WELL DONE!

This is untrue: you need more time! Firstly, because the track has to be cleaned and rubberised, then because you need to establish the optimal set-up of the chassis, which in turn influences the tyre pressure. When we talk about competitions at an international level, I would say that we can begin to identify tyre pressures reliably following the second day of testing.
