Rosberg happy with day 3 despite conditions

1 Mins read

The Mercedes GP team suffered during the official F1 tests in Jerez yesterday after a heavy downpour forced them to adapt their planned test programme.

Nico Rosberg resumed testing of the MGP W01 in Jerez for the third day of this weeks official tests, with the weather conditions leaving the German with a short dry run in the morning.

With the change in weather, a change in development ensued with Rosberg evaluating the intermediate and wet Bridgestone Potenza tyres whilst running race simulation exercises.

Increasingly bad weather meant any real testing couldn’t happen and the team were reduced to practising starts and pit stops in the final thirty minutes.

Rosberg completed a total of 53 laps throughout the day, but was happy with the outcome: “It’s unfortunate that it was once again a wet day today but we still achieved some valuable testing working on our race weekend procedures such as pit stops and pit entries. The positive side is that I felt very much home in the car and could attack on the half lap that I did in the dry so that gives me confidence and a good feeling for the test days ahead.”

Michael Schumacher will take over from Rosberg today for the final day of the test.
