After three fly-away Grand Prix, the three week gap between the Bahrain and Spanish Grand Prix enables testing to resume in Barcelona this week and the Ferrari man was quickest with a best lap of 1:18.339 seconds, a cool 2.7 seconds clear of his nearest rival.

The Bahrain Grand Prix winner recorded the time on his 71st of 77 laps completed.

With the exception of Super Aguri and Toro Rosso, the remaining nine teams fielded a car each at the circuit last used at the end of February.

Alex Wurz took to the circuit in the Honda RA108 and despite a small fire in the morning, was able to put in 75 laps of the 4.655km circuit ahead of Pedro de la Rosa in the McLaren Mercedes.

The Spanish test driver was on track with a run of the slick tyre, putting in a total of 113 laps.

Nick Heidfeld, now second in the championship standings with BMW Sauber, set the fourth fastest time ahead of Nelson Piquet in the Renault.

David Coulthard was sixth fastest in the Red Bull Renault ahead of Kazuki Nakajima in the Williams.

Timo Glock put in 93 laps for Toyota despite losing time after going off while Tonio Liuzzi gained some more mileage with the Force India squad.

Toro Rosso are present at the circuit as they prepare the new STR3 challenger and they are expected to take part when testing resumes on Tuesday but Super Aguri will not test this week.
