Their focus on Tuesday has been exchanging and tailoring the new TOMMY HILFIGER apparel. It's crucial that the team feel comfortable and confident in their kit at races and events. They need to not only look good, but feel good too, so making sure everyone has the right sizes is an important task.
That's easier said than done, though. People may have changed sizes since they last ordered team kit, or the new Official Apparel Partner's own sizing might be a little different. From each bag of kit distributed, there will always be one or two items that don't fit perfectly and need exchanging. So, Teamwear and Merchandise have been kept very busy on Tuesday.
It's been a similar story over in the race bays, with the mechanics and engineers hard at work prepping the new W09 for its big moment. The car started to take shape on Monday, with the chassis and engine being the main priority, but Tuesday was all about rear suspension and bodywork.
Those jobs look set to go on long into the night, but thankfully the build team works across three different shifts, to avoid putting the crew through unnecessarily-long days at the factory. Four people work on each shift, with a few extra support staff joining the party throughout the day.
