The first day of Honda Racing F1 Team's 2006 testing programme began at the Circuito de Jerez in Southern Spain this morning.

The weather was fine but very cold initially, which meant there was little running on track before 11am. As a result, Anthony Davidson worked through system checks in chassis 078-08 in the early part of the morning before going out on track in warmer conditions to run through basic set-up work and find a good balance in the car.

Davidson spent the afternoon session running through a tyre evaluation and completed his full test programme over an impressive 113 laps.

In chassis 078-07, James Rossiter also spent the early part of the morning in the garage completing system checks. Once out on track he ran through a front aero evaluation. Rossiter completed a further aero evaluation in the afternoon alongside a tyre programme, completing 105 laps today.

Davidson will continue in chassis 078-08 tomorrow, with new driver Rubens Barrichello joining the team for his first test. Barrichello will drive the 2005 chassis 007-06 before moving into chassis 078-07.
