Racing Point will restore Lance Stroll’s car to its new specification after his crash in first practice damaged several of the new parts he was running.
Stroll’s crash limited the amount of data the team was able to gather from its first major upgrade of the 2019 F1 season.
“Nothing jumped out as being unexpected,” said Green. “We only got one car running with the updated package in FP2 because of Lance’s damage to his car. [That] meant we couldn’t have 100% of the package on his car for the second session.
“But Sergio [Perez] did. We’ll know in the next three or four hours what it’s doing and how it’s performing.”
Green said the team is able to upgrade its car more quickly since their new owners took over last year. However whereas last year their supply of parts was limited by their resources, the rate at which they are upgrading the RP19 means they still don’t necessarily have a large stock of spares.
“The parts we’ve got are all out of date because we’re updating the car so quickly now,” he said. “It’s for different reasons we don’t have all the spares we want.”
