Programme: Lewis Hamilton returned to testing duties today at the Jerez circuit alongside Pedro de la Rosa. Work for Lewis was principally focused on aerodynamic testing, as he took to the track for the first time with no driver aids. Pedro spent the morning continuing yesterday's chassis programme before switching to running with the 2009 development Bridgestone Potenza slick tyres during the afternoon.

Lewis Hamilton:

"It was pretty cool to be back behind the wheel of my car again today, it has felt like a very long time since the Brazilian Grand Prix. I have missed my car! I have really kick started my preparations for the 2008 season today and there are only 101 days to go until Australia. I know the time is going to go really quickly, but I am feeling pretty impatient already!"

"It was the first time I have driven the car without driver aids and it was good fun. It does feel quite different and of course there is some adapting to do in driving style, but in GP2 we didn't have driver aids, so I have some recent experience of it. We also did some work on aero and chassis developments for next year's car, it was a productive day and we will continue in the same way tomorrow."
