SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team completed a productive two day test in Bahrain.

SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team completed its Bahrain test today as Lance Stroll and Sergio Perez shared driving duties. Covering a total of 96 laps between them, Sergio ended the timesheets in P2 with a best lap of 1:29.095 and Lance Stroll in P8 with a lap of 1:30.049.

Tom McCullough, Performance Engineering Director

“Over the last couple of days we have gradually worked our way through a comprehensive job list. The rain yesterday deprived us of track time, but we still managed to collect valuable aero data in the morning with various instrumentation fitted to the RP19.

We continued the aero programme today with Lance before moving our focus to performance and tyre work. Track conditions have been much better today – without the sandy and rainy conditions we experienced on Tuesday – and we made the most of the afternoon to run four different tyre compounds with Sergio.

We rounded off the test with a series of long runs. The timing of this test has been useful because it’s given us the opportunity to get a better understanding of the new parts we introduced over the last two events and we will put that learning to good use in China.”
