A productive day for Lotus Racing as Jarno Trulli took the Lotus Cosworth T127 challenger onto the Barcelona track and completed another 70 laps. With strong sunshine and dry weather conditions, the Lotus Racing team were again first out on track and ready to begin testing, developing and improving the car.

Chief Technical Officer Mike Gascoyne gave his end of day round up; "It was a productive day in terms of set up direction with Jarno. We were able to identify some problems with the set up in the car and establish clear direction to improve it. We still have a long way to go, and a lot of time to come from the car.

" We had a couple of minor hydraulics issues which stopped the car on track, but nothing major, so all in all it was a productive day and we're aiming to continue in the same vein tomorrow."

Jarno Trulli again picks up the wheel for day three of testing, and the team are looking forward to developing and progressing the car. Heikki Kovalainen then takes over on Sunday, for the final day of testing.
