Sebastian managed just six laps at today’s testing at the Bahrain International Circuit, before the gearbox problem confined him to the garage. He emerged at the very end of the session and completed a couple more laps, plus a practice start.
A few words from Seb:
“It was not such a busy day for me. We experienced a gearbox issue quite early on and that kept the car in the garage. The guys did a great job to quickly fit a new gearbox and we got back out just before the end of the morning session. Doing so few laps today wasn’t ideal because there is just one more day of testing before we come back here for the race and I am still learning about this new car. Fortunately, things went a bit better this afternoon for Lance giving us some important information. Hopefully, we can have a more straightforward day tomorrow.”
