BAR has better idea of where it stands


BAR Honda continued its preparations for the 2005 season at the Valencia circuit in Spain last week. The three-day test saw all four B·A·R Honda drivers participating as the intensive pre-season testing programme continues. With four weeks until the season-opener at Melbourne, the team concentrated on tyre and reliability development in the new B·A·R Honda 007 car

"Our test in Valencia this week has given the team a much better insight into our performance levels as we have been able to compare ourselves with five other 2005 specification cars," revealed test team manager Andrew Alsworth. "Overall we've been encouraged with the new car and have run almost 3000 kms over the three days. We have a few reliability issues to sort out and are confident that these can be addressed during the next few tests."

"This was our third week in Valencia giving us plenty of opportunity to tune the car into the characteristics of the circuit," he added. "Next week we will move the test programme down to Jerez to evaluate the car on a more high speed and demanding circuit."
