Forget the times especially in the first testuge. In fact, you should not put too much in them, before it gets seriousness to qualification in Australia.
But a Formula 1 race car driver AT within the first few laps, if there is something to build on. On the new model is going to work, when about a month will be turned all the way up for all systems.
the First impression of the Haas-team VF19's was quite positive.
Last year called Romain Grosjean, the precursor to the shapely. A well-born race car. And he got the degree right.

the Meeting with the new model, despite changes in the aerodynamic regulations for this season is the same.
- Maybe a little better. It has a bit different characteristics with frontvingen and the way in which we control the flow of the air up, but it is the same characteristics, and it is a good platform to work on, says Romain Grosjean to Ekstra Bladet after the team's first testdag.
the Team's aerodynamic designers have done a good job of finding traction despite the obstacles, as the new rules.
- the Car behaves really well. We have been running a part in the simulator, before we came here, and I think that we are in the same place, as we were in the. It is early and I think that there will be more, but generally speaking, it feels good, he says.
- the Development will be the key especially here in the beginning of the year. Vindtunnelen have been good, would have been good, but it is on the track, to find out where one can get better lap times, so it becomes our primary goal.

How the rivals have come through the winter, will the frenchman does not yet relate to.
- It is early to say anything about what happens in the midterfeltet. Some look for sponsors, some for durability and some for performance, so it is difficult to draw a conclusion on the first day.
- the Idea of Haas has always been that the team should be a step better than last year, and I think that we have done so far. It does not mean that slutplaceringen getting better, but that season needs to be better.
- We can start with not losing the wheels in Australia and not spin after a safetycar. It was not ideal last year, and we can do better, but it means that we end up at the same finishing position as last year, or does it mean that we will end up a tad better or worse? I don't know. But the idea is to improve us year after year. We have been doing since 2016, and I hope to again, he says.
Haas spent more time in the garage than they wanted in the course of the day on Monday. The goal was to round 100 laps, but it was only 65 and to much work for the mechanics.

- The main problem today was that we didn't get run enough laps, because we had a problem with brændstofstilførslen. In the afternoon it was better, and hopefully we can continue the trend. All in all it was not a bad day. Today, rather than in the second testuge, says team boss Günther Steiner.
Tuesday is Kevin in the car, and the expectation is to get to run more laps than today. And have learned more about the car. Work with reliability. Only the normal things to test.
