76 More laps for Fairuz Fauzy on
the first day of the Barcelona test marks
another satisfactory day for Lotus Racing. In
dry, sunny conditions the team completed all its
objectives for the day and are now looking
forward to seeing Jarno Trulli take over driving
duties tomorrow and Saturday.
Chief Technical Officer Mike Gascoyne gave his
thoughts on the day's on track action, saying "It
was a very productive day - 76 laps with no
mechanical worries on the car. In the morning we
conducted some engine LAMDA running which we
completed successfully. We ran through a series
of system set up checks, completed our first
starts and evaluated a number of other control
systems on the car, as well as monitoring
temperatures and pressures throughout the car.
"All in all this was a successful day both on
the track and we ticked off a lot of behind the
scenes tasks ahead of the first race. Fairuz did
a very good job today, with no mistakes, and we
were able to complete our whole program."
Jarno Trulli takes over tomorrow with more dry
running ahead of the Lotus Racing team.
