2014 Barcelona: Sauber Formula One F1 Wednesday Test Recap


Although the Sauber F1 Team lost an hour on day two of the Barcelona test due to a problem with the powertrain, it was able to complete the planned programme and get some valuable information. In the morning the main focus was on aerodynamic testing in order to fine tune the development package, while in the afternoon the team worked on suspenision development parts as well as different set-up configurations. Overall the team was very pleased with the outcome of the day. In total, Esteban completed 85 laps.

Circuit: Circuit de Catalunya / 4.655 km Driver: Esteban Gutiérrez Weather: Dry, air 12-22 °C, track 18-35 °C Chassis / engine: C33-02 / Ferrari Laps today: 85 laps, 395.675 km Fastest lap: 1:26.972

Paul Russell, Test Engineer: "We had a good day. In the morning we did short runs and worked on the aerodynamics in order to fine tune the development package which we brought to the Spanish Grand Prix. We definitely made some good progress there. Late morning we had a problem with the powertrain, which caused us to postpone a bit of work to the afternoon. It took us an hour, but it didn’t really hold us up. After lunch we tested several suspension parts on longer runs and higher fuel loads in order to identify how these are working in race configuration. Besides that, we also worked on the set-up of the car. It’s been very positive as we got some good results. We achieved a good correlation from what we measured and what Esteban told us. We are quite encouraged with today’s outcome."

What comes next Next week the Monaco Grand Prix already kicks off, the sixth round of the FIA Formula One World Championship, which will take place from the 22nd to 25th of May 2014.
