Esteban Ocon: “I was very happy to get the opportunity to drive today and I’m pleased with how things went. It’s always good to get more experience in a Formula One car and I’ve learned a huge amount about this car and this team. We worked on a lot of things – mainly on the aero side and we completed most of the things we had planned. The team has given me some good feedback and I improved during the day – step by step with each run. I hope I get another chance to drive a Formula One car soon.”

Alex Lynn: I didn’t really sleep that well last night as I was so excited about today. It has been an amazing day and great to get behind the wheel of the FW37. We managed to get through a really important schedule and I completed a number of runs in the car. The team were happy with how we got on and with my performance, so all-in-all it has been a really positive day.

Jolyon Palmer: “It was great to be in the car for a full day of productive testing especially here in Barcelona where I tested in the pre-season and then drove in FP1. I think we’ve made real progress as a team with the set-up of the car and I know I’m improving every time I get in the car. We ran through a lot of different programmes and assessments and it was a great day at the office for me.”
