Sergio Perez :“As expected it has been quite a slow day for everybody in Jerez. The main job was to learn as much as possible each time the car went out so that we could identify and solve any issues. It was not really possible to get a feeling for the car because we only did a small number of laps, but the important thing is that the car is up and running.”

Andrew Green, Technical Director:

“Today’s laps were a key first step for the development of the VJM07. There’s still a long way to go, but we have been able to start checking all the new systems on the car, especially the power unit and the gearbox. There have been a few teething problems, which is to be expected with a new car, but we’ve already learned a great deal in just one day. The plan for tomorrow is more of the same as we continue to get miles on the car.”

  • Sergio Perez will be back in the VJM07 tomorrow (29th January 2014)
