Pedro stepped back into the MP4-23K KERS development car but his day's mileage was limited by a number of small issues with the device. Next week, the test team will conduct a one-car programme at the new Portimao track in Portugal, primarily focusing on KERS work with the 23K and collecting data from the new venue.
