The Haas F1 Team’s Kevin Magnussen completed 119 laps on his final day in the VF17 before the start of the 2017 season at the Australian Grand Prix in two weeks time.
Magnussen set the fifth fastest time of the day with a 01:20.504s on the Ultra soft tyre. Speaking following his last day in the car, Magnussen commented by saying:
Another good day. I’m really happy with testing in general. I think we’ve learned a huge amount about the car. We know where we need to work between here and Australia. I’m looking forward to getting back in the car for the race in a couple of weeks.
Speaking following day 3 of the second test, Haas F1 Team Principal Guenther Steiner commented by saying:
A pretty good day. We got almost a race distance in. We ran just a few laps short, something like 20 laps short of a full distance this afternoon. We got a lot of information. We ran to a quite tough program, but it was good. We are very happy with the day today and how it went, and how to get the best out of the data. There’s just one more day to go and then we’ll get ready for Australia.
Romain Grosjean will be back in the car on Friday for the final day of testing before the Australian Grand Prix.
