Pascal Wehrlein: “There is more to come”

1 Mins read

Pascal Wehrlein believes there is still more to come from the new Manor Racing MRT05 after completing 71 laps of the Circuit de Catalunya on Tuesday.

The German racer set the eighth fastest time of the day with a 1m25.925s on the Soft Pirelli tyre, and hands over the car now to team-mate Rio Haryanto after focusing on consistency rather than outright pace so far in Spain.

“Another good day in the car for me,” said Wehrlein. “We worked on different mechanical set-ups, which was really interesting and gave me the chance to explore and understand the car a little more. I’m pretty pleased with our performance.

“We focused on consistency rather than the softer spectrum tyres, so we have yet to evaluate the car on the supersofts and ultrasofts, which means there is more to come. We’re making good progress and I can’t wait to get back in the car next week.

“For now though I must hand over to Rio for his turn but I’ll be keeping an eye on things from the garage.”
