Valencia Test Summary

by F1Fan on February 4, 2010

The Ferrari F10 and BMW Sauber F1 C29 were consistently the fastest cars over the recent three day Valencia test taking the fastest four lap times. Whether this is a predictor for the rest of the season is anybody’s guess but for what its worth here is a list of how the Drivers fared during the Valencia Test session.

Lewis Hamilton was the next fastest in the McLaren MP4-25, closely followed by Kubica in the Renault and then returning multiple F1 Champion Michael Schumacher who ended up mid pack, not bad for his first drive in the Mercedes GP

In the third day of testing Jamie Alguersuari set a very respectable lap time in the Toro Rosso, eclipsing his teammate and many other more experienced F1 drivers. The lap time was good enough to put him in 8th spot splitting the Mercedes GP cars of Schumacher and Rosberg.

Button ended up 10th fastest just ahead of Barrichello’s Williams. Vitaly Petrov did well in his first outing in a Formula One Car setting the 12th fastest time ahead of Williams second Driver Nico Hulenberg and Toro Rosso’s Sebastian Buemi.

It will be interesting to see which team will have made the most progress in next weeks Test in Jerez, and whether or not Ferrari and BMW SAuber F1 will still be leading the field.
