Rocquelin from Red Bull Racing: 'Enormously productive period of testing'

Guillaume Rocquelin, head of race engineering at Aston Martin  Red Bull Racing, commented after the last day of testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya: “We came here with a new car, a new engine partner and a new driver, and we leave Barcelona with all of those elements working extremely well together. Problems such as today’s inevitably arise during testing and it’s a shame that it disrupted our final day."

"However, I don’t think we should let it colour what we have achieved over these two weeks in Barcelona. We’ve had an enormously productive period of testing and we’ve learned a great deal about the RB15 and the direction we want to go in as we head into the season. Honda have been outstanding throughout, we have had great reliability and the rapport with the Team is exceptional. As for the car, the balance is good, the performance is there and we’re ready to go racing.”
