2014 Barcelona: Lotus Formula One F1 Wednesday Test Recap


Pastor Maldonado ended the second day of the test at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya fastest by almost a second after 102 trouble-free and extremely productive laps. Pastor set a time of 1min 24.871secs using super soft tyres late in the afternoon after completing numerous aero and set-up evaluations under glorious blue skies.

Fast Facts: Track: Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, Spain, 4.7km Chassis: E22-03 Weather: Dry, blue skies and sunshine, air 12-22°C, track 18-35°C Programme: Assessment of aero, set-up, mapping and tyres. Laps Completed: 102 Classification: P1, 1:24.871 Interruptions: Occasional red flags.

What's Next? The team is next in action at the Monaco Grand Prix on May 22-25.

Pastor Maldonado: "That was a complete day for us and my first normal day of testing this season. We didn’t have any problems and we gained a lot of good running with good track conditions compared to yesterday’s. We ran to plan and completed everything we wanted to do. We learnt a lot more about the car, the set-up and performance is improving all the time so I’m feeling more comfortable to push too. It’s been a big step forward today which hopefully means we’ll be much better for the rest of the season."

Alan Permane, Trackside Operations Director: "We completed everything we set out to do today including aero assessments, mapping work, energy recovery scenarios, evaluations of set-up and ride height, tyre usage programmes and so on and I’m pleased to say the E22 didn’t miss a beat. We completed over 100 laps today so it’s been very good to see what is possible when we have good reliability. With the data we have collected over the last two days and the progress we’ve made, we’re in much better shape heading to the next races. There is plenty of potential in the E22."
