Maldonado gets first test day in new FW35
15 February 2013 – Williams driver Pastor Maldonado will complete the first full test day in the FW35 at the Circuit de Catalunya, the Grove-based squad confirmed on Friday. The team will be the last to reveal its new design in Barcelona, having tested with its 2012 car at Jerez.
Following Maldonado's run on Tuesday, new team-mate Valtteri Bottas will get behind the wheel for the second day. The pair will then alternate for the final two days of running, equally sharing the morning and afternoon sessions on Thursday and Friday.
Williams development driver Susie Wolff is scheduled to shakedown the FW35 at the Idiada motorsport complex, to the north of Barcelona, before the test gets underway.
