JARNO TRULLI: “The morning went well for us. We managed to do a decent number of laps and put in a couple of quite long runs but then we had to stop with a mechanical issue which could not be fixed in time for me to go out again today. I would have liked to have had more running today but this is all part of testing a brand new car - we need to iron out the problems now so when the races start we have ironed out all the problems. Hopefully Heikki can put in some decent mileage over the next couple of days and really start to push the development of the car.”

DIETER GASS, SPORTING DIRECTOR: "We had a promising start to the day. We found some interesting results from the setup work we did and have continued to learn more about the Pirelli tyres and how to maximise their grip levels on the car. Overnight we were able to fix the issues we had yesterday but unfortunately we had a mechnical problem at the front of the car that we were not able to fix in time today, but the spare parts we need are arriving from the factory tonight so we will be in good shape for Heikki to get into the car tomorrow."

Ends
Encore une journée moyennement rassurante sur les perfs (11è et dernier temps) et la fiabilité : problème mécanique (non cité clairement) à l'avant en début d'après midi stoppant le roulage en attendant des pièces de rechange qui doivent arriver pour repartir demain matin. Neutral

Espérons que ce n'est qu'une exploration et un apprentissage cool de la voiture et que ça progressera bien! Et mieux vaiut avoir les problèmes maintenant qu'au 1er GP. (dixit Lapalisse mrgreen )

HEIKKI KOVALAINEN: “Today was very encouraging and I really enjoyed driving the car. I still have the same feeling that I had in Valencia - it's fundamentally a good car and there's a lot more to come from it. We managed to make very good progress today, even though we had a problem with the exhaust we still managed to get through most of the programme. The guys worked well to fix the problem, and by the end of the day we had made a number of setup changes, run through all the tyre compounds and had run on a variety of fuel loads. This morning we tried the DRS in race mode and even though I had thought the procedure to initiate it might be pretty complicated it actually all worked easily. Once you get used to it the system is pretty simple. I used it in both race and practice mode and it returns to position well so I have no problems under braking and am very happy with how it all works. By the time the day ended we finished right in the mix so we're all pretty happy with the day's work.
DIETER GASS, SPORTING DIRECTOR: "I think we are all quite pleased with how the day went. The morning and late afternoon sessions were good and even though we lost some time on track around the middle of the day with the exhaust problem we were still able to learn a lot more about the car and complete most of the programme. One of the key learnings from today is with the tyres. I think there we have a lot more work to do to really understand how to get the best out of the tyres but we have definitely taken a step forward with Pirelli today. We also tested the DRS in race conditions today and it was our first chance to try the proximity system - that worked very well and it was good to see that in action as it will be used in race scenarios."

Ends

Meilleure journée aujourd'hui avce un tout petit peu plus de tours malgré un soucis avec les échappements qui a nécessité de monter de nouvelles pièces. Passage des différents Pirelli, essais de l'aileron arrière mobile entre autres et des temps en progrès.
A suivre.

Dernier jour à Jerez et encore quelques petits ennuis (mais le Team Lotus n'est pas le seul à en avoir) de fuite d'eau notamment. L'équipe manque de longs runs mais progresse dans sa compréhension des pneus et de la voiture. Un temps correct à la fin mais ça ne veut pas dire grand chose pour le moment, juste à entretenir l'espoir! 👅 Wink

FASTEST LAP 1.21.632 (lap 42)

13/02/11 Runplan
Driver: Heikki Kovalainen
Chassis: T128-01

0900 – 0902: Run 1, Installation lap

1522 – 1537: Flap adjustments
1537 – 1541: Run 8, 3 laps
1541: Session ends


HEIKKI KOVALAINEN: “The combination of a number of small issues throughout the day and different weather conditions than the last three days meant we had a bit of a disrupted day but we did manage to take another step forward with the setup options and that lap at the end proves there is good pace in the car. We spent quite a lot of time looking at how to find the best balance settings with the tyres and it looks like we keep moving forward in that area. It's a little unfortunate that we had a stop / start day but this is what testing is about. We have a few days now to work on ironing out the issues and look to Barcelona to start working on long runs so I leave Jerez in a positive frame of mind and am already looking to get back in the car next week."

DIETER GASS, SPORTING DIRECTOR: "Firstly I think we're all pleased to see Heikki put in such a good lap at the end of the day in tricky weather conditions - both he and Jarno have performed really well over the last couple of days and I want to thank them both for their efforts. Today was affected by a few issues on the car and the obvious change in the weather but the team has worked extremely hard over the whole test to give both Jarno and Heikki a chance to show what the car can do and our thanks go to them and everyone back in the factory for working so hard. Even with these problems the car does look quick and we have a very good platform to work on in Barcelona and at the final test in Bahrain."

Encore quelques soucis de fiabilité (lubrification de la boîte) pour empécher de faire tout le programme et notamment le long run l'après midi. Ceci dit le Team lotus n'est pas le seul à avoir des problèmes de fiabilité...
Le travail de fond continue néanmoins avec une matinée productive.

1513 – 1524: Run 10, 5 laps
1513 – 1524: Gearbox lubrication problem ends sessioness

HEIKKI KOVALAINEN: “It was good to start the day with some runs on the intermediates in proper damp conditions. There wasn't a lot of standing water on the track but it was pretty damp all round - we needed to try out the inters in these conditions so we've now amassed some very useful data on those. After that we wanted to do a race distance but the gearbox problem meant we couldn't complete that part of the plan. Despite this I'm still finding that the car has good balance and is basically a decent package - we'll sort out the problems and tomorrow we'll try the race distance again and see where we are after that."

MIKE GASCOYNE, CHIEF TECHNICAL OFFICER: "It was a reasonably productive day although we had to stop slightly earlier than planned due to a gearbox lubrication issue. This morning we were able to run on the inters on a damp track for the first time and we have obtained some useful data from those runs. We worked through the rest of the compound choices throughout the day on high fuel loads which is helping us learn more about how to maximise the performance of the Pirellis with the car."

Ends

HEIKKI KOVALAINEN: “I think the positive feeling with this car is growing even though we have had a couple more reliability issues today. They're all teething problems and we are patient while we fix them one by one. We'll get through this and put the reliability issues behind us as we have experienced people in the right positions who know how to deal with them. We still managed to complete a lot of work today and I can't wait to get back in the car."

RICARDO TEIXEIRA: "First I want to thank the whole team for the chance to drive again today. It was really good to be able to get some more laps done and everyone worked really hard to make me feel comfortable in and out of the car. I enjoyed myself out on track and by the third run I was able to start pushing a bit more so I think I did what I was asked to today and have taken another step forward in my development as a driver."

MIKE GASCOYNE, CHIEF TECHNICAL OFFICER: "That was a much more encouraging day today with 84 laps in total on the car. We did have a couple of minor issues with the fuel pressure and a water leak but overall it was a better day for reliability. We were able to give Ricardo his first proper run in an F1 car after he had helped us out in Valencia with our filming and he did just the job we wanted him to. He made no mistakes and consistently brought his lap times down on the medium tyre which I think all the teams have said is probably the slowest tyre we have. With Heikki we wanted to do a race distance which was slightly hindered by the water leak but overall we definitely made progress today."

Toujours des soucis de fiabilité et encore une fuite d'eau qui ont empéché la T128 de beaucoup rouler aujourd'hui. Neutral C'est un tube d'eau qui a du être changé mais remplacé par une pièce déjà réparée faute de pièce neuve. C'est un peu le problème de tous les teams qui n'ont pas encore eu le temps de fabriquer toutes les pièces de rechange. Là un tube neuf va arriver d'Angleterre pour demain.
Malgré le peu de roulage le programme a permis de progresser un peu et Jarno a réalisé un temps très correct l'après midi.
J'ai un peu peur quand même que le team manque de roulage et que l'exploitation de la voiture et des pneus ne soit pas au top pour le premier GP.

JARNO TRULLI: “Despite some mechanical gremlins which cut short my running time today we managed to collect some good data and overall I have a good feeling about the car. It’s good to see that without doing many miles, and it being my first day in the car today on the new tyres in Barcelona, I managed to do some consistently good lap times throughout the end of the afternoon session. This morning we were running on wet and intermediate tyres and evaluating them, and working on some setup changes. All in all it’s been a very positive day and it’s great to see we’re getting closer to the top. It gives me a lot of confidence and gives the whole team encouragement to keep pushing forward. Tomorrow we want to carry out more setup evaluation as today I didn’t run that much and didn’t get the chance to explore the car as I would have liked. We had a number of small problems which eventually we solved but I want to get some more mileage done as there is definitely more potential to come from the car."

MIKE GASCOYNE, CHIEF TECHNICAL OFFICER: "A slightly frustrating day as our running was limited by a problem with a cracking water pipe this afternoon. We knew about the problem but did not have spare parts for it so we had to use parts repaired at the circuit. The team did a good job today to make sure Jarno could get more laps done in the dry conditions and he was fairly happy with the car by the end of the day. We also managed to do a reasonable amount of running in the wet so although it was one of those quite tough days we managed to make fairly decent progress and with new parts available tomorrow we will look to complete some more significant mileage."

Bon, dernière journée écourtée, à priori par une défaillance de la T128 qui a expédié Jarno dans les pneus et le mur. Crying or Very sad Et pas toutes les pièces pour réparer.

Je crains que la T128 manque pas mal de mise au point avant le premier GP car elle n'a pas énormément roulé. Le point positif est que ces ennuis de fiabilité pourront être réglés mais la compréhension des pneus et de la voiture sera inférieure à celle de la plupart des autres équipes (je ne parle pas de HRT... 👅 ).
Autre "avantage" quand même, c'est que l'absence de KERS évite les problèmes et l'apprentissage de cet équipement qui a causé pas mal de soucis à beaucoup d'équipes.
En espérant que d'ici les prochains tests de Barcelone tout soit réglé pour faire des km là bas!

JARNO TRULLI: “It's obviously disappointing to have the test cut short like this but these things happen in motor racing. We started the day well and until the accident happened I had picked up where I left off yesterday - the car has good balance, pace we can build on and has the potential to help us take the fight to the midfield, so I'm leaving here feeling confident about the season ahead and am looking forward to the next test, wherever that will be."

MIKE GASCOYNE, CHIEF TECHNICAL OFFICER: "Unfortunately the day was cut short due to the accident Jarno suffered this morning at turn 9. It was not his fault - it was caused by a car failure and we were missing a part we needed to put the car back together which meant we had to cut day four short. Despite this I still think there are a great deal of positives to take from the test in terms of the pace of the car and the fact that we are on top of the reliability issues. With that in mind we leave here with work to do but still on target for where we want to be. We will wait to see where the next test will be held and with the time we now have back at the factory we will be working hard to make sure we run through our complete programme at that test."

Le Team Air Asia fournisseur de pilote pour le Team Lotus : ce sera le cas avec le roulage de Valsecchi dans la T128 3 heures à Barcelone. 👅

Plus de nouvelles de Chandock, ça me semble compromis, son exigence de rouler au GP d'Inde était un peu too much certainement.

Sinon, ça se confirme, Valsecchi devrait rouler le vendredi matin en Australie et Malaisie.

Selon le site italien (omnicorse.it), Valsecchi roulerait une matinée avant de céder sa place à Teixeira l'après midi.

Première journée de cette reprise pas trop mal mais encore perturbée par un petit souci mécanique l'après midi qui a fait perdre 1h et demi. 81 tours couverts quand même. Valsecchi a bien roulé le matin. Razia s'en est aussi pas mal sorti l'après midi en progressant mais avec moins de roulage.

DAVIDE VALSECCHI: “First I want to thank Team Lotus for the opportunity to drive the car today. It was a great experience and one I want to build on with the team. To begin with it was obviously all new to me - new seat, more power, better brakes, the whole package, but by the end of the morning I was much more confident in the car and had the chance to push. By the time the morning session ended I think the team were pretty happy with how I performed so I can't really ask for more than that. It's definitely been a good day."

LUIZ RAZIA: "It was really good to get back into an F1 car and pretty much from the first laps I could feel that this car is a step forward from what I have driven before. Despite the delay this afternoon while the car was being fixed I'm pleased with how I performed. I know that with more running my times would have come down but today wasn't about setting fastest laps - it was about learning how to work with the team to the agreed plan and give feedback that helps the car and the team continue to develop."

MIKE GASCOYNE, CHIEF TECHNICAL OFFICER: "A pretty good first day of this fourth test. We managed to run through our whole programme with the two drivers and they both did an excellent job. Apart from one small spin for Davide at the end of his session neither of them made any mistakes and Luiz performed very well, despite his time in the car being slightly cut short due to a minor mechanical issue. I'm sure that he would have improved even further with more running and after having completed our plans for the day I want to thank both drivers for the work they have done in the car today."

Oui, pas mal. Entre hier et aujourd'hui l'équipe a pu faire pas mal de tours avec de longs runs et progresser dans la recherche des réglages optimisant l'usure des différents pneus, acquérir pas mal de données et mieux comprendre le fonctionnment de la voiture et des pneus.
A suivre.

They're behaving pretty much how we expected them to and the changes we made to the car gave us the results we wanted so we'll look through all the information we've gathered and see if we can take another step forward tomorrow."

MIKE GASCOYNE, CHIEF TECHNICAL OFFICER: "Today was a very good day for us, much more productive than a couple of the days we have had in testing so far. It is good to complete 98 laps with no real problems on the car. We concentrated on long runs, looking at tyre degradation and setup options, and the pitcrew worked through a number of pitstop practices in advance of the first race so we ran through the entire plan and everyone is happy with the work that has been done today."

Problème de boîte ce matin pour Jarno. La boîte avait été changée pendant la nuit, c'est la nouvelle boîte qui a laché au bout de 6 tours (problème de fabrication ou d emontage?).
Du coup la matinée a été perdue mais Kova a bien roulé l'après midi et a signé un temps pas mal.

A noter que c'est le 2ème châssis T128 qui tourne, le 03 a rempacé le 01.

HEIKKI KOVALAINEN: "That was a pretty good afternoon for me. Jarno had some problems this morning with one of those things that's hard to predict but the team managed to get it sorted for the afternoon and we were able to work through the whole plan. I can feel it coming together well - we'll sort out the reliability and I think we are just where we want to be.

MIKE GASCOYNE, CHIEF TECHNICAL OFFICER: "A difficult morning for Jarno with the gearbox change. We had put a new 'box on overnight but saw a problem with it this morning so had to change it during the session. Unfortunately a water leak then meant that Jarno was not able to complete any real running, but this afternoon we made some real progress with Heikki. He was able to work through a program on the tyre options and the blown diffuser so after a tricky morning it was a very positive end to the day."

Team Lotus annonce trois pilotes d’essais et de réserve
Une équipe bien garnie !
vendredi 11 mars 2011 - 18h24, par Olivier Ferret

Team Lotus n’a pas fait aussi bien que Lotus Renault GP mais elle s’en approche avec trois pilotes d’essais et de réserve confirmés ce soir par l’équipe de Tony Fernandes.

Luiz Razia et Davide Valsecchi ont été officiellement intronisés, mais ils avaient déjà été plus ou moins confirmés à ce poste puisque l’équipe anglais avait annoncé il y a plusieurs semaines déjà que ce sont les pilotes de l’équipe sœur AirAsia en GP2 qui officieraient en réserve chez Team Lotus.

Le troisième homme n’est pas une surprise, il s’agit de Ricardo Teixeira, le Portugais d’origine angolaise qui a déjà testé par deux fois la voiture cet hiver, une fois lors des essais privés et une autre lors d’une journée de tournage promotionnel.

Cette annonce semble mettre fin aux espoirs de Karun Chandhok de rejoindre toute la troupe de Tony Fernandes.

Ce que l'on peut préciser c'est que Razia est le 3ème pilote, Valsecchi pilote d'essai (tous les 2 rouleront plusieurs vendredi de GP) et que Teixeira est 2ème pilote d'essai.

Bonne journée avec de nombreux tours effectués (138!) par Kova et beaucoup de data. Le matin un test en conditions "perfos" et le roulage dans le traffic avec l'aileron AR en conditions course.
L'après midi, longs runs d'une vingtaine de tours en pneus durs et grosse charge d'essence. Le rythme est plutôt réguliers sauf en toute fin de run.
La T128 avait un nouvel aileron avant qui a donné satisfaction.
Gascoyne annonce d'autres évolutions à l'avant de la voiture pour Melbourne. Very Happy

HEIKKI KOVALAINEN: "That is obviously a fantastic end to the tests. Everyone in the team has put in a lot of hard work and days like today are the reward. Completing a double-race distance has given us the chance to make a lot of progress on track and we have accumulated a huge amount of data that will be very helpful in Australia, Malaysia and China. I'm not only pleased with the mileage we've done today, i'm also pleased with the pace we've shown. It's too early to make predictions but I think we'll go to Melbourne and have a good chance to taking the step forward we want to. A good day!"

MIKE GASCOYNE, CHIEF TECHNICAL OFFICER: "An excellent last day of the test, and a very good way to finish the four pre-season tests. We completed our full programme today, worked through a lot of set-up options and also completed two race distance runs which is very satisfying. To have finished with a double-race distance is a great effort from the team who have worked extremely hard. It is clear that compared to this time last year we have made a huge step forward so this a great way to finish and now we can look forward to the action in Melbourne."
