Q&A - Mark Gillan, Williams

The left hand side of Bruno's car took a reasonably hard impact, which damaged a number of our sensors and also the bodywork. The car stood up well to the impact and Bruno's pace was very good, although we had less live telemetry data on which to monitor the car's performance during the race.

Q:
How would you sum up tyre wear during the race? Could Pirelli have been more aggressive with their choice of tyre compounds at Yas Marina?

Mark Gillan:
Tyre wear was under control and yes, in hindsight, Pirelli could probably have been a bit more aggressive in their compound choice.

Q:
The all-new Circuit of the Americas is the next venue on the calendar. Having never visited the track before, how much of a step into the unknown is this race going to be?

Mark Gillan:
In terms of up front information, it will be a similar experience to what we had going to Delhi last year. Despite a relative lack of data, with the fidelity of the latest simulator tools we expect to get very close in our modelling to a decent start set-up.
