Valtteri Bottas believes that he is driving even better on his second day of testing for Williams than he did yesterday.
Speaking to AUTOSPORT during the lunch break on the second day of the Abu Dhabi rookie test, the 22-year-old is also happy with the progress that the team made this morning.
"I'm definitely feeling more confident," he told AUTOSPORT. "I worked some things out pretty well, so my driving is better than yesterday.
"We have done the tests that we planned and everything has gone well. I think that my speed is there and the consistency as well.
"The main thing is to get all of the data out of these tests and I'm happy with where we are now. We also had some really good tests with the new Pirelli tyres."
Bottas missed the start of afternoon running as the team works to repair a problem with the wiring loom that occurred shortly before the chequered flag fell for lunch.
It is hoped that the Finn will be able to resume testing imminently.
"We had a small problem before lunch where some smoke started to come in the cockpit," said Bottas. "they are working on it."
