Test in Barcelona – Day three
Barcelona, 10th March 2011 – A full programme was planned for Sergio Pérez today, with some set up work in the morning followed by a qualifying simulation before the lunch break and a race simulation in the afternoon. After the qualifying simulation – the first ever for the Sauber C30-Ferrari and the first one for the F1 rookie driver – went well, the race simulation was interrupted after only six laps due to a powertrain problem and resumed about an hour later.

“We have had an interesting day as we carried out qualifying practice and race simulation. In the morning we started off with some general set up work, and then went into a qualifying practice, which was the first time we had run the car on low fuel. This was also the first time for Sergio to go through all those procedures from Q1 to Q3. He did a good and controlled set of laps, setting a time of 1:22.042 minutes on soft tyres and 1:21.761 on the super soft compound. In the afternoon we started a race simulation, but unfortunately this was stopped early due to a KERS problem, which meant we could not complete the laps we wanted.”
Sergio Pérez:
“We did a lot of useful preparation work for the first race weekend. Although we could not complete the race simulation because of a technical problem, for me it was an interesting and positive programme. It was my last day of testing. I feel ready and I can’t wait to race!”
What comes next
For tomorrow, the very last day of the 2011 pre-season testing, a qualifying and race simulation for Kamui Kobayashi is planned.
