Programme
Persistent wet weather hampered running for the majority of teams at Portimao. With much to be risked by running in the slippery conditions, the test team conducted a minimal on-track programme today, using a 2008-spec rear wing as a precautionary measure to increase downforce during the runs. Despite the weather, the team carried out a number of systems checks on the MP4-24 and will continue the programme tomorrow.

Driver for day two Pedro de la Rosa
Duration of test Four days (Jan 19-22)
