Senna hails 'productive day' at Jerez
11 February 2012 – Bruno Senna was back at the wheel of his new Williams machine on Friday, completing the most mileage of the field with a total of 124 laps to his name. The Brazilian spent a 'productive' day working with different set-up configurations, as he and the Grove squad seek to fine tune its chassis and new Renault powerplant.
"It’s been another productive day with us testing a number of different set-up directions and finding out a lot more about the car," said Senna, who shaved one second off his time from 24 hours ago. "The car has continued to show good reliability as we completed 124 laps today, which is very satisfying. I’m happy to have started my first two days in the car for Williams on a very good note."
Senna totted up the most number of laps during the four-day test, completing 249 circuit tours, which equates to more than three and a half race distances.
The next pre-season test will be held at the well-known Circuit de Catalunya in Montmeló, with the action getting underway on Tuesday 21 February.
