Testing continued in Barcelona today for the OrangeArrows Team. Enrique Bernoldi joined Johnny Herbert for the team's second day of the four-day test.

Another dry day, though slightly overcast, allowed the team to run on grooved tyres throughout the session as work continued on set up of both the A22 and the A21 prototype. Enrique's day was spent running the A22 and focused on set up for the majority of the session. The team tested a number of aerodynamic settings and worked on suspension in addition to some tyre testing for Bridgestone.

Herbert ran in the A21 prototype car and continued the team's testing programme whilst they ironed out some minor electrical glitches.

Bernoldi ran a total of 68 laps and ended the session 7th fastest, while Herbert completed 43 laps and finished the day 5th fastest.

Herbert was happy with the progress made:
"We had a few problems this afternoon but overall I'm happy with the progress we've made over the last two days. We have made improvements to the A22 but still have a long way to go but we now know what areas we should be looking at"

Bernoldi continue at Barcelona tomorrow when he will be joined by Jos Verstappen.
