Both drivers had a busy and productive day with positive feedback. In the morning Jacques did some more aero and set-up work as well as systems testing, a starting development programme and traction control settings. In the afternoon he did longer runs so Michelin and the team could study the tyre performance. Both Jacques and his engineers were happy with the work they had done validating what they need for Imola. Robert Kubica did set up work in the morning and then in the afternoon concentrated solely on a tyre programme.
