Itconfirmed what we have seen from the first tests with our new car, andthat we don't seem to have any big issues with reliability. The smallthings from the last two days I would rate as typical testing issues. Sofrom my side, I am happy with our first full testing session, and wehave definitely improved our game which is what we wanted to achieve. Towhat extent, we can only see later, but I am finishing with a positivefeeling."
