Jerez Testing – Day 2 Round-up

McLaren test driver Pedro de la Rosa proved to be the man to beat on the second day of testing at Jerez. De la Rosa put in a best time of 1:19.267, over half a second faster than second placed man, Mark Webber.

The Ferrari of Luca Badoer came in third, around a second behind de la Rosa, just edging out the BMW of Nick Heidfeld. Toro Rosso had two drivers in action, although Tonio Liuzzi did most of the driving. Liuzzi caused one of three red flags when he lost a rear wheel. Fortunately, the Italian driver did not crash. His team-mate Vettel was only on track for a short time late afternoon and finished bottom of the timesheet.

Jenson Button took out the revised RA107 and found his way to the sixth fastest time. Piquet Jr was seventh quickest for Renault with a whopping 111 laps completed. Piquet Jr caused the remaining two red flags when he took some off-track excursions one first thing in the morning, and one later in the afternoon.

Ralf Schumacher was out in the Toyota testing some new wing setups. He finished the day eighth, just ahead of the Williams of Nico Rosberg.
