Mercedes GP Jerez test II report day one
Racing series F1
Date 2010-02-17

Track Circuito de Jerez
Driver Michael Schumacher

No of Laps 111 laps
Best Lap Time 1:23.803
Kilometres Covered 492km
Track Length 4.428km

Weather Intermittent rain showers
Ambient Temperature Maximum 17C
Track Temperature Maximum 21C

The MERCEDES GP PETRONAS team began the third pre-season test at the Jerez circuit in southern Spain today with Michael Schumacher at the wheel of the MGP W01.

After last week's rain-affected test, further bad weather left the track very wet for the start of testing this morning and intermittent rain showers continued to disrupted the action throughout the day.

With the team's programme constantly adapting to suit the conditions, Michael began the day on wet tyres before switching to intermediates as a dry line began to emerge by late morning. Michael successfully completed a planned long run on dry tyres in the early afternoon before a further downpour soaked the track. Despite the interruptions, Michael completed 111 laps today, covering 492kms.

Nico Rosberg will take over the car tomorrow for the second day of the test.

Michael Schumacher: "The weather was really changing all the time today which made it difficult to follow our planned programme and to have a clear picture of everyone's performance. From the laps that we achieved, we have again confirmed the reliability of the car, and from the impressions and data gathered, we can say that the pace and performance looks very good. We have a strong basis to keep up the development this week here in Jerez and next week at the final test in Barcelona."

Track Circuito de Jerez
Driver Nico Rosberg

No of Laps 71 laps
Best Lap Time 1:28.515
Kilometres Covered 314kms
Track Length 4.428kms

Weather Wet and windy with frequent showers
Ambient Temperature Maximum 13C
Track Temperature Maximum 13C

Nico Rosberg was back in the MGP W01 car today as the MERCEDES GP PETRONAS team continued this week's test programme in Jerez, Spain. Poor weather continued to affect the testing action with frequent heavy rain showers and strong winds causing a frustrating day for the teams and drivers.

The team worked hard to make the best of the ever-changing conditions with Nico completing a wet set-up programme in the morning and focusing on race procedures including practice pit stops in the afternoon when the track conditions became too poor for any meaningful running. Nico completed 71 laps today.

Michael Schumacher will drive the MGP W01 tomorrow with Nico completing the programme on Saturday.

Nico Rosberg: "On the positive side, we achieved some good mileage today despite the conditions and completed a lot of our systems work. It was useful for me to practice pit stops and get into the routine for the races. However it has been difficult and frustrating with the weather as we're obviously not able to learn as much as we could with a dry track. But that's the same for everyone and we will hope for an improvement over the next two days."

I assume the weather is still crappy! The times are so spread apart that you can't make anything out of it! I'm really looking forward to the qualifying session in Bahrain!

Jerez Test - Day Three Webber fastest

* Jerez Test - Day Three

Webber fastest at Jerez

* Unexpected sunshine provides perfect conditions

After an unexpectedly dry day at Jerez, Mark Webber finished top of the table and recorded the fastest lap at the Spanish circuit so far during testing. Despite the near perfect conditions the day was disrupted by six red flags, the fourth of which was caused by Webber's Red Bull stopping on track.

Throughout the day the fastest lap was shared between Webber, Jenson Button - who eventually finished third - and Fernando Alonso, whose time of 1:20.115 was good enough for second fastest.

Nico Hulkenberg clocked up 138 laps - the highest number by any driver - as Williams spent the day running race simulations and practicing pit stops. The team experienced no problems until the car stopped on track with five minutes of the session remaining, halting action for the day.

Despite a long unexplained absence during the middle of the day, Michael Schumacher ran for 79 laps, recording a best time of 1:21.437, enough to leave him fifth in the standings. Robert Kubica enjoyed an uneventful day in the Renault and ran as high as fourth at one point before finishing the day sixth.

Force India's Adrian Sutil did not venture out until after 11am, but despite the slow start to the day, still recorded 69 laps. It was a torrid day for Sauber, as Kamui Kobayashi only started running just before 11am and immediately caused the third red flag of the day. It turned out to be a fuel supply problem, but the car was not ready to run again until after 4pm. As a result the team managed only 28 laps, missing out on the best conditions of the week so far.

Virgin's Lucas di Grassi was responsible for two of the six stoppages of the day, the first when he spun off (narrowly avoiding making contact with the barriers) in the morning, the second when his car came to a halt on track later in the afternoon. With all the problems Virgin only completed 34 laps. The only consolation came in recording a marginally quicker time than fellow newcomers Lotus.

After a crash stopped Lotus' testing yesterday, it took just over half an hour for Heikki Kovalainento stop the session again today, this time a faulty clutch sensor was to blame. After a long stint in the garage Kovalainen returned to action, only for a cracked exhaust to further blight his efforts. He finished the day at the bottom of the table, but recorded a respectable 68 laps.

Testing concludes at Jerez on Saturday, with more fine weather forecast.
