But as the track rubbers-in and cleans up, I’m sure it will get even better. The grip level did improve from morning to afternoon but I’d expected a bit more.

Therefore I am happy with the way today went overall, the car ran reliably and the team did a good job

The ingenious device, operated by the drivers covering a slot inside the cockpit, temporarily ‘stalled’ the airflow over the McLaren’s rear wing, giving a straightline speed boost, before the downforce was restored for corners. McLaren’s rivals were soon hurrying to copy the F-duct, but the Woking squad had taken a handy early advantage with the system, which was one of the most distinctive Formula 1 design innovations of recent years

Jarno Trulli – 6th: “Everything went well today and we did our usual Friday testing work.
