole programme. But it’s all good value and we’ll head home tonight having learned a lot and with a lot more information to sift through in the coming days."
