Sahara Force India made the most of the second day of testing in Barcelona, as Sergio Perez completed a total of 121 laps - the second highest tally in the field. With two test days remaining this week, Pascal Wehrlein will return to the cockpit tomorrow, with Nico Hulkenberg driving in the final sessions on Sunday.
Perez shared after his run, “I am really happy with the way the day went and by the amount of laps we managed to complete. We worked on understanding the new tyres and I think we took a good step forward in that respect; of course, we are waiting for our 'new baby' to come and we're really looking forward to put all the learning we did in the last two days into practice with the new car. On a personal level, these days have also been valuable to get to know my new race and performance engineers: we made good progress and I am looking forward to even more when working on the simulator this coming week.”
