Gary's work included front-end aerodynamic development and set-up work for the remaining four fly-away Grands Prix. In addition, the team started the on-track evaluation of the 2009 KERS system. The process will include a range of steps, which is initially focused on vibration and housing checks with the system in a passive mode. Driver for day two Pedro de la Rosa
