Honda strong at Sepang

17 March 2006

For the second race weekend in succession, Honda's Anthony Davidson ended Friday free practice as the fastest driver on the track. Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello were the 6th and 8th fastest of the race drivers in Kuala Lumpur today, as they began their preparations for Sunday's Malaysian Grand Prix.

"A pretty straightforward day for us in terms of our set-up and tyre programme," said Button. "There's still a lot more to come from the car and some work to be done to nail the set-up, as Anthony's problem demonstrated. Hopefully we can solve our problems for tomorrow."

Barrichello commented, "We still have some work to do on the braking - I'm still struggling with that a little from Bahrain. There's still a lot of work to do on the set-up but it was positive to see where Anthony ended up today."

Sporting director Gil de Ferran added, "We are happy to have Anthony at the top of the timesheets again, however all three drivers are not entirely pleased with the car, so there is definitely some room for improvement. Despite the fact that the third car running was curtailed, we gathered a lot of data and hopefully will put this to good use tomorrow."

Honda's engineering director Shuhei Nakamoto concluded, "We had a very straightforward day with the engine today. We do not anticipate any problems due to the high temperatures and humidity, despite the fact that this will be the second race weekend's mileage conducted on both engines. We will analyse the data gathered today and work towards achieving a strong qualifying position tomorrow."
