Carlos Sainz adds another 46 laps in the morning session of Day 4 in Barcelona

He will drive on Friday in the last day of preseason testing

Montmeló, 26 February 2020.- Carlos Sainz completed 46 laps in the morning session of the fourth day of winter testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. It was the penultimate day at work for the Spaniard, who will get back behind the wheel on Friday for the final day of testing.

Carlos spent a good portion of the session testing different components of his MCL35, completing 12 installation laps with sensors on his car. Later on, he switched to medium runs, first on the C2 compound and afterwards with the C3. He clocked a 1:18.539 lap in the former and a 1:18.221 in the latter. He was eighth in the standings, even though the result is meaningless because he didn’t go for a flying lap.

"We had a very busy plan for today, with many tests and checks that we performed according to the plan. We haven’t looked for performance yet and we don’t really know what our rivals are doing, so it’s difficult to judge how competitive we are. I will drive again on Friday and we will try to finetune the set-up for Australia".
