New Williams driver Robert Kubica wrapped up pre-season proceedings with a tidy-looking 1:18.993 and 90 laps on Friday and the Pole tried to remain positive in his assessment of the day, although his time was a second slower than the second-slowest driver on the day.
The Grove-based team didn't look very good at the start of testing by missing two and a half days of on-track time at the Circuit de Catalunya, already leaving them with a disadvantage compared to the other teams.
Although he was clearly trying to remain positive in the aftermath, Kubica wasn't thrilled with how things went down in Barcelona.
“There were some positive things,” the one-time Grand Prix winner was quoted by PlanetF1.
“But it’s difficult to say [if] it moved forward when actually you are staying in the garage or you are running in the car which is not in the configuration it should be.
“It’s difficult to get any valid information, any valid feedback.
“Unfortunately the car was not representative to what it should be.”
Coming off the back of their worst-ever season in which they finished in last season, Williams look to be set for another year of struggles.
