It proved to be a productive day in Barcelona as Sergio Perez and Nick Yelloly clocked up 229 laps.

SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team completed a successful first day of testing in Barcelona with Nick Yelloly behind the wheel of the RP19.

Sergio Perez was also on driving duty in a second car completing a Pirelli testing programme.

Brad Joyce, Head of Trackside Performance

"It has been a positive first day of testing. Nick focussed on aerodynamic work and car familiarisation to ensure the feedback he gives in the simulator is accurate. He did a solid job putting plenty of laps on the board and setting baselines for future development. This is the last in-season test so it is important that we learn as much as we can to guide development for the rest of the season.  

Sergio was in a second car completing work for Pirelli, which also went smoothly.  Track conditions were good - similar to those we saw over the race weekend - and between the two cars we clocked up 229 laps. We hope to have another productive day tomorrow."
