Brawn GP continued testing in Jerez today on the second day of the team's final test before the start of the new Formula One season. Race drivers Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Button were both in action and ended the day in second and third positions respectively on the timesheets.

Rubens was the first of the team's drivers on track to continue his programme from yesterday at the wheel of the BGP 001 car. He completed a series of set-up and tyre evaluations and covered 62 laps in the morning session.

Jenson took over the driving responsibilities for the afternoon and began a race simulation before a gearbox problem stopped the car out on the circuit and brought his running to an early conclusion after 12 laps.

Jenson will continue the team's programme in Jerez tomorrow for the final day of the test.
