Felipe Nasr:

“It was a productive roll-out day with the new Sauber C35-Ferrari - with more than 100 laps on the Barcelona Circuit. As usual on the first day of testing with the new car, we focussed on several installation and system checks, on set-up changes and, of course, on data collection. It was an extensive programme, on medium and soft tyres, from which we obtained interesting data to look into. For the following test days there is still a lot of work to do.”

Tomorrow, Marcus Ericsson will be behind the wheel of the Sauber C35-Ferrari.
