Jerez Second Test Day 3 of 4 – Finally The Rain Stops

by F1Fan on February 19, 2010

After heavy rain throughout the night Jerez finally had some sunshine today. While remaining windy at least the wind dried the track early allowing the teams to finally get some dry weather testing in, using slick tires for the first time this week and the lap times dropped substantially.

Mark Webber in the Red Bull RB6 set fastest lap of the day the only Driver to break the 1:20 barrier today. Webber was joined at the top of the charts by Fernando Alonso and then Jenson Button in the Ferrari and McLAren respectively. Williams rookie driver Nico Hulkenberg drove well not only setting the fourth fastest lap less than two tenths behind Button but also completed the highest number of laps of any driver today, even after his test was cut short when the Williams FW32 stranded him on track with hydraulic problems.

Most of the teams managed to put on a good number of laps today the two exceptions being Kamui Kobayashi in the BMW Sauber who only managed 28 laps because of problems within the fuel system of the C29 and Lucas i Grassi in the Virgin Racing VR-01 completing only 34 laps.

Virgin Racing continues to swing between good and bad test sessions, reliable race pace seemingly out of their grasp, it will be interesting to see how tomorrows test turns out for them.
