Successful Test Concludes in Barcelona
Nick Yelloly & Lance Stroll rack up the mileage on a bright and breezy second day of testing in Spain.
SportPesa Racing Point F1 Team completed a second and final day of running at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya with Nick Yelloly once again on track in the RP19. Lance Stroll was behind the wheel of a second car to support the Pirelli testing programme.

“Conditions have been a bit more challenging today, with higher winds creating a dusty circuit and making things a little less straightforward. Turns three, nine and twelve in particular have been very tricky. Nonetheless, it’s been a useful session.
Lance has driven the Pirelli car today and completed the full programme for them. With Nick in the test car, we focused on long-term aero development and correlation work. He’s done a good job – driving well, giving accurate feedback and not putting a foot wrong.
Monaco is a very different circuit to Barcelona, but we’ve gathered a lot of data during this test which will be useful next week and for the races beyond.”
