Day One
Tuesday 17 May, Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya
Pascal MRT05-03 P5 of 10 86 laps 1:24.297

Pascal Wehrlein:
“Today has been a positive day for us. We worked through a pretty big list of items to evaluate the new developments and also did some runs on the Supersoft later in the day. Obviously we didn’t run that tyre over the race weekend so it was interesting to have the comparison against the other teams with our updated package. For me it will be nice to focus on Monaco now, where I think we can have a better weekend as a result of the work we’ve done here today.”
Dave Ryan, Racing Director:
“We’ve had a good first day at what is a busy test, particularly in terms of today’s programme with Pascal. This is a chance for us to continue the evaluation of our new developments and really get to grips with the areas where we are still a little deficient so that we can keep improving. Pascal has done a good job. As ever, his feedback has been very comprehensive and our relative pace on the Supersoft is encouraging. We look forward to giving our Development Driver Jordan King his first taste of the MRT05 tomorrow.”
