The Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN reserve driver completed an overall total of 240 laps on the Spanish Grand Prix circuit, putting the new-spec rubber, which will be used in the 2022 season, through a distance of more than three and a half races.

With the two-day test now complete, the team’s attention turns to the next round of the Formula One world championship, taking place in Monaco next week.

Robert Kubica (Car #88):
“It’s been two very busy but productive days. It’s always interesting to discover new features of the car, especially when it’s something as important as the tyres. These are our team’s first steps with the new 18-inch tyres so there is a lot to learn. We covered lots of laps, lots of miles and got a lot of data that will keep everyone busy. It’s been a tough two days: I hadn’t been in the car for a while before last Friday and to run for two days on such a demanding track was a challenge, but one we happily completed with success.”
