Programme: For the first day of this three day test Robert Kubica did aero work, concentrating on the front wings. He also tested different brakes, and shortly before the end of the day stopped out on the track as the team had planned to run the car dry.

The team wanted to give Timo Glock as many laps as possible, as this was his first proper day in the new car because to date he had experienced bad weather in his tests. He did an aero test as well as systems, diagnostics and recovery work.

Due to rain in the middle of the day the team lost a couple of hours of running and also there were numerous red flags.

What comes next: Tomorrow, Robert will continue with the programme he has started and has some new components to test. Nick Heidfeld, who will take over from Timo, will do aero testing and also work on the car's reliability.
