Unlike most rivals, in the Haas F1 today did not work with the softest part of the C5. The team shared the day between the pilots, but only Kevin Magnussen managed to complete the program, and Roman Grosjean waited a long time for the mechanics to solve the problem with the exhaust system.

Kevin Magnussen: “Today we continued our program and did everything we should have. I am glad to drive a great distance, I feel comfortable in the car, I look forward to the tests tomorrow, the last in the winter program. We are intensely preparing for it, but most of all we are now waiting for the start of the season. ”

Roman Grosjean: “During the lunch break, the team discovered a problem whose solution took time. It ruined my day, now I think about tomorrow morning session, when I will sit behind the wheel for the last time before being sent to Melbourne.

On tests, it was possible to make progress, to evaluate the capabilities of the machine. While we did not think about the time on the circle – we will arrive in Melbourne and fully lay out in the qualification. Now the main thing – to achieve from the VF 19 more, adding in all areas. Like last year, the mood is positive. ”

Gunter Steiner, team leader: “It is a pity that today we did not manage to drive the planned distance. The first session went well, we did almost everything we wanted, but during the day there were problems and we lost time.

I hope all the damage will remain on the tests, and in the course of the season the car will be reliable. The first two days of the tests went well, if tomorrow everything goes well, we must be in good shape. ”
