Programme: While the team did not have a problem free day, the results of the test were positive. Robert Kubica worked on dampers while Nick Heidfeld on set-up in the morning and then aero during the rest of the day.

The air and track temperatures noted -- 9/16°C and 9/24°C respectively -- were for when the team were on the track, but there was a point when neither car was running when the temperatures went up several degrees.

What comes next: Nick stays for his second day, while Robert leaves and Sebastian Vettel will take over for the final day. The exact programme for each car will not be decided until the team starts running, as there is a planned engine change on Sebastian's car during the lunch break. However, the team will work on aero, cooling, systems checks and also aim to do longer runs.
