"In the morning at about ten past ten it started drizzling and then we had some light rain until 2 p.m. Until a quarter past four we were testing but then we stopped when the rain became too heavy as there was no need to risk anything. In the morning we skipped our usual installation lap and went straight into the programme. We managed to do a baseline run in the dry and later focused on balancing the car in the wet. We scanned different set-ups and worked on the brake system. Pedro's comments on the car were quite positive in the wet. Nevertheless we certainly hope for better and dry track conditions tomorrow."
What comes next
Tomorrow will be the fourth and final day of this week's Jerez test and Pedro de la Rosa will continue to drive.
